Hey guys,
I've taken my sweet time to sign up, but i'm finally here. Yes another BMW nut who loves his car above all else.
First things first my ride is a BMW 325Ci MY2004 Individual //M Clubsport Edition, full sports package, M sport 18"s, full leather and black aluminium cube interior.
I've moved up to Sydney from Melbourne and am hunting for other bimmernuts who like taking these beautiful machines out for a drive!
Cheers
Brad

WELCOME Brad! Loving ya ride.
Well you came to the right place for finding Bimmernuts:rocks:
The Aus section threads usually start on topic and end very off topic so i hope you can adjust Other then that enjoy mate this forum is actually quite fun.

BTW if you want to meet up with a few of us post in the off topic thread, we have been itching to have a meet or cruise.

Cheers guys, thanks for the welcome!!
I wound up in Sydney because of work, and don't get me wrong, Sydney is a top spot, but yeah Melbourne is home and yes it does rock!!! (Good ol' home state bias).
Anyhow, i'm after some boys/girls who love to take beautiful bimmers out for a spin, as they say 1 is great but many is f**king awesomw!
Cheers!

Lol!! Sorry dude, my car didn't get out of the garage today! Even though i'd love for people to catch it out! I've still got the ol' VIC plates too btw, i'm living in the north shore so the nth shore and the city is probably the best place to catch me....

Yeah the wing was the same, rims and colour. Obviously wasn't yours, pretty sure I saw it at Norwest or it could have been around Neutral Bay this morning. Meh. Welcome anyway

Great photo! Did you try the E92 325i (or only just the 335i?) and how does that compare in feel to your 325?

I have driven the e90 325i Auto (got it as a courtesy car when mine was in for a service) and to be honest i wasn't impressed, the auto just felt much slower than my manual and it didn't respond very quickly when asked to. When i drove the 335i a few months later i was very impressed with how reactive it was from very low down, the 335i is a car which will result in speeding tickets though.

Yes, short bursts of acceleration 0-60km/hr is about all you can legally do around town!

Yes going 0-60 around town is unfortunately the only fun we have , but i have discovered something new. My mate bought his car some brembo's (6 pistons) so now what he does for fun is accelerate to 80km then slam breaks and watch the passenger get wiplashed:rocks: Sad but we have no other choice us city ppl. We have to make use of certain things and unfortunately for the passenger in my mates car it is the brembo's.
