I like the Bubble Tea, Milk Tea and any other Chinese drinks from Bubble Express in Cross Road Mall better.

So THAT'S how Bubble Express stays in business! I honestly don't understand why B.E. gets customers, but everyone has their own taste. My complaint is that their tea base is pre-mixed with sugar (overly sweet) and they always put way too much artificial creamer. My other complaint is that they close before the rest of the food court does and that's just silly.

My bro-in-law likes Bubble Express too, but he knows my wife and I won't go to BE.

HOWEVER, their popcorn chicken and popcorn squid ROX. It's very yummy. B.E. is owned by a family friend of Hunan Pearl in Lake Oswego, OR (I like that place). The owner claims their tea is very high quality. While that may be so, I can't taste anything but the creamer. =]

Hey, not to get even further off topic, but that tea place next to the DMV also sux. They might have really nice dried tea leaves for sale, but their milk tea also has too much sugar and creamer.

I wish Tien Ren would open up a place here.....that's good stuff.

I work first shift as well in a lowered JB E92 w/o a front plate w/ stock 197's on in the West lot. I haven't seen your car yet, but I saw this black E90 with black wheels and a AC front lip.

BTW is this car your DD? If so, what tires do you run during the winter?

saw a gray 335 today....it was stock everything except for the trunk which had a weird looking spoiler on it.

Question tho.....do the new 335s have black window trims? The older 323s, 325s (e46s and e90s) had black window trims while the 330s and 335s had chrome ones. However the 335 today I saw (I am assuming it was a 335 cuz thats what the badge said and it had 2 exhaust tips) had black window trim. Is that normal now? Unless I wasn't looking correctly.

To tell ya the truth I just bought my car at the beginning of the summer, but I've got a nice set of VMR's waiting for next summer. I'm going to raise my car up (after the end of summer bbq) to the top of their travel and use my stock 197's for winter, I'm not sure what I'm going to do for tires yet, but I've got uhp's on here right now and they aren't cuttin it on a slammed car with rain :~\ I've seen a sports pacakge space grey e92 pre lci in the far out lot by the 747 but not a black one...I've seen that guy in the e90 as well, its pretty sick! I park in the west lot as well, right by the gate at the farthest south west corner of the factory in that first lotby the gate, if your ever there I'm like the only red car in the lot can't miss it

I was leaving downtown, heading back home at 9:50a, and saw preLCI AW e90 335 on the 5S just before the 405E split. Tints, lowered on 19s (couldn't see front). I looked over and couldn't see anything inside - was gonna wave hi.

....and yeah, my car is FILTHY (I know I know I know)

As far as I know, after going thru the 'build your own' before we bought the e90 335xi on NYE, the black trims (Shadowline exterior trim) are part of the $1350 Sports package. I'm gonna assume that most 335s are dealer ordered with zsp. I have seen a few LCI 335s WITHOUT the black trims, but it's rare.

That's my observation after looking around buddy.

Are you referring to the side closet to the Factory and 526 in the west lot? If so, I am going to start parking in that area next week.

Yes, right there at the corner of the factory, first lot right outside the badge reader turnstyle. Hopefully we'll run into eachother ^_^ like I said you can't miss my car and I'm usually right in the first aisle

Yeah, I'll dig up a pic of my 2010 lci 335xi. Just about every lci 335 around Bellevue has black trim. Not all the 328s have black trim tho.

gotcha....I guess its something on newer e90s. In the past, I've always used that to differentiate 330/335s from 323s/325s
