not really... afaik, there's a e93 M3 in the area, a black e90 335i, and a aw e90 335i, dropped with bbs LM with roof rack, blackline, but that car didn't have a black hood tho.

Ok so my rear wheel is cracked and leaking air, $200 to fix it but the structural integrity could still be compromised. They are powder coated and a new one might not match.

I got the green light from the wife to get a new set of wheels (and sell the old ones). They have to fit my new PSS so I narrowed it down to:

19" Morr VS8.2's
19" BBS CH-R
**Moor VS10's? Not sure release date yet.

open up your choices Will, look into Volks monoblock, you won't regret it =)
RE030 is a good pick, or VR G2 looks sexy too

No the 19x10 (20et) is too aggressive for a non M.

I'm actually considering buying Apex ARC-8 18x9 square setup. Light as hell and priced very well! Too bad I just bought new Pilots Super Sports. Dan you need new tires? 235/35/19 - 265/30/19

She is stock.... For now, gotta give me time just picked her up 2 days ago

Noob question, is there a local shop in Sac that selling e9x parts? Like angel eyes/sidemarkers/interior/dome lights?


E92 - St00k lyfe by Trevor Thompson, on Flickr

But today has been a bad day, I was turning right onto an intersection and a truck went around me and cut me off. The only way I could avoid a collision was to merge right onto a curb This resulted in major curb rash, crushed ego, and 4 error codes (which I will post and hopefully some will chime in?)

congrats! finally got yourself an e92!
unfortunately, no shop local in sac sells those... get on the vendor section, they have good price, down side is waiting time... usually 2-3 days from bay, 4 days from socal the most.

is your car CPO or still under warranty? if it is, i would bring it to dealer and check it out. if not, i'll say IPB at downtown, they specialist at BMW/Porsche.

Thanks for the quick reply. The car has warranty but not sure what it covers, I will be going in tomorrow to find out, if not I'll give IPB a shot!

Whats weird is that these codes will appear and disappear frequently, so I think its more of a warning cause the impact was bad... Just my luck can't even make it a week before thrashing the thing

That's exactly what I was thinking! Hehe, but I have grown to like these wheels not sure why. I'll space and drop and see if I still like them.

Well I'm sorta new to the BMW ownership. I've had MINIs before and wife and I just switched to two 3-series. I have a 2008 335i and she has a 325. Hopefully we'll see you guys driving around, throw a wave my way!

I don't really have any mods planned at this point. I need some new shoes... Suggestions?

Want to buy my 19x8.5 19x9.5 gunmetal Alufelgen CS-7s (CSL style) ? I'll give you a great price. There is a hairline crack on one of the rears, had it looked at twice and it's a quick easy fix and there is no structural damage. There is little to no curb rashing, I took very good care of these, some of the paint was lightly scratched 1 inch when the new tires were put on, other than that they are flawless.

Those faults are probably due to hitting the curb It may have knocked your steering assembly out of balance, hence the DCS fault. Do you get a yellow "brake" light and have issues with your blinkers too?

What part of the area are you from? When you mean new shoes do you just want tires or wheels + tires? I highly recommend Michelin Pilot Super Sports, but they are a tad pricey. If on a budget, Continental Contact DW and Hankook V12's are both amazing tires. If you need wheels, see my post above if you are interested, I also have a set of Nitto Invo's to go with them.

Hey congrats.

Bummer about that curb bash happening so fast, seems like those things always happen soon as you get a car. Can't let it frustrate you, within a few weeks of when i got my car, I got my right front bumper scraped by a car in a parking lot (no note of course). Was just a good excuse to pick up the mtech bumper I had been eyeing

I'll think about the wheels And yes I have the yellow brake light on my dash cluster, but my blinkers seem to work fine? So would a simple alignment fix this? Or is the the steering wheel assembly?

I had DCS, DTC, Brake, and another fault which showed up on the iDrive. Turned out my SZL module needed to be replaced, your's could be different. Sometimes it's just a battery connection, others it's the steering wheel alignment.

Let me know about the wheels, they were the same ones you saw at Infineon. If I can't sell them to someone local, they will go up on Craigslist.

Thinking about changing my exhaust up, looks like people with free flowing exhaust and upgraded turbos are having issues.

Is anyone interested in an AE Exhaust? I would like to trade for your stock e90 + cash for the AE.

woohoo, gone for my baby shopping day in my only day off...
but this morning when i getting out in the morning, spotted a black e90 335i when i was getting out from my neighborhood.

Black E90 335i, possible stock ZSP suspension, with lipped, black face wheels, with license plate "BLK 335i", getting out onto El Centro Rd and left turn on Del Paso Rd and getting on I-5 south, are you in the forum by any chance?
