welcome! I'm local, I know there's running around the area but I haven't met up with anyone. We should probably do a roll call come spring and get something going locally.
Sorry for late response. I would be down for that if I can ever get the time. Have five boys and an amazing wife that take up a lot of my time.

Hey guys, I'm from Marietta. I just bought the 07 e92 335i.
It has had everything replaced from HPFP to turbos so lets hope all goes well.
I have 84,000 miles on it anyone know if that's around the time to do the walnut blasting? I have read very little about it.
And would like to know if its to late for a transmission fluid change? Thanks

First off - Congrats on the car. Hope you enjoy it... Here is what I'd do with that car.... first off, if everything has been replaced as you said - that is good - I'd ask somebody at a BMW dealer to pull up the service records and see if the sparks have been changed. I'd then probably make the investment in the walnut blasting (and change the sparks at the same time if you have the cash - and if they haven't been done in the last 45k miles). Then I would talk to whoever does the blast about the fluid changes - It is getting time for that to happen also... Do you know the history of the car you purchased? If its been passed around between people (more than 1 owner), then I'd make sure I did a good oil change, fluid changes, etc... never know who drove the car before you...

Yes, i have all the service records. Global Imports
1 owner took very good care of the car. My service light came on 2 days ago. Time for spark plugs, so i guess ill do all of the above.

Whats up...Again...

I posted in this thread in early December right when I got my 335i. Well about two and a half weeks later, the night after Christmas, I hit a deer.

The Damage



It happened in my hometown in North Carolina. The body shop, Crown Paint and Body, said it would take 4 weeks to fix and that I could get it on the 24th. They said I could pick it up on 17th a week early and after about 5 minutes of driving my fiance who was driving ahead of me said the drivers side headlight was dim. After further inspection it was clear that they didn't code/align it. Then the DTC failure light came on. So I took it to the Crown dealership as instructed. It turned out that the aftermarket headlight assembly was not working correctly and that they would install a new BMW unit, and that the steering angle sensor had gone bad.

I finally got the car back last weekend and so far so good, however the hood needs to be adjusted, which I'll have to take it to them next time I'm in town.

Total cost was about $8,500-9,000.

I went to the Caffeine and Octane yesterday but it was late, about 10:20ish, I looked at a couple of 1 and 3 series parked next to each other that I thought might have belonged to some of you. Next month I'll definitely get there earlier.
