Hi ikbs,

The Euro-spec Inline 6 uses a cylindar type air filter instead of a Flat panel filter as in the US-spec E90.

I have been using the K&N filter for about 3 months now. At the very beginning, I noticed more of a freer-reving engine....thus the engine is reacting faster. It is not a big difference though....so, kind of got used to it after a while. A little increase in driving pleasure I would say.....(too bad at the expense of a little higher fuel consumption)

Our HK car's are Euro Spec with the cylinder shape filter !!

where did you get yours and do you mind telling how much they worth ? (cylinder shape filter)

I did a bit of research and saw people selling flat panel filter; I thought thats what we have!

I couldn't do a check cuz I'm not around the car now

19" tyres for E93

My 335i Cabrio will arrive in Aug and I want to upgrade to 19" wheels. After having checked with some tyre stores I found out that it's quite difficult to get 19" tyres (225/35 front, 255/30 rear). The only thing those guys kept recommending is Dunlop Sport Max. There is no Bridgestone or Toyo. If any of you know where to get more selections, please let me know.

Hi hkbmwenthusiast,

I was in the same case as you 3 months ago....

I insisted on using the factory recommendation on 225-35-19 and 255-30-19. There is not much choice.

There only brands that has both of these sizes are Pirelli P Zero Nero and Continental Sport Contact 3.

However, Continental HK distributor is having some problems with the German company. So, they don't have anything to sell right now.....(that's what I heard). Therefore, it onlys leave you Pirelli P Zero Nero.....this is what I am using right now.

Maybe the newer Pirelli P Zero Hero will also have these sizes too...

Hope this helps

19" wheels

Hi, RikuE90:

The G-90 tuned E90 pictures you posted are awesome. Do you know if those G-Power Diamond wheels are available in HK? I want to find specs of the wheels but couldn't find it on the web. Any idea?

thanks.

hkbmwenthusiast,

I found this link...take a look! There is a downloadable spec to show the spec of the rims.

http://www.g-power.de/769.html?&L=1

http://www.g-power.de/index.php?id=7...1&uid=2099&L=1

I think you can import these rims directly from the company.
