This forum is the WORST!

For my productivity. ha ha

I just wanted to say hello and thank the forum members for their freely sharing of information. I am amazed at how much information is available on this forum.

For me, I recently became the second owner of an 06 330I sedan (manual). I absolutely love the car.
I bought the car after working on my daughters Z3 and a friends 330. They are just really well made cars.
Planning to use it as my daily driver. There is nothing wrong with the car, but I am looking at changing the aged items, from suspension to speakers. The previous owner took very good care of the car.

Anyway, hello. Thanks for the great community.

Welcome, and we understand, these cars just make you want to drive them. If you really want to put yourself threw hell get a M series!

for us that have been around, it really isn't as good as it used to be. There were some 16 y.o. back in 2007 with new 335's, but today, it's the rule and not the exception.

But, there is also a lot of invaluable info as well. It's hilarious when you get people with 75 posts acting like Donald Trump (not you, along the lines of your subject)...poseur and newbie come to mind lol

That is funny 3s4u2. The guy who helped me find the 330 says he is my (crack) dealer and the 330 is the gateway to the M. I really hope not. I have enough addictions already.

John 070, I completely understand. It is evident in the posts. I suspect it is inevitable as the cars become more affordable as they age. Price of success I guess.

Welcome!! Hope we can help with questions! I like my stock speakers, curious as to why you would change them.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Paco89, the suspension on the 330 feels very noodelly to me. It is a little harsher on bumps than I would expect and loose when quickly changing directions, with a little more lean than I would like. I am not trying to turn this into a track car, but can tell the suspension is tired. I will likely keep the stock springs and change the dampers and bushings. I 'think' I want to upgrade the sway bars, but will likely wait until the rest is complete to see if I still feel that way. Suspension is a funny thing. The best you have ever driven is the only thing you have to compare with. I used road race motorcycles and know the joy of good suspension.

Lol, I love the way you type speakers and I read suspension! Sorry Paco89

After some research and talking to Ken at Musicar, I agree. Stock is the best option unless you are completely upgrading the whole system. I will be on the hunt for the best price for the 2 ohmers.

Okay, but it looks pretty much like the other 296,978 that were sold that year.

Carefully chose the 330 for that very reason Mike. Just hoping the virus doesn't spread causing me to start looking at the M's.
You know when you made a good decision is when instead of buyers remorse, you are asking yourself why you waited so long.

Its an old one, I lived in Japan for ten years or so. Thanks for the welcomes. I have been to New Braunfels, nice town. Actually lived in Corpus Christi for a time too.

Ha, the Cherry Blossom tree looks like it could be in Japan, but it is outside of DC.
