Thumbs up New E90 member here in Chicago!

Hey all! I've been reading the forums like crazy and finally pulled the trigger on a Sparkling Graphite '07 E90 328xi. I almost had a 2007 E90 335i, but I was a day too late. It all worked out, as my wife is a million times happier now that she can now drive it as well.

It came with 59k miles and some absolutely nasty 16" stockies. So my first mod (literally the day after buying it), was tracking down some staggered 162's on Craigslist and some rubber (thanks Gary!). IMO, it improved the looks 4,000%.

By day I work for a private investment firm out in the west burbs, but by night I can often be found behind the lens of my DSLR.

Look forward to talking/meeting you all!

MJ

Thanks all! Quick question, where do you guys bring your Bimmers for regular oil changes/service, if you don't do it yourself?

I had an Audi a couple yrs ago and I used to bring it to Renn Art in Arlington Heights, but I'm not sure when it comes to Bimmers and I'm not a big fan of Dealerships.
