Actually the E92 hood style is from vrs but look in the middle. An E90 hood pops up like an M3, and E92 cuts down.
actually it cuts down and there is no hump look closely..

Ahh yes Project Erica. Isn't the hood just like yours? I like that style better for E90.

Hi guys. Nubee here. Just got my first bimmer yesterday. 2006 330i manual xmission silver on black interior sport/premium package. 83000 miles. Got this bad boy for $18k plus $2k of 36000 miles or 3 years of bumper to bumper warranty. Fairly good shape. A little curb rash on the 162s but overall awesome shape. Brought it to Bavarian motorsport in Milpitas for a pre-purchase inspection and they gave me the thumbs up.. Hoooo hoooo. Very interested scouring the threads here for possible mods I can do to this bad boy. Currently thinking of replacing the manual shift knob, Any suggestions? Bimmian.com has the brushed aluminum illuminated one. Anyone familiar with this?

IG are snapshots of peoples' lives which I'm down with because that saves room for long ass convos per post. Tumblr has been the playground for hipsters, wannabe-fashionista and stuff. It's pretty played out but props to those who post insightful shizznits.

Where do you guys get new tires with good price in San Jose/Sunnyvale area? I want to get some AD-08 or Direzza *spec for the 328i and the place I usually go for tires , America's Tire doesn't carry either one so.

Thanks for helping

No no I mean I want to buy new tires for the 328 in my sig. I'm not that brave to buy used tires, and I have no idea which stores the regulars here use for new tires. The car came with those OEM RE050A RFT and I want some none-RFTs so.

Tirerack is always a good place to start Get a general idea of price range you may spend for the tires you're after.
