Wink just bought a 2006 330i

40K miles, black on black 6-speed..needs some love, new tires(they hummed pretty good 70mph), valve cover gasket seep, needs brake flush and cabin filter as well, both over due. Over all pretty happy, got her for $19K..needed a beater so I dont put a ton of miles on my E92 M3, plus the E92 guzzles gas..looking at Turner Motorsport Tune and a magnaflow exhaust, that's about it..

interior was super clean, one ding/chip, he wanted $19,700, i offered $18,700, finally got him to $19K...KBB was upper teens low $20's...it has Bridgestone RFT's, one tire was cupped badly and made a drone/rumble at 60+mph, so will ditch all 4 run flats ASAP...was looking at the new Kuhmo Le sports, run flats stink..thanks all

Those run flats are the biggest joke IMO. BMW should have just designed the car with a cheap spare tire like all the other cars. Glad that the 330 only needs easy DIY repairs. I got the Michelin Pilot Sports because they have decent grip and last well over 50k. If I wasnt wanting my tires to last as long I would have gotten the BFG G Force KDW 2. Those tires are sick with the flame tread pattern.

Congrats! My e90 with 100k is my "nice" car and my e36 my DD but I wouldn't even call the poor 19 year old 325 my "beater" lol.

I think TMS uses the AA tune, I am going with that tune from them since I have a commercial account with Turner. The magnaflow exhaust shows up next week. As far as the beater....Well when I have an e92 M3, Z4 28s-drive M-sport, F10 528i and a F30 328i..then yes she is a beater..will see if I can get some more pics of our business associates McLaren MP4 for you..
