My first e90

2007 330i m sport auto sapphire black.
Loving how it drives but the rft and m-tech suspension is a bit harsh.










I struggled to find one with the spec i wanted so settled for this when it came up for sale.

Few things i want to add
Heated front seats
xenon headlights
aftermarket sat nav

I'm for Dundee in Scotland and finding a coder up here is proving a task.
Does anyone know of a good coder in north east Scotland?

I never had time to dress the tyres or polish the exhaust tips so go easy

Think it's Brook St in Dundee, not far from the west port area. Not sure what they would charge but will certainly be cheaper than John Clark BMW. They certainly were when I used them for servicing and a DSC hydro pump repair.

OP, look in the Suspension/Brakes/Chassis section of this forum:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=38

for lots of discussion on how to improve the ride quality of M-Sport/RFT set-ups. Cheapest solution seems to be:

1) Ditch the runflats for normal tyres
2) Fit Koni FSD dampers.

Hope that helps.
