Thumbs up Prospective e93 owner signing in...

Circumstances dictate I need a 4 seater now, so am selling my beloved Merc SLK. I find myself in love with e93s and have been using the site to find out all about them and the E90 series in general and found there was great info here so i joined.

Anyway, after mucho reading, I've decided I want a 330i and found one locally which I hope to get. Its an 07 330i SE with just over 50k. I was about to buy it but he had to remove his private plate and now we've had to wait for the new V5 to come through, but it was done on Saturday and DVLA normally get the V5s out in aday or two when its done online. So I'm impatiently waiting on a phone call.

Main plan is to drive it, but would like to tint the back 3 windows, paint the silver wheels to a graphite sort of colour and I'd love a dual exit exhaust like 335s have, but think I have a solid bumper,so cant change the diffuser? Ill do something with the exhaust as I love to hear a 6 pot singing!

That's enough waffle from me, see you on the forums!

Hello All

I've recently acquired what the seller has told me is the only N55 Manual Touring in the country. I'm not sure if that is true but I haven't seen any others mentioned anywhere in the last few weeks of looking at threads about 335i tourings. Only had it a few days and I think its amazing, very impressed. Looking forward to fixing all the little things that need sorting over the next year or so with everyone's help.

So it looks like I haven't posted here yet!

Even though since 2005 I'm currently running BMW numbers 6 and 7, so maybe I'll just post photos of what I have now.

Not really a "Newbie" as such have posted a few times but no former introduction. Coming up to 5 years of ownership of my 2011 320d efficient dynamics in sapphire black. Granted that I should have done far more research prior to purchasing it but I'm happy with it after the huge hiccup in the first year of ownership. Had the dreaded timing chain issue after close to a year of ownership. Cost a whopping 5k to put right. After that I thought I'll keep it till it's run into the ground. Since then there has been only one other problem and that was earlier last week. The crank shaft pulley came straight off whilst the missus was driving it. That cost just over £300 in labour and parts to put together. Other than that, there is the usual cost of servicing etc.

What have I modified so far? Well, I've redone the sound system twice now. Cutting a long story short, I now have the Pioneer 80prs as my source unit. Have the JBL GTR 7535 amp. Got rid of the rear speakers. Have Audison underseats, MBQUART components up front and an Alpine Type R 12" sub in the boot. Yes I know the purists would have opted for me to keep the stock head unit and to go for a DSP instead but the headunit was lacking features which were important to me.

As far as the inside is concerned, the steering wheel, gear knob and hand brake lever have been changed to the Msport equivalent. I have also opted for for the split armrest which makes a difference on my long commutes. The next thing on my list will be msport seats. They need to be LCI seats. Debating whether to do leather or stick to cloth. That'll probably be in the summer most likely as I don't have a garage to store the seats etc and neither is the weather conducive at present. Other mods I'm considering are changing the wheels, lowering springs and maybe tinting the windows. Not too concerned about the body kit.

If you guys have any suggestions let me know. Thanks 👍🏾

BMW newbie here!
Owned RenaultSports for the past ~12 years and was quite active in the forum scene.
If anyone's interested; https://cliosport.net/threads/nickso...s-blog.606272/
Grabbed myself an LCI 335d from a friend as I'm travelling more for work - and loving it so far (much nicer to see ~50mpg than the 20 odd I was getting!)

Dived straight into coding - so I'll probably be asking no end of questions in there!

Cheers

More BMW addiction

So following on from my recent post I bought a Z4MC as an early Christmas present for myself on 21 December!

My E90 will be staying, but my E86 3.0Si is up for sale.

Anyway I guess everyone likes a photo, so here it is! Sorry it's dirty, but an M is dirty anyway!
