Hi everyone

Just recently joined after a long a very drawn out purchase had been looking at 135's, 335's but couldn't find a car that had the right spec and low miles in the end I purchased what I think is a stunning E92 LCI 330i.

First impressions are that its not got anywhere near the amount of torque of the turbo cars but my god does it rev cleanly and pulls all the way to the red line. Still learning how the car behaves but loving it so far.

Got a couple of modifications planned but want to get the car set up properly first so having it hunter'd on Friday. The just need to get the diagnostic/coding software so be prepared for a few questions on that from me over the next few weeks I'm sure.

Matt

Hi All,

Just got back into a BMW after a three year Honda gap.. boy I missed the ultimate driving machine.. !

I'm now in a 2006 BMW 335i 4 Door Auto M Sport.

Not really bothered about all the story's on overheating etc.. etc.. as the car just drives fantastically well and I'm not looking to become the next Schumacher in this car either so very pleased for now

Hey everyone, thought I'd come day hello.

Put a deposit down on a 56 E91 320D M Sport in Titanium Silver, it's got black leather, heated seats, Bluetooth, privacy glass and sun shades. Done 163k so I'll mainly be doing maintenance, making it look mint again as I resist the temptation to slam it and sort the fitment out!

I'm a photographer, currently studying at Bath Spa university, and specialise in Automotive stuff, so I'd love to show you some of my work, and it's also why I went for a Diesel E91, it needs to be a workhorse!

Hi all,
I've finally joined after looking on here for some time. I started looking here after discovering that one of my rear alloys had a nice crack in it (hence the user name, BMW paid for this which was nice), I took that as a good enough reason to ditch the runflats and got Conti 5P's. Recently fitted the Alpine upgrade which I'm looking to get coded.

Garage List
steering groan!

my wife reversed car into skip, how do you miss a ten tonne bright yellow skip? Anyway having the damage repaired, the guy at the garage said that there was a groan on the steering(fullish lock) at low speeds i.e when setting off/parking at low speeds. He also complained about the steering being very heavy. He said the tyres were only at 15 psi. I have to admit Ive never checked them in a year (sorry)which I will do In future.
The body-shop guy who is really friendly and honest has a 530i and he thinks the steering is much lighter on his, I am a bit ham fisted and really like the heavy steering as it feels like I am doing something, I really don't want light steering or I might as well get a Hyundai i10?.
Having said that we are going on a family holiday to France approx, 1000mls each way, I am concerned if there are any well documented faults? such as steering rack or power steering pump? my sprinter van and previous cars have all made similar noises on full lock, any suggestions appreciated

Hi,

Matured from a 1 series into a 318D M Sport Auto as I queue on the M62 every day. Was fed up with the clurch judder.

Love the car but am a little shocked at the mpg. I'm off work at the moment recovering from a knee op and so only doing short journies and getting about 35 mpg. Hopefully it'll do better on a run.

Great forum by the way.

Mark.

Hello,

Bought my first BMW a few weeks ago - 2008 320i Estate. Moved from a 4x4 so the coming winter should be interesting...

Hi guys!

Had a Focus RS until last Friday when I got an 11 plate M3. And I absolutely love it.



I'll be asking all the usual questions about security, upgrades (especially exhaust), and so on. Nice to meet you all.

Some lovely cars already in this intro thread!

I've yet to buy mine, but will imminently be buying a 2006/07 e92, likely a 325i

Lots of mods already in mind, starting with leather interior (if I buy a cloth version), paddle steering wheel (will be buying auto), and lip spoiler.

Hi all,

New here and been an owner of an E46 320D for over a year but have just snapped up an E91 320D M Sport with all the goodies, pro nav, heated electric seats, the works with 42k on the clock on an 08 plate.

I pick it up on Friday and can't wait

Newbie saying Hi :-)

Hi all, new to this forum and checking in to say hi

I'm hopefully picking up my new toy on Friday it's an E93 330i on a 57 plate in sparkling graphite with nav etc.

Former bmw's owned over the years have included an E30 325i convertible, E36 320i, E36 M3 evo. Been driving vauxhalls last few years and I'm trading in my Insignia vx-line for the E93.

A bit about me, I'm a paramedic working in London and based at Heathrow. I'm looking forward to being part of the gang and mod wise I'm looking at fitting some 64w CW LEDs as a start and get myself a wind deflector. I'm sure there will be more to come but I will trawl through the various options and see what takes my fancy

All the best

Jon
