Hey guys, another new guy here. Just bought a 2014 535d M-sport. Had some trouble with a sticky door lock but the dealership fixed it. Love this car! Torque everywhere. 26mpg around town and 40+ on the highway.

Are there any meet ups in the Sacramento area?

Thats nuts dude. Glad you're ok.

I was, um, driving briskly next a guy who happened to be in a GT-R and the tire place inflated the tires to like 55 or 60 psi, I forget, but it had the same effect of "ice skating" so I know the feeling.... not a safe one

New here. Picked up an 06 330I with the sports package, (115,500 on the clock) and possibly "more", 3 weeks ago. The "more" is (because the dealer only listed the Sports) heated seats, a door in the back seat (skis I believe?) so possibly the cold weather option? I think I'm still "finding" stuff the car does/has. Still can't figure out the damn radio, so it stays on ZROCK.
Now as far as location, I'm in the "far" northern reaches of Cali, near Chico. Not much up here as far as I can tell, club wise and it's funny the looks you get in a small mountain town. Pretty much the car gets stared at whenever I take it out.

New here. Just picked up an 08 335i auto with 130k for low, trying to figure out if the car is worth keeping. Leaking from the oil pan gasket, expansion tank and the transmission feels sluggish. Wondering if it would be worth it to fix the issues (I work in a repair shop) or just try to flip the car. No waste gate rattle, HPFP and injectors replaced 10k miles ago. I don't believe the transmission was ever serviced, it shifts funny but doesnt slip.

Would it be worth it to fix the issues? body and interior is clean.

I just made a showcase video on someone's garage. I'm in the bay area and was wondering if anyone had any boost builds I could cover. I have a ton of NA builds lined up which are my thing, but I don't want to leave out the boosted love. I'm especially curious if anyone could meet up to do a video between the 24th and the 27th. shoot me a message on my channel or on my website at https://peuropean.com/contact-us/ (website is 90% done but a WIP) Enjoy!

What's up everyone,

My name is Hai and I just picked up my 07 335i sedan earlier this week; and boy is it a fun machine to drive. It does need some maintenance and the typical oil pan leak address, but it was a decent buy. Looking forward to meeting some of you Bay Area folks, so let me know if there are any meets coming up.

Is it just me or do you guys rarely see any 335's in the bay area? I only see 328's and I get super lonely...

Depends on the neighborhood, I see enough. The other factor is this thing called "lease", get into a BMW for cheap.

Curious too. Wildcat Canyon Rd to Bear Creek Rd seems like a fun drive.
