Hi guys, so I'm looking to do a lot of the maintenance myself on my 2005 325i e90.

Just wondering since I'm looking to FCPEURO

Do I select the 2006 version since it's US BASED? As I don't want to buy the wrong service kit and rotas/break pads for the car.

Also is the AUS version of the 325i does it have the upgraded disa values? Or is it on another model/year?

Thank you.

No worries. Not sure if you've already ordered parts from FCP, I recently dealt with clickableautomotive and found them to be very good.

I did a lot of work on my 323i and found both FCPEuro and Clickable to be great. Bought most stuff from FCP as it worked out to be cheaper. Clickable is obviously faster (Aus stock) and shipping is cheaper on heavy stuff (e.g. brake rotors).

US 325i and Aus/EU 325i have different engines - the US model is downtuned 3.0L with a single stage manifold, and the EU model is a high tuned 2.5L with a three stage DISA manifold. Suspension, brakes etc should generally be the same though. Check RealOEM if unsure.

Def double check your part numbers on RealOEM
I personally use FCP for 90% of parts I buy
Might cost a few extra $ but they have great customer service and delivery is always quick (around about a week during covid) which is better then Aussie Post atm lol
