Tony Jackson's E91 Wagon

I've had this car for a little over a year now and figured it's time to start a journal. I missed documenting quite a few projects with this car already that I wish I had.

My wife and I bought this 2009 328i with 102k miles on. It's Alpine White with Saddle Brown interior and auto trans. The wagon was in decent shape but needed a few things addressed when we first got it. Below are a list of fixes and upgrades we've done since owning it. I'll include photos of the projects I actually did document.

Mods/Fixes:
Replaced Inner Passenger Door Handle
Replaced Driver Door Lock Actuator
Replaced Dash Vents with non-broken vents
Installed BMW All-Weather Mats
Installed Eibach Pro-Street-S Coilovers
Apex Arc8 in 17x9 +30
Falken FK510 in 255/40/17
Replaced Rear Wheel Bearing
Replaced Valve Cover Gasket


November 2018 when we first picked it up. It came with the roof bars and tint.





June 2019 we installed the Eibach coilovers and Apex wheels.









This is our daughter who thinks the car looks exactly the same as when we got it.



Shortly after this beach trip the rear wheel bearing started making some terrible noises. I ordered the wheel bearing kit from BMW of Riverside and waited until my holiday break to tackle the job. It took me a solid 3 days to get everything apart and back together again.











And all back together





I'll update more once something else breaks or we make another upgrade.

Got to love a girl that's not afraid of getting her hands dirty.

Thanks! Super happy with the 17x9 fitment.

She's been wrenching with me in the garage for the last ten years and loves it. So lucky.

I work for Eibach North America and coincidentally we had put these E9X coilovers on sale to clear out the rest of our stock so I grabbed one of the last sets. The part number is 2085.711 if you get lucky and find a set on the shelf somewhere. These are monotube shocks and ride very good.

how do you like the FK510s?
they're currently on my short list for summer tires.

specifically, are they noisy?
Every reviewer says they give up some performance for comfort, and that's what I'm after.
It's not a track car for me, it's a long distance cruiser and I like it quiet.

I really like the FK510s. I think they're a great commuter tire. They look great. They're wearing great and I don't think they're noisy at all. But i'm probably not the best person to comment on the noise as my other two cars have no carpet or sound deadening.

I don't mind a little feedback, but these continentals I had at 40% tread were really starting to annoy the dog out of me at freeway speeds.

so if they're reasonably quiet for a performance tire I'm sold.

the cost certainly helps the sale.
a staggered set for my wagon will be less than $500 shipped to me door.

Man I'm always so jealous how cars age in dry climates. Your hub looks the same as it came out of the factory. Here is mine after a +10 years in the rust belt (before and after pics after sandblasting):
