New guy wants to say Hi

Hi guys,
Traded in my beloved Mini Clubman S with a 323i Touring last Dec. Originally 323i wasn't my choice but it's the only model with discount - full options (no iDrive) under $400k, couldn't ask for more huh....... considering more or less the same amount I paid for the Clubman S.

It's slow but smoooooth as butter! Same as the Mini, DS mode is my norml mode!

Cheers,
Chiu

Welcome to the forum...... I'm also a big fan of Touring but I orginally wanted to buy a 335 Touring though!! However, I jumped to the E92 335 due to the pairs of sport seats being offered.... Enjoy your ride!

Thank you guys

Nice color combo superdx. The E92/93 sports seats are very nice indeed!

Has anyone replaced their RFT's to non-RF ones? I want to update to 18" wheels with non-RFTs, Michelin PS2 a good choice?

To be honest, nothing wrong with RFT if you are mainly city commute. For tyre suggestions, depends on who you will talk to, most guys/gals in this group are using:

Yokohama Advan AD08
Michelin PS2
Bridgestone RE11
Hankook Ventus S1 Evo
Continental Sport Contact 3 (CSC3)
Pirelli PZero Rosso

Good luck in your shopping

Well Well, Welcome another safe/slow 323i driver to the minority !

I drive a E93 323i.

Primarily a sloppy weekend driver cruising around Island Eastern Corridor with roof open, but obliged to drive fast in the meet....

Who needs to drive fast to enjoy their ride when they have TOP DOWN tho??

I've only recently taken a convertible for a spin, and I must say I'm pretty impressed at the feeling with no roof (although I still think having a little sunroof and higher structural rigidity is still higher on my personal priority list)...

Agree who needs to drive fast with a convertible . How nice it will be to have one cruising along the winding road in Sai Kung (where I live ), at least the super sunroof of the Touring is a compensation.......

Thanks little croco for the advice....... Choice, choice...... choice

One more tire to add to your list!

Dunlop Z1 Star Spec... it served me well for my old car, performed on-par with Yokohama AD07 in my books!

I saw quite a few convertibles with their tops down on the road today, a 360Z, a 911, an AMG SLK, so I decided to jump into the fray and took my top off loved the wind in my hair (what's left of it, anyways...)...
