Best Car I Ever Owned

2007.5 E92 335i Coupe $18K, consigned to drivelineac.com. You can see the pictures, and get most of the specs there, but I'd be happy to talk to any serious, potential buyer from Bimmerfest. I...

dk,
I'm crushed "Mr. Joed, Jr." didn't memorialize me. It does say Tourist Delivery, but that's it. That is the last straw - When we picked up the car in Sep. '07, the last 'fest' book was full,...

I have 53K on an '07.5 E92. After ED, it was delivered to US in Dec., and I had the 'original' Dinan tune that claimed 400hp and 400 #ft. Around '11 or '12 BMW required a reflash, and Dinan...

Thanx guys. The AMG version of the CLA will be north of $60K, just about the same as the 435 I have "built" on my computer. I will definitely go to see the 435, but from the pictures, the...

Has anyone tried the new 4 Series?

I think I am about to go over to the dark side. I have ordered the AMG version of the new CLA, but it won't be here until "probably" March, so I'm still sniffing around.

Not really; with Mr. Dinan's original tune (now replaced with Stage 2) the 335 has been perfect. It has the power of that era's M3 and a comfortable ride. Yes, it does float a bit when pushed, but...

Back-up camera for E92

I just bought a rear camera kit from Mod My Nav that was reasonable in price, & had it mounted professionally. MMN says that it should run 3-4 hours to DIY, but I opted for a pro. He charged for 2.5...
