If the handling is "great" now, then you'll be absolutely blown away if/when you ditch those turds of a tire. I speak from personal experience, not reading others' comments - on both an E90...

My car definitely never had a changer and did not need to be coded to see the USA*Spec, so I doubt that's the issue. Could be wonky firmware in your head unit? I've read that a lot of the firmware...

It may be an issue with the lightning connection not being 100% compatible with the (older) USA*Spec box. I have one working great in my ZHP, and had the DSP version in my Z4MC, but it always sounded...

The more I've used it now, I'm even happier with it. It's a great solution. Not cheap, but sounds great and is SO much faster than any iPod adapter.

That cheap alternative above is mind-bending....

Congrats on your purchase! You've made a fine choice. Though I may be a bit biased. :)

Will I fit?

I'm loosely considering swapping my Z4MC for a Z3MC (S54 of course). I'm 6'1, about 240 lbs, and fit fine in my Z4. (I fit better when I was 30 lbs lighter, but I digress). Assuming the Z3MC I find...

If these reviews don't convince you - then good luck.

The Conti Comfort Kit is probably a better option than the BMW kit. Has a simpler method of connecting the goo bottle. Tire Rack carries it.
