I say leave 'em stock. I think the black wheel look is played. Can you say rice?

But until then...

As CAL says, you're overdue for the fluid change so you should do that regardless. But the issue is more likely the shift linkage. It may be that it is a bit worn at the mileage you describe or it...

Hi Z4.

The 320i (not sold here in the US) is the lowest horsepower of the E90 series. It is the only model of the E90 series with a 4 cyl engine. And the one you're looking at has the added weight...

Well, kind of a disparate group of autos there. The 645ci and the 650i are large, powerful luxury coupes. The 550i is a powerful, largish luxury sedan and the 335i is a smaller sports/luxury coupe.

HOLY MOLY! Looks like the BMW crossed over into on coming traffic. Luckily it doesn't look like any of the vehicle were going more than 30-40 mph. Still, a lot of energy was dissipated.

I have a set on my MR2. Great stick, good turn in, and reasonable wear. Even good in the wet. But since my MR2 is a garage queen, doesn't matter to me.

They are a bit noisy on some pavement.

Diesel vs M3? Seriously?

Drive them both. Unless you are concerned about mileage or range per tank the M3 is the far superior car.
