They don't make a 330i or M3 wagon. I suppose I will go with the higher hp E90 wagon when I get tired of mine. I can say I'd rather have it the way it is than the way it was when I bought it.

I have a 325iT with BMW Performance intake and exhaust. That gives it a little more punch, probably at least 10 hp. Power pulleys are supposed to give it 10 more and I might get those. Mine has...

Consider yourself "in between BMWs" as I was for a few years. You will probably be back as nothing seems to drive as well, although the Miata is a good choice. I don't fit very well in them since I...

Also, you can set up searches on eBay and Autotrader to email you when something comes up. Those are very effective and convenient. I use them for a lot of things I am looking for.
