Ditto. Live in Jersey and judging by the number of AWD cars on the road here, you would think we lived in Minnesota. The power of marketing combined with ignorance. Just imagine how much fuel would...

I see you live in NJ. Me too. My experience is that AWD is not necessary in our neck of the woods. RWD with winter tires will do just fine. I must be getting old. I remember when AWD was not an...

Thanks for the reply. After looking at the sway bar and strut options on realoem, that is the conclusion I came to as well. No, I don't have the sport package. I preferred the non sport seats and...

2006 Suspension??

I know that 2001 and later coupes came standard with the sport suspension. I have seen conflicting answers about the vert though. Does an 06 vert have the sport suspension springs, struts and sways...

Based on what you say above, it looks like you put 8K miles per year on your car. If you really like it and your only concern is the tranny, I would buy it. You can extend the warranty to 6 years,...

1. Get your wife a civic or camry.
2. Ride a bike to the train station
3. Get the car that you want for yourself with no compromises.

Yes they do. I have an 06 330 Vert bought thru European delivery. They come standard on the ED ones. PITA though, Won't stay shut. Am removing soon.

Don't have to. However, after you do an area (hood, trunk, side panel, etc.) it is no big deal to wash it down to remove any clay residue and then rinse it off. Whether you do this or not, you must...

Not much hope here. BMW sound systems aren't great. The head unit is fine and I would advise you to retain it. Keeps all your integrated functionality in place. You will need speakers and an amp...

Second this. The convenience of swapping mounted tires is really nice. As the original poster said, the monetary hit is tiny once you factor in the cost of mounting and balancing twice a year. Also,...

Nah. Should only cost me 15-20k. Remember, I will have a late model E46 vert to trade in on it in a couple of years after they get some of the bugs worked out of the car.

Buy one and have the dealer paint it. Price $85. Outrageous, but it is a perfect match. I know, because I just had this done.

Just curious, why do you need electrical hookups? Defroster maybe? Anything else?

If it is just the defroster, I assume that you could run without the hookups. True?

Another vote for Axis Deluxe Plus from Dave Zeckenhausen. Run them on both my 330s. Work great and they are clean. Get the stainlees steel brake lines while you are at it. Pedal feel is very tight.

Just curious. What did you find out that made you go for the 119s over the 137s?
The 119s were my second choice BTW (based on looks alone).
