The 06 325i is also down 15hp and 15ft/lb of torque compared to the 328i. Same everything, just detuned. Get a newer one. I went from an 06 to an 09, and the exterior changed a bit, but it's the...

My Dad has an '07 328xi with Conti ProContact, and I traded in an '06 325xi with Conti DWS (and it originally had Conti SportContact2), and bought a '09 328xi with the Pirelli Cinturatos. The...

Yup. I anti-seize the hub, but not the bolts. If swapping it at the end of winter, there won't be issues taking it off. Also, I don't use airtools, it's not really all that much work to do it by...

I was putting off swapping to snows on my 325xi because I know how to drive in snow (it had Conti DWS) and snows on dry pavement sucks. Then I sold it, and got a 328xi, which had low end max...

I replaced the battery in my 2006 325xi earlier this year. Fun. On Black Friday, there was a perfect upgrade at the dealer - a CPO 2009 328xi, with more options AND had sport and stick. So I bought...

A set of rims per set of tires is great. If you decide you put them on too early, a bit of time in the garage fixes it. :thumbup:

Just... secure the connection if you also have a tendency to remove the trunk liner (for carrying homebrew kegs).
