I'm pretty happy with the quote a sponsor gave me on my European Delivery M240i, but ED may make a difference. It was based on an amount over ED invoice, not an amount under ED MSRP.

In MA we have to have a front plate too. I did not want to drill the bumper on my 335d, so I found a mount that attaches to the bottom of the bumper. You do need to drill there, but it is not...

For Manual Transmission - 228 6th gear taller than M235?

I just read on the BMW website that the ratio for 6th gear on the 228 is 0.70 and it is 0.85 for the M235. Can anyone confirm this - that would make the M235 run a significantly faster RPM than the...

It is Mercon, but when I do mine I will probably use the ZF fluid - the truck shifts (especially downshifts) much rougher at 35K miles than my D at 95K.

The ZF fluid is way more expensive though.

I doubt you damaged the tires, but they will certainly wear more quickly at high speed and warmer temps.
