Buy it! I bought a 2009 335d back in April (traded my 2002 540iA m-sport). Mine had under 13k miles and was a German car brought to the US. It is a very sweet ride. The engine is awesome. If it...

Adios E39

Back in April, traded in my 2003 540iA for a 2009 E90 335d. Before the E39, I had a 2005 Jetta TDI. So when I found a German import 335d with 13k miles, I had to check it out.

I thought I'd be...

Is there a fix for the disappearing pixels. A couple are out on my radio. Is it just a board, or do you have to pitch the unit?

I though I did well finding my 03 540 in Jan w/only 18k on it. Over 33k now. Yes I drive a lot. But 22k on a 97, that's crazy. Better not be any nicks, dings, or rust on it. Hey, any dry rot on...

There's a whole thread here on how to do that. I bought the unit in May. Still in the box. Every weekend has had something going on. Gotta get that thing in before it snows.

Agreed. I driven both and the 530 is nimbler. But I bought the 540 and it's a hoot when you stomp on it. Not sure the 540 is really lower, but it looks like it is. Might just be the staggered rims....

Not a fan of the 19" rims. Too much space between the rubber and the wheel well. And to echo other posts, ride will suck and so will handling. Hit a pothole, dented rim. Lower the ride and put...

I'm not familiar with this conversion. I've warmed up to the e60 a bit, but I think I'd skip the 04 year and look at 06 or later.

Over 100k, floormats were probably well worn and discarded. $100 should get a new set. $250 if you want to splurge on wool.

Just my opinion. Doesn't mean anyone has to agree with it. It's all subjective. It's all good.

Sport models sit lower. The wheels on the 525 sport are IMO the best looking. I have a 2003 540 sport and it sits even lower the the other sports, has bigger wheels, bigger breaks, etc. But that...

335d or Corvette?

You must be itching for a new car. But I'd look for a low mileage e39 first. I picked up a 2003 540 back in Jan w/18k miles on it. 6 years from now, anything below 60k would be low miles.

I like...

I have a Jetta TDI and really dig diesels. If this was a later year, and the steering wheel was on the left, I'd be all over it.
