Cracked the inside lip of an OEM wheel on something in the road (didn't find that out until 2 weeks and 3 trips to Firestone for a leak) that also punctured the tire. After trying for an hour to...

It's 'fun' to do once or twice - after that you'll find that a $75 hotel room really isn't that expensive! I've done 1,000+ in a day more than a few times, and you've got to know if you're one of...

I got 24,500 miles out of the OEM Bridgestone RFTs, when the right rear blew. All were near the end of tread life, so I replaced all of them with non-RFTs for the cost of 1.5 runflats, and will...

'09 328 - the stick vibrates back-n-forth at idle and you can feel it in the seat. But my friend's '07 328 is glass smooth - you could balance a nickel on its edge on the stick shift - so I took...

That's EXACTLY the kind of wheel I'm looking for. I'll have to replace the stock tires in maybe another 10,000 miles anyway and will go the non-RFT route. Silver with the space gray, I think. ...

Probably. I was also bugged by the delay off idle with the turbos - not turbo lag really, and it was predictable, but I kept surging forward 'cause I'd go a bit deeper into the pedal at the wrong...

It's all a game - speeding (even 7 mph over) is against the law, so the challenge is to be sneaky fast. Smooth, always use the signal, keep right whenever possible, etc, etc. If you get caught, you...

Just got some touch up paint at the dealership - $33, which is ridiculous - and the parts guy said I was lucky it wasn't an M color or it'd be $59. It's PAINT for cryin' out loud!

I agree that getting as fast as a 335i is out of reach, but that's not the goal. My slower 328i is more fun to drive in all arenas, except for higher speed sweepers - the 335 just pulls and pulls. ...

Can a 328 lose 200 lbs?!

I've got a 335i loaner - for the weekend now - and can tell it's definitely heavier than my car. My guess is at least 200 lbs heavier. (335i sedan w/AT versus 328i coupe w/6MT - both with sport and...
