I had installed the ZHP knob in my old '06 e90 which I liked enough that a few months after trading into my current car I ended up ordering another ZHP knob to replace the stock M-sport version. The...

My experience has been with two e90s, but I did look at a number of e46 models before I got my original 2006 e90. I would think they'd both be nice daily drivers, though I'll confess I did find the...

Highly doubt those are genuine BMW 5-series wheels. In any case, 20's seem like a whole lot of likely functional downsides (ride quality, acceleration, etc.) and one visual downside (the wheels, at...

I like about 1200-1300 RPM to take off normally, and only rev higher if I'm trying to take off quickly.

As for the OP, his clutch may have died of natural causes at this point given this thread is...

You don't need to get a flat-bottomed wheel as you seem to be describing, but the M-Sport or M3 steering wheels do use a higher-grade leather that is smoother and also has some padding under the...

I'm in favor of the CDV removal/modification but, as usual, don't think it will do a thing to address the OP's complaint of the clutch pedal being too light. Every BMW I've driven with a stick (that...
