Venting the crankcase gases directly to the atmosphere would also solve the issue, and it is what was done before PCV valves were mandated in the 70's. I wonder how problematic the release of the...

They do look nice. I wonder if the off set is different for an E60 than for an E90? If it isn't too different it may still work.

I looked at every style at www.bmwstylewheels.com (that's 15 minutes I'll never get back) and it is closest to style 135 (as you noted) but not the same. Maybe it is an aftermarket wheel with a BMW...

306 rwhp is better than most of the "muscle cars" of the 60's and 70's. I'm sure it doesn't feel underpowered.

My 2006 325i is probably putting about half of that to the rear wheels and it is...

Well, after doing a bit or research I see that due to efficiency issues a turbocharged engine will loose power at altitude but much less so than a NA engine.

I'm not sure that it would be of the...

Turbocharged engines should not loose power due to altitude, like a naturally aspirated engine does. The pressure relief (sometimes called blow off) valve is activated by the internal pressure of the...

My 2006 325i has 82,000 miles and there is no way I'm replacing a $500 part pre-emptively.

110,000 km (68,000miles) is low miles for clutch life, but who knows how the previous owner drove it.

At least you were able to do the repair yourself. In my experience clutch replacement isn't a...

Black wheels, especially matte black, are hideous IMHO. It is a fad that I hope dies a quick and painful death.

Along with matte finish (sometimes called frozen) exterior paint.

A 2009 335i does not have a DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). Unless it was installed later which can be done but is expensive and difficult to do.

Hey ctuna,

$1760 sounds like a lot of dough for an intake manifold and a software flash.

As noted above the 3 stage manifold came on many models of BMW's equipped with the N52 engine. Seems...
