Using an iPOD in the 335i...

I don't see a place to put a cable adapter in the car so as to use an iPOD or iTouch in the car. (2008 335i --- automatic is the only option in the car).

Is there a place to put the cable...

Tx, this really sucks...

probably no quick loaner and the fan belt broke in the summer (couldn't turn with no power steering, no a/c and so on). I may go Japanese next time; the car has 16,000 miles. Over-engineered ---...

Was only a mile from home so drove the car home. 335i 4 door 2008. Restarted car and warning light did not reappear and car did not shake (or shook much less). Could this be bad gas or ??? ...

Cost of NEW KEY!

i need the new key for my 335i --- the keys/readers are lost/stolen. they want 220 dollars for one "key!" seems ridiculous. and it takes several business days even after they see my license and...

Low tire warning light refuses to go out...BMW service non-existant

I changed the tires to get rid of it (and to put on better tires). (I put on non-runflats.) I don't have iDrive. The pressure is not low.

It resets for a few minutes or until I start the car...

Tire pressure/flat light refuses to go out...

My tire pressure light was on earlier this week when I started the car for the day. I brought the car to Ivan's shop (a TireRack recommended place) and they checked the pressures. All fine. There...

Well, the only thing I know is that the sound system in the 128i is better than that in the 328i or Logic 7. I've heard both. (Better speaker placement?) Additonally, BMW has evidently made some...

Friend traded in 328i for 128i... and prefers it...

The 328i wouldn't start 5x and was, therefore, replaced by BMW due to state lemon laws.

Anyway, the 128i seems to be a very nice vehicle. The interior seemed a bit nicer (for sure, it has a...

Techs say to use each at least once per year to keep the internal battery charged.

Good one. She's younger than me and has some Lolita in her. Indeed, religious, but she can put up a fight for only so long. From up close experience, I can assure you that she is 110% female. ...

Dumb quesation of the week... traction control and 335i...

It rained the other day and, for the first time, the DSC become intrusive. I mean I gassed it from a stop and it just didn't move for maybe a second.

Is this the fault of DSC or the sucky M&S...

Don't even ask about MPG on my 335i!

If my girlfriend drives it she does pretty well. If I drive it, the tank empties at an alarming rate (guessing, I probably get 15mpg). Still, it's worth it to me :thumbup:.

Well, pretty much anyway --- I have the 335i and had the 330i. Yes, the 328i is somewhat better balanced. But the 335i handles well and the power is intoxicating. When on the highway the extra...

Good points but I find D to be much less aggressive than

DS. Punching it when in DS pushes me back in the seat whereas D can seem a bit too laid back. Also, I'm not sure but doesn't D start in 2nd gear rather than 1st.

Oh, well, I guess DS and...

No tune, just a heavy foot...

the sound isn't great and I don't want to keep the engine at 5,000 revs, especially with max torque available down at 1,400 revs. If I floor it I'll hit the car in front or be going too fast.

Does the 335i step sometimes hold gears for "too long?"

Unfortunately my knee no longer allows me to drive a manual. But the BMW step is pretty good. In DS when I give it a lot of throttle and then hold speed the engine sometimes stays at 5,000 revs or...

I do think it's a scare tactic but the odds of the money factor coming down in May are modest due to strong Euro. If BMW uses low residuals they will shoot themselves in the foot. With a weak...
