Everything looks good. This can be caused by too low of a tire pressure. Are you checking your tire pressure? Should be 32-36 psi cold. If your pressure on the left front was let's say 25 psi hot,...

Yes, sounds like you are at the stock settings, which is what would be best too. So the toe was in very good shape. BMWs, and most cars, come with a lot more toe than what is really needed. The cars...

When you say "both front tire wore to the cords very early" how many miles are we talking about? If anything, I would suspect you are very out of alignment. The stock neg camber would take a lot of...

I was a die hard manual person too, you should at least test drive a 335iS with DCT. I replied to your post in the E92 M3 forum as well. Either way, test drive and iS, if you do not plan on going to...

You should test drive a 335iS too! The biggest difference between the iS and i is 1) DCT w/7 speeds 2) 320/332 with over boost to 370 tq. 3) The exhaust sound is much better too. :) An E92 M3 can eat...

The significance here is the first 328 was produced in 1936. So, a 1937 would have the bugs sorted out. ;)

I cannot agree more, transforms the car! It's a tough call on what the next best mod would be, depends on how much you are willing to spend. I would have to say the LSD.

I would not go any wider on the stock wheels, just my opinion. I see you have 19" wheels too, I can at least tell you this. The max on the front of 335is is 255/35-18 (maybe 40) and 275/35-18 rear....
