consider some alternatives

folks,
the offsets of an E46 or E36 will work on an E90. Consider stopping a fellow 3er on the road and offer to buy their spare when an emergency occurs (also borrow their jack and lug wrench as...

If it's of any interrest, my folks did a ED in 1969, but for a VW Bus. I came along but I was just a few months old. Back then, you had to arrange your own shipping at Bremenhaven, and pick it up...

Security with ZCW

I finally saw an E90 with the folding rear seats and ski bag package. I either missed something, like a not fully implemented feature, or am quite amazed at the lack of design logic with it. The...

a wad of cash

No, not one set alone. It costs about a grand to mount a set of tires for the 325 SP; for the 330 base, it's a bit less. But the SP tires wear out twice as often, so to cover the same 75-85 Kmi,...

325 w/SP vs 330 base

I'm trying to compare a base 330i with a 325i w/SP. The only option that comes std on the 330 that I'd add to the 325 are the Xenons, so the price difference for me would amount to ~$3K more for the...
