I love the inline 6 and would only get the 35i. I do not like the 4 cylinder feel of a 28i. That said, the 28i is much quieter (the 35i has excessive exhaust noise) and the 28i has sufficient...

So I was told never to patch a run flat, and a shop refused to patch it. I got a nail in my tire with 10,000 miles. I pulled it out and shoved in an old fashioned friction plug in my garage (I had...

Sorry I should be more specific. I have a wind whistle in my driver's side door on the highway. None on the passenger side so I know it's not normal. The funny part is everything looks tight.

I have the same noise. It's definitely wastegate rattle.

I'm anxious to see if the SIB fixes the throttle tip-in issue. I can (begrudgingly) live with the wastegate noise at cold start.

I definately have 17" M3 knockoffs as winter wheels for my X3 35i M-Sport.
