I have had the same debate in my mind with my delivered-in June '06 330i. I test drove an E92 335i and it is really impressive but not enough for me to take the financial hit to trade up to the...

Yes, "OEM" is actual BMW, as in "Original Equipment Manufacturer". You can buy OEM BMW wheels from various sources but typically from a BMW dealer like Crevier BMW. What size and style are totally up...

I feel your pain and perhaps more acutely. I took delivery of an E90 330i that past June. I love it and there is nothing wrong with it. It is still the same car that has been voted World Car of the...

The 3.0 is fine if one doesn't tow anything and if there is any sort of financial concern, whether the initial cost or fuel costs. As far as it being "slow", it obviously doesn't get up and go like...

So if there is not going to be a 323 and the 328 will replace the 325 then what will become of the 330? Will it be a 'tweener of 328 and 335 or will it be dropped altogether? I ask because I am...

Sounds good if I understand your deal. So you paid $500 + $400 MACO = $900? If so, I think you got a pretty smokin' deal. :thumbup:
