Before I'd fool around with a wheel size change or an overall diameter change, I'd replace the tires on the stock wheels with non-RFTs in the stock size. For a 335 sport, top end tires are easily...

Just looked. No M-sport package. They have the original sport package. They're not the same thing.

Is the fuel pump issue a artifact of the early builds, and has this been corrected down the line, or is it still happening with new build cars?

Reliability of earlly 335s (or current ones for that matter)

I wandered into a BMW dealer and saw a CPO '07 335i coupe. Since the 335 is BMWs first turbo engined car in a long time, I was bit skeptical on the reliability and durability front when these first...

Given the value of the car, I would consider the chances of them totaling it pretty low. As bad as it look, the damage (as far as can be determined from the pics) isn't that bad.

Are you all sure that this isn't just a non-problem? Yes, they run hot. Turbos do, but are they running out of spec. Does a difference between 240 and 280 mean anything to a car using good...

The E90/91/92/93 is about mid cycle. Were starting to see the mild facelift versions that always come out at this point in the model cycle. This means the next generation is in the middle of it's...

Skies,

I hate to say this, but there's no way of doing this deal without taking a prohibitively large bath, moneywise. Live with the Honda for a few years, then try and get rid of it.

The 3 is going to have to get much smaller/lighter before a 4 would be realistic (for US consumption). A 4 in a 1 would work.

Well, as far as the turbo hardware goes, the base 911 makes more HP without turbocharging, so it doesn't need that weight. BMW could try that trick. Also a turbo engine, vs a NA engine of the same...

Why so heavy (135i coupe vs 911)

Okay, lately I'm been casting a lascivious eye toward the new 911. In the process of doing so, I noticed something: It's really light. The basic 997 Carrara 2 comes in in the mid 3100 lb range. ...

The 3 sedan is definitely a staple. That's why the E9x platform grew.

The follow on question:

What would the 1-series buyers be buying if not the 1er?

My answer is the 3-coupe.

This is completely wrong. The 1er is desperately needed in the US. Okay, maybe that's just a tad hyperbolic. But it would be a real service to US car buyers.

Gary - Breyton Flame Sport on E92?

I've kind of fallen in love with the Breyton Flame Sport. However, I can't find any fitments. Do you stock this for the E92. Will you? If so, what sizes?

Thanks,

Mike
