You can't replace the headunit easily, as it's integrated into too many things on the Canbus. That limits your choices. ASD is running through the general sound system, so it's just about...

Well, he posted about getting the nail over 6 years ago. Luck has little to do with it at this point.

Highly unlikely.

You can go aftermarket. I changed out the amp in my system with one from BimmerTech. That adds an equalizer setup via a PC and a USB connection.

Installation is under two...

On all of them? I know there isn't on an an N54. I thought there was on an N55.

Ah. Quite possibly true. The gas mileage during the warmup bites, so getting into normal running mode is important. The N55 is certainly configured to prevent coolant from going to the heater core...

Heard from the guy who bought my 2009 335xi last year

He blew a tire on a pothole and wanted to know if he really needed to replace all 4. I aimed him at TireRack.com and their tire shaving service.

While I had him on the phone, I asked how things...

The money decisions are yours, and as I bought mine instead of financing or leasing, I can't kick on on that.

Always clean up BEFORE starting your engine after an oil change.

Because that's when you can discover that, while you replaced the two gaskets on the filter casing before you reinstalled it, you stupidly forgot to put the new filter in. :rolleyes:

2007 335 models had some teething issues with the then-new N54 turbocharged engine. The 2007 328 models have been pretty good in the longevity department.

Keep the M235i.

If you get rid of it now, you'll take a bath on depreciation, figure 20% of initial price. Then, you'll pay list or more for an M2. So, figure it's going to cost you $15,000...
