It's little different. Mine was E65. I also have these runflats. As soon as they wear out I'll replace those with regular. I think non runflats give better ride. There is no storage compartments in the car. Cannot even put my sunglasses with case anywhere.

Beautiful car man, I'm sure you're still ecstatic about the purchase

And you know, you can now instantly add over 100hp with just a tune from Dinan whenever you want

100Hp gain with a Dinah tune? What does that actually require in terms of cash and mods? Really 100hp? I am dubious and curious!

Truth! My buddy in his 335i did the same. The power and ease of extracting more power from TT engines on display!

some BMW dealers are also Dinan dealers

and they can install the tune which is $3000, rip off for a tune

but they do honor the factory warranty with dinan stuff
