reviving thread after looking at Florida guys getting together
I am planning to change oil in Feb-Mar time frame. If anyone else is interested to join or do oil change you are welcome to join. I live in big apt complex with huge parking lot.. we can meet in my parking lot.. have some beers. I also have a good collection of cleaning equipment in case you are interested in detailing.
I have plans of doing some cosmetic mods next year: grills, wheels, clear coat etc. It would be nice to have like minded and work on your cars. I know its cold out there but we can plan for warmer days. Or we can just meet for coffee

Saw a black 335d non-sport at Papa Ginos in Foxboro on Route 140. I think you parked next to me but I didn't notice until you were leaving?

It was nice to meet Bimmerdiesel and his 335d at the Bavarian Autosport Show in Portsmouth. NH last Sunday. His car was parked right next to my M3 and it was the only diesel on the lot. In 2010 and 2011, I had the X5D at the show
I forgot to make pictures but if he got any I hope he will share

There was a guy with 2012 328i 4 banger turbo. The engine's idle was so rough, it sounded like an old knocking diesel. Comparing both engines, the 335d was way way quieter

We have to be more serious and setup a BMW diesel owners meet after the winter

Yeah I brought my diesel in for service and got a 2012 328i as a loaner, and it was louder than my diesel! Even the loaner rep said something about how people ask if it is a diesel engine it is so loud. Very strange...

Not just loud but also the engine is shaking so bad at idle
I read it's a great engine and won few awards but I don't know why is that
I had 2012 X3 xdrive28i with the same engine and I got the same experience. Also I hate the new electronic steering, it's not BMW anymore feels more like RAV4
