Howdy, brand new E90 owner.

Hey there, I'm a new convert over from the E36 sub. I just bought a 2006 325xi 6 speed manual with 91k on it, electric red.

I figured I would drop in and say hello, and meet some of the people I'll inevitably be asking for help

My first impression thus far of the car are really nice compared to my old one, though the fuel mileage and power could be better.

As many have experienced my driver's door lock actuator is faulty and will only unlock the door, and i have a rather annoying squeaking noise coming from the front any time that i accelerate, I think it might be a CV joint or a guibo on the front prop shaft.

The xenon lights with the adaptive feature are pretty dang neat, it caught me by surprised when i noticed it driving home at night on a back road.

As far as maintenance, the car was maintained by BMW up until it was traded in around 89k miles, I think it might be due for coolant, oils and plugs?

overall it's a clean, and tight feeling car and I love it. If there's anything I should know or learn about it please let me know.

Thanks for having me.

Congratulations on your new car and welcome to the forum! I think this would be my dream car...red, black leather and a 6MT...but alas, I don't always get my way.

Good luck with your beauty!
