Talking 100,000 mile 335i

Been awhile since I posted here, wanted to give all my fellow Bimmerphiles an update.

The ride (Io) and I hit 100,000 miles today. Still going strong, but lots of preventative maintenance planned for the near future.

When I hit 100K I did the walnut blast, shocks and struts, new tires, an 4 wheel alignment, and a new water pump and thermostat and BMW professional radio LCD display. Like yours, my my car is still running great. It was all DIY except for the alignment. It was about $2,200 in parts but totally worth it. I love the car.

About to get a new set of front tires as my rears were just recently replaced. Water pump and Thermostat were done about 25k ago.

Not sure whether or not my struts/shocks need to be replaced yet as they don't show any of the symptoms of being blown. Plus, I'm still not sure in what direction to go if I do replace them.

Congrats on hitting the century mark. I see four holes where your license plate used to be. Did you put more holes in the bumper to move it to the passenger side?

Congratulations, 3TT!


Your ride is now broken in, mature, and you may be considering mods. All well and good, but you'll want to pay special attention to your ride from here on out....

There is just one word to keep in mind....to hold close: LUBRICATION

Yes. Lubrication is much recommended - the slipperier the better - you need copious lube to quickly move a piston in 'n' out!

Only with flowing lube can a tight fit be enjoyable - and isn't Joy part of BMW's advertising? Indeed it is, and most BMW pilots greatly appreciate a spirited romp!

So let's get going 3TT - and remember, only with good lube will you experience the Ultimate Driving Machine!

The 4 holes used to be 3 holes from whoever tried to mount the OG center plate bracket to the bumper. I added a 4th because the thought of the asymmetry right in the center bothered/ me off. I just had the bumper repainted and the holes filled so she's all smooth now.

What do you suggest CWB?

Obviously suspension
drivetrain
transmission
5-7k mile oil changes
brake flush
coolant flush

Another question, this is my first car to over 100k miles. Do I need to change to a different weight oil? 0W40 vs. 5W30?
