Hey all,

I have been reading stuff on here since I bought my BMW a month or two ago. I've learned a lot about detailing 'er and how to avoid some of the dealer's bs, as well as other things.

I bought a 2007 Montego Blue Metallic 328i coupe with the Saddle Braun leather interior. This car is GORGEOUS as is the color combination.

I got it with 60,000 miles and a five year extended warranty. All for just $16k. I think I got a good deal....

anyway, nice to see so many enthusiasts here. This 328i is literally the most amazing car I have ever owned!! I will never buy domestic again.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Welcome aboard. I had an "08 Montego blue coupe and it is what brought me back to the LeMans blue I drive now. I love the color and can't imagine owning anything different. By the way, where are the requisite pics?

Thanks everyone..... Montego and LeMans blue look very similar imo. That car is a gorgeous one too!! I just waxed it today with some Eagle One Wax and Dry spray, after washing with Zymol/. I will get some pics soon and post them!! I absolutely love this car! lol

The saddle braun leather in this car is what makes me melt. It's the most gorgeous color of leather I have ever seen in a vehicle! lol

All the best BMW's are Montego Blue!

Congrats on the car! I bought a Montego Blue 328i a couple months back. My wife loved the color and that made it easy to get. I love the color just because I've had nothing but dark red, grey or silver cars for the past 14 years and it was a great change of pace.

Get some pimp rims on yours so I can tell if I want to copy you!

The montego blue is just the BEST BMW color EVER. It looks very customized in that color. I don't like red, black, or silver. I only buy blue cars :-)

haha! I actually like my stock rims. They are the five spoke alloy ones.

I have not forgotten about my post! I have been busy with work all week. Today is the day I get the light bird poop and bug guts off of my car.

I will wash, wax and dry AND take some photos today to post. I will have to fig out how to post pics on there though. I bet it is easier if I do it via my phone!

I notice you use six colors, as does the current flag, but not the same colors, You, for instance, include Hot Pink, LBGT symbol for sex. Do you send a message?

Mine was an '08 with 49k, now at 100,100

What's your rim style? Those stockers are beautiful, but yes, there are so many choices!!!

I always get excited when I see my DREAM WHEELS But then I realize they are out my price range

There are lots of aspects of rims that should be taken into account when looking at "performance"

Cast vs. Forged
Weight
Size - 17 vs. 18 vs. 19

The wheelphiles can probably tell you more than I ever could. My wheels let me go fast, thats all I care about. make sure your tires are the proper speed rating though

Thanks, that pic was the day after I bought it, I put 20" Rennen rims, an aftermarket Spoiler on the back, black eyelids on the headlights, and I changed all the emblems to carbon fiber black & white
