Mein Auto: 2006 325xi Arktis Met
New to BMW with an 06 E90 xi Arktis Metallic

I finally got my new car, was looking around for AWD options, and since my mom has an 06 A4, i decided not to go with Audi but to go with something else. Being that said, the car that convinced me the most was the E90 xi I live in Minnesota and the awd is very much appreciated. I personally am a Mitsubishi fan, have had from a saturn to a 87 Supra, to a 95 Talon tsi, to my current summer car 99 Spyder GS-T. Love my DSM and now i also love my E90. I am planning on keeping it mostly stock, with some modds. I have tinted the windows 35%, i would love the Blackline tails. Although for now i only got the pre-cut tint for them and GOING to try out the ambergone tints, have not heard the greatest things about them, but decided to try them out. If anything they will come right off. Trying to keep it clean. Also i might be picking up a set of 162 wheels for it tonight if the guy doesnt sell them before i get there. So far loving the car and looking fwd on learning more about it! Here they are!

Congrats and welcome. Looks like the car is in pretty good shape. So is it a 330 or 325 and what mileage did you get it at?

Also, what are your thoughts on the bimmer vs the mitsu (power and handling wise) ? Enjoy your ride!

It is a 325xi, and i got it at 119xxx for $10,500, financed. It is a great car, super smooth. Handles stiff i like it, although the shocks idk if they need to be replaced or if it usually the bumps feel the way they feel...u hear the clunk at the end on a bigger bump. I guess i love the ease to work on a mitsubishi vs on the bmw. BMW its all electronics vs not many electronics lol, i enjoy the power of my spyder, i enjoy the quick response on it and overall its a fun car. The BMW speaks for itself, class, soft ride, quiet, comfortable. I like both their own way, handling as of right now, the eclipse has it beaten, i have suspension work done to it, so its great at cornering.
