Hello everyone from Dayton, OH
Greeting bimmerforums community.
I just bought my first BMW two weeks ago, a 2008 335xi. I've been taking advantage of wealth of knowledge that you guys have accumulated here since.

New Here to
I'm glad to be aboard. I also just picked up my 2008 335XI CPO from the Parkview Toronto dealership two weeks ago. Has it all aside from the sport package.
My first BMW and European, boy does it handle different than my Mazda.
To words - Love it!

Newbie here too...
Much to my surprise, I just bought my first BMW. A CPO 2011 328i convertible, that only had 11,000 miles on it. Almost like a brand-new car... and I'm already in love. I haven't gotten my husband to drive 'her' yet - he insists that he loves his TL and that's that...but this car is creeping into his heart, I'm not sure which of us have spent more time reading forum posts about it!
This weekend...with the top down...zooming down the freeway and the stereo blasting was pure heaven!!
I have a lot of reading and learning to do so I can keep it in top shape. I'm also interested in learning about 'coding' because it seems that some of the features I was hoping this car had...aren't 'activated" (like being able to open the windows with the remote, and the Satellite radio).
I'm so glad that this forum exists...happy to be here!

Hello my name is Marck and I am a BMWaholic.. just got my first after wanting one for so many years. 2007 BMW 328xi coupe, iDrive black on black.. Have some plans to swap out the yellowish lights to white and the LED options on the interior and brake lights. I have the nice lights just above the inside handles - have not been able to find anything on how to change them so if anyone could help..
I think you have some clouds on your hood

Hello everyone! Just bought a 2008 328xi Coupe this weekend! It's the first non-domestic vehicle I've ever owned, and I'm pretty impressed! I grew up near Detroit, so it's in my blood to buy American. But, after a terrible incident with my new 2012 Jeep Wrangler (it caught on fire the day I bought it), I've decided to go with a BMW.
I'll have to post a pic of the 328xi, but for now here's a description:
Black on Black w/ Aluminum trim
Cold Weather Package
6 speed manual
I'm planning on getting Sirius installed, and I'm still debating on if I should go the dealer route or just get a detachable receiver. I'm also planning on getting a ZHP knob as well as aluminum pedals in the near future.
Can't wait to read about the great things BMW owners do with their 3-series', and I hope to contribute at some point!

Greetings all, just announcing I am back in the Bimmer community after a 1 1/2 year drought! I am the proud owner of a 2007 328i 6spd.
Didn't get too good of a price on it, but one can only starve for so long. Gone are the days of the 03 & 95 525's and the 87 325 (that one hurt the most).
I'm back ! (but I probably shouldn't have cashed out a chunk of my IRA to do it!) I've got 99 problems, but my mid-life crisis ain't one!
ali pedals here I come!

Long time E36 owner just purchased a 2009 328i 6MT ZSP. 28k miles.
Pictures to come soon.
Purchased at a Carmax in Birmingham AL. Flew from Raleigh NC at 7am, bought the car and arrived back in Raleigh at 12:30AM the next day. That was a long day!
Wish it had aluminum trim instead of wood grain but will swap it out most likely.
Now I'm just waiting on insurance to settle with me so I can get my E36 back and strip it apart.

I finally took the plunge and got the car I've wanted.
2011 335i x-drive 6 speed, everything but nav. 29,000 miles.
Was going to get the coupe, but decided on the 4-door because everyone has the coupe nowadays and the sedan looked like a better flow of design.
This should be fun!
Feel free to PM me if you're from the area (CT)

Hi everyone! My name is Kevin. i own 2010 328i.

Hello all...on my 3rd bmw now. First one was an orient blue e46 sedan (2000 323i), second is my R1150R motorrad - love that thing...and now have a 2011 328i sedan in blk sapphire with saddle interior.
Since it's a 27mos. lease I will be refraining from extensive mods save for changing the wheels to matte black and some other little visual mods. I'm going to look for a blacked out kidney grille second hand before giving them $200!
Looking forward to having the ca$h for an M5 in a few years!!!

I currently bought a 2009 328i in the Southern California area, which is fully loaded. I went from a Mazda 3 to a bimmer and I'm loving the new whip. I got tired of the Mazda because it didn't have any of the features I wanted and I would of ended up paying thousands of dollars for upgrades which I already have on my 328i. I can feel the difference overall between my old car and my new one from the way it drives to just sitting in the car. Thanks everyone and hope to speak to all of you in the near future.

Newb here. I don't own a BMW, but I'm on the verge of purchasing one: 2012 335is 7spd.

Hi guys. I'm back in the fold. Last Bimmer was an E34 540i/6 back in the day. Just took delivery of a CPO '10 335d. This is one of those cars that just doesn't seem possible. Great performance/mileage, feels very light and nimble yet so solid and planted; I can't believe how it delivers on so many fronts with so little compromise. Thanks to all who contribute here. The forum made for an enhanced shopping experience.

Hi everyone. I have lurked without an account in the past, but decided to sign up so that I could ask some advice about what parts to buy to replace my old pads and rotors. Anything I should know before I request below?
