    New build! E90 M3

    Looking good, your first two mods are the same first two things I did to mine! Good taste! I didn’t even make it back from my 30 hour trip and I had to make a quick stop at work to throw my grilles in, in the middle of a snow storm 😬

    Nice work, looks good in there! Almost like these cars should’ve came with it....[emoji848]It was certainly pretty cool when they made the Alpina E65 with a SC, minus the fact that it was still on the E65 chassis. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So you’re the mysterious 335 buyer!? That’s awesome! So now this makes sense, that was me following you in the i3 the other day. I saw a silver e90 (with wheels that looked just like yours) and figured it was you in your 328, but then I saw it was a 335 and got all sorts of confused. *delayed light bulb turning on over here [emoji362] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    $700 for RB replacement!? That’s a steal! I did mine on my own but at that rate I’d almost consider paying someone, maybe.... Following to see how the SC turns out, would like to go that route someday, but that might be a ways away for me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    But if we all have BMW’s, haven’t we all made poor financial choices already? [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hah I suppose I don’t know enough about Bens car but since I’ve never seen it on the road, I should’ve been able to put that together 🤦‍♂️[emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    But the diesels you have don’t have nearly as much emissions stuff! I agree the engines themselves aren’t the issue, the core of those engines are actually great. But when EGR cooler springs break, NOx sensors fail, temp sensors fail, SCR cats fail, SCR tanks fail, and glow plug modules fail, they’re not cheap. But get rid of all that stuff and then they’re great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anything with a twin turbo V8 N63 and over 50k miles, E65/66 745’s and also M57 diesels (unless you remove all the emissions junk) All expensive to repair and generally have multiple issues Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was probably my wife, I would’ve done something obnoxious like try to race if I had seen you [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was an 87 325is primarily used for autoX and HPDE Unfortunately I sold it a few years ago, but it was built to spec e30 as far as engine, suspension, brakes, sway bars, etc. Only thing I didn’t have was the cage. I would’ve kept it but I sold it due to lack of room in the garage and it contributed to a down payment on a house.....adulting sucks sometimes lol

    We haven’t seen too many issues with these yet, but I’m not sure I’d like to own one out of warranty. Any of the parts related to the high voltage system or batteries are ridiculously expensive. I’m only doing a 2 year lease on mine but for $160 a month it’s probably the cheapest payment I’ll ever have for a car [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The i3 is actually pretty fun to drive, it’s surprisingly quick and the employee lease deal on it is dirt cheap! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
