Introducing my E90 330i

I finally picked it up today. It had arrived at Port Hueneme on May 30 aboard the Hyojin. It was a high priority car since it was pre-sold and it got to my dealer on June 2nd. It went out for tint that day, back to the dealer on Monday for installation of BMW's OEM Blackline rear lights, and on Tuesday the OEM rear spoiler went on. After a day to let the adhesive cure and a nice wash and wax, it was ready for pick up.

  • 2006 330i
  • Black Sapphire on Terra Dakota leather and Dark Burl Walnut wood trim
  • Steptronic
  • Premium Package
  • Sport Package
  • Navigation with iDrive
  • Comfort Access
  • PDC
  • Split rear fold down seats with ski bag
  • Sat radio prep

So far I am very, very impressed with the quality, performance, and features of this car. The BT phone is excellent as SuperGreg can tell you since I called him on it. There are so many cool features I can't get into them all, and the truth is, I don't know all about them yet. As an example, the rear PDC now has beeps and a virtual car displayed on the nav screen with a sort of radar behind it that shows exactly where and how big the obstruction is. Trick! Comfort Access is too cool. I don't ever have to put a key in or push a button. All I do is touch the door handle.

I'm getting used to iDrive. I'm not crazy about it but it does allow me to manipulate so many things that I would otherwise have to go to the dealer for. I think those with navless/iDriveless E90's can't do these things. For example, I can go into menus to activate or deactivate DRLs, drive-away door locks, and which doors unlock when the car is unlocked, amongst other features. This car is so advanced, even compared to the E53 which isn't exactly a slouch.

Here are some pictures I snapped today. The rear end is gorgeous with the Blacklines and spoiler. It really changed the way the rear looks. (See the before picture.) Check out the new whip.

Congrats! That is my favorite color combo! I love the interior bovine color and wood! To be honest, I'm not feeling those rear lights, but the car sure looks stunning. I'm sure it drives stunning, too!

Very nice! That spoiler looks great. I like the 2 tone interior too.
Wake up every day that would be a start.

Congratulations, Kevin! I'm jealous.
So I see you've started modding your car on day 1!!!
What else is on the useless mod agenda for your new steed?

Looks great Kevin - I love the colors too - exactly what I would have picked. I really like the rear spoiler too - makes it look different that most others on the road. So with comfort access, do you have to put the key in the ignition to start it? Congrats!!!

Beautiful! Congrats, Kevin!
