New Car (Pics and Video Added)
 
6 Attachment(s)
After months of searching for just the right thing, i found a new car. I found a CPO 325xi ZSP with a stick. I had been flip-flopping between an E90 and an E83 for a while, but after three weeks of driving an SUV (and too many $75 fill ups) I decided the 28MPG was the way to go.

I pick it up wednesday, and will def. post pics.
:thumbup:

One quirk I've found: the car, despite not having comfort access works without the key. It only does if you take the key out then restart it, but I think its kind of cool. I was showing a friend, and said "if it had the option", pressed the button "it would start right now" and then started laughing :rofl:

Pics Below! :nanana:

I'm sure he was just casually driving along?

That sucks - what did he hit?

Congrats on your new ride!
Snow tars on that for the remaining 2 1/2+ months of
winter in Maine?

Not really, we're pretty much at the point where it all turns to rain. (2.5" of ice right now, brutal stuff) I've taken the stock Conti something or others into the last two nuisance (3-6) storms and the car has reminded me of my old Audi. If I end up in Denver, I'll get some dedicated snows, but otherwise I'm good with these.

Looks great! Congrats, and good job getting the right transmission. ;)

Thanks. They did a sh*tty job detailing it. I ordered some Z10 but I can't stand the current smell. It was clean before they got their hands on it!

Nice pick! The Terra leather, sport pack, and 6MT definately are all steps in the right direction. Cool ride you got there :thumbup:

The mod bug bit me for my parents' 325i. I suggest starting with rear fog lamps (buy a switch, that's all). I also installed the rear power outlets because I couldn't stand the notion of having something "blocked out" due to a plastic piece. If you have the dough, you can go with stuff like the split adjustable front armrest and/or the European wide-angle rearview mirrors.

Nice. I'm looking to get the stick taken out of my wheel tomorrow, but I am thinking M-Sport shifter, OEM alarm and the rear fog light in the immediate future. :thumbup: :thumbup:

75$ Fill ups, that's a dream come true, we're now paying up to $200 each tank full!!

Yep - when I fill up my truck it cost me an arm and a leg. Average of $75 but, the 330 ain't too bad about $40. Working 5 miles away from the office helps too.

IMO - the first thing that you need to replace is the orange out of your headlights. Then I agree with the M-shifter. By the way - nice ride.:thumbup:

I used to only do 8,000 a year, but I've done 700 miles in the 14 days I've owned it. ouch.
The only way i'll do euro headlights is if I take my car to Newark and let the insurance company buy them. I think $1300 is way to much to get rid of a little orange :rofl:
