The 2007 328 automatic that we had was the most vague shifting automatic I have seen in a BMW. You can get used to it, and the 2006 probably has the same transmission. The newer models were better,...

FYI BMW does not make a V6. They make an inline 6. The turbo 4 was not available in the US with the 3 series until 2012. Since I have owned both an E46 330i and E90 328i, and the wife has the F30...

It's probably a fuel pump or a fuel filter or line leak if you smell gasoline and something that needs to be fixed ASAP. The fuel pump might make more noise when it is defective. I had a defective...

This is a guess on what models that transmission is used on. I think the same automatics are used on 325 and 330 models, so you are probably good for over what those engines have.

For the manual,...

I don't find BMWs to be more sensitive to other cars for alignment. We have a lot of pot holes here and I try to avoid them, but some are inevitable. Mine has not needed alignment in over 2 years....

The kidneys must be for your year of 335i. Most order gloss black or flat black if your car now has chrome trim kidneys.

Unless the main real seal leaks, I don't see any reason to mess with it. Leaky rear main seals are very common on older American cars, but I've never had a BMW that leaks.

Ask the guy on that website what he had to do. All I know is wheels that don't fit within original OEM specs can be a nightmare, not that they won't fit without rolling fenders and changing hubs, etc.

Style 95 is a 7 series wheel and will not fit an E90.

Take a look at this website. It has most of the OEM wheels and what fits each series.

If you want an engine most similar to the E46, get a 2006 330i, or the 07+ 328. I think they are a bit more reliable. The 335i uses the straight six, but it has the turbocharging, so another layer of...
