Small world. I saw him too. On Westhiemer road by Bush Park around 7-7:30pm or something. Nice looking M. Two sightings in one night. This must be a new record.

HPFP( High Pressure Fuel Pump) a very common problem for N54 engines. The pump seems to stop working all of a sudden and leaves you stranded on the side of the road. There are lots of complains about it on e90post

hmm I think I'll keep my 325 for now then lol the only problem it has given me in 3 years is the power steering pump. It has 68k miles, so I guess I'll upgrade later. Maybe I will wait another year or two so I can get a newer LCI 335

saw an f10 535i on the road today for the first time...looks amazing in person. I thought they were ugly at first, but they just look so menacing in person. I can only imagine how sick one with m-tech bumpers will look like

My only complaint is the rear...kinda looked like a lexus from far away, but it definitely looks good up close

It's been a while since I visited these parts. Got some family in Houston and Port Arthur, but I don't get to come out and visit often.
