My Ride: '09 335i
LOve this thread...

'05 Alpine White ZHP Coupe with 6-speed manual transmission and navigation...bone stock. Just the way I like it.

She has 26K miles on her.

I am going to keep her until the new car warranty runs out...50K or until April 2009. After that, I hope BMW turns out another performance edition of the 335i. If not, I may keep her longer.

'05 Sparkling Graphite vert with 10,500 on the clock. Everything but the
back-up beeper. Just love the sound and the glued to the road feel in the
twisties. My 92 E36 had 200,000 when I donated it to my daughter, it's
still going strong. Hope this youngster does as well.

My Ride: '05 330Ci ZHP 6sp
2005 Coupe Silver/Grey Metallic
Alcantara Steering Wheel & Cloth Seats
Navi w/ perspective mode and Sunroof
36,000 miles w/ no mods except for Dinan pedals.

Just recently had extensive work done on the heads because I money shifted from 5th to 2nd coming out of a tight corner. That was my fault since I did not slow down enough to down shift before entering corner. Word of advice....never downshift this car while taking a corner as it will increase the likelihood of overreving your car. Damage was limited to the valves. There was some slight scoring to the cylinder heads but nothing that caused a concern. All 12 valves and valve seals had to be replaced. Total price $4800. I also had a fuel injector replaced under warranty because it was defective. Now the car runs stronger and revs more freely. I'm pissed that I had to spend $4800 to fix but I'm happy that she's back and running better than ever.

I have a 2004 330i ZHP siver gray.

Performance upgrade include:
Dinan Stage 3 software
Dinan Transmission Software
Dinan High Flow Throttle Body
Dinan High Flow Intake.

I am undecided to upgrade the supension. I was thinking about the new designed Bilstien PSS10 and UUC Sway Bars? What are your thoughts on this set up?

Word from BMWNA is there will not be another Performance package available in North America. They don't want to undervalue the ///M name.

With a proper M3 sedan this time around, there really is no need for one.

Sad, but I can see this since they are bringing the ///M3 sedan back.

On the bright side , it makes our fine cars that much more fine!!!
