I have to admit I thought they were an improvement when they were new but they haven't aged very well. The M3 coupe still looks good.

Agreed - that said, if you wanted to run a G240 it wouldn't be hard, it'd just be a bit of research to nut out which clutch / pressure plate and throw out bearing to use. BMWs are like lego with...

Whether or not you're interested in the N54, the N52 is considered extremely reliable, so would be a pretty good option.

Any idea whether the EWS delete would also work for other N series engines...

The e30 had m stripes as an option back in the day, available for all models - they are sort of similar to what you have, but then stretch back along the side of the car with a thin tri-colour pin...

For sure - even the small diesels are similar to your F350, where right off idle they don't have the throttle response of petrol, but once wound up it's excellent.

Anyway, maybe my previous post...

Welcome! Great looking convertible.

The 320i's are very smooth cruisers - the 2.0L M20 is probably the smoothest of all of them. If you find you need some more grunt in the future, they make...

You won't regret the e92! I've been very happy with mine as a daily. Nice colour! You managed to avoid space grey :) (Mine's space grey like 80% of e92s out there!)
