get a manual, but otherwise they are awesome cars. I do 3-stage tunes to make it into an E91 330i, it's like a 25-35hp bump depending on what one you get.

Very cool. I found a 6-speed e91. Really tough to find. Gonna a fly out to get it and never have done an out of state purchase. Excited though

I purchased a black grill fr ECS to avoid one that chips. A painted one will inevitably chip in my experience so this works for me. I will say the one from ECS is most certainly of a cheaper quality than the OEM one with screws holding on the molding and a weird plastic barrier at the top. It does look nice to have a chip free grill though.

I did the "buy a new car mod". It's a 2006 e91 manual. Only had 64k miles on it. I turned the clock over to 65k on the drive back from CA to UT (I flew out and drove back). Ordered a new ZHP 6-speed knob and did an oil change today. Its a very nice car.

I'll see what I can do. I originally painted it and used primer with adhesion promoter. It would be hard to remove the paint to any former glory. I'm not gonna let it go to waste though. I have some ideas.
