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.

I decided with the Garagistic sale a while ago, it was time to change my rear diff bushing to a proper offset bushing. I ended up having to do it twice because as I was testing to see if I would need a fluid transfer pump or if I could simply use the bottle it came in, I dropped the black plastic cap into the sealed diff. Took the whole thing apart, did it again... Ugh that was annoying.

I also received a front plastic bumper. I installed it partially yesterday night. Looks good, fits right, needs paint and needs trim. The trim it came with cracked either during delivery or before purchase. I don't know and it's neither here nor there. I'm excited to have a complete plastic bumper setup though!

On the e90 wagon, I got a new shifter knob as well. ZHP shifter is so nice. Looks like it's supposed to be there too.

Nice wagon. I'm jealous it's a manual. You have excellent taste in vehicles.

I appreciate that man. Especially considering the amazing state of your E30. I know you have great taste. The manual was difficult to come by, but I waited for about a year and swoop in.

Great buy on that wagon- it's the right color and it's manual. That's a hard to find combo. I've always said, that's the only vehicle I'd ditch my Fozz for.

most certainly! It's been so nice driving it. Hopefully I can get it tinted soon. Can't handle clean windows.
