I'll probably end up buying another front loader along with locks and all that jazz, but I have all winter to amass all the gear.

First impressions are that this car is pretty cool. Sad about the no Xenons, and the check engine light, but I have a warranty to get the engine figured out. The HUD is really slick, I wasn't wowed by it during the test drive, but the minute to add navigation or media to the mix and that HUD shows it's value! Also, it's loaded with the birdseye backup camera setup, which is pretty slick as well. Hoping it has the BMW Connected options too, but I didn't have USB cable with me to test that connectivity out. The bluetooth works great, voice commands for phone or canceling nav worked well.

Figuring out iDrive is interesting. As you learn more features, it's pretty slick. Confusing at first, I had dual maps up there at one point...lol

The high beams are great even in Halogen... low beams seem a bit too low for me, can you manually adjust those at all?
Congrats! Good luck with the code...

Edit I see the photos in the earlier thread

I'm a F31 owner for about 5 weeks now. Love it! Even if it's dirty. This is mine on the 18" winters.

Thanks for the info. What tire size did you run on the 666M wheels? If you ran the factory M3 Comp set up, did you see/have and drivetrain issues being an AWD vehicle?

Got a quick wash in before the snow started to fly our way here in the midwest!



I ended up getting the bulbs linked below for the halogen upgrades... they are much better than what was in there, still not Xenon... but the low beams are usable now. High beams were fine actually.

Just curious - what quality problems have you noticed? I'm looking for a low mileage used one right now and would appreciate it. Thanks!

No problems. If you haven't experienced older BMWs you will think the f31 is amazing. It's not just BMW either. Literally all manufacturers quality is not like it used to be. BMW used to be the best, now they are just ok. or good.

Nice - what edition is your car? Did you do the mirror caps and grill? Exhaust looks great!

Thanks.

The alu caps are not OEM. I've bought them on aliexpress. Nice fitment and looks like real alu.

https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/2013-...808624818.html

The grill is a self painted alu look M sport grill.

So, now everything matches the alu roofrails and alu windowtrim.
