EBII 328I from Hawaii

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So after the long 3 month wait, I finally took delivery of my 2013 BMW 328I in Estoril Blue II this past Tuesday (8/13/2013). Because of the long trip from Germany to the VDC in California, I had a lot of time to think about add-ons and decided to get Majority of the M-Performance Parts.

Being that is the first car I actually own (leased a A4 and IS250 prior, and Owned a 240sx with full bolt ons) I plan on making some minor modifications. The outside is pretty much exactly how I want it, but who knows where this road will take me.

I must say I love this car. Coming from the IS250, I am extremely happy to be in a German car again. The A4 was good, the IS was comfortable, but the 328 is hands down the best car i've owned so far. I love driving it and it actually reminds me of how much i loved to drive my old 240sx. I've read a lot of complains about body roll and softness, however compared to my previous cars, this chassis so is stiff and the car is well planted I really have no complaints. The 4-cyl turbo has more power than any of my 3 previous cars and I love the sweet exhaust note from the M-Performance Exhaust.


Here is a breakdown of my build:

M-Performance Exhaust


Mods (photos to come)

Thanks Guys. I just ordered my tires and TPMS last night for my BC forged wheels. Gotta love amazon with free shipping of tires to Hawaii!!

Can't wait to get them on the car. I'm already scraping a lot of places with stock height but I do want to close up the wheel gap just a little. Decisions, decisions!
