Hi everybody, I'm new in this forum although not new to Bmw. I'll try to keep it short.
Been living in the states for 7 years now, was always a Bmw fanatic. Got myself a brand new 335i coupe m sport 2010 back then, and total lost it after a drift going bad :/ nobody hurt luckily. Had my share of cars since then- from Lexus rx350, to an ISF , x3 35 when the baby came and eventually decided me and the wife needs separate cars. We traded the x3 in a big 7 seater Santa Fe, and it took me almost a year to find my car. Wanted a 2013 335i Xdrive ( I leave in WA state you kind of need those here ), wanted m sport, white exterior, black or red interior, Hartman kardon HU display and as much technology as possible of course. Finally found one on Utah sometime around October of last year, went there for business and it got sold a day before I had time to go test drive it.. My search continues and it's not until late January of this year that I found her, the perfect one. And with just enough miles left on the warranty to have piece of mind.
Had 2 cameras, some camera wiring ( my car has the front cameras as well ) break pads all around and front rotors and spark plugs all replaced under warranty due to issues. Now it's perfect and ready to go.
After some searching I heard about **********s in LA and decided I'm doing a road trip. I'm scheduled for Saturday, a week from today for a bunch of fun stuff ( cosmetic and preformance ), and pic with details will come in this thread. For now I decided to get my wheels online and tires at a local place that gives me tires for all our commercial vehicles.
Got black satin verde axis v99 20"x9 with continental dws06, 245/35/20 front and 275/30/20 back.. Finally no more loud harsh run flats... Only had like 40-50 miles since I did it but car feels amazing!!!! Much softer and not even close to the road noise level I had ( had pzero run flats ). I promise to get nice pics of what it will look like all done with decent light and all but for now I got those.. Enjoy.
