Wink New F30! Pics Inside

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello everyone!!

First time on this forum.

After looking at many cars for almost 6 months i traded my 2006 bmw 330xi and got a 328i xdrive. I ordered the BMS stage 1 already and H&R are on the way! Looking forward to learn and contribute to this forum.

I agree with the many differences that people have pointed out comparing the e90 series with f30 series. I like the fact that this car is a little more grown up, like me, I feel the 3 series and me are growing together

Beautiful car, congrats!
Word to the wise, I would wait on tuning the engine until the break-in period is over. Also, save your money on the H&R Springs (unless they're full coilovers) and return them. H&R Springs on stock shocks is not pretty.

I was able to get this car for 37k it has 8k miles, and 7 months old, so i think break in is already taken care of -

As far as the H&R i have read many people saying that the sport ones are good and said otherwise about the super sport.

Congrats on the car. You will be fine with springs it won't ride as well as Coilovers and you will go through shocks faster but as long as you understand that going in you will be fine.

Coming from a 330xi and used to the bumpier ride i think i will be ok, the gap right now is pretty noticeable and 1.5 inches will be ok.

I drive about 7500 miles/year so that too is something to consider for wear, which will be minimal.

I am truly happy to feel part of this community, forums are always a great way to get info and meet new people.

I will post pics of before and after and try to make a short video as well.

cheers
