    Daily Driver opinions

    I don’t find the 335i that much of a guzzler, but then it’s all relative. I use it daily and it’s so much nicer than a little shoe box. The trick is to think of the 335i as a frugal daily compared to daily driving the M5 😜... at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

    Clean your wheels 😂

    Un-Tuning a 335ci

    I purposely bought my coupe without idrive. Much cleaner looking and the older idrive feels so dated.

    E60 M5 6pd manual. i want one !!!

    The e39 M5 is a lot of fun with a manual and complements the engine well, but the modern autos and DCT gearboxes do a great job. I personally find driving a manual tedious now.
  6. Have you tried FCP Euro?

    The only upgrade that made sense

    Are these common faults?

    Potential 1989 B11 Alpina

    This article might help you determine if it’s authentic or not. https://germancarsforsaleblog.com/tuner-tuesday-1990-alpina-b11-3-5-2/ regardless, e32 is always a favorite. Shame the Alpina wheels are missing.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    Or double it if they’ve just given it a wash for the first time since owning and it’s “in mint condition”

    The SchnellWagon - E91 335i

    Great looking wagon. I am very smitten with my e92 n54 and it’s completely stock. Yours must be a blast!

    Cheers Cory. I thought that was your 330i but wasn’t sure.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    I agree. I sold my last one with some reluctance but was keen to move into something a little more modern. I tried an e92 M3, e60 M5, even branched out and looked at a 996 911. Kind of considered a F10 M5 but they’re so much bigger. I kept coming back to the e39. The V8 is just so nice day to day. They just got everything so right (imho) and you’re right, they are stunning to look at.

    I don’t think I’ll daily it. More of a weekend toy.

    Cheers! I used to have a 1999 Avus Blue. Was one of the first in the country. I don’t think it went to a community member.

    Maybe 😈 Picked it up yesterday. Drives very well. Previous owner attended to mechanical issues and maintenance well. There are lots and lots of receipts in the glove box and in the boot... including a few 5 liter bottles of TWS oil which is handy. Interior is pretty damn immaculate for a car with 200k. I don’t think the rear seats have been used. Exterior needs a few door dents pushed and wheels refurbished. Motor feels strong, gearbox much nicer than my previous M5. I need a bigger garage!
