  1. I have KW V2 and with the right settings they're great on the road. Just a little tricky on some driveways and parking buildings
  2. Ah looks like they're not doing it with most models now. Still with the 2 series though, the "M/// 240i".
  3. My 335i has 7 that I can think of. Although it's down to 3 as I'm not using the stock wheels...yes the wheels have little M badges on them, lol (style 225). The F series models get even worse. At least mine doesn't get a factor M badge on the boot, the new ones do if they're M-Sport.
  4. If you still have the stock wheels, you might be better off selling the Apex wheels separately. They only add value to the car if the buyer really likes them.
  5. Because people like their mods to be visible I guess. Same for after market suspension, brake kits ect. All bright and shiny colours, while the OEM stuff is usually just black.
  6. Nice. Kinda miss my E46, they do feel quite different to the E90s.
  7. That bloody Panmure roundabout, nearly been hit a few times trying to go straight from the middle lane. Now I just stick to the right lane as a precaution (going from Ellierslie-Panmure highway to Lagoon Drive)
  8. As long as you send it somewhere good for an inspection they shouldn't miss anything. BM Workshop, or since you're on the Shore Bellars are also excellent. Check the usual - see how it sounds and drives. Get maintenance history if possible. It has some good options there, comfort access, active steering, bluetooth - all great stuff to have. Highly recommend a mechanical warranty. Autosure have saved me thousands on mine. Oh and that's an E91. The E92 is the coupe
  9. LOL at the M badge on the engine.
  10. Mine came with KW V2 and it handles great, I've taken it on track once too and it was awesome. Was from that same dealer too. The guys that run that place love BMWs, they bring in heaps of well spec'ed 335is. I see that ad mentions "replacement value over $4,000" so it might be the V3s which are even better. V2s only have adjustable rebound, V3s allow compression adjustment too. Go take it for a test drive
  11. That tint looks real nice. I need tints, after I had to rip off my 11% tint that my car came with (from Japan) when it failed a WOF Would you recommend that kind of metallic tint? How is it with phone/GPS signals? I like the reflective look and I would like my (black with black interior) car not to be like an oven after being parked outside in summer And your M3 will have frameless windows on the front as well, does the tint still look ok on that at the edges? Not worried it'll peel off?
  12. I had it done by BM Workshop in Botany. Also about $1k. This includes new pan, filter and seals (they wouldn't normally do the seals as they're not reachable with the trans in the car). Looking at the invoice, it would be about half that if you only did the fluid. Bit considering what a DCT unit costs, I would rather do everything at once. Yes BMWs "lifetime fluid" policy does make it hard to judge when you should really service it. I've heard of some doing just fine up to 200k on the factory fluid. I think 100k is a good interval to go by if you want to be safe but I wouldn't be scared to leave it for longer.
  13. Recently at 150 000km yes. Trans was out of the car for a head gasket issue so I had all seals, pan and fluid replaced.
  14. I'm amazed you even had to drop the price The "buy now" price is a bargain IMO.
