    I'm affraid I already know the answer, but I still want to know other's oppinon. I'm considering if it is a good idea to buy a bmw with 330d (either M57TUD30 or M57TU2D30) as a daily commuter to work. The distance in one direction is around 9km (5,5mi.) or 20 minutes. Especialy in winter. Will...

    Hey everyone, So I currently run two sets of tires on my 05 M3. Great set of P4S in the summer..but what I'm currently using for my winter tires is not great. It's good all seasons in the back and older summer tires in the front. My intuition is that this is probably not the best idea, but...

    Hey everyone, I've had my 05 M3 for just over half a year now, and so it's already been through a bit of snow and winter conditions. I was wondering if there's anything to protect the vulnerable parts of the car against rust and salt corrosion, in preparation for this next winter...

    Right now I have performance tires and about 1.75 inches of ground clearance. With winter approaching, I am wondering about what to do in harsh, snowy weather. Normally I would be driving the old jeep, but it is on its last leg. It started out as a joke, but I am actually considering lifting...

    I only have one set of rims for my 05 325i (17 in style 137) and with winter coming in the next few months (I live in Canada) I will definitely need to invest in winter tires and wheels. I'm thinking of just going with steel wheels, because the salt and dirt here in the winter really gives...

    Recently it was brought to my attention my battery is getting low. I've noticed a few issues starting (nothing major). Starter clicks and sort of fizzles out. After a couple times she turns over no problem however I don't want to put any unnecessary strain on the starter or alternator. It was...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2003 325i and I found out my car needs the CVC valve replaced. Now I want to do it myself because I will save a ton of money. My car currently does not turn on because of my cracked valve. I have two options. Tow it to a mechanic and get it repaired and this will cost me...

    I live out in the country in Iowa and all we have now are 4x4s. I am looking to get a 330xi because of the awd. The reason I have to have 4wd/awd is I live on a steep lane that sometimes goes unplowed. I know once it is plowed, I can make it in anything. I just want to know if it will make it...

    I purchased these a few months ago from another forum member. The wheels are in Excellent condition and the tires only have about 200miles on them. I put them on my M3 when we had the snow/ice in January. They turned the car into a German Snowmobile!!! I had no issues getting around and they...

    Hello, I have a 330Ci and I have 1 choice for 16" wheels for a snow kit. I was wondering if the Sport Edition A7 wheel center cap can be replaced with the BMW roundel center cap. http://www.tirerack.com/upgrade_garage/BigPic.jsp?wheelMake=Sport+Edition&wheelModel=A7&wheelFinish=Silver+Painted...

    I had done a lot of searching for specifics and found good and bad info on the forums. So I just ended up buying a set of 17x7.5 et 40 rims that were previously mounted on a 330. The tires are Hakka 2's size 225/45/17 all the way around. They fit well and have plenty of clearance for my non-comp...

(FYI i have a 2001 330ci and the winter setup is unidirectional) so my...
