Default Mrs. Obioban's e91 328i









Picked this up this morning.

Rear wheel drive
NA
Manual
Hydraulic power steering
No DI
no iDrive

The last of the purchasable BMW's, imo, as all of the above were minimum requirements for me.

Currently it is a 328i, but soon it'll be a Supersprint header/evolve tune 330i, which will put it at (a reliable, NA) ~300 crank HP.

After this summer these wheels will become winter wheels, and we'll get something light/strong for the summer with real tires.

Needs M3/1M subframe bushing asap, and have to figure out what I'm going with suspension on it. Likely it'll be stock sport springs with Koni yellows or Bilsteins.

Roof rack will also be removed.

But, first order of business will be swapping all the fluids!

May dye the vinyl parts of the interior black for a two tone effect, undecided on that...

50,000 miles on the clock, currently. This should be a fun and reliable car for a long time, given how it's optioned.

I really love the non iDrive radio/sirius/bluetooth/ipod interface. Looks old school, but with new school functionality.
