Top Down Driving for the Northern Driver

Don't know how I missed this one, but here is an automotive video review from Motors TV that is shot in Spain last year in the winter time. I'm sure there will be plenty of snow shots of E93s to come as winter hits us very soon. For now, here's a sneak peak of how the convertible looks on a snow filled mountain. I wonder if they drove the car with the stock runflat tires?more.

Painted Kidney Grilles and Black Lower Mesh Install

Two weeks ago on a hot muggy Saturday morning I spent a couple hours removing my front bumper and installing lower black mesh, painted kidney grilles, and white GP Thunder fog lights. I had ordered the grilles and lower mesh pieces from Unique Euro Design. The color match on the painted kidney grilles is perfect and working with Unique Euro Design was great. I definitely recommend them.

To do this project you have only have to remove the whole bumper if you are going to replace the lower mesh. If you only want to replace the kidney grilles or the fog lights, you can do this without removing the bumper. Here are a couple Do It Yourself instructions I found useful for doing this project.

For the fog lights I went with GP Thunder bulbs purchased at http://www.hid-lights.com, their service I definitely recommend.

Is the 335i Too Good?

I know it's an article on a 335i sedan and some points may not be valid for the convertible model, but still look what an auto enthusiast has to say about the new 335i.

From Autospies.com: "About three weeks ago, we were given the 2007 BMW 335 sedan (Manual, sport, premium, premium sound)from BMW corporate, as a long term review car.

If you’re regular reader, you know I have been driving a couple Carrera S’s over the past two years, as my daily drivers."

"So there’s my case but also remember, this is not just BMW 335 vs. Porsche here…I would pick a 335 (Coupe if it was my $) over ANYTHING that’s on the market right now. Including cars like the 535, 550, M5, E550, GS450, Infiniti G&M, etc." more.

Brilliant BMW 3-Series TV Spot

You have to love it when an ad is created that appeals so well with its customers. Here is an ad from BMW that really resignates. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
