Change the headline to "I sold my Lexus for an E46 and now everybody is on Craigslist/FbookMarketplace looking at 'em" LOL. I did. I had a lowly 2002 325i and I LOVED IT!!! when it got wrecked, the missus hadda have another one, so we have an F30 with the N55 - a 2012 Sport line. holy bat balls this thing is fun, even with the zf 8 speed. Thanks for the write up, I remember doing all those thingfs to ours in the 6 years we had it too. easy work, lots of guides (Pelican or FCP Euro as you surely know) (I know, don't call me Shirley LOL) ...Beem on!!!!
