I got it!

Hi guys. Name's Gene, live in LA. Just bought my first bmw from an old Audiworld acquaintance of mine. Drove it down from Portland this weekend. I'm in love. It sounds so mean, so exotic. And I'm stoked to explore socal with the roof down :-D

Here's a couple of photos, but first a bonus question! Wheel locks? Thing has macht schnell 75mm studs and very beautiful HRE wheels that I really don't want to get stolen. Any recommendations?


Seller's beautiful pic (I had the front lip removed already because there's no way I'm not going to f it up :-D)

The lip looked fantastic, but I figured I'd rather get some cash for it now while it's unbroken than f it up in a month on LA's lovely roads and remove it anyway :-/

Thanks, yeah, I figure parking it on the streets here is asking to find it on cinderblocks one day.

PO kept the lip and knocked some bucks off for it. Considering my 1000 mile drive home, it was win-win.

The last time I went on a car enthusiast drive, an A4 ended up on its roof after trying to keep up with a bunch of modified S4s. This was 15+ years ago, so things may have changed. Do y'all still drive like idiots? :-P

The lip looks nice, but trust me they get scraped up in normal driving.

35-55 degrees and rainy most of the way this time of year. I actually had to keep a close eye on the weather so as to not end up on a snowy mountain pass on summer tires.

And it would take a week to do it along the coast. I-5 baby! :-/

But otherwise, it was a nice little roadtrip

Damn, was hoping you took it off in Cali. Sounds like it was a killer drive back though and no lip to stress over. I always back into spots BC I worried I will tear off my splitters...

And I drive my civic like an ass BC itís disposable, no way am I about to hurt my ///M! Lol Just some spirited driving, no racing, itís not the track.

Another happy M E9x guy onboard -Welcome OxGene! Car looks stunning. Assuming in LA you can keep that top down most of the year, not worrying about the snow that is currently aiming for my roof...😎

Congrats! Nice ride.

Can't see if you have it, but if you don't - I would recommend to get a wind deflector. I drive mine without top almost down to the freezing point and with that deflector and windows up it's still comfortable and warm inside.

Thanks for the invite. Maybe. I'm still learning the car and am hesitant to drive it even spiritedly before I understand it better. Lots of new stuff for me -- RWD and DSG are probably the biggies (had a 6sp heavily modified S4 avant before this)

As long as you have MDM on you would have to be going stupid fast to hurt yourself, the car is pretty good at keeping the wheels going the direction you point it. The e9X with DCT is a ton of fun in the twisties!! You never have to take your hands off the wheel and the response is so fast when you hit the paddles it makes you feel like youíre playing a video game!! I have only had my ///M for a few months and will not be pushing it.
