I've just bought my second BMW ever..and im only 31..!!
The new car is a 06 plate 320D M Sport. Its a manual, in black, with cream leathers and wooden dash, and comes with parrot Bluetooth kit fitted. Its got 125k miles, but is only a 1 p/o car and comes with full comprehensive BMW dealer service history (Lincoln). Its last service was done at 117k.
My old BMW was a 1999 316i compact, which I had for 5 years and covered 100k miles in it.
I've jot got a few mods I want to do on the car, so any advise on the below would be great :-):
1 - I want to get the windows legally tinted...how much would this cost? I'm based near Derby. (I'm just thinking of doing the rear ones)
2 - I think the shark fin will look good on it - how much would this cost and is it easy to DIY. Is it simply a stick on or does it need to be connected up to any wires?
3 - I know the cars had a service at 117k miles, but I checked the oil of the car and it does look very black. Is this the right colour? Should I get the oil and oil filter changed now or wait until next service?
4 - I want to change the front chrome grills to black ones as they should look good on a black...? Again can I do this DIY? and which ones should I buy?
5 - I've seen on the forum someone who's changed the exhaust on a E90 to a 335 style with a single exhaust on each side? Can I get the parts myself individually or go to a specialist company? If so, which parts do I need or which company?
6 - Is it worth getting the car remapped? will this improve its fuel economy? as I will be doing 120 miles a day 5 days a week.
6 - ....and finally how can I tell if the tyres are run flats? Its got Bridgestone's on the back and Continental's on the front.
Sorry about the long winded questions. I will get pics of it up asap.
