The solution is simply to use a cup holder. All pricing and details are believed to be accurate, but we do not warrant or guarantee such accuracy. The dealer replaced the bearing and the control panel under warranty. We also carry the unit if you like. Interestingly, our long-term —the previous-generation E46—also delivered 25 mpg, but compared with this current E90, it was shy 62 horsepower and almost a full second to 60 mph.
Thanks to the higher-performance tires in the Sport package, the 330i's speed governor was raised from 130 to 148 mph, which our example easily achieved. The car was a disgrace! The driver doesn't have to touch the shifter in traffic. Driving dynamic is very good. Online owners' forums steered us to Rogue Engineering , whose short-shift kits are set apart by the addition of a heavier by about a pound selector rod—which connects the shifter to the transmission—that the company says is used to offset some of the increased effort that inevitably results from a shorter shift lever. One thing we never carped about was the 325-hp, 4. Finally, the dynamic cruise control unlike adaptive systems doesn't try to maintain a radar-measured space behind the vehicle in front of the 330i, but it still irritated us by applying the brakes when we'd get more than a couple mph above the set speed, such as down a steep hill. A small-size coffee cup will hold a cell phone nicely in a pop-out dash holder such as the one in the 330i.
If your 330i is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change. That's real performance progress, as those figures are quicker even than an E36 M3's. The recall began Aug 2016. But we all do it to extract some productivity from long highway slogs. An interim notice was mailed to owners in September 2014.
We also replaced a right-rear Dunlop Winter Sport M3 tire that started leaking air and was missing a big chunk. Our first oil change wasn't required until 19,098 miles, and the second came at 34,740 miles. Pump failed at 47,000 miles. Aside from some minor intake modifications, this is the same engine introduced in the '04 X5 4. That's amazing, even allowing for the 330i's optimistic speedometer, which reads 4 mph high at 80 mph. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question. And the chassis was always eager to be leaned on, delivering its tenacious grip with steady balance and great stability.
A new video shows a compilation of vehicles drifting through the rain-soaked corners of The Green Hell. It was a complete waste of time. I checked the listing a few days later and saw the truck was sold. After putting a quick 2135 miles on the 330, we took it to the test track where we measured a 0-to-60 time of 5. See a big mess of wires.
Does Lindsay Lohan know how to mug for the camera? A second notice was mailed when an adequate supply of parts became available, on December 1, 2014. I know the post is for an E90 but I just did this job as a dyi on a 2011 F10 535I xdrive M-Sport with the adjustable sway bars. Many staffers thought it felt similar to the shifter on the 2003-05 330i with Performance package—that's a good thing. Unfortunately, both of these pumps only last around 50-80k miles from the factory, and since they are a little tricky to replace, can cost a huge amount of money to do preemptively at the dealer. Drive like on a rail, but at the same time it is comfortable. Oddly enough, the system called for an additional service and inspection at 30,000 miles, although no oil change was required or performed.
Our impressions from the driver's seat were even more positive. Vehicle information is based off standard equipment and may vary from vehicle to vehicle. It took about an hour, using a hydraulic lift. Effort is increased slightly, and the shifter clicks more positively into gear, at the expense of some of the stock shifter's smoothness. At the freeway entrance, a line of vehicles ahead of me slammed on their brakes.
If you need to replace a blown fuse in your 330i, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. There does not seem to be any info relating to this car and the job. Our 330i's chassis was equally impressive, not giving up in corners until 0. A few trim pieces are now lighter in color, and the iDrive knob is a little less antiseptic with its new leather cap. Reusing the water pump bolts is a risky situation, especially since the location is tricky to get to if you snap one of them off.
