Absolutely breathtaking picture. Makes me miss my ride so much. 30 days to go before I get to meet her up again. One of friend is going to book his 320d in white colour too this week. And the pictures of your ride helped a lot in his decision making process.

Well I am currently in Vadodara, Gujarat for another 1 and half years. Car is in Delhi. Have the Altis with me here. So can only drive the 3 when I am at home. Imagine driving Altis diesel after experiencing the sports mode on the 320d!

What a visual treat. Thanks for the pics. We are planning some similar club in Delhi also.
The other F30 is mineral grey right? Or is that Havana? I somehow feel the F30 looks best in dark colours.

Hey dean,

Hall 1 ? That means you were in the machines section. Our stall was in Hall 5.

But not fair man, you should've said a Hi at least if you had identified me, any way so should possibly see you at Plastindia now

Thanks Mohit,
The other F30 is mineral grey, dark F30s are a rare breed & hence they look quite stunning when spotted, similarly i have seen only 1-2 black which look HOT, but equally difficult to maintain

The other F30 which you say is a 320d seems to have identical rims as your 328i. How did that happen?

Hey Sandeep,

Yes it is a 320d. The rims have been upgraded to 18"ers (Style 397 setup from the 328i)

He paid extra for them IIRC Rs 3.5L

Any mods in the pipeline ?
How much extra power does the BMW performance kit produce for the 328i?
An exhaust with a nice note will be great, what say ?

BMW have not launched a power kit for the 328i yet.

The only mod planned is an exhaust either a M Performance or Eisenmann, this still is a few months away

Default Tires Tires Tires!!



My fellow 328i'ers... I know this is a specific question, and have read a few articles on this topic in other forums in the site, but here goes-

Over the last 1-2 months, the roads have gone from bad to worse in Hyderabad (more pot holes than ever) and as a result i have two blown tires (started off with a small bubble on the side wall and within a span of 2-3 days a long tear on the sidewall) so am having them replaced under insurance.

Several BHPians suggest that it is better to stick to RFTs as they are a safer option but my recent experience is that there is heavy pulling towards the side with the damaged tire (esp during breaking) and a steady rumbling noise even at speeds beyond 30 Kmph.

I am now in a dilemma weather to stick to the RFTs or change to regular tubeless (I also have a BMW secure package and the vehicle is less than 6 months old). Pl. help!!
