:dancingpontiac: The price isn't too bad for a BMW. Though you could've gotten a goat or a G8 or 8 Venturas or a Solstice GXP for the kind of money I know you put down on that thing. But then again, Pontiacs aren't BMWs :blink:

The only thing that would be on par would be a G8.

BMWs are nice, but what I don't like is their maintainence costs. Parts 80% of the time are only made by BMW themselves, and cost an arm and a leg to buy. That 328i has the smaller wheel combo, so replacement rubber won't be a killer in it's future.

However, if you got the money, there is a great aftermarket with these cars. They have a rich touring car heritage, and can be made beastly with bolt ons and a tune. Lots of suspension bits to play with too.

If it was mine, since it's white, I'd rock a CF hood and trunk, as set of E49 M3 CSL wheels, drop it a bit, header and full catback, intake, mild cam and a tune.

its a BMW... you dont tint the tails.. you color tint the headlights

sorry ghost but im moving down your way.. that car is sexy as hell

true say on being expensive upkeep though.. my bosses old 5 series.. just for the upper rad hose alone was 150 bucks plus shipping

regardless can you pick me up at the airport?

its awesome! the headlights, interior, push start button. the only thing i didnt like (compared to my 6) was the steering wheel, its a bit harder to turn and the gas pedal, theres like a lag when taking off. hmm...maybe ill be a ''Mark'' and return it. :dancingpontiac:

The gas pedal I'm sure can be fixed with a tune. BMW's aren't really my piece of pie but this one does look good! Tint it NOA though!

Congrats on the new ride!!! My boy had a 745 and he bitched and complained about how much it cost to maintain... His solution.... He sold it and bought a Masseratti...

The G6 has electronic throttle control. Most cars made these days are drive-by-wire. BMW's system sucks. It's laggy, for lack of a better word.
