Luckily, your GTI came with rust proofing from the factory \:\)

Look underneath!

Yeah I got it used, but it was CPO from the dealer, and it's on both sides of the car, so I doubt it's anything accident related.

Fuck all you assholes with this 200k shit, I didn't take the contract gig, so I'm at my old place with a nice raise.

Newer BMWs come with factory undercoating and a zinc coating, thats how they can offer an 11 year rust perforation warranty. If you can drive one, you can certainly afford to replace it within 11 years. If you were driving some jap crap, then yeah, I sold my 97 subaru with just because it started rusting, it ran perfectly fine. Sold our 2005 before any rust started, because we know 7 years with Japanese cars is the limit. My 2002 M3 had no rust in 2010 when I sold it.

As for E36s being more rewarding to drive, my neighbour has an 2002. You want road feel you got it. Hell, even an E30 M3 is more rewarding to drive, that doesn't mean I want to own one to DD. The E46 was the best balance of modern without all this computer isolation. E36 is just plain old now Oh, and E90 looks dated as shit now that the F30 is out They just didn't age well.

Wes, WTF is up with that rust, you drive that shit through salt water or something?

F30 aside from the ugly snout is not a huge leap from the E90 LCI.

Don't know what the fuck you are smoking but pass some over! Once I saw the camo shots of the F30 and saw the headlights I was sold on the E90 LCI...LOL

Wes, that's fucked. Looks like the weld seams are fucked...need new door skins at that rate.

My car has had a regular life, with me. That rust was starting when I bought the car but didn't know it, a friend found it, so it's been there since it was 3 yrs old.

I hate the F30 iDrive screen, and LOVE it in the E90, and since I spend the time inside, not outside that matters. Now, if I buy an F30 M3 next you can all call me a hypocrite, that's ok with me.

Dude are you talking out of ur ass or what? Have you seen the cic screen and software yet? It looks exactly the same as the F30 loaner I had. The pre-lci does look like its from the stone age though lol. I believe Wes is talking about the placement of the screen... It looks like an after thought on the F30.

However the 2013 is suppose to have a new screen and idrive. Haven't seen it yet but I'm sure that will be much better than the 2012 which is the same as the lci E90.

^^ I'm talking about the 2013 F10 screen. Freaking beautiful.



As for placement on the E series, the double hump looks like an afterthought, and really screws up the dash.

Oh ok makes sense. Ya the 2013 is a huge leap.

Man ur fucked. The double hump completes the dash. Without it you know there's something missing. F30 is an after thought and looks cheap. The same design in the F10 works because it's a larger dash.

I used to like E46 M3's...still kinda do, but really they do nothing for me. They are the new ricer mobile, you can get one for like 13k locally.

E36 is a damn fine car. I love the e36's with 330 fender mods, fuck wide body, just flared out fenders and they look tits. There are the race version and the blended one. You can stuff a 275 tire like a BAUCE.

Yea riveted ones are for track cars, the molded ones are out there. There is a guy with an LS swap running 285 squared IIRC with the properly done fenders. Looks legit, can't find the pics though.

I didn't look under the car. But my passenger side door is rusted from the inside on the A-pillar, rust on the driver side fender, hatch. It's a 11 years old car, so I expected. Compare to 2006 Mazda 3 and older Protege's rust problem, I am very happy.

You used to say this EXACT same thing about the E90. Will tomorrow ever come?



Elmie is right about what I meant, I LOVE the lines of the E90 dash. I know my interface is archaic but I'm "used" to it, it's not bad.

Swap the M3 for the 330 for a while, that ought to help the process along.

My thoughts exactly. IMO, that is the only 3 series that hasn't aged well.

^^ What? Are you serious? Look how dated the E90 is dude. Yes, the E46 M3 is the new civic, but thats nothing that the E36 didn't go through when it got cheap. Why put tacky fender flares on the E36 when the E46 comes with it stock. I ran 285 rubber for track/autocross with no fender modifications. People are running 305/315 with some fender rolling.

Fender mod is optional, wtf are you comparing? You aren't making sense right now.

How is the e90 dated? Maybe you are getting that idea because they are common as hell and basically look like a corolla...they've aged just fine. The LCI ones especially don't look dated at all.

If you think the e90 is dated then I am sure you must definitely be convinced your x5 also aged horribly because it's the same sh!t.

^LMAO

Dude E90 dated? LCI has the same L shaped designed tail lights as the current generation. Side profile looks like the same shit, only the headlight is radically different.

Pre-lci does look a bit dated with the old headlights and the butterfly tails...I especially hate the grill and I have never liked the E90 till the LCI came out.

X5 will look dated as fuck when the new model is out. None of these cars are aging well, the shapes were just too wierd, nothing gracefull. And yes, the E9X is as common as the Corolla.

Where are you getting the idea that the tail lights look the same? The new 3 tail lights make the car look like a mini 5 series.





The L shaped tail lights are a BMW trademark, so they haven't gone to another shape, but the E90 tails aren't even close to the F30 tails.

The F30 rear looks like an e92 rear.

Either way, the F30 is goregous, and yes it's a mini 5 series. Still don't see how the e90 looks aged.
