New to the club!

Hello everyone!

Long time lurker, first time posting.

Finally was able to obtain this beauty of a car: 2008 135i

Seems to have most of the options which is pretty awesome!
54K miles.

Any tips for this first time BMW owner?

Thanks!

Not very Familiar with BMW so i'm not as confident about any DIY at the moment. Will do tomorrow once the suns out!

Drove 150 miles to just test drive the thing. In my mind i was thinking "Drive it today, think about over the weekend."

...3 hours later...

"Thank you Mr. Redonred1, and congratulations on your new BMW!"

Welcome to the club. At 54k you should change the plugs and walnut blast the intake side of the head.

Not very confident with modding so i'd have to take this to either the dealer or an indie…but from the search I did that may cost in the hundreds/thousands
