Back in an N54 [Pic Heavy]

Hey all,

Not new to the platform, but decided to back in it. I'm addicted to cars and don't quite have the budget for exotic cars, so I purchase too many, mod them, get bored, sell and repeat. Here's a little history of the cars I've owned.

All manual trans minus the Ford and Prius.

1. 2003 Ford Taurus (Lulz)
2. TRD Supercharged Scion tC
3. 2002 Honda S2000 (Turbo - 530whp/339wtq)
4. 2007 BMW E90 335i (Only got to JB+it)
5. 2009 Honda Civic Si (FG2)
6. 2007 BMW E92 (FBO+ E70 Fuel)
7. 2009 Toyota Prius (Lol interim)
7. 2015 Subaru WRX STI (Stock)
8. 2009 BMW 135i (Stock, pending 1M + FBO conversion)

So I just purchased my 135i from Carmax for a pretty sweet deal and lucky to find it with the OEM BMW Performance Exhaust. Lots of maintenance items done by them prior to sale. Pretty difficult to find a decently clean 135i with okay options in manual in Northern CA, so I was pretty stoked when I saw this 3 days ago and had to purchase it immediately. Looking forward to going back to FBO+ like I was with my 335i coupe. Really looking forward to the 1M Conversion. Pretty fun car and it feels a tad more agile than the 335i. Here are some pics of my previous rides and current!

Welcome!

Thanks, I had a fun run with it. Actually sold it to a member that is active on here, so it's interesting to see it's progress with someone else.

If you ever met my dogs, they could eat an entire 25lb bag of dog food and still be hungry. They have no limits.

The STi was an amazing ride. Not going to lie, probably one of the most fun cars I've driven. The sad part, the engine failed at 25,000 miles. I was completely stock cruising on the freeway when it started to smell like burning and then eventually rod knock. Dealer suspected rod bearing failure. I'm pretty good with maintenance, so it confused me. Before I purchased the car, I saw how frequent their motors failed and thought it was due to bad driving/lack of maintenance. That belief proved me wrong. Lost confidence in the car and decided to sell it and get back in a BMW. One of the reasons being power is not easy with those cars. Anything reliable requires a built motor. Not really about wanting to build an entire motor.

Thanks! It was a great car. Perfectly optioned, literally with every option offered with a 6MT. Should have kept it longer, but that's part of my problem I guess T_T.
