Hello,

We just got our 320i this Friday. I find it really hard to get information on the model we have since it's not available in the US.

Question 1: Is the 320i part of the E46 series? Or does it have another number?
Question 2: Where can I get information on the 320i on the web?
Question 3: Why is the 320i not available in the US?

Any information would be great!

Thanks,
Max

Question 1: yes e46
Question 2: Try maXbimmer.com (a canadian bmw forum)
Question 3: I dont think it would be a bmw that the US consumer would want. (IMO)

Thanks for your quick response Turbo.
Why do you think the US consumer would not want it?

Ah ok. Thanks for the info man.
And thanks for the compliment Silver. We had a Civic before. You have no idea how happy I am right now. I just cant stop smiling as soon as I think about the 320i, see the 320i, or drive the 320i...

By the way, I'm also open to any websites you guys could suggest for more reading on the 320i or just on BMW in general.
Anyone has any suggestion on what I could do to the car to make it cooler / better that's not going to cost me too much?

Thanks again,
Max

Wink

Sup Iceman -
We got our car last Friday and drove all night. I got up the next morning at 7am to take the pictures. So basically, it's the wax the dealer put on the car + 5 hours of driving that you are looking at on the pictures.

I'm still looking into tip and tricks to clean the car. It's black, so it basically looks amazing when it's clean (that's about 5 to 10 minutes after it's been cleaned) and after that it's already dirty and "asking" for a wash

I'm wondering what's the best way to keep it clean all the time but with minimal effect. Anyone got any good links or suggestions for this?

Thanks,

There are things called Dry Wash, which wash ur car in like half the time, but i have never tried them.

Also, you should look into getting a California Duster. Its like a dust mop for ur car, special coating on the yarn/threads grab the dust instead of moving it around on ur car. Thats about the quickest way to keeping ur bimmer clean w/o washing it every hour!

Just wondering, I thought the 320i has a I-6 2.2L engine...

someone mentioned that it is 2.0L somewhere up there....
