#361 of 389 Where to put a satellite radio
Feb 27, 2007 (6:43 am)
I just bought a 2007 328i. Unfortunately it did not come prewired for satellite radio. I already have a sirius replay that I would like to use in the car if I can do it without making it look tacky.
#1. The car is a lease so I can't do anything that could potentially damage it.
#2: I live in California and it is illegal to drive with anything mounted to the windshield (they give you a windshield mount with the radio)
Has anybody put in an aftermarket portable satellite and if so, where/how did you mount it?
#362 of 389 Bluetooth on 2004 BMW 330i

Does anyone know if Bluetooth was standard (or part of Premium pkg) on the 2004 BMW 330i?
#363 of 389 CPO question
Mar 12, 2007 (11:31 pm)
I am thinking about buying a CPO 2004 330i. Are all CPOs 'equal', i.e., if they are the same age and mileage (and options), are they considered to be equally sound mechanically if they are both CPO? Or are there variations that show up in terms of pricing? Any opinions would be appreciated,

I won't say all CPO cars are equal other than that they all carry the same warranty. You don't know how they were serviced and how they were driven. Since the 2004 model is still under the BMW maintenance plan, you can probably assume the required maintenance services have been done by the previous owner. Test drive it and if possible also test drive a new 328i which may give you some idea about the handling since the power differential between the 04 330i CPO and the 07 328i is not that great.

Does anyone know a reliable yet unexpensive place in the greater los angeles to tint windows in a 328i?
#366 of 389 Loud booming sound between 62 to 67
Apr 06, 2007 (7:02 am)
Just wondering if anyone either has the same experience or knows the probable cause of it.
My 2002 325xiT with auto transmission has developed relatively loud booming sound between 62 to 67 on highway, particularly when accelerating. It is quite audible. The car drives well and the booming doesn't associate with any engine power deterioration. The wagon's mileage is 36,000, although the issue above occurred at least 6,000 miles ago.
Anyone has any idea of the probable cause for the problem. Could it be a transmission issue? Thanks for any idea you can share.

Are you still driving on the original tires?
Tire noise is fairly common as the tires wear, and some tire brands & types are much worse than others in this regard.

That's a thought. I never connect the booming noise with the tires which are originals with about 28,000 miles, since I do use snow tires for the winter. Time for tire change soon. It is a relief if it is not a transmission issue. Thanks.

I am running into the same problem, prewired but do not know how to make it work. I have a Razr and would love to use the prewired functionality and did not receive much help from the dealership.
Have you had any luck?
