new daily hauler
 
my wife an I had our first baby in september. we had a lexus IS250 awd, and i sold it becasue it was just a little too tight, and the seats didnt fold in the back. it was also a little underpowered for my liking. now that baby is growing we were on a hunt for a new daily driver. i found a great deal on a 2010 bmw 328i xdrive with sport package/premium package/executive package/winter package and logic 7. 50k on it and in amazing shape.

so i promised myself i wouldnt mod this car this time.....and broke that promise. i already ordered kw coilovers, 19" bbs ch's, splitter, gloss black kidney grilles and a bunch of small other goodies. i cant help myself, haha

a bit

Other than the power, how was the 250? Always liked the looks of the IS.. would consider a 350 for my next DD... that or S4 *smoke*

congrats on the new wheels!

i found it very small inside, especially for somebody like me (being 6'3")

And sitting at the back, was horrible :mad:

Do you have any mods (wheels, suspension) from the IS still?

Z4MC 02-15-2013 02:43 PM

No. I sold it as is.

R8? Do you know him personally? Because the garage pic has a Z4 in it.
