    New Owner 2012 328i XDrive.

    Hello All:

    Just added a 2012 328 Xdrive in Mineral White Metallic as my daily driver. And if course I have questions:

    Are shop manuals available to download?

    Leather care? whats everybody using?

    Online parts supplier for Genuine BMW Parts? The first aid kit, two of the tools and the safety triangle are missing from the trunk.

    Brake upgrades? Would like better looking calipers/discs

    Better Wheels. I like what I got but like a different style of BMW factory wheels.

    Thanks all
    Looking forward to being part of the Forums!

    Also a new owner. I am using the Trinova leather cleaner and conditioner. Seems to work very well.

    Welcome!!! I also just bought a 2012 328xi in February! they’re a nice fun car I love it so far! The only main problem I’ve had are the stock run flats! I’ve had 3 flats in 3 months and it’s ridiculous but I’m replacing them this week! So just keep your eyes on the road and hope you don’t have as much trouble as I did! Also hoped you got the road hazard Package at the dealer!

    I replaced my wheels with style 284 (more spokes) and non run flats. Huge difference.
    Rock auto seems to have most of the genuine oem parts keeping in mind that bmw uses a lot of non bmw parts... Bosch, Mann for example. Ecs tuning is good too albeit a bit more expensive.
