With a new Audi Q5 in the driveway, it's time to reluctantly post my 335i for sale. I've had it for 3 years now and it's been fantastic. We needed an SUV in the family and can't keep both the Q and E90 unfortunately.
I've used the 335i to commute to work for the past few years, putting just over 35,000 miles on the car and it's been a pleasure. This is by far the most fun and practical daily driver I've ever owned. It has not been involved in any accidents and has clearly been taken care of. You'll see that my additional upgrades were few and far between, but really compliment a great platform - the full 2010+ nav install is both unique and extremely convenient.
Title in hand
Located in Aurora, IL (45min southwest of Chicago)
Mechanical - 10/10
No leaks, creaks, clunks, shakes or shimmies. The transmission shifts great. Oil and filter were changed religiously with Mobil One 0w40 fully synthetic every 3,000 miles. The 335 had brand new tires installed this Spring. The fuel pump was replaced by Bill Jacobs BMW when I first bought the car as a preventative measure. OEM brakes were replaced with cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads to reduce brake dust last fall - they work great. I've never had a single problem with the car and I don't foresee any repairs in the near future.
The 335 received a full detail (interior, wash, wax and seal) this August from the guys at Bill Jacobs BMW. During the winter, it's washed weekly to remove any remnants of salt or sand. It's very clean, but not perfect. There are no door dings or scratches, but you will find a few very small rock chips on the front bumper and hood (thanks to commuting on the highway). There is a very small dimple in the center of the rear bumper from the previous owner. Because it's so minor (smaller than a dime) and I didn't want the car to have paint work, it has not been taken care of. Other than the minor things mentioned above, the car is extremely clean and shows very well. I'm the guy who parks in the back of the grocery store lot.
The interior is as clean as it gets. Eating and drinking are not allowed in my cars. The back seats have been used less than a handful of times. The carpet, seats, trim, dash, headliner, etc. are all in fantastic shape. As expected (and the only reason I rate it a "9.5/10") there a few very minor wrinkles in the driver seat bolster from entering/exiting the car. All interior electronics work as the should. The speakers sound great, the nav is a fantastic upgrade and the interior shows virtually no wear.

The system fits, works and looks like it came from the factory.
