Just last week, a year after I bought it I added the BMW PE ($1,124)and PPK ($450) + installation cost ($420). I'm very happy with the new sound and added performance.
Of course there are aftermarket performance tunes with more hp/tq than the PPK but my plan is to keep her 6yrs/100k miles or longer.
Both are great cars and it all comes down to which one you want. I saved about $5000 by getting the 335i. Just spent $2000 in the exhaust and PPK.
Out of curiosity, if paddle shifters are an issue or you, being a paraplegic how is actually driving the car not a problem?
Not to be rude or anything, I was just curious.
