The balance between performance and luxury is unlike any other.
Enjoy the new ride!
Exactly how I feel lol
When i'm not driving, I'm like why am I paying $701.26 a month on this car payment!! But then I drive it and get thrown back in my seat, hugging curves and what not, and I'm like Yup I love this car! Totally worth it!
I bought my 2009 335xi in April with 19,272 miles, now after 9 months and some modding it now has 37,000 miles. Hit 37,000 on my way to work tonight. Love every minute of it!

That first drive home was
Then I got it home and being my age I got
from alot people. Then some remorse set in. "Dude you're only 26 why do you need a car like this?" " You didnt even give yourself enough time to REALLY enjoy the extra money.... great job, idiot" "You have a siberian husky, good look with the fur, bro"
That is alot like my story. I had my 2001 325i in the shop getting a head gasket and Power Steering pump replaced, and they gave me a 335i as a Loner car. I loved it so much, the power and all the extra gadgets that my 2001 doesn't have.
Well my buddy worked at the BMW dealership and we got to talking about the car and he said he had a used one in mind that I would love. I had no intention of buying the car, and I wasn't even looking for a second car at all. Well he showed me the car, and I spent some time driving it. Needless to say I was sold on it. We went inside put together the paperwork, and I drove off in my CPO 2009 335xi and left the 325i for a couple days due to work and picked it up the next week.
I'm 21, but at the time I bought the 335xi I was only 20. People were looking at me like wtf haha they didn't believe that someone who is 20 could afford a car like that. They thought it was my parents, or that my parents paid for it. hahahah made me happy to be able to show them the registration saying that it was my car and their jaws dropped to the ground.
I wouldn't trade me 335xi for the world. The only thing I wish it had was iDrive and that it was a manual. Other than that the car is exactly what I want!
