I'm SERIOUSLY considering one when they hit US shores.
The 335d runs an autobox only due to the amount of torque, this puts a lot of potential owners off, but it is actually suprisingly good.
Off the line it is superb. I ran at an event last year called Fighting Torque (check Youtube) here in the UK and it outlaunched every car it came up against. I am running the same event this year over the standing mile.
