The performance as standard is pretty good I just fing the car can feel a bit heavy on initial pick up, this could be the engine still being on the tight side but hopefully the extra torque at lower revs will liven things up a little
Nurburg eh, great! Just don't wreck her down there.. there are plenty of ways to do it on that particular track :-)
You really think the car is slow on pickup? Are you i manual mode? In D it will start in second. Also, you have to get used to the way it pulls. Compared to the 335i the 335d's pull feels more linear. It's relentless rather than explosive.
