It would be like flashing the 1M or 335iS.

Someone asked about other pics, here are some additional ones I took. I also added 2 pics of a 335 XDrive MSport on the lot to compare tires and bumper

Will the dealer do the re-flashing job, if so, anyone has an idea about price?

The bumpers are the same right? Same suspension height as well?

The last pic is a peek into the vent by the fog light showing some sort of rad.

Everything I could tell looked like same MSport Bumper and ride height.

It looks like you can see some sway bar (end link) and axle shaft in there as well.

Those wheels are gonna be SOOO easy to clean compared what I have on my 128i sport...!!! Plus the 2011 seem to have stopped making braking dust!

I'll save 20 minutes per week when washing my car!

Leather Colour

So I'm meeting with the dealer tomorrow to put this together and I was really thinking Ruby black with the dakota oyster leather

But then this guy at the office tells me that cream coloured leather really shows the dirt after a while - can anyone jump in with their thoughts on this? Both previous vehicles (non-BMW) were black leather....

I saw the Jerez and its very nice but I didn't want all (inside/outside) black. The Ruby from what I have seen looks amazing and the interior is really sharp from a 335 I saw a few months ago which had the same Oyster. I assume if you take care of it it will be ok.

Looks like I will be waiting another couple weeks atleast.

After a long ordeal, finally picked up the car tonight! The new idrive is going to take awhile to adjust to, wish they kept the radio controls intact instead of just going through the idrive. The exhaust is a bit louder than expected and has a 'wurble' when it down shifts.
The ride seems more comfortable than the previous E90, was expecting it to be rougher due to the bigger wheels but it seems to be the opposite. Absorbs the bumps in the road much better.

In all honesty, I'm 99% sure the pictures I posted are of the car not on blocks full profile. Its damn near peg on with the 335 MSport in the lot.

I got it late last night so I didn't get a chance to take pics post delivery, but I'll try to take some tonight. Its not as bad as the shipping block makes it look, but there is still a gap.......pretty standard gap on a xdrive 335 in my opinion....

Give us more driving impressions!!!

Do you feel the overboost or during break-in we go easy so we don't feel it?

How do you get the overboost anyways? You floor it and that's all?
It will be stronger for 7-10 secs, and then the power will drop?
(Maybe IS/1M owners can help us with this)

For what its worth, here's my impression so far. I prefix it with that I'm still babying the car a lil so I haven't pushed it yet, so don't flame me .

The car feels much better built than the 2008 335xi that i had. The M wheel is thicker and a tad heavier than the previous sport wheel so haven't gotten used to the turning yet. Going over bumps is more forgiving even though these are 19" vs the 18" on my 08. Its a much more comfortable ride and the handling feels very confident, as if it knows what to expect before I do.

That said.......the n55 even with the extra power and torque, I haven't felt yet. It doesn't feel as raw and the surge that the n54 gave me but that could be because I'm still babying it and not gunning it. I have started at 1st and moderately gunned it to 4500rpm max) I suspect if you floor it, the extra torque will automatically kick in for a brief time and that's where I would feel the extra kick.

Having driven a new manual 335is vert as well (which has a n54 engine I believe), I know that it still doesn't feel as raw as the 08 335xi. I can't put my finger on it, its just a feeling. Maybe I could just be missing the car, I don't know, lol. The is does feel faster than the 08 above 80km/h, I suspect because it was a vert and had the extra weight which caused the low end surge feel to be diminished.

My only gripe so far is that the exhaust note is a tad louder than i expected. It sounds awesome from the outside, but when city driving in normal conditions, it sounds like I'm on a plane sitting next to the engine.......its a low bass sound that seems to fill the cabin.

Again, I've only put 20-30kms on it cause I got it late last night and its mainly driving in the suburbs, still haven't decided if I want to clear bra it so i don't want to take it on the highway yet.

PS: There's no 'individual' or any badging that makes it stand out as a special edition. Only way to tell from the outside is the paint colour and M aero bumpers and that its not an M3. Interestingly, I saw a white 335is vert in the delivery area and it also had fogs.
