Thoughts on the new 335 sedan?

I absolutely love the new interior of the 335 sedan sport line (that red piping and red trim makes it)

http://cache.bmwusa.com/cosy.arox?po...bkgnd=grayroom

Contemplating selling my 2007 335 coupe and leasing a 335 sedan

My thoughts are to put the money from the sale in the bank (take just 2-3k for tasteful mods like Dinan stage 1 / black grilles etc) and simply lease the 335 sedan

I built it to my liking and it was ~$49,500
What should i expect to pay for the lease? 3yrs 10k miles per year.

Have a feeler out to see what my car would be worth
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=649232

Also, does anyone know why there is no change to the 2012 coupe interior? Is this coming late 2012? 2013?

Not so sure I'm sold on the sedan although it might be a nice change from the coupe

Thoughts on this move?

Wait until this summer for the M-sport package to become available, IMO. Look how much more aggressive it looks:

Coupes are a year behind the Sedans. They should be unveiled this fall and available for order in the spring of 2013.

I am thinking about getting a f30 too. The m-sport is a must IMO. The front of the f30 is fugly. 2013 models is when the m-sport will be available as an option.

M sport does look great but my main concern is waiting another year when

1) my car becomes 6 model years old

2) the coupe is also revamped making mine look even older

Currently the interior of the 2012 and 2007 coupe are identical

With mods i have done even some of the outside is similar (updated OSS lights and LED license plate bracket lights removed that yellow look)

2013 f30 with m-sport option should be available for ordering this summer. It is only a few months away.

thanks for all the input, went to see the 335 sedan today in person and I agree it just doesnt do it for me

Really liked the 535 M sport but its a little to luxurious and pricey

Looks like Ill be waiting for the 335 M sport for now.

its gonna be tough to get me out of the e90, the new gen cars are all siding on luxury and efficiency, which means they arent very exciting.

Definitely... Guy moved a 335 F30 from one side of lot to the other. I could barely tell it was on especially compared to my active autowerks exhaust.

Scary because if the 335 becomes too much luxury what is there to buy in that price range?

M3 is a lot more and the 135 just doesn't do it for me.

agreed. drove f30 335i sport line w/ full option (including sport auto) the other day. comparing to e92 it got more lux, comf, and quiet, but the whole car felt too soft for my taste. perhaps m-sport will sharpen things up a little, but i doubt there'll be enough diff to convince me otherwise.

i also made a conclusion that despite the good reviews on the new auto, it still felt boring...

my opinion only

in 2-3 years everyone is going to want a F30/32, this is the same shit all the E46 members said and most of them jumped ship after swearing not to get a E90/92. I'm willing to bet history will repeat itself.

no they didnt, no e46 owner drove a e90 and said "it was duller"

mostly because of the runflats tires, but whatever, point stands
