I was closing on a deal for the 2011 Audi S4 and decided to hold off on it and to give the BMW 335 a chance. BMW won on the price and performance was quite similar so this is how I ended up on e90 post and not on audizine.

In 2007 when the 335 rolled out I knew that was the 3 series for me, I was not interested in an M3 and I knew the 335 would deliver in spades the driving experience I was looking for.

The LCI in 2009 sweetened the deal and I very recently picked up a well loved 2009 335 xDrive AT, Premium , Sport & Cold Weather packages with 17k miles on the odo.

Before the arrival my 335 I have never test drove a BMW which made the first drive oh so sweet......looking forward to many miles fun driving.

As long they treat them with respect and aren't asshats about it I don't see any qualms. Finally, the only reason to hate on them is out of envy, which suggests that you wish you were in their shoes and from that we can deduce that if you were in their shoes you would accept the car so you hating on them is only hypocritical.

The only time I have a problem with young kids getting a nice car is when they don't respect it and use it in ways they shouldn't, but this infuriates me even when it isn't a BMW. It could be a new honda, mazda, ford, etc... hell, it could even be a used car. I hate when kids take anything for granted.

My first car was a 14 yr old volvo with 200,000 miles and I got shit on for having such a "lame" car compared to many other kids around me but I was THRILLED to have such a car, and any car at that. No need to be so FVCKING negative all the time. The kid is in this forum because he is passionate about the car and wants to take care of it so back off man.

Also, since you're so concerned with what he did, if he had dealt cocaine or other hardcore drugs starting at an age of 16 and by 18 could afford a BMW would you support this because he made the money himself? Some things in this world are more important than simply working yourself to death to "work for what you get". How about the character of the kid? His morals...? His actions...? Furthermore, many kids are given cars, rather than having to pay for them because the parents' goal is to have the kid focus on school rather than working. If the parents have a decent amount of money, then I don't see the problem with this. It's the kid that HAS to work in order to support themselves because the parents are making just enough to support basic necessities that has to focus on work and school, but things are put in place to make it easier for them to get into school. For the kid who has parents that are at least middle-class, there is no help getting into college except for your grades, test scores, EC activities, volunteering, etc.

So back the fvck off and let us all enjoy this forum for what is about. CARS. Not about our individual lifestyles, morals, or problems with society. I am sorry for going on such a long tangent but this type of bitching is rampant throughout this forum and I find it so insignificant and unnecessary.

^^That is possibly the most important question ever asked.

To answer the OP: I wanted an N54 in something that wasnt too small (1er) and something that wasnt too heavy (5er). It actually made the decision quite easy.

My love for the 3 series started when I was young and took a ride in my uncle's e36 and e46 m3, I've always liked how the 3 series was the perfect size and of course my favorite M car was always the m3. Although I'd love to buy an m3 now, I've decided to go with a 335i. I do plan to buy a manual e46 m3 in the near future.

wanted one since I was a whee little man seeing an M5 for the first time. Didn't realize what it was, but was so fascinated that it was such a sleeper. Unassuming but fast car.

Traded in my 09 civic for one when I had the chance. So far its been the longest I've kept a car. 2.5 years, which is funny because I'm thinking about trading it in.

The meaning of life?

Some would say "42"... but i think on this forum, the answer is "N54"
