Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

You're cool and all, but my wife has you beat...




These were my favorites, but also received for the 335d were...
-BMW Performance rear diffuser for M-Sport Rear bumper

-Gloss black interior

-IND painted reflectors

-New valve stem caps for the winters
-iPod integration cable

Have I mentioned that I love my wife?

...better luck next year, St. Nick!

(PS Sorry for the poor photo execution; was in a hurry & it was a quick pre-snow test fit. I WILL TAKE BETTER PICS IN THE SPRING ONCE I GET EVERYTHING ON THERE AT ONCE; these ones are terrible, I know Also, no I do not have plans for a drop)

That is a nice set of wheels you have there. Did your wife pick them out or did you leave some hints? She did well.

How do you like the 335d? What kind of mileage do you see? What kind of driving do you do?

Congrats on the new wheels.

Thanks! The painted reflectors are in the garage awaiting install, and I couldn't agree more on he calipers. I'll probably be tackling that when the weather tarts to warm up a bit.

Lol. I love shameless plugs! I'll check it out when it comes up, but I'm thinking LSD is my next big requested purchase.

Thanks, JD! Yeah, I need as much suspension travel & undercarriage clearance as I can get driving through DC/MD/VA every day. Believe it or not, I bottom out as is. I may eventually drop it about .4-.5", but that would be the max.

Thanks, EH! The gift was more the approval of the purchase rather than unwrapping a set of RGRs on the 25th.

As far as the d goes, I love it. I drive 30-40k miles/year, so the car couldn't be much more ideal. Luxurious & comfortable, but sporty & powerful, yet economical and "green". I run a tune that puts down over 425lb/ft to the wheels, drive with a very heavy foot, and spend a lot of time idling, but I still average about 30mpg. If I take it easy on the throttle I've gotten as high as 40s on long highway trips. With only city driving, you'll average in the mid-to upper 20s. Don't let the gas mileage fool you, though; the thing has a surplus of umph and is a blast to drive.

Congrats, zamboni! You even went with the Christmas color . Do you have any plans to modify or will you keep her just like she is? Either way, she's a beaut. Enjoy!

Yeah, buddy. She (and I) couldn't agree more. There is a sis, but she is about 15 years older and has a very different personality. My wife is more like her brother (who's also spoken for).

That works. It's a heck of a nice ride just the way it is. I first started talking my wife into mods for her car when I bought her the winter wheel/tire setup and she saw that she could decide how her car looked (and it could look better than other people's )
