335xi & STi Snow Pics & Drifting Video

We pretty much had our first chance to go out and have some fun in the snow so we took advantage of it. Unfortunately we didn't get too much so there was actually a little too much grip but we were still able to have some fun.

It was quite the eventful night... First parking lot we were in I got video of my buddies STi then a plow came along with security and they asked us to leave. Next we went to another parking lot and got to get some good video of both my car and the STi. One of my other friends ran over a curb and wound up with a flat tire. We got it jacked up and got 4 bolts out but the 5th one wouldn't budge and the wrench stripped... Anyways it was still an extremely fun night, hopefully we can get some more snow this year

The STi looks so much better to me. BMW needs to add something more like M1 to the entire 3 lineup. Doesn't look aggressive enough.

Well you're looking at an STi which is supposed to be agressive and look fast compared to a 335 with just the normal bumper and no msport...

Yea they're both really nice and each different in certain ways. My buddy loves his STi but we both like each others cars better in certain aspects so we switch occasionally. The STi is definitely a fun car to drive.

Hahaha a delivery van must have been insane... I wish we got more snow this was more of a light dusting and not even an inch I think.
