If you're happy with the power then I wouldn't suggest doing anything to it. If reliability is a concern then there's no point opening up more possibilities for it to fail. Things will wear quicker, costing you more money in the long run.

It's down to you but if it's your daily driver that you need to commute to work in and not just a car for fun, then I wouldn't bother personally.

This is my thoughts exactly. I mean I am not drag racing my car, so I don't need to do any tunes to it that will give me 400hp. My biggest concern is keeping the car reliable and running great. I do like the bmw power performance upgrade though, it sounds like it keeps everything stock and just gives more response to the throttle, so that to me sounds like a nice option.

I also came from a 350z track. At times I still miss that car cause it was a good little drifter. I too wasn't planning on tuning my 335i but after I rode in another members tuned car I had to get the tune. Enjoy the new ride

eh you cant worry about that if you like the car then a couple grand isnt everything. as long as you have all the options you wanted its hard to always get the best deal if you want a manual for instance finding navi and the color you want is 10x harder. If you have to pay a little more for a warranty and the options thats just part of buying used as you cant just spec out everything and compare apples to apples like with a new car.

Wish i can get a deal like that. 30K must be nice.
I was talking to the dealer, hes trying to find me a nice 335, but he told me that if i pay him $1000 deposit he will go to an auction and look for exactly what i want, otherwise its going to be hard to find what i want. Have you guys heard that before or is this guy trying to milk me for $$$?

It's not like he is gonna miss work if he goes to the auction haha. I don't even think he has to go, all he needs to do is find the car in the national Manheim auction database, buy it and arrange for shipment, etc.

Damn dealers. Ok so definitely not giving him a $1000 incentive to do what he already would do. He said he just doesnt want to buy a car without any deposit you know, in case i change my mind, then he's stuck with a luxury car that ordinary people arent in the market for.
Any chance I can get access to that auction database?

Beautiful! Very low miles too! I think the BMW Performance Power upgrade is the best way to go if you're doing anything-the car is fast enough for me stock. With OEM stuff, you can always rely on the quality of the engineering.
