Awesome, congrats!

Nice combo, you guys in the UK get the M193 wheels as standard, right?

Will order my lemans 325d E91 in september for delivery in december.

The engine must be a blast, my dealer told me yesterday. Can't wait!

Great choice, congrats! 400Nm might sound a lot now, but I bet you'll be wanting even more after a couple of months. A good remap should get you 500Nm, 225hp & 40+ mpg

Your right, a quick remap to bring it inline with the 330d (as the same engine) and hey presto!!

That is true manual only... i prefer manual to be honest, but the 335d had to have a auto box! i can see why when you see the torque figures etc!

They are about 30k on the road, which is only 2.5k less than the 330d, so you might as well go for the 325d chip it and job done!
