Drove the N55 for the first time today....

I started my new job at BMW today. First thing we did... test drive a bunch of cars! I started with 2011 335i coupe sport. Now I know I have some mods on my 07 but I drive it around on map 0 often. I have DCI and DPs so there may be some extra WHP even at map 0 but no more than 30whp max. I must say that I was a bit disappointed with this cars performance. It wasn't slow by any means but after looking under the hood at that changes, I thought I saw a lot of potential for extra HP. Looks like there is a second duct for air going to the box almost like the Dinan set up for the n54. The single has a big hit right at the middle of the gear but dies off quickly. The cat on this thing was huge ( i think thats what I was looking at... it appeared to have a o2 sensor and a line running from it.) Take that thing off and maybe it uncages the beast??

I will drive the 335is tomorrow and see If I notice a difference.

I also drove x5, z4(M car). The Z 4 was amazing! That sport button is magic.

Anyone in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area! Please feel free to contact me regarding pricing on new vehicles, CPO and stock parts as well. I also know where to get your modded car worked on as long as its code free, NO Speed Delimiters but tunes are ok. FMIC, DPS, DCI, Catch Cans... all ok. I am in no way saying I recommend that you have your car serviced with Mods. I am just saying that the Service Dept will gladly council you if you decide that its better to leave a modded car thats running well alone rather than risk damage by removing and re-installing parts over and over. PM me for details about the how and where....

I can take a deposit on a new 1 M. Standard colors, and options I an hold with with $1000-$3000.

If you work for Avon or something and want a pink one or something like that we usually take 10%

Your box is full so I can't PM you details....

We should start to see them come next year late Summer.

What are you driving now?

OK... drove the M3 today... huge disapointment. I was in love with the outside and the inside... Under the hood . No wonder I smoke them on the highway. It felt slow!

Then I drove a 135 with M sport package... I think I found my next car. I love my E90 so much that I thought that the coupe was going to be my car but the sportier version. After drive this 135.... I changed my mind. It's going to be 135 N55 for me. This N55 had lots of life to it. Not sure if the M Sport 135 is like the 335is pushing 14psi out of the box??? You know its my job to find out.....!!! I love my new job!

We all drive bimmers!

We have a 1 m on the way. It's black and may be spoken for but they can be ordered. In our status meeting today we confirmed $5000 hold list refundable until it is bring built. As for qualifications, I have been in sales for @ 20 years now and I've been a customer service
manager a time or two for a medical supply store. I have been selling Fords and gmc/Buick for about a year. I have been driving BmWs the whole time so I don't mind " selling" them because I am sold myself. Just pm me if your seriously considering ordering. I am not sure if admin would considering this soliciting as a vendor or non-vendor and I don't want to break any rules out here. You can't paypal me a deposit or anything... Just general info here, dealers are taking orders for them. Feb is a projected arrival time of the black one we have on the way.
