I didn't say you, I said lots of people. Intakes, Charge pipes, oil catch cans, custom mapped piggybacks/flashes, umm yes...that is what folks want. Last time I checked VIP wasn't selling locked differentials though

Those are some sick numbers...but i would have to agree that its great to see people push the envelope on these cars, but most of us would never go to the exteme like this...But kudos to them, but the most I would ever purchase from them is maybe their intake, the other stuff is totally for a drag racer and not a daily driver....but thats "my" opinion!!!

There will be a time, when they will use as a slogan "with over 6 years of 335i/BMW Turbo tunning experience". That will worth a lot IMO.

I see many ppl doing that in the future, once this car is about 6-8 years old and cost about 20-25K, just as some have done with 323's 318's. And VIP seems to be on track for those customers that will be demanding this mods.

I doubt it. Do you see 2004/2005 M3s selling for that? Hell, no.

I read the drag times and their 11.9 run was on pump gas, so a few more mods and race gas helped probably.

I dont think nitrous was involved but thats just my opinion.
The car is pretty much making 500 crank hp

and what makes you think a regular 3 series is going to hold its value like an M car?

In 3 years you will be able to pick up used 07 335s for 25k-30k no problems just like you can pick up 3 year old 330s now.

BMW builds regular 3 seires like 10-1 over there M3s

Theres already like 15 335s on this very forum for sale.When the e46 M3 came out it took you over a year to get it if you wernt one of the first ones on the list and there def wasnt any foresale like there are 335s these days.

will see when the new M3 fianlly hits the streets how fast the 335 will drop because everyone will want to jump ship that were driving around 335s waiting for the new M

I cant believe you compaired a regular 3 series value to an M car.Dont be suprissed in 15 years that a e30 and e36 M3 will be worth more than a 335

+1 couldn't agree with you more. Most if not all on this forum are trying to get most of these mods on their car and unless you've been in his car, I wouldn't be so quick to say that it is not a daily driver.

IM looking at a local 04 330xi with 50k on it for 19k Iv seen regular 330i's going for 11k-15k all over the place and 20k gets you a really clean one.

have you ever owned a 7 series?
