Placed my order

After driving the Audi A5 and BMW E92 & E93 328s and 335s, I finally decided on an E92 335i for EDP delivery in July. The most difficult choice was the engine and I opted for power/torque over fuel economy, probably sacrificing some reliability for performance.

Here's how she will be configured: Crimson Red, Black Dakota leather, Aluminum, ZPP, ZSP, Step, Paddles, HD Radio, IPOD/USB, Heated seats.

Now the waiting starts and looking for that first email with the production information.

I've driven both and TRUST ME....you'll not regret it for a bit - you may however regret having a 328i loaner when you have to get your 335i serviced...

Have had them in the past and they are fun. Too much traffic and too much hassle driving an MT in the DC area. Besides the wife drives me nuts because of her shifting or lack thereof when she drives a MT!!

Keep the automatic

Every time you get in a lot of traffic you will curse having a manual. The BMW automatic in my 335 does a great job of shifting for me. I don't have the hassle of dealing with the stick on heavy traffic, and it shifts a lot better and quicker than most manual drivers.

Why do you think Formula one cars no longer use a manual. The automatic is faster.
