The 335i is no worse than my old E46 325i for MPG's I dont think.

Exactly! But i am not going to lie, my 335i does cost a lot more than my previous clk 270d.

240 for 6 months tax... roughly 500 to insure, road tax and bmw extended warranty a month + all the bmw servicing annually... But Everytime i get in my car, i have a huge smile on my face...

Yep the tax and general running costs do add up.

As you say though.......worth it for the smile it puts on your face.

Liking what I hear, cars are there to be enjoyed, so what if it costs a little more to do so, you only live once!

The sound the 335i makes alone is worth the higher tax costs!

Hi Everyone!

Long time lurker here and thought it was about time to join up and become a member to join in the debates, banter and general goings on.

I guess you'd rather know about my car than me - so I have a lovely Sapphire Black 320iSE touring that is the best car I have owned (and my first BMW), but I have my eyes on another car for me and one for the lady so probably an X3 and a 1 series in time to come!

I would add pictures but all conventional methods are failing me and I can't find the 'how to' to check that I am not being very stupid.

Would LOVE a 335d, but sadly I have to limit my CO2 emmissions to 145 as I'm using a company car allowance to fund the vehicle :-(

2006 BMW 335d  [0.00]
Hi
Another newbie here!.

I've lurked around here for a while as the other bmw forum I'm a member of is slowly dying. I've had a couple of BMW's prior to my 335d. Namely a 330d and an M Roadster.

My 335d was recently detailed so here she is..
