What do you do ? Are you joking ? Now you try to find a girlfriend and you make her a child who will then grow up and he'll buy a bmw when he'll be 14 and then he'll find a girlfriend and make her a child...

Geez, there is something seriously wrong with some people on the board.

To answer some of your questions:

- A piggyback can be a big improvement over your SSTT. From what I can make out, check out the JuiceBox 3 (JB3). You would take your SSTT out and put in the JB3 instead. It allows potentially higher boost etc etc.

- Intakes for the 335 aren't big gainers. *Might* help a chipped engine breath more - but not conclusive info around.

- Exhaust mods can give you some more power - esp if you get into catless downpipes etc.

- Good to run high octane fuel (95+) if you can.

Dude, ignore the wankers and dickheads, be safe and enjoy your car!

I remember reading about that. Guys on the forum were giving the kid a hard time. Pretty tragic. Some of Izzman7995's responses are very similar to that of AmericanM5. Look up the story and learn from his mistake. I know I thought I was invincible at the age of 15. But I had a used Toyota pickup truck my dad bought off a gardner. Who knows what kind of damage I would have done with a 335i back then.

You guys need to lay off us teenagers. Some of us are as mature as a 20 year old. I was only 14 when I paid cash for mine. I earn my own way by taking lunch money from fifth graders and pimping out my sister. I don't feel any more mature now at 16 than when I was 14. I'm sure I'll feel about the same when I'm 20 or even 21.

My e92 is pretty tricked out. I'm putting down about 500rwhp and my best ET is 10 flat. I love the look on ricers' faces when I blow past 'em.

Iz this you?

So how much do you want to spend. My advice to you would be this, drive the car stock - enjoy it - respect it - learn it. After a few months, start off with some nice wheels and suspension and or exhaust. Another approach on the more conservative side might be to start with tints and smaller body modifications.

Since you're 15 year old, I would say this to you - enjoy the car and be careful. I'm not trying to 'little boy' you - I just know that as I've gotten older, I've realized in hindsight - exactly how inexperienced I was as a driver at that age. You're getting a powerful car, it might not be an m3 - but it can really pull and make you feel a bit too comfortable around curves Enjoy the car and the highschool p***y you'll be pulling

Just remember, be careful - and congrats on the wip.

Before you spend a penny on the car you should attend several driving schools. 99 percent of the drivers can not get anywhere close to the potential of the stock car on the track. Not a single good driver would ever get anywhere near the potential of the car on the street. Sadly however many bad drivers attempt to get near the cars potential on the street and often injure innocent people.

If he didn't want for people to comment on his age he wouldn't have posted it, since 99% of the car questions posted here can be answered without stating how old you are.

Anyways, congrats on the car and enjoy it in good health.

Tough crowd in here, eh?

To the OP, I say don't fuck with it too much. You don't need more performance than it has stock. Like someone else said, take the money you'd spend on a mod and attend a performance driving school with it.

Oh yeah, and +1 on enjoying the pussy, too. Live it up.

More importantly, why does a 15 year old need a 300hp car when he just mastered the bicycle?

At 15, you can own neither a business or a car. Just fess up and say mommy and daddy bought it.

Who cares ? That's his own (and maybe his parents) business. Even if he kills someone on the road, unless that someone is one of your relatives.

Return the car, buy an E46, and spend your new found wealth on driving schools. Since the part of your brain which determines/assess risk will not be fully developed until you're in your early 20's you've just exponentally increased the chances that you'll be involved in a catastrophic accident. Shame on your parents.

EX: During my time as a teenager 15-18, there were 7 accidents involving kids from my school. 5 of the accidents involved reckless driving on part of the child, and 4 of the 5 were driving BMW's.


Good Luck

LOL this thread is epic.

to izzman, go to Technical Forums section and go through each and every sub section for all the information you need. Most of the people know what they're talking about, so you'll be able to learn a lot about the car and its potential. Definitely check out the picture forum also to get an idea of how you want to mod your car cosmetically.

Have fun and be safe.
