Red face The new ride - Preview

Hello Forum Peoples,

I just got out of my lease with an 06 325i black/beige.
I've been contemplating on my new car for months (the dealer was kind enough to give me some courtesy months on my lease), i wanted something faster, with better handling. I looked and looked, R32, STI, EVO, but I felt a feeling of remorse when test driving these cars. They just didn't feel the same.. Definitely could never go to Mercedes.. I don't have my boating license. I was on the fence about a new A3 or a used S4.

I decided to go with the best in class...

I got what i wanted... more power, sharper handling... and still retained the infamous charisma of BMW.

Here are some pics, hope you enjoy viewing them as much as i enjoyed taking them. (I only recently stepped into the hobby of photography)

Included are my old car & 5-6 caps of the new one.

Future Mods (Tentative due to economical shrinkage):

Dinan Software (picky about preserving my warranty)
Exhaust & Intake
Light Tint (Fed up with dark tints, need some change)
Front Body Kit (M Aero most probably)
Paint roof black
Last but not least.. the little things that add up (roundels, whiter angel eyes, blow off valve, HID.










Fun Tidbits:

I had a cracked windshield, two missing keys, a hyper extended drivers door (wouldn't close unless shut forcefully), scuffs here and there including on wheels, ripped trunk carpet due to subwoofers moving around; Dealer took the car in free of damage fees. It pays off building rapport with your local San Diego dealer man.

Orange headlight reflectors may result in a serious case of blueballs on a day to day basis.

You can describe the stock exhaust roor on the 335 as a "healthy" sound, it's balanced.
