My new 335i e90

Howdy,

After what seemed like an eternity, I finally took delivery of my 2009 Monaco Blue 335i e90 at the end of October. I've been way too busy to take pictures of the new ride... until now. I have to say that this car is a blast to drive. I don't feel any turbo lag whatsoever and I have absolutely no complaints (well... except that there's no real place to put sunglasses). Yadda, yadda, yadda, go ahead and put me down as another ecstatic BMW owner. Ok, enough yapping, here are the pics. Enjoy!

Looking good! Any interior shots?

The style 287 rims make the car look even better. I plan to upgrade my 328i wheels to the style 287 rims when i get mine.

Thanks. There's nothing to see in the interior - I didn't go with the new iDrive, so it's just your black leather. I did take a picture of the heated steering wheel button, but I figured no one would be interested in that.

Very nice, love the color! You'll have to let us know how you like the heated steering wheel.

Nice... but is it me, or is there something missing about the new shadowline trim (instead of chrome) on a darker coloured car?

Very good looking car... the E90 is starting to grow on me big time.

How's the engine response? Do you feel any lag?

Honestly, I think the car is missing something without 162s :-\

really? I think those shoes rock. Unlike the very very similarly styled 335i 2dr SP wheels the actual lip is curved and does not have a crease which for some reason makes the wheels look even bigger than 18s

Thanks!

To be honest, I really didn't dig the e90 at all until the LCI came out (I had an 09 coupe on order but canceled in favor of the LCI). The LCI fixed the two biggest gripes I had with the e90 - the headlights and taillights. They even got rid of the chrome mustache on the kidney grills, which was a bonus. I think the LCI e90 looks much meaner and more taut than the previous model.

So far the engine response has been great. I haven't floored it yet (honest Abe!) because I just broke 1200 miles today. I'll whip it around a bit when I have some open road and report back, but so far, I don't feel any lag below 1500 rpm. The car just goes, and goes fast too, thanks to all the lovely torque.

I have a co-worker with an 08 335i. I'm currently on an extended vacation from work, but as soon as I get back, we're going to mash on each other's car to see if there's any difference b/t his response and mine. So far, we've both been happy, but it'll be nice to get a frame of reference.

I honestly thought they were the same wheels as the e92s haha.
