Exclamation New 335i X-Drive Owner SOON!!

Hey everybody just wanted to say hello to all. this is my very first post here but i just wanted to share with everyone that in about 6-8 weeks (which is NOT soon enough!) i will be the proud owner of a brand new 2010 335i x-drive coupe, alpine white with red leather. i currently own a white 2008 Mercedes C300 4-Matic sport sedan, which is a beautiful car, BUT TOO SLOW FOR ME! i love the mercedes and all but me and my girlfriend used to have a 300 HP turbo car BEFORE the benz and now we just miss the damn power. Every time we see the 335 coupe drive by we kick ourselves. well the kicking is about to come to a stop because the cars already purchased and they took my C300 for a trade!

ok im going to stop running my fingers now. hope to get some good modding ideas from here. i already know im going to get a chip and BOV and rims come spring time. Winter is right around the corner here in NY so i wont be putting anything into her right now...

thanks and hope to hear from some of u guys/girls for advice.

Congrats! You will enjoy your new BMW. Did you get Sport or M-Sport package?

C300 shouldn't have MB badge on it. The interior is crap + it's very slow. C350 is a much better alternative, but still can't touch 335.

Thanks and no unfortunetly no sport packages. just pretty basic with the red leather. i got the automatic with steptronic. i didnt bother with any packages because the price was still a little too high for my liking. monthly payments are gonna be in the $600's plus my insurance every month is about $200. im comfortable there even tho i can afford more i just dont see the reason to if i dont have to.

I'm 39. I pay a little under $200/mo. It's because we live in the NY/NJ metro area and I live in a no-fault state.

Geez. I'm 23 (with a ticket from 2005 and a rear-end collision not at fault) and paid $1500 for the year.

Good luck with the car!

yea but cost of living here in NY is much higher then in NH so everything is always more expensive here. that and the fact that theres just much more crime and accidents im sure here in NY as well. my uncle had 3 cars insured in PA for $600 a year... not full coverage but still, u get my point lol.

Picked up my car last night! DAMN that coral red interior is SEXY! drove to work this morning and loved every minute of it. I'll have some pics up maybe by the weekend since it's dark when I leave for work and dark by the time I get out (12 hour shifts)... Dealer told me not to pass 4500 RPM until I reach 1200 miles so I haven't really pushed the power on her yet, but it's still there I can feel it.

updated with pics. car is basic. i wanted the car more for the performance aspect then the luxury. i had a mercedes C300 that i spent a little extra on for luxury and it really was pointless to me lol. its basic with heated seats. thats about the only option i opted for. i dont need fancy radio, i rather hear my engine, and i dont need navi, i have an iphone


pics arent the greatest quality (iPhone) but enjoy.

Aw no sport package.

If you're concerned about not revving it past 4500 RPM, this might convince you otherwise:

LOL great article. Guess I'll be hitting 6000RPM on the highway today on the way home :-)

and thanks everyone for the comments. I plan on putting aftermarket body kit so I didn't bother with the M-Sport package or nothing because I want a totally different look so it woulda been a waste of money
