Talking (E90) Official Crimson Red E90 Thread

Hi everyone! Well, I finally got my 335i sedan last night. I'm pretty impressed with it. I'll spare everyone another review saying the same thing over and over, but I will say that I'm coming from a 2003.5 M3 and I'm very impressed with how it compares. Handling is not as good and the throttle is not as responsive, but other than that, I really don't miss the M3 to much anymore. I'm not sure I've heard anyone mention the size of the front brake calipers, but damn they're big!!!!

Great looking car, congrats, but how the hell did you get your car before my E92 335i with NAV that I ordered 8/4, scheduled to come off the boat 10/5.

dkpiRI,

Not sure how I got mine sooner. I think that I ordered back in July, but I can't remember back that far now. Either way it was the first day that they were taking orders for the sedan that I got my order in. Good luck with yours!

Very nice. I have the same interior combo, with AW on order. I can't wait to get mine.

I think some of the black line tail lights would look great on your car....

I used to have an electric red '99 328i. The color is much more of a red then the electric red which I thought was very orange. I traded an Imola Red M3 and I think the color is almost identical, just a little lighter maybe.

That's actually going to be my first upgrade. Just need to find a good price on them. The dealer wanted $250 which I thought was crazy. I've seen them before for around $150 I think. Waiting for my CCA rebate check before I order any toys to keep my wife happy.

Bmwsloy, You've got a very sharp looking E90 !
My suggestion for your second mod would be to exchange your stock shifter for the shorter "sport shifter". It makes a big difference in the feel and throw of shifting.
Your car would look even better if you swapped those 162s for the new 189s that I have on my coupe. They would look fabulous on your new machine.
