This car is 90% perfect, adding a LSD then you get 100% of a CAR.

Limited slip differential. If one rear wheel starts to spin, a 3-series (non M) will just lose usable power because all the engine torque will go towards that spinning wheel. Either that or the electronic nannies will kick in and kill engine power/apply brakes. A car with an LSD will transfer some of that torque from the spinning wheel to the non-spinning wheel.

Useful in corners.

Yep. Audi def. has the upper hand with their torsen setup (can't remember the full name). Nothing but great reviews and works well on top of their AWD systems.

I think LSD would have been the icing on the cake - still a mystery why they [BMW Performance] doesn't even offer an LSD option in their parts book for these things...

Fog lights deleted for additional engine cooling. Bimmerfile tells:

"The increased power and torque naturally place higher loads on the engine componentry, so a number of items, including the cooling system of the 335is, have been upgraded accordingly. An additional radiator has been added behind the left-side front air intake, along with a more powerful electric cooling fan. An oil cooler is fitted opposite the second radiator, on the right side. The front fascia of each model has been shaped with large openings to allow improved air flow to the coolers, and special emphasis was placed on the 335is Coupe’s higher probability of being used for spirited driving. As a result, the 335is Coupe has traded the Convertible’s foglights for the largest possible air openings, which help result in a substantial increase in effective cooling capacity over the original BMW 335i Coupe. These measures were taken specifically to ensure that the 335is will provide constant, reliable power under even the harshest driving circumstances. Engine mounts have also been replaced with stiffer units to help minimize deflection under very high G-loads."

Assuming that it is the same transmission that has been available in other markets in the 335i for some time, it is indeed the same one that is used in the M3 as well.

Duh! I totally forgot they have DCT in Europe! I'm stoked to try out one of these cars.

And to the cooling/fog light thing - if people are going to take one of these to the track, it's likely an E92, not the E93 which is why the coupe losses the fog lights (according to that article).

The six or seven colors that are available for the M-sport option on the regular cars.

Lemans Blue ( My choice, so I did not pay much attention to the others)
White
Grey
Sapphire Black
Crimson Red (not a M-sport color, but DEFINITELY on the list)
Silver

Blue water ( I do not remember seeing this in the dealer's order screen)

Could you order any interior trim, or were you stuck with the textured aluminum one?

I'm kind of surprised they did not offer Melbourne instead, as found on the Z4 35is.
