Very nice, don't Autovogue start with a SE model and then fit their body kit? looking forwards to seeing the BBS's fitted, the 20's look a bit overkill IMHO, love the colour.

Nice one Jules

Have you got quad pipes on it then?

How are you finding German engineering after your previous experiences?

That's a "bulky" body kit from AutoVogue. Car looks nice though and unique.

How's insurance...killer ain't it...

The exhaust is standard, with quad pipes on the back, with the valves removed. I was very suprised at the sound. Sounds aftermarket!

Insurance is a bit of a bastard, But this is what you get for having nice toys!

My last car was an MR2 turbo (96). which was running about 300hp. The BM is as quick, i think. but of course the 335 is alot more comfortable, and quieter!

BBS wheels should be here by the end of the month. Ive gone for 19's though as the 20's were just a bit too big

Also the car is on a 56 plate. and it was registered in the latter part of 2006.

Lovely motor mate.

20 years old and in a 335i, alright for some

By the sounds of it you're used to have a car with a decent amount of power (a friend of mine has a Mk 2 MR2 running about 280bhp I think). Take it easy though and I am sure you will have a fine time!!

Agree with my Right Honourable Friend above. Not a fan of the wheels but the rest of the car looks mint. What toys/options does it have? I think I remember seeing a similar one on Autotrader a while ago (few months).

That's a fine looking ride

I know that they tinkle with the engine on the 335 Denzil versions at autovogue, has yours been modded?

How's the insurance? I remember paying 2000 when I was 20 on an Astra GTE 16v in 1993

I think it was launched to the public in Oct 06, about a month after I picked up my 330i. Anything 06 will be a press car I guess?
