Less than 10 weeks and my hands are on the wheel of a 335is.

Everyone posts such shorts posts, put some effort in.

I appreciate all BMW's and because an M3 is an M3 does mean I will buy one. If you buy an M3 for image, its all for the wrong reasons. I could afford a dozen 6 series cars but there is something about the new 335is that has an allure probably because its a nod to the 1980's E30 tuning days....which is why I ordered my 335is with a white exterior and red and black interior...white and red, together...clearly 80's colors.

I was going to buy a BMW two years ago...I am glad I waited, my 335is is being built the first week of May. Fully loaded, sunroof, kept the 18" rims (I like the style), white exterior, red interior.

I don't really care about all the badging, so there is one on the speedometer and one on the passenger dash, how are two badges too much? And three on the outside as opposed to just one on the front, again three is not really that much! Most tuners take off all badges, personally I like to add some personal individuality to the car but I like how it comes out of the factory.

hey, how's the gas mileage on the S4. i heard it's supposed to be pretty good. I was shocked and pleased to find that my new 335i really does get better mileage than the 135i despite being 200lbs heavier and having a slightly higher 6th gear ratio (.87 vs .85). I guess aerodynamics make a huge difference.

haha you have a point but im looking at it from a enthusiasts point of view not mass marketing. this is the car you want to build up if youre looking at the 335.engine cooling is EVERYTHING no matter the speed. i just hate the head lights though, no offense.
