e92 BMW 335i  [4.35]
Got my first BMW!

Hi, just wanted to thank everyone on the forum who helped out in making my decision on purchasing my first car.

I test drove a lot of cars to see what I really wanted and I was just about to pull the trigger on an e92 328, until the dealer told me to just "try out" a 335. I was hesitant to drive the 335 since I was in the 328 price range, but I decided to try it out and I fell in love in about a minute. Changed my mind on the spot and picked up a BLACK E92 335, it just felt way different then a 328 and there no looking back!

Looking forward to coming to some meets to see some mods and stuff and get some tips/pointers.

Congrats and welcome. Indeed there's no comparison between a 335i vs. 328.

that's exactly how I felt! I knew the 335 was my car, as soon as I pulled out of the parking lot...

anyways....congrats!
