Wow that sounds amazing, I cant wait to hear the actual figures.:rocks: . As quick as a CSL - that is quick!!!

I ordered my E91 335D today, and like stated above, am already looking forward to remap time.

I like the way, when the ECU lid is open, there is a cup of water only inches away!!!!!!, you wouldnt want to knock that over

Squeezebm, he's already thinking about stocking up on portable freezers, you may want to have a word with him ......lol


OliH: E91 335D + re-map, perfect stealth machine. Nobody would even imagine what the wagon is capable off until they get blown away. No loud exhausts or revvy engines, just 100% stealth power!

Wouldn't you rather start with the 335i and modify from there?


I know I'll probably be flamed for asking these questions, but really, why would an enthusiast start with a compromised driver's car?

adc, I take it you have not driven one of these, the 680nm or torque is what makes this car.

I did 40k miles in my remapped 535d and never had a single problem with my gearbox even holding back which it does when it overheats.

You guys make me die with your 'gotta be a stick' nonsense, I would take the step over the manual everytime with the 335i/d, far more enjoyable.


I do agree that I would personally prefer the 335i and that is what I bought, but I tell you now, in coupe form the 335i is going to loose shed loads of value when the M3 comes out and it is no longer the top model, where as the 335d will hold its value well as everyone thinks of diesels as 40mpg cars, and when you are paying over $8 gallon mpg starts to become a concern.

It may be a big number, but it's spread over a much narrower rev range, which in turn means the gearing must be long, which in turn means the torque to the wheels in gear is not that different from a 335i/535i.

Which in turn explains why the 0-60, 1/4 mile, track times are lower for stock 335i vs. 335d, and why modifying the 335d only makes it about as fast as the 335i.

I could be wrong of course, but I'd like to see opinions to the contrary supported by factual evidence.

Good for you. By his own admission, the OP seems to have some tranny issues.

I hope I don't make you die, it's not my intention. But claiming an automatic tranny is more enjoyable, it has got to be just a personal preference, and one that perhaps is not shared by the vast mojority of those who label themselves driving enthusiasts.

In the end, it's whatever floats your boat. Me personally, I would never buy an automatic car for myself. Therefore 335d/535d are excluded.

I part exchanged my 6MT E46 M3 for the 335D. The manual gearbox was brilliant for me but it is now a 'fun-robbing' option. I got tired of it. I prefer not to use the clutch anymore, even on my multiple track day outings and Nurburgring trips. It's my new personal preference.

As for the automatic transmission overheating, probably but only time will tell. I guess experimenting is part of the enjoyable side of tuning. If it doesn't work, I'll just put it back to stock. However, it's working brilliantly now, and at least I am willing to try it out so other people will know.

I chose the 335D because it's something different, something I haven't owned before, a 'performance' diesel car. It just floats my boat this moment in time. If I get bored of it, I'll sell on and get an E92 M3, or an E46 CSL, a 335i or switch camp to Porsche with their brilliant GT3s. All depends on what I like at a specific time. Right now I'm enjoying myself with the D, so it will stay.

I am an enthusiast, but more a hobbyist intriqued by the latest gadgets. I'm never a purist, but I understand where you're coming from.

Again it's subjective. For me, it's no problems at all, I ran round London in a E46 M3 dropped on TEIN coilovers with solid bushes for 3 years. This set up is a lot more 'comfortable'. However, if you find even the stock Sport suspension on the harsh side, you'll hate it.

Some good points, and I agree with you always buy what you like, I do.

The 'stick' comment was just something that makes us laugh in the UK, not meant as a serious dig, just light hearted banter.
I had a CSL until 2 months ago and that had SMG, and I still got people tell me that wasn't a real drivers transmission, if it isn't a manual it isn't a real gearbox. Sorry I just don't agree with that at all.
I can drive better with the step, one less thing to think about, I took a few manual 335i's out and just prefered it, as you say personal preference.
The manual is fine, but these are luxury German autobahn mile munchers we are talking about here, now a GT3 I would always buy in manual guise, until the DSG arrives of course.

Test drove the 335d yesterday - it certainly is fast. Still couldn't get to grips with the auto though. As I'd been ragging it with full throttle the gearbox automatically adjusts its revs etc so it keeps the revs high. Found this a little disconcerting as I wasn't controlling the revs. If it were a manual I would have changed down. (I did change down eventually by pushing the flappy paddle thing.) Suppose it just takes getting used to. 335i test drive next (if the dealer can source one!!)

Where do you live? Just broke mine in a week ago.....I'm near huntingdon. I'm tired of seeing all of these people wanting a 335i test drive, and unable to receive. I'm going to offer one good deed to someone, and hook a bro up.

With fuel at $2-3 a gallon does it really matter?? do you really need to save 5mpg over the 335i?
