Unhappy Goodbye E92 335i...

Sadly had to say bye to my first ever BMW, the E92 335i. Had it just over two years. Loved it every single day and time I drove it. And the first ever Euro trip was with him.



But I guess I can't be too sad considering his replacement is a ....
Can you guess?

Bingo!

Was going for 4 doors, but don't really like the back (personal preference), so had to be a coupe again.

Only just got it this afternoon, spend ages with paper work insurance stuff.
Raining all day but still went out for a slow drive for about an hour.
Just home to spread the news. Haha

Just for comparison sake again...

noice!

Hoping to make a similar switch (or addition) myself.
Keep the non-M as my daily, and the M as my weekender.

That looks great, so much more presence than the 335i.

That M3 needs fuel !!!! - you better get used to seeing that little symbol on the dash but it has to be worth it.

Can't afford 2 cars man!
Was going for practical and a shape change but I'm going to be selfish and treat myself instead. Just have to leave one behind I guess. Mwahahha...

Also, went for a relatively cosy drive.

335i manages 23.7mpg daily traffic jam style driving.
Today similar conditions in the new M3 - managed 19mpg.

Not too bad!

I still really liked the 335i. Very smooth and discreet, and I liked those wheels! Only managed 22.7mpg normal driving, quite use to the petrol station by now. The M3 managed 19mpg this morning to work.

Still can't believe I've got it! Wanted so so long.

She's got a 57 plate on and done 42k, but inside out very good condition. The steering wheel is like new! And all the leather is still very very nice. And I'm very picky about stuff.

Only noticed this morning as well that the back windows are tinted! Completely haven't sunk in yet.

I only just realised what you meant. You guys must be good at "spot the random difference stuff in the background" game.

Lovely car!!!....another 335i owner moving to the M!!!....

why do you refer to your 335i as a "he"....

and your m3 as a "she"?

Lovely car in the best colour for it. IMO

It is silverstone II right?

Came very close to buying one just the same before picking up the c2s. The fuel bill is easily justified by the soundtrack in my view!

I don't know why I feel like calling him 335i and her M3. Just feels right to me.

I managed 26.4mpg driving on the motorway the other. I'm quite happy with that.
