Newbie: Country Boy's First BMW.

Hey ya'll!

I hope this is the right forum to be posting in, and if not, I apologize in advance. I just wanted to make my first post on this site after browsing for a few days. I've long since wanted to own a BMW but haven't been financially able to until recently. As a relatively young guy (23) I'm having a tough time adjusting to scornful stares of others when I cruise around in this beauty...but this car is all mine and I plan on caring for it as if it were a child. I'm not going to bombard you all with a myriad of photos...I'm sure you've all seen a stock 335I, so I'll just post one.

Here she is:


2008 335I in Montego Blue. CPO w/ gold warranty til 100k (52k on the clock now).

PS: Can anyone tell me if these wheels come standard? I haven't seen too many others with this wheelset.

Thanks for lookin!

And thank you!

That explains a lot!

I wonder why the dealer/previous owner would put those wheels on it. I'm actually quite fond of the styling myself. I really have no intention of modding this car. I've done that to every car I've owned since I was 16 and each time I just lost money and encountered problems. I don't need the headache anymore...I'm happy with it for now.

I'd like to find a bluetooth solution however...That's the only part that really bothers me. Especially in PA where talking while driving is now illegal.

I was thinking of putting a rifle rack in the rear window. Haha.

PS: The flip out accessory compartment on the drivers door fits my Glock 36 perfectly. Some things never change.

understandable... you should consider putting black kidney grilles on though.. it really makes the car look better, but still very subtle. unless you're into the whole chrome thing. It's one thing that i think every 3 series should have

i used the bluetooth in my old car, but for some reason i haven't ever set it up in my new car. incidentally i got pulled over for talking on my phone on my way to work THIS MORNING no lie lol

i know your not looking to mod, but you might want to consider black grills, black vinyl the window trim, and color match the amber markers on your front bumper, you wouldnt be happier really changes the look of your car!
