It has been odd to go from an R32 (5000 cars nationwide) to the 335 haha. I see my exact car two or three times a week.

There are a ton of owners around, mainly because there are tons of 30 something with money and no kids up here

I have a few parts on the way including an M5 DCT knob, M Wheel trim and if I let myself an M wheel. I am still on the hunt for suspension, wheels and a Cobb AP. Also keeping an eye out for either an M tech or M3 rep front bumper.

Ya, I bet. I never thought I would own a BMW but I enjoy mine so far. Do you still have the R32?? I would love to see it. I am a huge Nissan guy. I still have dreams of owning an R32 or doing a S15 bulid. Hard to find manual 200sx that people arent asking ridiculous money for. Either way welcome. I am pretty new to this forum as well.

So you are the new owner of that SG 335i on the corner. I saw your car as well as the R32 in the garage. I live on Cardin and drive a JB 335i. Stop me and say Hi next time you see me driving by.

Damn small world! That's me and I have seen you before as well, were you just driving around earlier? My buddy was here taking a small dent out of the door (he does PDR). I will by all means say hello! There is also a woman who drives an M coupe near you as well.

Yep, that's me. I went home for lunch today. On my way back to work I saw your car on the driveway with the hood popped up. I tried to stop and say hi but I did not see you around.

The M coupe lady just moved in to the neighborhood coupe months ago.

See you around.

It was nice chatting with you. Since we live in the same neighborhood, I'm sure we will bump into each other from time to time and we can talk about cars all day long

I go sometimes to Dave and Busters because it is so close. Main Event down 183 is pretty cool too.

Relatively so...I've been in for regular service and warranty stuff with aftermarket oil cooler, intercooler, exhaust, intake and never had any issues. I had my Dinan S2 and S3 software updates installed there and the two times that my BMW software had to be reflashed, they reflashed my Dinan at no additional charge.

As long as whatever you have isn't pushing boost past 15 PSI, they are pretty good about not giving you grief. A fellow club member has a 1M with Cobb and they haven't seemed to mind as long as he adheres to the aforementioned boost limit.

Hey all,

Two random questions for the locals:

1. Anyone have any stock wheels with tires that they're looking to sell?
2. Anyone looking to buy or know anyone looking to buy an e92 335?

Let me know!

NICE! What was the extent of that retrofit? Do you now shift according to the pattern on the DCT knob or does it still move only forward and back like the regular shifter? If the latter, it doesn't look like there would be a way to avoid accidental shifts (out of Park, from Neutral into Reverse, etc) since there's no release button to hold.
