9 years on the dark side...From Audi to 335xi

Hello All! I would like to formerly introduce myself into your community. It took me 9 years of poor Audi purchases and a lot of soul searching to finally pull the trigger and join the world of BMW. I was torn with the new S4 and the 335i but could not find one in a 6 speed (low mileage, 14k or less) for the life of me and then it appeared...

Great car!, I know you're use to audi's but why get xdrive on a bmw in florida? I would of also found a sport package car, the steering wheel and seats alone are worth it. Enjoy and get those windows tinted ASAP summer is coming...

Believe it or not...xdrive in Florida is actually quite nice. My quattro vehicles handled the shit rainy roads nicely.

Great color. I just traded mine(e92 335 same color) on an Audi! Why would you get xi in Orlando? Totally different car than e92 with sport suspension, seats etc.

Mods will either be JB4 or Cobb with downpipe.

I came from NH and AWD cars are a must up there. Trust me when I tell you that the xi can be a good thing on Florida roads.

If you go COBB, go downpipes and better FMIC, if you take a look at there tunes, the FMIC is recommended for almost all aggressive or sport applications! that's what i will be doing as well

8 years for me man... '04-'12 during which time period i had 2 '01 S4s, silver and nogaro blue respectively. The nogaro would blow my current car out of the water in a straight line but I still love everything about it.

Thanks for the info. Was at dealer the other day and CA gave word that a bunch of the guys driving N55 in the area had gone JB4 and were pleased. I just like the ease of cobb. Coming from audi where we changed/hid programs thru the cruise control stalk.

loved the B5 S4. Had one myself and was my first and only twin turbo car. So much fun but so much time laying underneath it.

Why wouldnt you do some suspension? Looks like all season tires too? Lots of HP with awd will alleviate that annoying traction control kicking in all the time on the one wheel drive rwd.

No sport seats but it has the sport steering wheel? Aftermarket stuff done to the car already?

Love my xi, suspension and tune, go for it!

I know what you mean, i had a 02 1.8t passat before i got this animal, it was basically a poor mans a4, had the apr flash and loved changing programs with not a care in the world, that's what has me leaning towards the COBB aswell

Suspension will be in the works as well. Car doesnt feel all that sloppy stock but obviously upgrades are in due time. Just need to find a way to make more money or make the gf start hooking.

I think coupes get the sport wheel no matter sport or not, Xi's also dont get the staggered wheels if you get sport.

Nice car and welcome, Woulda got RWD personally though for the little percentage of inclement weather ill take my chances for the better driving dynamics.

All in all your choice and a nice combo, You will enjoy it!
