I agree, my E92 has the same steering wheel, and I don't have the sports package. I'm going to add aftermarket staggered wheels and summer tires, and keep the stock wheels for winter. I had the staggered setup on my 330i ZHP and I miss the extra grip and handling you get from the wider rears.

BTW, Nice car I love the red leather!

Awesome car. I was looking at the same color scheme when I was looking at the 335i. When your ready for that Cobb AP and downpipes let us know. We have some tax season sales going on and I can hook you up pretty well .

I have a e92 328i xDrive with the sport package 18's. They are staggered for sure 8" in the front 8.5" in the back from the dealer. Also had an audi before they are both great cars.

The only AWD I had was the S4 in Florida and with Florida rains that create rivers on the streets in no time, the S4 was a great thing. While E9x's were crawling at 15 mph along with Buicks and other crap, I was cruising at 50 mph and did not feel anything... In the summer, it is a every-day event...

Tune is first on the list because I know how much the factory holds FI cars back. Then DP then suspension.

I love the comments on xdrive in Florida. Ill just change my signature to Vermont Hills to ease the pain for some of you.

You should because the rwd car is so much more fun and you really have no need for awd down there. To each his own.

Def no need for AWD in Florida, Rain is no reason for AWD with all the traction control nannies cars have today.

Hell I didnt want it in NJ for the 3-5 days a year it snows but again its your car
not ours and a fine car at that.. You will enjoy it either way!
