New 335i Owner!! ...almost?!

Tomorrow is the day I do a deal which sees me walk away from my mint facelift E46 M3 Coupe for the last time and into a 2011 335i Touring Auto for the first time... the 335i isn't standard, it's been to Birds and fitted with: Quaife LSD, Non RFTs, Bilstein Suspension and a Hartge ECU giving c360bhp.

Hope I don't look back in a few weeks/months and miss my M3?!


Cheers,
Grant

Congrats on the purchase! Welcome another 335i Touring Member

You'll have to tell us a bit more when you have driven the E91.

Sounds the nuts proper spec car. Don't forget the pics once she's in your custody and trust me the torque the delivery of the 335 you'll love, I drove an E46 M3 it's a great car but you've really got to work at it(nothing wrong with this of course and for some thats the magic) but the 335's gift is more accessible shove and especially when fettled by Birds you can be sure that there's very little that'll touch it point to point

I doubt you will miss your M3 moving to that (unless you are doing lots of track driving).
My last M3 was a 2005 SMG and then got my first 335i and would not want to go back to an E46 M3 again.

your e46 m3 shall not be missed, its not like you have lots of twistie roads to use full benifit of the m3 handling.

straigh roads to have occasional blast is different!! you will love it so much!! the 335i is such a beast!
