Before the crank shaft goes, a lot of other things will blow up first...

I think the best 335i is the one driving and not the one standing at the dealer...

We are 0,1 % of people that are in search for max performance! For all the rest, the change from N54 to N55 was a step forward!!!
BEFORE: 130i N52 (2006-2011)
NOW: 335xi N55 (2011- )
