Hello! I'm the new boy!

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to say Hello to you all and introduce myself. I am very very new to BMWs entirely and have just purchased my first one. I went for an E92 335i SE in Titanium silver with a few extras.

Ive owned the car for around a week now and used to own a Subaru Impreza P1 ltd ed #0707/1000. I owned the P1 for around 6 years and poured my heart and soul and extended credit card limits to get it up to a spec and condition I was happy with. When it sold it was running 410bhp/390ftlb on a 2.15 stroker built engine. I built the engine for c.550bhp but still had the OE gearbox so had to keep the boost down to 1.6bar so as not to obliterate it! Launching on the lowest setting saw 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, top speed of 181mph and pulled very impressively through the range.

Im looking forward to getting stuck into the forum and researching all I can. I have some immediate questions but I will post up in the right section.

Here are some pics of the P1, and my new 335. Ive included the P1 spec too in case there are any Scooby fans viewing.
