You suspect?

I ordered a new 335is with the 6MT after I found out that replacing a DCT would cost north of $12,000 plus labor. And at the time the reliability of the DCT was unproven.

M3 Rear bushings with Koni FSDs

Cal,

I'm about to install Koni FSDs on my 2011 335is (the dealer and my independent tells me that my rear shocks are weak even though I only have 21000 miles on the car).

I put these tires on my 2011 335is coupe last month. They have about 800 miles on them to date. I like them a lot. My only gripe is that with the windows open they seem a bit noisy.
