Took the words out of my mouth. Sitting in the back seat of a M6 makes you appreciate the size of the 3 series back seat. One would think a car that size would be roomier.

Actually, I didn't...

Why would they go to a forum to talk about an outdated car they don't own?

This! When I see one without them it makes me sad.

As someone else has pointed out, when configured similarly the price gap closes and ends up being around $4k.

Me either. There is one on the nav screen and the display below the speedo, but can't say I've ever noticed one in the HUD.

Ha, yea an eternal growth spurt. No one has ever said they ever have to adjust it down. The mirror feels tight, but obviously something is loose as it drops down on its own. I thought it was my...

+1 on checking on the warranty length still left. Even if they used it as a demo, I think it starts the warranty clock. Only reason I know this is because that's what happened to mine. Car had 500...

I felt the same until I actually used the HUD. Now I don't think I'll ever drive another car without it. It may be the best option on the car. I'd take it over heated seats and the kick pop trunk,...

Mine was a demo also, but had 500 miles. They ordered it when the new F30s came out and fully loaded it. Got about $6k off MSRP.

I bet the dealer wouldn't offer me more than $45k on my $57k MSRP...

Wouldn't a floor jack and a jackstand or two do the trick? That's what I used to do on my old honda. My last car before the 335 was a 4x4 truck which I could comfortably slide under without the...

Mine is on pace to tell me to change it at 17k miles. Which will happen in over 2 years. I think I'll see if they'll change it at the 1 year mark even though I'll probably have under 10k miles.

Averaging just a tick under 27 in my 335, don't even notice it. Not sure what all the fuss is about. I assumed I'd hate it when I first got the car with all the negative responses about it,...

And even in economy factors, you're really only looking at 2-3mpg difference. The 335 can easily get 25+ city and 33+ hwy.

Sounds like you just got a bad truck. The fords are notoriously reliable. I came from a 2005 FX4 into my 2012 335. My truck only went to the shop once in 7 years and that was for a bad motor on my...

I'm at 2,900 miles and it's still saying 14,000 miles to next service (and 12/2013). Hasn't budged since I got it over 2 months ago.

Automatic Service notification/intervals

I figured this would be the opposite since you can just hit cruise in comfort and the car should consume the same gas as in eco-pro. I've only used it a few times, so I'm no expert though. It just...

New 335

Just saying hi. I've been shopping around and ended up falling in love with a 2012 Melbourne Red 335i, with all the bells and whistles (many of which I'm still in the process of figuring out)
