I have an M Sport with DHP and would definitely get it again. The F3x has 2 modes, 'Comfort' (when DDC is set to Eco Pro or Comfort) and 'Sport' (DDC is set to Sport or Sport Plus). In Sport, I...

I believe the resonators are tuned differently on the E92, so even with a secondary cat mod it would probably not sound the same. You can also try unplugging the actuator for the flap that closes...

July programs are crap, but I locked for a MY14 335i to avoid further screwing if August is worse.

+1

The configurator didn't let you order M Sport brakes on the '14 M Sport line 435i (they finally fixed it). :throw:

According to my CA, the dealer doesn't have any available allocations. He may also be assuming that I'm not willing to pay anything near MSRP, as I've bought several cars from him at ED invoice +...

The car isn't "totaled" as it probably doesn't have any collision coverage.

I hadn't either, and I didn't receive it on my prior lease in 2010 despite having a similar score at the time. I'm hoping the experts can shed some light.

I'd still go 335i all the way - better brakes, better sound, and still more powerful with headroom available. The 4-cylinder just doesn't interest me. In any event, I'll be getting an F32 coupe in...

The F30 335i not only has larger rotors but also larger fixed calipers versus the sliding ones on the 328i. This wasn't the case on the E9x (the '35 just had larger rotors), so I'd expect the...

Mossman is right. Since those lights illuminate the front corners, it helps you see that pothole/pole/child you're about to swing the front end into when backing up.

Agreed, though comparably-equipped a 335i coupe is only about $1500-1800 more than a 335i sedan (the $3000 difference in base price is partly due to more standard equipment on a 335i coupe). That...

HP is actually the same at 320, it's the torque that's different - 332 lb/ft for the AT and 317 lb/ft for the MT.

Personally I still think it's worth it. I had my car for a week in Germany...
