It also comes with DCT as standard and the sports suspension.

Also if you want to be particular it has grey instrument dials with 35is written on them.

It is said that the BMW has slightly underrated the 35is power. I have seen a dyno somewhere. I was suprised that it 'only' produces 340 odd HP given that it runs around 14psi on overboost.
Both 35i and 35is have about 30 more HP and Torque than BMW claims, and it has been proven.
