Most of you probably won't, but if you ever feel the need for more power...a simple flash will give you between 50-100whp...depending on what company software you go with (i.e. Dinan, OE Tuning, etc). Just food for thought.
+1 to some the 35i might even be a little "too" aggressive/sporty insert whatever adjective you like. It's loud at times (cold start), makes turbo noises that are clearly heard, launches like a small block V8, etc., etc,, still waiting for the DINAN release not like it needs it though.
