Arrow Post a picture of your diesel powered BMW!

For the sanctity of this thread, and not reposting my pictures from another thread that I started, I'm just gonna link that thread.

Hmm - link to a thread of pics of YOUR car? Why not a more neutral thread? Or do you want everyone to comment on yours again?

To the OP - any pics of yours?

Because it's silly to post the same pics twice in the same forum, that's why. I'm not the one that thought it was a good idea to make a sticky for car pics when there are already threads containing them. WTF do I care if people comment on my car? If they want to, they can. If not, they can look at the 40 or so pics I posted (rather than doing it again here), and enjoy them.

And yes, since this thread is posting pics about each owner's diesel car, it *is* pics to my car...since that's what the thread requests.

Now, provide something constructive to the thread, like pics of your car, like the OP asked, instead of harassing me.

No diesel for me yet, I just wanted to get one of these threads going so everyone can share their pictures instead of starting a new thread every time a new member gets a new BMW.

Hi, I have a white 2011 335d. I'm considering getting tinted windows. What brand did you put on, and how has it worked for you?

I'm also considering getting paint protection. What did you use & why? What others did you consider, and why did you decide against them?

Thanks so much!

I didnt realize you pointed it to me(old screen name). I got 3M tints and paint protection. It cost be about $800 in total. I read lot of online reviews which favored 3M. After 3.5yrs I feel like getting new tints. It doesnt feel as effective as it was when I got them installed.
Paint protection was a good investment. In 2 months I drove without it I had 2 paint chips due to debris on road and since then not a single one. This is one of disadvantages of Black car even a small chip is soo visible. Installer said based on maintenance film might turn yellowish but so far it looks good and difficult to notice.
I am planning to get car professionally detailed next month. I will put some updated photos then.

Thanks for the info.

What kind of paint protection did you use? Why are you replacing it now? Is it coming off or looking bad, like the tint?

Thanks,

bill

I wish we had that lovely 335d Estate / Touring / Sportwagon -- whatever you want to call it, here in the States. Apparently, we need something much more imposing. Ugh.

In addition to my 335d Sedan / Saloon, I have a VW Jetta TDI Sportwagen (aka VW Golf Estate) -- which I find economical, fun and useful. I'd consider replacing the VW with a BMW 335d wagon if it were an option. We can't even get a Passat Estate here. Grrr.

Here's my 335d.

I'm a big fan of the 3 series touring. It'd be dream to get one in diesel. I had a e46 wagon I loved.

Great pics, btw
