Mein Auto: 335i
Break-in fun


Picked up my 335 coupe yesterday. Now 300kms later, can't wipe the smile
off my face! I have spent 2 afternoons cruising country roads so I can
vary the rpm constantly. Even gentle exceleration up to 4400 rpm elicits
an incredible sense of power and sure-footedness.

To think that the torque band runs up to 5800rpm or so is
awe inspiring to say the least. much more to explore with this
beauty.
Great forum!
Cheers

Mein Auto: 2009 328i Coupe
Months later, with my lowly 328i, I still marvel... I still look forward to every drive. The world has compressed... destinations arrive too quickly...

'just love my car.

I am still glad I didn't test drive the 335i...I am sure I just couldn't have bought the 328i after I test drove the 300 ft-lbs monster. And since it was outside my realm of financial means, why hurt myself?

Still, love my car.

Have fun, groundeffect, you'll be smiling more and more every day!

I hate new cars because of the break in period. Of course, the thrill of the new car offsets the humbug of break in. I also don't like new cars because I feel I have to drive it 2 years to wear out the tires somewhat before I can change the tires. At year 2, I really like a new car.

I also love driving 335i's. I'm used to a modded E36 M3, so naturally the E90/92 platform feels like a cruise ship on school bus suspension to me, but when I look past that the N54 is freak nasty sex power.

yep - that was my mistake - I drove a 335 and then a 328 and a CLK350 - all nice cars, but once you have been intoxicated, nothing else will do....

the 328i is a beautiful ride. no need to torture yourself. most mortals don't get the opportunity to know 335i's real potential anyway
