Finally, I have found another 335d!

Here it is parked next to mine, it is a 2009 Barbera Red.

Don't they look happy together?

Sam, the 'artsy' ones were taken by a professional photographer friend of mine. To fess up, I just did the boring shots below.

The only thing boring about a 335D is having to drive something else!

Actually my friend with the 2009 Red Barbera wants to trade it for a new M3. He tried out my Black Sport/Premium and said he could really feel the difference in the handling between the standard 3 series and the sport. I did not test his out, what's the point of that?

I was in Panama two weeks ago and was picked up in a standard gas 3 series over there. I think it had a 2.0liter engine. Definitely not impressed.

I'm waiting for something to come along like a 4.0 liter V-8 Diesel or even soemthing like the V-10 Bi-Turbo Diesel that Touareg had at one time. Only with a badge on it!

There's a 345hp tri-turbo variant of the N57 next year (X5 only, I think?), but I doubt that'll make it over here. My dealer told me it was the 265-280hp N57-powered 535d (or 530d) coming over late 2010 to the U.S. and early 2011 to Canada.

M-Sport content

Guys, thanks for the compliments but let me clarify.

The M-Sport package adds the following:

Suspension mods like the regular sport package
Sport seats, shadowline exterior trim like the regular sport package
M-Sport only steering wheel (no heat avail but I love it)
More aggressive front bumper, side rocker panels & rear bumper (lower section is gray so choice of paint color will affect how each person feels about the rear look)
rear park distance control included in the package
Different wheels (193M) 18" shod with larger rear tires (255/35/18) than front (225/40/18)
Anthracite headliner (black) this look may affect how it melds with interior upholstery color
Package allows for choice of glacier aluminum trim which I liked and preferred over the brushed aluminum, not applicable to my car but some exterior color options are only available with M-Sport package and some colors are not permitted
aluminum sill plates are standard

The carbon fiber trunk spoiler, is a BMW aftermarket part that I got from Tischer
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

I like the subtle aspect of the clear coated carbon fiber against the black sapphire metallic paint. I have also changed the stock chrome kidney grill inserts for black slats inside a carbon fiber surround to tie it all together.

Prior to the 2011 MY, when looking I was considering the sport package, but when I saw that BMW was offering the diesel fans the opportunity to add the even more sporting (aggressive styling) aspects offered M-Sport I felt that offered additions that would complement the terrific performance of the 335d's torque perfectly. Everyone who I've taken for a ride is totally BLOWN away! I'm keeping an eye on Stugot's experience with the tuning chip options to enhance that aspect further

Cheers and happy motoring

New pics after getting a great detail job (multi-step starting with claybar) as well as installation of clear bra for the front, mirrors and A pillar by Raja. Anyone in the DC area should investigate his services also a shot of the new pedal covers from Jlevi

paint protection is good investment. I got mine done in $650 and 35% tints $250.

Arborwick,

Raja is pretty active in the local club and has done many cars before mine for club members including a Lambo this month. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=417943

He works out of his home in Herndon, in terms of cost it will depend on what areas you want to cover/protect. I did the front bumper, he purchases pre cut templates for areas like that. I also had the A pillar, headlights and side mirrors done. Many people also opt for partial or full hood as well as front quarter panels, rocker panels.

You can PM me for his phone and email if you need it.

Chip, nice ride!

Does your X have an M-sport package, or is that read diffuser stock for xDrive35d's?

Cheers
