Mein Auto: 335i
Picked up a 335i

About this time last month I bought a 2007 335i Sedan. Black/Beige. 19,800 miles with extended warranty though June of 2015. It has the Premium package and Sport package and what must be the chrome package; factory chrome 18s and chrome grill mustache.

The guy took crazy-good care of the car. He had an old-school vinyl bra on the front, so it is like a new car. There is wax in a few places wax should not be, but that's better than no wax and all. He had floor mats on his floor mats to keep his floor mats clean.

Picked it up in Arizona and drove it back home to Denver. Got between 31 and 33.6mpg. Not too shabby.

All-in-all, I am very excited about this car.

LOL, I laughed so hard at this. That's how you know this car is serious business. When the floormats have floormats.

I bought the car off the "Bay" from an individual. The car had such low miles and was described as being in perfect condition I had to be skeptical. I fully expected a huge hole in the side of the car not shown in pictures. After lengthy emails of query and response, there just came a point I had to trust the goodness of my fellow. I flew to AZ to collect the car. It was indeed in top shape and missing any body panel voids.

When I called my wife, I blathered on like a drunken fool describing the condition of the car. When I explained the floor mat, floor mats, she understood.

Right on. Looks really nice man. Some interior shots? Not a big fan of the chrome wheels, but then again I'm not a big fan of "shiny stuff". That black is very bad ass.

Two floor mats?

How can you be in two places at once when you're nowhere at all?


P.S.

Good luck with the new ride and welcome to The 'Fest.

Thanks. I was on the fence with the chrome, but when I saw the car, they really seemed to fit. Let's call it my rebellion against everything matte black and "murdered out." Everybody does black now, but really, who does chrome? Just those really cool dudes who want to be different...and Mexicans...and old guys with hot rods. All the cool dudes in my demographic roll black wheels. I've already done black wheels and moved on. That puts me at the cutting edge of cool. I'm a trend setter. Viva la chrome! :-)

Any dirt you see was lovingly installed by my dirty driving shoes.

That's pristine as hell, amazing looking. Almost as if no one ever drove it. You step on the gas yet?

Thanks, I got lucky.

Just once and I almost cried. I wasn't ready. It was a rolling blast from 20-90ish. My friend said he was afraid to grab anything because he didn't want to slime it up with hand sweat.

Very nice choices guys. Of course I'm a little partial to the two door version, but you've got one gorgeous looking family sedan there Nick!

Nice find, Nick! Welcome to the 'fest.

BTW: Like your wife, I also completely understand the floormats. It always does my heart good to see others out there who take "crazy-good" care of their Bimmers.

Good luck with it and hope it gives you much driving pleasure.

I have been doing the "Dual Floor Mat" thing since I got the car, I have a set of rubber mats over carpet mats.

Hello Nick...Congrats on the awesome car find. You scored big time on your new ride. Hey, seeing you are from Denver and all - are the residents of Denver over the craziness surrounding your airport, or is it still a point of conversation??? Just curious, D
