And the wait for my new 335i begins . . .

My 2011 335d lease was up on December 2014. My local CA offered me a lease 'pull ahead' program where up to six months of payments on your old lease would be waived. Decided to stick with the 3 series and go for a fully-loaded 2014 335i. Build date: 4/27/14

Estoril Blue/Coral Red Leather
ZCW, ZDA, ZDB, ZDH, ZPP, ZTP, M Sport, Sports Transmission, Rear Shades, Active Cruise Control, HK Sound

Will post pics when it arrives, can't wait!

Congrats on the order! I think you'll be very happy with the car.

My wait was two months exactly.....2/7 to 4/7. I hope it goes quick for you because it didn't for me but in the end it is very worth it!

I didn't have your patience. Went into the dealer last week to order a 335i, and got a great deal on an on-the-floor model. Black/black, M-Sport, MPE, M Sport Brakes, all the goodies. Drove it home last Thursday.

I know this won't make it any easier, but I'm just blown away at how tight and good the new F30 335i is. We had 3 E90s, all 335i models, and the new F30 is just something special beyond the fantastic E90s. You're going to love this model, congrats again.

I definitely hear you. For my last lease, I drove the 2011 335d off the lot. Although I've enjoyed it immensely, I did feel some regret about leaving off some features that I wanted (ACC, HUD) which are typically not present on cars on the lot.

+1. The 335i we bought was well optioned, indeed. Full tech package (HUD), MPE, M brakes, CF spoiler, 19" 403 wheels, black grill, Winter, etc. Really, the only thing it didn't have I would have ordered was adaptive suspension. Other than that, all the options I was looking to get.

I do hope the wait goes quickly. Congrats again!

I know what you're talking about. This is the most fun I have in all my BMW's! Faster than I thought for sure. Even hangs with my wife's 550xi!! Lighter car for sure but it can absolutely fly when I stomp on it. Handling is amazing with DHP. Just love it!

I've only had my car for 22 hours so my opinion is probably invalid but agree, it has exceeded all expectations and is by far the best all around car I've ever had the privilege of driving. I flirted with ordering a 550i as well but in the end I'm glad I went this route.

For a performance oriented 335 buyer I think DHP and M-Sport brakes are "must-haves".

It's refreshing to see an all positive post on here instead of the usual...... A 335i is in my near future and I'm looking forward to it as well. Cheers!

That's a nice looking 335i! Love that estoril blue.

Is that East Bay BMW by any chance? I am going there tomorrow to negotiate my lease with Blair.
