Mein Auto: BMW 330CI Convertible
Information about 335i coupes

Hi, i'm new to Bimmerfest, i currently have a BMW 330ci convertible and am going to buy a 2007-2011 BMW 335i coupe/convertible. what can i expect in terms of performance difference? i find my bimmer a tad slow and a bit behind in today's technology. regarding the N54/N55 engines in the 335i's which one is more reliable and which one would be easier to get the most performance at a budget. thank

OK....here`s the long and the short of it:

The E46 *IS* "older technology", but it`s far more user/DIY-friendly (AND, it has a dipstick !), and has an edge as far as reliability and longevity go. Downside for the E46: unless you`re willing to invest major bucks in a supercharger system ($7-10,000 to do it the right way), there is no more (appreciable) HP to be squeezed from the 3-liter.

The 335, OTOH, can be enhanced by products like the Juice Box JB IV, which will provide a nice kick in the pants when you sting it....
