Pulled the trigger

After a year of searching, test driving, and reading endless threads on here, I finally purchased a 2011 335i with xDrive. Premium package, cold weather package, automatic, Jet Black with Saddle Brown interior. Miles, 17,400. I negotiated for the dealer to add CPO which I'm thrilled with. A little peace of mind. Pick it up Friday it looks like. Cannot wait. I appreciate all of the knowledge I gained on this site and want to thank everyone for the education.

Nice pickup and good call on getting CPO. Hope you have good weather to enjoy your car this weekend. I'm sure the waiting is tough.

Congrats! I just got my 2009 335xi 2 months ago and haven't been able to sit still. I just need to drive somewhere for no reason. But, yes, be careful of your speed... "honestly Officer, it was the car, not me".

Just bought a '10 e92 335 as well

Got pulled over .... I was swearing left and right as I pulled over, I wasn't speeding (doing like 67 in a 60).

Cop walked up...."just checking you out...you're good".

Seriously?

tinted windows and the mirror that adjusts at night.....I can't make out the cops in my rear view mirror now...I was really good at that in my none tinted window/auto mirror dimming car before!

What exactly then is your definition of speeding? Seriously, don't you think that cop was giving you a head's up? They rarely make vehicle stops to make small talk.

Bet there was a crime involving a car like yours and he just wanted to check you weren't that car.

I agree tints+ auto dim mirror = not able to detect which cars are cops

I cannot tell you happy I am with this car. I've always wanted a BMW and this car is beyond my expectations. I have never had a car with steering or the feel of this car. The power is unbelievable and the little luxury items are great. I really like the performance aspect and cannot imagine driving anything else. Just plain fun!!!
