New to me 07 335i sedan !!!

Just picked up a 2007 335i on Saturday. The smile has still not come off my face.
She makes tons of power. So happy I went E90 over E60. In the end the couple of inches of rear leg room and trunk space just didn't matter. The E90 is just that much more to drive. Going to see how she acts over the spring and summer before I start the Mods. Thinking aFe intake, pulley kit, and Juice Box 4.

Hey there's no shame in that... I'm a relative noob also, just joined up in December. I find that creeping on the forums a lot really helps out as far as navigating. Looking forward to the photos. Cheers.

Coming from a 95 318is I'm in total love with her. I had a E39 before totaled. That car I loved. The E36 I had a serious love hate relationship with. I will def be in Aberdeen this July for Bimmerfest East this year.

I'm sorry to hear about your totaled baby! I know the feeling though, when I first test drove my E90 it was love at first drive. It's the last thing I think about before going to sleep, and the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning. I'm going to be looking into hopefully taking some time off work for Bimmerfest East as well, so I can fly out there and join in on the festivities.

Welcome to the fest! I think you made a good choice choosing the e90 over the e60. The 335i is just more fun to drive IMO.

I always post from my iPad. I upload my pictures to photobucket and then attach the images in my post. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new car.

Check my thread out and check those intake valves I'm guessing they've either never been done or need to be done.

Get a Cobb or JB4 too

WOW I got a bottle of Techron sitting in the closet going to give it to her before i gas her up in the morning. Thanks for the heads up on that. I'm undecided in the Cobb vs. JB4 debate. I hear Cobb is more expensive but easier to install and JB4 is cheaper but requires a little more work.

Techron might be good for a quick run through the system but because its a FI that stuff will never touch the intake valves. I did 6 bottles at 3k intervals and my intakes still looked like that.

I did a thread on how easy Cobb is too I love it!

Put it high! If you notice any little rumbles at idle or just in general, that clears them up and honestly I thought my car drove great prior, but its totally noticeable.

Yea, I bought the 318 a few years ago to fix up as a project with my Son. Put in a used tranny, refreshed the cooling system, fan delete, and new interior. When it was done he had already gotten attached to our little Toyota so my Daughter took it to college for a couple of years. We had some issues with it recently so she and I traded (she has my 335i at college). It turned out to just need a new battery but I have been driving it just to be sure. It is actually a very nice little car. Of course I am in major power withdrawal but otherwise I am continually impressed with how nice it is to drive. I have 190K miles on it and have had no issues aside from the battery. I am looking for another e36 in need of TLC to fix up.

The 528i is a work in progress. I bought it a while back with a blown engine so currently rebuilding it. Looking forward to the e39 experience

Thank you for FINALLY sharing pics of your baby girl, I was anxiously waiting! Haha. She looks absolutely stunning... I'd say you have a keeper. Sorry about the storm and the bad winter weather, I know it's been rough.

Congrats on your purchase!

I still have the smile on my face from my new (to me) 2006 325i.

I just clicked off my 1,000th mile in a little over two weeks. My wife says I make excuses to drive the car.

She's right!

I love this car! I can only imagine how much bigger my smile would be if I had a 335i.

It's because the car is DI (Direct Injection) why the injector cleaner doesn't clean the intake valves. You will probably need to get them blasted; or look up the DIY on cleaning them yourself if your handy with a wrench. Not too hard, done it twice myself, just time consuming. Very important to do though. It will make a world of difference.

Congrats on the new purchase. Welcome to the club.
