Hey beden..Call me boring or maybe a lack of interior imagination but i'm back in black my reasoning is since I don't tint but include the rear sunshade the car inherits a dark near tint look for some privacy plus it's neutral only drawback is it hides my wallet & Phone!! truth. Any drive advice on this baby??

If you have the power shade try the snap in rear side shades, they do a good job without blocking the view out.

Gorgeous car, even with the wrapping still on! I picked up my 328i coupe a couple days ago with the 19" 313s and I am totally stunned by this car. The 313s are sooooo nice. I got AW exterior but almost did the Le Mans Blue. It really is a great color on these cars. As far as driving advice....like you stole it!

The black interior works well in these cars. Personally, I'm not a fan of the multi-colors that come with some of the interior color selections.

Only advice is have fun. The shifter to the left with sport button engaged (I call it super sport mode) eats fuel but is fun. Or, did you get the manual transmission instead of the DCT?

Straight on with those 313's they really pop on the coupe..Good luck with your ride as i'm coming out of an AW and really liked the color and a plus 1 on the maintenance...Very low

The DCT is an excellent transmission. I particularly love how it rev matches on downshifts. I've been practicing with the paddle shifters and starting to get the hang of it. You made a great decision with your car.

I was at the local car wash last weekend and the car in front of me was a clone of mine (except it had your wheels). The guy got it in January and said it was the best car buying decision he ever made. He absolutely loves his 335is. I've only seen one other on the road since I've had my car. I think these are a rare commodity.
