How to run 335i fastest!!!

I want to keep my car stock for now, but how can I get 4.8 seconds or atleast 5 second 0-60 runs!! Like people or magazines say!! I tried using the paddle shifters but they change gear alone sometimes or they even change back to automatic sometimes as well .. If someone can help me run my 335i coupe faster, how should I do it thanks !!

Step 1: Sell vehicle.
Step 2: Purchase new vehicle with manual transmission.
Step 3a: Double clutch.
Step 3b: Do NOT granny-shift.

Does the dct limit your revs like steptronic and shift for you, or does it let you inch towards the red or let you bounce?

Well, you never posted the numbers you got, and what precision equipment you used to measure it.

lol those are also professional drivers who know proper rollouts exc. mashing on it with paddle shifters unless you got an underrated engine from the factory the odds are against you.

Why would one double-clutch on a 0-60 run? (Or generally on a synchronized manual transmission?)

The entire premise of this thread makes me laugh.

That being said, depending on what year your car is the paddles will be different. But lets just assume you're "runnin" a pre 2011 335i. Both paddles will shift up when pulled towards you, and both paddles will shift down when pressed away from you.

To use the paddle shifters correctly without them shifting for you, simply pull a paddle towards you to shift up before the RPM gauge hits the redline. Rinse and repeat for each gear until the desired speed has been reached.

As a side note, I dont understand what you gain from being able to do 0-60 runs faster? Are you street racing illegally? if so, please don't. It makes the rest of us BMW owners looks bad. Are you trying to impress women? I just don't understand why you want to be able to do 0-60 runs faster unless you're drag racing on a track or something. And if you were, you would most likely be looking into modding the car and not learning how to use the paddle shifters

smh. Kids these days. (Just turned 26 myself btw)

Nice bro, no I don't impress women by driving fast, nor street race illegally, even though sometimes I do accelerate faster than usual, but I don't really speed ,I just drag race at a track with similar cars, infinities , nissans etc... I just want to beat them by more if I could lol, but I always run on sport mode automatic since I'm not 100% on how to use the shifters, oh and the women I find them in the clubs or at school never use my car to pick them up, the car is a plus after they met me lol ***55357;***56833; ***55357;***56486;***55357;***56902;

Good to know. I can respect someone who takes it to the track and doesn't street race.

But yeah, the simple guide in my previous post should be all the help you need.

In my experience, the only reason it would shift for you if you were in manual mode is to protect the engine because you've redlined it to far.

Also, if you want to launch in manual mode from a stand still, simply "shift down" it should stay in 1st gear but will acknowledge that you want to be in manual mode and should wait for you to shift it from that point on. You'll know its in manual mode if instead of D, or DS it says M1 for Manual 1st gear. (or M2, M3 etc....).

Your signature is confusing me. If you have an 2013 F30, why is your sig an E92?

I have an 08 by the way, the fastest my car can run should be ran from manual mode M1 ? Or M2? At the start of course , I've heard people say rev your car before taking off, now idk if that's safe though. Just want to learn for extra knowledge.

Because it's a 2013 E92? One of the last ones manufactured before the 4-series started. Took delivery July 17th, 2013.

Color me confused. I thought all 2013 MY cars were F30s besides E93s?

YC21, gotta clue ya: 335i is not a torque-on-demand V8 drag machine. Nor is it a particularly wonderful handling car. You can have more power, and much better handling....but not stock.

You have officially been colored confused. Make sure to mark that in the required checkbox.

Anyways, you could still order a MY2013 E92 up until about August I think.

Sorry for thread jacking OP!

Guilty as charged. Now what am I missing? I hear some say double-clutching a downshift on a synchronized transmission "might" reduce wear, but really, who even knows how to properly double-clutch these days. But double-clutching an upshift on a synchronized transmission? Does it reduce wheelspin during the shift? That should clearly not be an issue on a 335i even with all the nannies off...
