Thank you for clarifying for the others on here. Some people seem to think because of other cars Ive owned, you must have 500hp+ to be happy. I dont compare or care what the guy at the light next to me is driving. Same reason I dont have the M version of the x5. I dont need the power. I hate the mentality of people on here that think you drive the car you can afford. Those types of people are ONLY driving the cars they can afford.

I actually came by the 335 on accident. Traded the M3's in because I wasnt driving them. Then came to miss the BMW. I had a sour taste for the M car. Too many trips to the damn gas station, short range on a 300+ mile trip, the DCT almost killed me a few times, and I prefer the runflats on the 335i. DONT FLAME ME. But they have saved my life from being stranded in BFE a few times. Last flat in the m3 I had it towed and messed up my whole day. This is just about using a 335 for a daily. I have too many cars that rattle my fillings out as it is. As far as the loss on what Ive spent, I dont even want to go there. It was foolish but like everyone here, I was obsessed with my M3.

I also own a Hyundai if it makes some of you feel better.

PS: 997GT3, I see you have a 2013 GT-R on its way? I have a 2010 with a few mods. If you have driven one, then between you and I, you'll understand when I say it makes a blown M3 still feel torque anemic. For the record my supercharged M3 made 480whp/310 ftlbs of torque and the GT-R I drove during the same period of ownership made 480whp/516ftlbs.
