I traded in my tuned 08 E90 335XI (N54)
to a New 11 E92 335XI (N55)
. I decided I would go with the E92XI and drop about $30+K
into this thing and make it Fassssssst and enjoy the benifits of AWD in the winter times rather then opt for the M3. I didn't listen to the N55 skeptics
, because I thought adding tune, DP, Exhaust, Meth, suspension, tires and many other cool things would make my car faster than a stock M3.
After all that time and energy I ended up with a cool looking car that was slow as ASS! I regretted giving up my N54
So my wife and I took my FBO N55 to a M3 meet (summer 2011), that "Prince_of_Persia"
kindly invited me to. I ran that bitch hard! Spraying meth like it was my job
There were probably 20+ M3's in the caravan, running through the beautiful Canadian Rockies for about an hour. It took EVERYTHING that car had to keep up with the stock M3's. We ran through some awesome twisties and climbs on the back roads of the mountains. We arrived at the destination for lunch and it took a good 45 min's for my white knuckles to get blood circulation again and clean the seats from PISSING myself
let people see me sweat so I played it cool with the others.
There was another couple
from Edmonton who had just done a Euro delivery of their new white E90 M3. They were behind us the whole way. They got out of their car looking CALM & RELAXED
, looking like they just spent an hour at the spa, getting a massage. My wife and I looked like nervous wrecks who had spent the past hour fighting off a prison gang RAPE
NOW KEEP IN MIND
My wife loves to drive with me and she enjoys when I push my car hard, but she knew I was pushing it's limits. While carving the canyons my 335xi (stage 2 dinan suspension, HRE's, Pireli's, square set-up...) WAS NOT planted and the M3's were making it look easy.
Before we got out of the car my wife turned to me and told me to get an M3. She offered to teach me to drive in the snow
. She knew I wouldn't trade in a brand new car for another brand new car SO she found me my M3 and surprised me with it
The ressssssst is history
This is a true story.

The logic was quite simple, Phillip said:
: "THE MORE POWER, THE EASIER TO PLOW THROUGH THAT SHIT"
