dropped my car off for service today..
BTW: If anyone is having a hard time finding OEM M3 spoilers for e92 Rallye Motors is showing multiple units in stock. I think it was a little pricey (if I remember I think list is like 189) they were selling them for $220+20 for betalink or you could just use the tape it comes with.
I only thought to ask cuz I saw a really nice AW E92 335xi with saddle waiting for delivery with the M3 spoiler already installed.
So today I brought my 335i coupe in for 15000 mile service(a little late I have almost 17000 on the clock)...so the guy walks me out to my loaner and its a wagon...so I was like okay cool I have never driven a wagon....I noticed it was a 5 series wagon but assumed it would be a 528xi wagon or something else that was slow....
Pulled out of the lot jumped on the highway and before I knew it I was doing over 100mph...So I thought wow this thing moves for a 528...lol
Pulled into the lot to grab some breakfast looked at the back of the car and it said 535xi...Which surprised me because while the car certainly has some power it does not feel anywhere near as fast as my coupe...I guess all the added weight and the all wheel drive slows it down...But overall it is a very nice car I might actually consider one for my wife once her lease is up.
Platinum Bronze with Saddle Brown interior.
The wagons handles exceptionally well for a big car and accelerates very smoothly on the highway..But it definetly feels alot more refined compared to my coupe. And another thing I noticed is that it does not have a dual exhaust...(well maybe it does) but both pipes are on the drivers side it is not the same exhaust as the e90/e92 have.
Anyway...just figured I would share.
I was a little disappointed when I opened the trunk and someone already stole the first aid kit (thats what I was hoping to do lol). BTW the trunk is fully automatic opens on its own and then you push a button on the inside and it closes automatically.
