First ride after 1200 mile service!

Holy shit!

I have to say that I am thoroughly amazed by the power that this car delivers all the way to 8400 RPM. Simply incredible. My poor 335 has just been sitting now for two weeks. Sad to say, that it is on its way out the door. But, oh well. It will be tough, but I'll get over it.

So, first drive entering freeway on-ramp in E90 M3 DCT. M mode using paddles. Floored it, saw the rev warning lights, right paddle.. shift up see the red warning lights, look down at speedometer and I am approaching 80 MPH! Decided to back off. Got on the freeway. Clear section, no cars. Switched back to M mode dropped it down a couple of gears to hit 6,000 rpm. Floored it to 8400, bounced off rev limiter shifted up and looked down and now I am at 120 mph.

Conclusion. I am moving to Germany!

Wundervoll!
