How can we possibly downgrade to a V6 F80/82/83?



Also, the performance of the DCT blows away my expectations... I had a 2009 e90 M3 6 speed.. no way I would go back. Sorry 6 speed-ers...

2011 M3

Still can't remove the permanent grin off the face!

And to think that I a l m o s t did the 335is vert... my 13 year old boy talked me out of it. Smart one.. that one.

Welcome to the vert group - I agree, the sound just amazes me. And as much as I love accelerating, there's nothing quite like downshifting from 3rd to 2nd at about 3000 rpm. VOOSH. It scares people. And dogs. FYI.

For that, I'd say you owe him a drive in the M3 when he hits 16 and gets his license.

Enjoy the car.

Congrats! For the only couple thousand difference between 335is and M3 it really is a no-brainer to go with the M3. Ok, maybe its 10k, but whats 10k when you're already spending 85 (In Canada)? lol

Congrats and welcome aboard! I'm a fan of the 1er. I test drove it at the performance center and it's a fierce little thing. Add in the Performance pack and performance suspension and you get one nice pocket rocket.

Thanks.. yes... the BMW Performance suspension is spot on... they did it right.. just too bad there is no limited slip. Car is begging for more power with the suspension.. but waiting for the N55 from Dinan

an exhaust on a vert makes it 10 times more enjoyable!

I believe turner motorsport makes a limited slip for the 135i.

Check their website out:

Nice purchase on the M3 vert btw!

Wow! Thanks for that! I think that Dinan sells one too. Wonder how they compare...

Welcome to the club buddy - I've had my dct vert for over 3 years and 37k miles - and I still totally look forward to driving it every day - and yes - nailing throttle in a tunnel (or lower wacker drive in Chicago) makes a sound that is simply indescribable! Not once in over 3 years have I ever been bored with this car!
