Nice, that 328i - 335xi - M3, ALL E90's trajectory is quite interesting.

I'm in a 328xi at the moment (and actually have it up for a lease trade since I'll be going back to school and will not be needing a car). The 335xi definitely has the 300hp and TwinPower turbo technology with the 3liter and the inlne 6cyl strong advantage. What was it that made *you* wanna move into the 335xi? And then the M3?

M3 is just suuuch a beauty and power horse with the 414hp (but sadly not a lucrative fuel economy for those of us who are greatly concerned with the impact on environment) !!

^ Natural progression. More power ... 300 (335) then 400 (M3) then 500 (M5) and 600 (next gen M5), etc.

Some have already made the transition to Porsche 911 GT3 or even higher

Actually, it's the other way around.

I moved from a last generation mazda 3 2.3 hatchback to a 997 turbo, then to a 328i(pre-lci E90), then a heavily modded 335xi, then M3

997 turbo was bought at the end of 2008 and it's still with me. I have got used to the power long time ago and always been eager for more power. But I have no plan to mod it though since it's a convertible. It's a great car but because it's AWD, not too much enjoyable.

Then 328i, it's for daily use, great car, good fuel consumption. But got totalled while an idiot front end my car. It's gone but not forgotten

Next, 335xi. I planned to drive it in winter. But accidently bring it to track in summer. By that time, couple of my friends started modding the 335i's so I am incented to continue modding it. Right now with RB's it's putting about 450awhp, 470lb-ft. It's still with me.

Of course it's a mistake not to own the M3 at first. The M3 has a much more overall balance than a modified 335. but the lack of power just makes me sick... plan to go for ESS VT3 at the end of this year.

Congrats and welcome to the ///M club! Looking forward to seeing you in one of the meet and greets! If you see an E93 M3 Jerez Black with the top down around Burnaby and Surrey, that would be me
