fromm 335i to m3

so i orderd my 2011 mineral white m3 coupe on june 25. with mdrive, edc, 19' wheels. when i ordered my 335i back in 2007, i was real excited. then the new m3 came out in 2008. was a bit dissapointed that i did not wait. i cant wait to see how different these two cars really are. now for the wait.

i know the feeling, I ordered my E90 330i in 2005 and then when the 335i came out I was totally dissapointed that I didn't wait.

nice choice on the colour, too much AW out there, Mineral will be subtly different!

I did a similar thing - moved from 2007 335xi to M3. Completely worth it for me. M3 is a surprisingly different car.

I did a 2008 335xi to a 2008 M3

I'm never looking back again

The M3 may be the best sports DD car for all seasons out there.

Haven't seen a mineral white yet, should be sweet...

I did the same as well 07 335-->08 M3. Loved my car every day since.

You'll love the m3. Feels so much more "solid".

I didn't realize MW was already available for order on June 25th.
What else am I missing that isn't on BMW.ca?

Have you spoken to anyone at BMW Canada about the types of Changes BMWNA is introducing to the M3 for September+ builds (i.e. your car)?

Cool!
It was my fault for living in an E90 bubble. I didn't realize the E92 had a colour option not available on the E90. I'm glad it was a NC option rather than the $800 the configurator lists.

congrat on the purchase...i have driven both cars in the BMW driver training course.
335i is ok...M3 is definitely at a different level.

Aug 31 delivery date? Hope you survive the 5000km burn in period and have a taste of what the M3 can do before the winter comes.

if winter turns out like last winter, i should have enough time. i know i will like the m, but as a daily driver to work and back, not at the track, im wondering if it is as much fun as the 335i with the torque it has. regardless im way more excited waiting for the M , then with the 335i.
