Nice - Congratulations! If you are not already a member I would suggest joining BMW Car Club of America (BMW CCA) and find a chapter in your area - www.bmwcca.org
Lot’s of good and helpful people. Car Control clinic is awesome learning program (if I was “law” I would make it mandatory for every driver on the road). Also , they have HPDE (High Performance Driving Events) where you can take the car to the track…IMO driving on the track is one of the most unique driving experiences (

Got the radar all hooked up I see :) I just got a new 325i... I love it but its no comparison to the 335i...

Hey, I like your car so much that I just ordered a 5X7 and three wallet size pics from the website where the pictures are posted. Now if I can just photoshop my picture into the driver's seat.

Awesome ride. I am seriously considering the 335i sedan cause I have a new baby (need a 4 door) and I can't wait any longer for the new M3. I need to go test drive one soon!

radar detector ... now what would a law abiding citizen need with one of those ;-)

|The 335i's manual gearbox can be notchy, and the seatbelt presenter takes some getting used to. |
Have you gotten used to that seatbelt presenter yet?
|Aside from a flexible standard stereo, cabin tech is mostly a case of pay-to-play. |
That's what I want to know about. How are the tunes in this new ride?

After less than a thousand miles, I really like it. Works flawlessly. You don't have to be a contortionist just to grab your seatbelt.

This is the only vehicle I've had that has a separate owner's manual for the audio system. I'm no audiophile, but it has the best sound system of any car I've owned. Likes? You can play your mp3 player through the system. Dislikes? I assumed the CD player came with a changer - it doesn't; you have to add one. Since the changer goes in the trunk, I'll have to think about that one.
Without doing a thorough review, let me just say that when I was driving home from a particularly tough day in court this past Thursday, I enjoyed driving the car so much I literally had a smile on my face. :)

Cool, some BMW fans. Most people hate the marque.
Here's me in mine, waiting in line at a track day:

Good, another track junkie! (nice car by the way). What organization are you running with? Most of my disposable income goes towards prepping the car and track related expenses, which amounts to a lot, however I am never sorry after the event :)

good to see some people using their hard earned cash for having some fun. This is my track toy.
you couldn't have more fun than on the track

>Titanium silver, manual trannie, premium and sport packages.
Good color, good trans, good package.....IMHO wrong manufacturer :( For a few more dollars you could have been in a Porshe, and only then would you understand the difference!
Congrats on your new ride, it it cool. But, tell me you don't really desire a Porsche?

>>For a few more dollars you could have been in a Porshe
My response to the same question you asked August 11 found HERE [webmasterworld.com]:
|As to the Porsche, don't know which Porsche has the same features for the money. Reality dictates that I have a car with a back seat and a real trunk. |
I did look at Porsches. Wife loves 911s. She sat in one as I negotiated the BMW. I no doubt would have had her support. I'm sure I could have justified it somehow. However, as much fun as that woud have been, it would have been the wrong decision given my needs.

Sweet wheels.... were you sad to see the "G" go?

>>were you sad to see the "G" go
Hey pmac; long time no hear.
No doubt about it. I loved that car. Overall the bimmer is a much better ride, but it's not as pleasing to the eye as the Infiniti [public.fotki.com].
Hope to see you in Vegas.

I'm getting a little bored of mine to be honest. Putting it in storage for the winter in a couple weeks and will look for something new come spring. I love the looks of it, but it just doesn't have enough low end grunt for my liking.
Catch ya in vegas for sure :)

"Back seat", "trunk".....what the heck do we need with those things?
I need to squeeze a set of golf clubs in every now and then, apart from that I need a seat, my babe (wife) needs a seat, and the luggage needs to accomadate our lifestyle (light).
Your wife was right, with a C6 'Vette you had a better choice, we love our C6! But, the fun car is always the Porsche!
BMW is just sooooo "old man" now! Listen to your Mrs! :)

i posted a link to pics of my car in this thread, but i think the new ones i'll be posting tomorrow are going to be a lot worse.
Came round a tight bend this morning and ended up in 2 hedges after doing 3 spins. Basically the front and rear ends of the car are gone. the boot and it's contents were non existant.
no body was hurt badly (just got some bruising) and no other cars were involved, just going a bit too fast on a wet road.... be careful out there.
pics to come tomorrow after i get to the garage to take some for the insurance. My girlfriend thought no one could have come out of it alive it looked that bad.

well, here they are.

you might want to consider a landrover if you intend doing this often ..:)
| 1:32 pm on Nov 8, 2006 (gmt 0)|
you know what - your not the 1st person to tell me to get one after what happened.
i think a sensible car is on the books next.
| 1:40 pm on Nov 8, 2006 (gmt 0)|
you could have both in one :)
| 1:45 pm on Nov 8, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I was going to suggest a Hummer but that car looks better Leosghost :)

From the pictures, it looks like the passenger compartment held up pretty good.
| 9:30 am on Nov 9, 2006 (gmt 0)|
yeah, the passenger compartment was absolutely fine as it's reinforced but the rest of it is more or less plastic so it just fell to pieces when i hit the hedges.
