FiRi's 335i
FIRSTLY.....a big thanks you to all the fanatics who answered my questions, gave their much valued input and honest advise. I say it again, WHAT A FORUM!!!!!

So heres the story, October 2013 seen the reluctant sale of my first BMW, an E46 330i which i loved to bits. I didnt HAVE to sell the car, it just my ass was itching for something which reminded me of my previous car, which an was 2007 OPC chipped.

I loved the OPC for it looks and its power, it had that feeling of a drivers car, and it was my first Force induction car, so the instant power was too addictive.

The E46 however, made me realize the difference between the two GERMAN manufactures. My 330, despite being manufactured 4 years prior to the OPC, has a fantastic ride. It was smoother, had an engine and exhaust note which was to die for, quieter in terms of road noise, much more refined, more SOLID on the road and had that nice *clank* when you closed the door. After my first test drive when viewing the car, I was sold on it, the kilos were right, the condition was good, but moreover, i knew i was REALLY buying into a Quality brand. The E46 stayed with me for just over 2 years, and what a time it was. After joining the fanatics forum, I got more involved with the car, and the forum and its members inspired me to bring her to an even better condition then she already was. I did what I needed to make my heart happy in terms of cosmetics on the car, and did the cooling system as a safety measure as well.

THEN....i drove that DAMN Z4M.....Ive written a small post on my experience with the OH SO DAMN GOOD car, so i aint gonna spell it out here again. But that was it....THE ITCH STARTED....as CLARKSON would say...POWWEEEER, is what i needed..... the itch that was created would not go away. I tried suppressing it but to no avail, and so the HUNT began.

Everynight, an hour or so MINIMUM, was being dedicated to searching ALL the sites for a car that would make me happy and fit in my budget. I decided on an E90 335 or e90 330d, ARBEES 330d had opened my eyes to diesels like never before Bluebiggrin

Finally, after a crap load of discussions I settled on getting a 335. Then came 2 door or 4 door problem, and that was solved quickly, as my brother has a 335 coupe which i wanted to take, so used it for a week. The 2 door with a family is too much of a hassle, so i scratched the coupe out. Last choices came down to either, 335i schnitzer conversion ( TREVOR NOAHS previous car) , or a white 335 with 20000k less kilos. Needless to say, the schnitzer looked the business and did it as well on the road, but the mileage was 20k more then the white one, and 50k more expensive as well. Did some discussions with the family, put my feeling for the schnitzer aside, and went to go and look at white 335. Fell in love the second i jumped in, for a 6 year old car, previous owner kept it in pristine condition.

2 months Later, on the 4th of JAN, i finally picked my new car up. I AM loving it to bits. Im not going wild and planting the paddle into the rear of the engine bay, I know the power is there, but for now Im ENJOYING the comfort and ride so much that it makes me feel old Bluebiggrin The Car came with everything you could want:

- i drive SATNAV
- Xenons
- Dynamic Light package
- Keyless Go
- Paddle Shift
- Heated Seats
- Electric seats with memory
- Lumber Support
- TV
- Upgraded Hifi Sound
- PDC front and rear
- Sunroof
- Mpack KIT
- OEM Mpack boot spoiler
- Rear Blind
- Passenger Blinds
- 72 000 kilo on clock
- Motorplan till 2015

Was so happy to get everything i wanted =)

Nothing more i could ask for, besided 19 rims, which i intend doing RollsmileRollsmile

Anyways Still a lot of cosmetic surgery needed on the car to get it where i want it in terms of appearance, but all in due course. Now for Pics of previous cars and the new one. Sorry abt all the reading Bluebiggrin=)
