Smile (New to Me) 2016 435i Lease

Had to post a couple pictures of my new ride --
Used (but never titled) 2016 435i Coupe. Got w/ 6000 miles on it.

I had wanted a 235i, but they did not have any in a manual transmission, so thankfully they had a 435i with similar options and with a M/T.

I am coming off a 2014 335i A/T but did not like the transmission at all. 8-gears seems too many. It was a smooth ride, but it never seemed to be in the right gear. Downshifts were slow at normal cruising speeds. When you floor it -- the shifts were lightning quick, but that is not how I commonly drove the car. In everyday traffic, I did not like the way it drove as much as other cars.

My favorite BMW was my old 2011 335i with the 6-speed automatic. That always "seemed to be in the right gear" because it barely had to shift! The engine is so torquey, you can cruise all day in 4th with little need to shift at all. I greatly prefer the older 6-speed automatic gearbox to this new 8-speed. So.....that's why I went back to a manual.....that was a "must have" for me.

So -- on to the new car! I love the car and love even more the transmission. It's amazing how much of a difference the "SPORT" setting changes the car and throttle response. Fantastic car and very fun to drive !!!!! I am thinking of doing a minor mod to the exhaust because I do miss the sport exhaust my 335i had. Maybe !

Trying to upload pics -- "security token" is missing. No idea what that means. lol
