Just arrived 2013 335xi

Waited 3 months to get what I ordered.

So far new grilles, tint and rear spoiler, winter tires staggered, 3m rockgard.

I also bought a 2013 Audi S4 for my wife to compare to it.

Will let you know how each compares!

Nice garage, looking at the last picture, I would be nervous as heck that the kids next door might over shoot the basketball back board and land the ball on one of your cars
BTW, how does the X-drive compare to the quattro in the snow?

Some basic observations in the snow. The 335x in sport mode allows the rear end to drift out more and carving a smooth line with the rear out is possible under power and traction control does not cut in and jamb on the brakes in one of the wheels creating a sudden stop to the turn like it does in the S4. I tried the same thing in both cars in a large empty parking lot with hardpacked snow.

Ya I am very cognasant of that basket ball net during the summer.

How do the 19's with snow tires handle the snow? I've been contemplating running the Blizzak LM-60's on my stock 19's and getting aftermarket wheels for the summer.

It handles awesome throught the snow and when the roads are dry as well. I'm using the blizzaks as well from TR for about $1250
I'm running the stagger fit with same sizes as stock.
