Thanks. I'll probably leave the decal off tbh. It'll save some more for something else too

Btw... What wheels are those?

I do like them, but I think you need to go with the black front splitter to make them work tbh. I'm trying to be quite subtle, so I'm sticking with boot spoiler, side sills in black and diffuser (maybe part painted)

Can't decide!

I'm about to order my 2014 335i xdrive Msport. I can't decide between Estoril Blue or White...Some of the pics I see on the forum look really light. I prefer a darker deeper blue. At first glance blue is my first choice. My wife is afraid I'll get sick of it. The other factor is "I'm getting old at 37" I like the
Venetian Beige Dakota Leather. Looks like 95% are going with black interior.
Another issue is I haven't seen the blue in person..No dealer has it.
Anyone in Milwaukee driving one? Thoughts?
Thanks

i was in the same boat, and i decided to go wit the EB2, and I am so happy that I did, its such a cool color, at night it gets darker but its not really light during the day, the silver flakes come out on the sun and make it sparkle, but at night is a deeper blue so its sexy all day/night long, lots of ppl commented on the color. I turned 27 last month, btw age is just a number, for example my dream is to have a Lamborghini and if i ever come to a point in life to have one and that will be later in my life for sure, it will be candy green regardless of my age 50 or 60, its about what you like and how you feel about it not what others think

i live in chicago, only seen maybe 4 other EB2s 2 of them were 335i, i dont like that the xdrive, it is heavier and also higher suspension so i decided to go with rwd, in the winter if it snows a lot they clean the snow with in hour and also i wanted to have staggered set up , it makes the car look sportier, i have all seasons and havent had any problems

Thanks for the info.
I need the all wheel drive for 2 reasons. I'm a firefighter and work 24 hour shifts. If there is a nasty blizzard and everything is closed my work isn't and I have to get there. The second reason is my wife driving in snow. Shw drives a Ford Explorer Sport so it's AWD but we swap cars every now and then. I'm leaning to the EB2 but in need to see it in person. On that note I'll be heading to Munich Germany in a week to visit family so I'll probably see one there

y don't you do an ED since you are already going to Munich, I did it last year and its one of the best things I have done, plus you get the car for less $$$ than if you were buying it here?????

I just turned 40, bought myself a birthday present, a ED (Euro Delivery) trip for my new 335xi. EB II is for everyone my friend. The color actually looks much darker in person than the photos you're looking at. I ended up with Coral Red (Superman combo) and the car is fabulous.

This is what it looks like when there's no sun distorting the color.

I don't see anything wrong with the stock wheels. I like 'em. Is this stock height?

Thanks for the feedback guys. I ordered EBII through European Delivery (Thanks Roki_014). Now I have to decide between a matte black or painted front splitter. N3M35IS's looks good but so do the cars with the painted front splitter.
Thoughts?
