Hey Everyone -

Check this out, it's an F30 335i Sport Line that I found during a casual weekend visit to BMW NA's parking lot. Also while I was there I found an F30 335i Luxury Line in a Navy (Deep Sea perhaps) Blue. This particular 335i is equipped with a stick shift , but more interesting than that is the fact that it wears a square setup. My 328i sport package obviously wears staggered rims so I'm wondering if perhaps staggered rims will only be available on the M-Sport. Was this done to reduce understeer? My guess is probably, but then again who knows since I'm not a chassis engineer. Also, the car seems bigger in photos than in person, but overall I'm satisfied with the new styling. However, I still think it's too big to be a 3 series, but I'm just stubborn I guess. Could this be the first US spec sighting in NA? Anyway enjoy the photos!

yeah it's pretty interesting stuff - license plate bracket is built into the bumper now so you can't do anything about that , but its got the cameras which let you see into blind intersections like the 5 & 7 Series cars.

Eh, I still need time to get used to the "new" look.
I like how they kept the xenon, unlike the new 650i LED headlights.

Gonna take some time to get used to but I'm sure in time it'll grow on me. The Mtech package when its released will look sick. Plus some nice rims and drop does wonders on any car so....thanks for the pics

Not feeling it with the stock look. Maybe when modified it'll look better.

Anytime! It's different, but in due time I'm sure we'll all learn to like it. I've seen some spy shots of the coupe shown to me by a tech at BMW of Bayside in Queens, NY which prove pretty interesting. Low window sills and bigger windows which I found interesting.
