My AW 335 MSPORT (large pics)

My car arrived at the dealership today so i went by to check it out. It was my first time seeing an Msport in person and it did not disappoint. The car is simply amazing! I just wish i could take it home, but unfortunately that won't happen till next week . I started it up, revved it a little, and fell in love. I was a little dismayed at how light the steering felt until i remembered that it defaulted to eco pro. In sport + the steering felt similar to my 325. These observations were made in a parking lot though, as i couldn't take it for a drive.

Here are some pictures that i took. Keep in mind that the car hasn't been cleaned. Once i detail it i will post more.

Also the hood wasn't fully closed, which is why the gap is so bad.

Very sharp looking machine !!!! Those wheels look very classy !

How come your car has no fog lights ? Are they a separate option for the UK market when you order the M Sport package ?

OOPS ! I must have been half asleep to miss the LH wheel !! I had seen the OP's location in the UK.

In any case, too bad that BMW USA has deleted the fogs for US purchasers of the M Sport package !

Soooooooooooooooooooooo torn on what colour to order (I have 2 more weeks to decide before having to finalize my September build). Was originally going w/ black... then was thinking mineral grey ... but now loving the alpine white. My heart really still sits w/ Estorial Blue II, but I know I will get bored w/ it and its a bit flashy for the office.... ohh what to do????

LOL... that one originally threw me for a loop too. I thought:

"Oh, he's in th UK."
"Huh... curious that he ordered a 335 petrol in the UK."
"Wait... there are no fog lights on that car."
"Wait... that's a LHD car!"

Yes (assuming I'm not mistaken about what the rear diffuser is). The car in these pictures is a U.S. spec car.

After you take delivery of your stunning 335i, please give us some feedback on how the Adaptive Msport suspension rides on UK roads.

Awesome car!

40oz,

It's always nice to meet other people in the military. Thanks for your service! I have an m sport on the way as well that I purchased during my current deployment with the Marines. It's nice to see real life pictures of the 18's. They were the one part of my car that I wasn't crazy about, but after seeing them I do like them. Congratulations on your new car! Have fun with it, be careful, and stay safe. By the way, are you getting any leave to enjoy the Olympics?
