Newbie - Just picked up my 335i M-Sport!

I'm pretty excited. I've always appreciated the brand but it wasn't until I got one of their motorcycles that I became a true fan. I already have a few questions about some of the equipment, but I'll put those on the next post. Meanwhile, I'll be driving it!!

It looks like more people are getting the carbon fibre spoiler these days. It does look great in person and I am starting to feel good about keeping mine. I had been planning on taking mine off upon delivery.

OP great build

That is a serious option list - curious if there were any additional options you were considering getting, but ultimately decided against and why (if any, I didn't try to reconcile it) - it doesn't look like cost was a factor

Also, how is your experience with all the safety options? was considering rear collision (whatever it is called) - but I almost crashed the demo car several times trying to get the alert to go ogg - it didn't really help the way I hoped - also I liked the idea of blind spot but you have to be going above a certain limit, and unfortunately in Warsaw traffic here I rarely get above it, despite how low it is (50km/hr - 30 mph I think?)

eg. looks like you decided against active suspension, or is it within a package?

Actually guys, this was NOT an ordered car. It was on the lot. Here in Austin Texas they had about 9 335i's and this one had the most options. I hadn't originally intended to buy this one but they gave me way more for my trade (Lexus LS400) than I expected so I stepped up. See my next post for options report...

Before I bought my Glacier Silver in Dallas I was looking at a few in BMW of Austin last November and they seem to like to order a lot of cars with that side skirt graphic . Car looks good!

Wow. Surprising amount of options to be on the lot. Maybe somebody bailed out on their order?

In any event nice accoutrements!

Congrats! I picked up mine last week. I told my CA that the 15 minute test drive does these cars absolutely no justice at all. Getting MPPK next week, cant wait!!
