Beautiful!! I love the different colored dials in the Modern. You didn't like the natural wood finish available with this line?

Beautiful...more pictures please!

Modern Line is beautiful; very understated. More so than the Luxury Line...the Modern has less "bling".

I think a Modern Line 335i is the ultimate sleeper-mobile. Nice car.

That natural wood trim is very different and stunning in the Modern Line, but this was the only 335i in the dealer's inventory that came close to the wife's preferences. The Anthracite trim is nice too.

Thanks. Took a series of three exposures (+2, 0, -2) on a tripod, then combined them into a single HDR image. Also waited for clouds to block the sun to get high reflectance.

I'm amazed with the Top View camera feature. Now I don't know how I lived without it.

Modern alloys on 335i M Sport

Congrats on your beautiful looking new Modern Line ! Much better than the fussy looking Luxury line.

You have a good eye for composition and very nice exposure ! Well done !

Like you, I too really like the Modern turbine alloys. Now fitted on my M Sport for the winter.

The turbine alloys are an interesting contrast against the M Sport bodywork. Question - how do you like the M Adaptive suspension?

I am very satisfied with this suspension. There is a very noticeable difference between Comfort and Sport. The ride in Sport setting is similar to my previous E90-335i, reasonably firm with good damping. However, the latest RFTs are more compliant for rough pavement or for potholes. For city driving I tend to use the Sport setting for both chassis and steering; I switch to Comfort or EcoPro for highway to increase fuel efficiency.
