I love my 335i.

Simple post: It's not perfect. The E90's steering was better. The 235 is faster. The ATS handles better. CarandDriver crowned the Lexus. The b58 is right around the corner...etc etc.

But damn! It's the finest car I've owned to date. It suits me just right!

Lots of people like to complain (me included!), but how about a good old fashioned circle jerk of love for your 335? Anyone?

I love my 335i. I had an e90 328i, miss that car, but the refinement and technology of the new 335 makes up for it. I also have an M3 as my toy. So I have best of both worlds.

I just left my 435, for a 335. I like the 335 even more. I think it even looks better.

Plus I'm home sick with a cold and a little bored. Let me continue. Lol.

I regularly have a baby and a 3 year old in my backseat. It's plenty of room.

Also, the other day my dad and a friend were driving around in it. Playing around, going fast. Really whipping the thing. I start talking about MPPK and other mods I'd like. Dad looks at me like I'm crazy. "You do not need this thing to go any faster!" Got me thinking....

I should post some pics. It's just a beautiful car. Love it. Well, obviously.

Jerk on, everyone!

Yes. It does need to go faster... The MPPK and MPE are worth it just sounding so much better if anything!

I love my car too. I use to love my 03 1.8t Jetta when I was 20... thought it was fast... then I got a 2013 TL AWD.... really fast, but now with this car, oh my!

I get excited everytime I drive it. I can't wait to start my mods, I have a locker full of mods I've purchased but not installed.

Agreed. Love my 335. Loved my E90 too but this car is more sophisticated and drives wonderfully. Great engine.

Tony, I posted something similar to yours last year. The title was, is 335i the best car ever made? I considered a lot of factors before I posted it. It's 4 door, fast, nice size trunk, handles well, did I say it's fast, and it looks so damn good. I compared it to many cars that I owned before this, some way more expensive and more exotic. There is something very cool about driving a 335. Can't put my finger on what it is but its a special car. Sure M3 is faster, 435 is sportier but I wouldn't change the 335 for nothing. Cheers brother its one fine car

Best car Ive ever owned

Traded in my F10 535 M Sport early to buy my 335. Drove a 435xi M Sport and preferred the 335 to both cars. Already did the Dinan Stage 1 and coil uograde. The car is tremendous. Handles at least as good as the 435, is 200 lbs lighter than a GC x drive car and you can still get it with a stick. Actually think it's more capable than my 2010 E92 M Sport X drive car. Fantastically fast, comfortable with great electronics. Can't wait Til I put lighter forged wheels with PSS on it in April.

I think so, the front is 50%, the rear I believe is close to 20%. I got it like that, so I don't know the exact specs. I'd like to make the front match more, maybe go to 35%..

I think we pretty much have the same car, except mine is sport line, not m-sport. Love it. I want to do Dinan springs and Stage I like you did; then it would be perfect I think.. Unfortunately I am about to move, so goodbye mod money

Love my 2013 335i as well. Really couldn't imagine a better vehicle for my needs right now. Not much that I don't like about the car. Does so many things really well and, from my perspective, does not have many faults.

As a first time BMW owner, I've been really happy with my 335 thus far. I cross shopped the A4 and a C class and I'm glad I went with the bimmer.

You'll really like the Dinan.

Lately I've been contemplating a 335 once the lease is up on my 328 Sport next spring. After reading all your posts, I'm not more eager than ever - and I've never even driven a 335!

If you have to drive in snow you can't get a better car than a 335xi with a few Dinan upgrades. Its a fantastic car. I had an E92 328xi followed by an E92 335xi. No comparison to me. When set up properly the 335 is really a great all around car. The 328 with the new Dinan tune gets to 300HP which is pretty good but the 335 with Dinan is 270+. Its as close as Ill ever get to an M3.

The current 335i's greatest competitor is the previous generation. Even with the comparo losses, I prefer the 335i over comparable model offerings from Lexus,Audi,MB and Cadillac.

I attached a pic of mine. Perfectly equipped! (Melbourne, Black Dakota, M-line,PP,CW,Nav,DA,6MT,19inch 403M wheels)

Xdrive need not apply. All my bimmers rock winter rubber and handle wonderfully in inclement weather.
