Surprisingly a big difference from my 320i I have just sold.:
Agree. had a 320 rental while my 328 was getting some work done. Huge power difference. Just about the same diff moving from 328 to 435 and again to an M3. Then I drove an M5 competition and that made my M3 feel like very slow and very cheap. Damn you M5!!!

DIY rock guard...I'm frequently on I-95 in south FL which is a permanent construction zone...
Put one in the bumper too. No noticeable impact on cooling or A/C

I'd say just take it all the way to 335 or 340 if you are looking for more performance and not concerned about mileage. Nothing against 328, it was my first car after moving to this country, had plenty of fun with it, but again, it also depends on the needs of the individual, good luck

The OEM ones are great, stronger than the reps since they are forged vs low pressure cast. However if you want a square setup and to save some money reps are a nice alternative. They also offered 9.5 which would give a little more concavity.

Finally did the 3M anti-squeak tape on the shadowline trim around the door seals. Can't believe I waited this long! Only Day 1, but the annoying squeaks are history.

Bought one. Really glad I took the plunge, and also glad I held out for a 2 door.

Looking good! I wanted a coupe, but they are super hard to find in or around Boston and I didn't want to pay to ship.
