The 335d is not available new, so I would be shopping used.  I don't think I would ever purchase new, in any event. 08/09 ISF's are similarly priced to 11 335d's. I'm not interested in Audi....I've driven the S4 and for the price, I'm not overly impressed compared to a 335. Volvo's aren't bad, but it's tough to find an unmolsted S60R. I've never been a big fan of Benz outside of the Gelandawagen's and some of their high up sports cars. I was more looking for advice between...
I'm putting my 2011 135i on the market today.  I'm torn on what to get to replace the car.  I'm between a 335d and an IS-F.....outside of four doors and RWD, they are quite different, but both have a certain allure.   I've driven both.....any advice from the group?
I like the quality of product for the price and the variety that they offer.   What I don't like, and I think it could pose a long term threat if they fail to address it, is the innaccuracy of their finishing times.  I've backed a variety of campaigns and I think only one (apron) was delivered according to the original timeline.   Despite that, I still order from them.
I've thought about that, but at full price + MTO fee, I might as well go the Rancourt/Oak Street Bootmakers route for CXL loafers.
Booooo   Makes sense, though.  Thanks for the reply.
I noticed that the Duke Brown Football Grain Leather Penny Loafer is on sale.....and it doesn't appear to be a closeout, from what I can tell.   I've only done one MTO, so I've got a question:   How far can one go with altering the make up of an existing model?   Would a Duke Brown Football Grain Leather Penny be able to be MTO'd with natural CXL, a leather soul and unlined?  Basically creating a version of a CXL beefroll loafer ala Rancourt/Oak Street...
Does Rancourt have Factory 2nd's like AE also has?
Indeed!  This is my first Rancourt experience and their CS is proving to be excellent. From those pictures it looks like it might be a dressier leather?  Or maybe it's just the pictures.  I'm drawn to CXL due to its durability and casual-to-business-casual appearance along with it's aging qualities.  I wonder if this Teak Fargo maintains those same characteristics.
I heard back from Katie at Rancourt in regards to my natty cxl loafers that I posted a page ago.  Sometimes there are issues getting a tight topline with CXL loafers, and they have offered to remake them (at no cost) in Teak Fargo leather (a veg tanned leather).  Anyone ever heard of this type?  Pictures?
Thanks for the reply!  I have a few other CXL shoes....boots, in particular.  So, do you think that the bowing will go away with breaking them in?  Or is that just the nature of how these are made...?
