despite their overwhelming popularity amongst douche bags, 335s drive very well. no shame!

I can relate to that. I have put less than 1k miles on the Ferrari in the last 2 years. Today when I drove it to the office it was only the second time I had been in the car since I got it back from its engine out major service about 2 months ago. The car is perfectly dialed in, it was pure excitement from start to finish. There have been times I have questioned why I even have the damn thing, but I really, really love it. The sensory stimulation of such a low and tight package, and the sound of the tubi (bass and burble at idle and banshee scream at redline), there's just nothing like it that I've found that compares. I'm a little embarrassed to say that at least a couple times a week I will sneak out to the garage after dinner with a cold beer, flip the shop lights on and just look at the cars. I have loved cars since I was a little kid and even though I can't drive them enough, it's such a joy to have them.

if the 335i were available with the DCT tranny in the states, there'd be a 55% chance I'd dump my ZHP for it.

btw, bonded with a new coworker today over bimmers. god it feels good to talk to other guys who are not only car enthusiasts, but bimmer fans as well.

post #6973 of 14976
see, if I bought a bummer and spent 1 hour at one of those meets I'd probably return it.

lol, I went to one of those meets once. there are some characters that show up to these things. to be fair, there are chill, normal people too. but different guys there:

1. told his friend, right in front of me, "those BBS wheels are nice, but those are the cheapest ones they make" - referring to mine
2. asked me why I didn't buy a 1M instead
3. walked up to my car's hood, stuck his nose an inch from the paint and started pointing out to himself what I assumed were specks of dust
4. tried to sell me legal insurance
5. parked next to me, struck up a conversation, and contrived to show me that he had a handgun in his glove compartment
