I no where condone street racing. But I have to be honest and admit I have a very heavy Italian lead foot. (My father has a 97 Mustang GT) Over the years of being a passenger in what ever tuned up sports car he had I've seen over and over again, cars that had no business competing, trying to race him.

My pet peeve is the Grand Am/Grand Prix... they are always lurking about thinking they are the fastest thing on the road....


I can't wait for the nice weather, i'm so excited to take my baby to the track.

Hi there what year is your 335i?

what is it with the bmw 335i that every single car just wants to race with it. for the first time in my life i had about 4 cars who were trying to race with me. the first one was a buick it tried and i tried i was driving at 125km/h when the buick driver went side by side with me and asked me if i wanted to give my car a test kind of look. i was trying to ignore the driver but he kept on speeding up and slowing down and stayed on my side. so i said i will give is a go. i am only driving an AT with steptronic so i was just doing manual with this guy and i was hitting 160 with no freaking effort! what the heck i barely put any weight on the pedal and i just left the buick. second was the acura that guy was just insane i think he was 200 km/h and i didn't even bother. but the prick with an infinit q45 was dick head. he cuts me off out of nowhere then he went on my side then he cuts me off again. well i was thinking i only live once so i went to steptronic placed it on third gear, then i went way pass him and beat him the traffic light exit of the allen road and he can't even look me straight in the eye when i waited for him in the traffic light.

I don't know what is it with this bimmer. and I was thinking shit it's not even an M3 and thsi car is brining out the demon in me. mind you my car is all stock and no MODS but boy everytime i push that pedal i feel like i'm going to slip through the seat with so much torque and the breakign power is just amazing from 180 km/h to 80 km/h instantaneously.

i don't know if i will drive the beast again i'm just saying it bring out the demon in me.

once again street racing is illegal but boy it was freaking fun!

My 335i is a 2007. Right now she's got just over 80K but i picked her up from Town and Country BMW with a certified series warranty. I paid 40K Cash on a great deal from their Sales Manager Marko... The whole experience was terrific. I don't think i'll ever go anywhere else now, i'm a bimmerchik for life.

you can't go wrong with the 335i. make sure you check the HPFP history

You will also love this car the most on corners it's almost defying the laws of physics. it's just awesome the way it slingshots from a tight corner going to a straight line. merging in the hwy is the most fun!!! My friend made the best comment about my 335i when we were driving by saying. Wow! you can hear and feel the cars power just waiting to explode. Even as a passenger he said he can feel that the car is asking to be pushed more and that driving at 130 km/h is like asking Usain bolt join a walkathon instead. power gets addictive though. paddle shifters are ok. you'll end up using the steptronic anyway in traffic lights.

also pretty awesome is when coming from a stop sign and merging into traffic or just crossing a four lane street.

Just pure amazing

The High Pressure fuel pump is one of the main weakness of the car. This is one thing you have to anticipate with the 335i sadly no matter how amazing it is. it has this one weakness. there is a new version enging coming out and it's called N55 the current one is N54. anyway the symptoms are limp mode and lost of power. but it seems more prevalent in US compared to Canada and Europe but it still happens.

as for the price we need to know how many Kilometers.

When i was driving my accord in the hwy i stayed at 115 to 125 the most and i was thinking to myself keep it safe and keep it neutral we will still get there. now that i have the 335i i'm always thinking i'm wondering if i can push it harder and if there are any cops around. and boy i keep looking for those sharp merging corners in the highway because before with my accord i always go past the white guiding lines. with my bimmer i always edge the line and stay with it on top speed. i will go to the track and enjoy more in a more controled environment.

Yes it will be replaced under warranty. Just want to give you a heads up. 52,000 km is kind of high. how much is he offering you for it? make sure the CPO warranty covers the pump. you know there is a 335d that has more torque and some people claim has no HPFP issue.

CPO stands for? See thats the thing I can not find a 335i with less KM if I do I do not want to pay $40 or more for it. Plus the previous owner babied his 335i from what I can see. HPFP issue is that with all year and makes of 335i? Another thing do all 335i come witha Twin Tubro engine?

CPO =certified preowned since you are getting it from a dealer chances are it will be there iwll be extra coverage basically. hpfp affects every year model.
