Tune, down pipe, intake = 130hp gain. The beauty of having a turbo motor

My cousin just got his bought back. Seems to be a recurring theme with the x35i motors and even more so the 335 M-Sports

Beware of the high pressure fuel pumps in those cars... They are very notorious for going out early... I had two go out in my 135i within the first 30k miles. Nice car though.

Congrats! She is a beauty . Sedan though? Going from such a raw sports car to a four door seems like quite a jump. The 335i M's are fairly fun to drive.

They are beautiful cars. This is the mrs's. Tune, DP, and Intake and it will demolish a stock Z. This one is Xdrive and can on occasion spin all the tires leaving the line.

Thanks everyone.

The HPFP issues are mostly resolved now, they were huge issues in the N54 twin turbo motors, mine is the N55 single turbo. It's brand new so I have plenty of time for the warranty and I think they increased the warranty on those to 70k or 100k if I remember correctly.

It was a huge jump going from a 2 seater roadster to a 5 seater sedan but it's actually not as big of a difference as you may think since the 335i has lots of power, specially low end torque. Also never had a sedan before, its a very nice middle ground of having both practicality and sportiness in one car.

I was always a BMW hater before getting this, but honestly like they say, once you try one of these youll know why they are such amazing cars.

Do you have the auto or a manual? We have the auto and did the apexi flash on it this spring and it is single handedly the best thing we done to that car to date. The way that car shifts now is amazing, and the rev matching downshifts make the car sound just that much better.
