Hello All! I bought my 05 325xi 6 years ago and joined BMWCCA, got my BMW065 plates. I put 140K on it for a total of 167K and she is still doing great. I've had some minor issues, nothing major, but it was time for a new car and I went through every single make of car and nothing compared to the feeling of driving a BMW. An M is just too impractical for me, so I dreamt of a 335i. I dreamt of going to Germany and picking one up, but life got in the way. So I finally found my car a few weeks ago; 12 335i x-drive, 6 speed manual (nothing feels like shifting threw the gears on a curvy road, kids have no idea what they are missing), M package, la-mons blue metallic, dark dakota leather and only 22K miles. I did my research and it seemed it was a military guys car and he just didn't get the chance to drive it. I picked it up last week in Va., I'm in Md. and just can't stop smiling! I have to get it inspected and hoping the tint is not too dark (its 35% in Md. and this is super close) and I'm looking for the dang wheel lock key ( I posted a pic in the wheels forums) but thats about the only issues. I look forward to reading, learning, hopefully helping others. I do my own oil change, brakes, every thing I can.
