335i!

Well we just got the first 335i's in at work, and I must say they are impressive! I didn't really like the new 3 series sedan, but this coupe won me over right away. Plus it has a beautiful exhaust note.... Haven't driven one yet, hopefully soon though!

Yes, but in a different way. The 335i (like the sedan) will be smooth and refined, where as the outgoing M3 is high revving and jerky.

Expect the new M3 to be a monster...

I saw them when I went to pick up my 325cic about a week ago. It struck me immediately. Looks amazing.

I just wonder if they are going to continue to sell the coupes even after the new convertible is released? All other car makes consolidate into one model rather than selling a coupe and a model with a retractable hardtop.

Anyone know what BMW's plans on that are?

There's my next car! I wish. I think the 3 series are really cute. Even the sedans. The coupe looks very nice

The sedan is awesome. That was my first car this year lol. Just make sure you get it with leather, the leatherette sucks!

What is leatherette anyways? I mean what kind of animal makes leatherette? Kind of like hot dogs...I mean is there a hot dog animal or something that I never heard of? What kind of animal makes a hot dog?

Makes you think, doesn't it?

nope, not at all, alsorts of meat scraped off the abbatoir floor makes hotdogs!
i suppose leatherette is a fake leather matching real leather, i dont know, as for the styling of the new shape, dont really like it but i have a feeling itll grow on me, i do like the 7 series though

Yeah it is a fake leather :P And no there isn't a hot dog animal. I was just joking lol :x

The leatherette makes you sweat your ass off...because it's not real, so there are no pores in it to let air in and out...that's the reason I got a new car about 5 months later. But yeah, some seat covers should fix that I guess.

I can't link directly to the video, but on the right navigation panel there is a video about the new M3 coupe.

There's lots of videos there :p

The first one sold after the first test drive, its a 6 speed manual. We've had tons of customers coming in the shop during work to look at them being PDI'd. They are definitely going to sell!


Oh and yes I believe the next M4 will have an all new M designed 4 Litre V8.
