    Got my own E90: 335d

    Picked it up this morning. Thing is way fast (a lot faster than my '01 330xi): 75-95 in no time, not over 3,000rpm.

    Sport, Premium, Cold Weather, Cool Water Blue, tan leather interior, for those that haven't seen previous posts about what I was getting.

    Now I can run with my son's 335i.

    Nice...I like those wheels. Although I ...

    prefer the overall look of the E46 sedan and coupe, I much prefer the ride and drive of the E90/92. Once I got in and drove our 335i Coupe I knew it was going home with us. Through the first 25K miles I've had fewer issues with my E92 than with either of my E46 sedans. I hope that lasts. Great choice...You'll love that car.

    It definitely rides firmer than my '01 330xi - run-flats and 18" sport package wheels are much "sportier". I do like the wheels; they're not as "common" as some of the others.

    It's currently parked in the garage next to my son's Monaco Blue/Black leather 335i Coupe. He likes my lighter colors better - but then he bought used and had to take what he could find to get the manual tranny.

    Funny thing; even though it's essentially the same block, and both are turbo-charged, things are on different sides of the engine compartment!

    There's a boat-load of hardware bolted to that...

    engine and makes it a real stump puller. Great fuel mileage is a real bonus
    in case you hadn't seen the engine OUT of the car

    Son's 335i vs 335d comparison

    As I was out of the country, my son got to drive it.

    Bluewater was a GREAT color choice!

    I had a couple of second thoughts about the color, since it often appears washed-out in the commercials that BMW is running on TV. But, when my son came around the corner at SeaTac Tuesday to pick us up, I saw the car immediately. It's very unusual and without the front license plate (that unfortunately will have to change) it was very noticeable in the crowd.

    BTW, Black and grey are the colors in Europe. They're really missing things by choosing only them.
