Well its not going to be anything like a miata. It will be the typical modern BMW. Heavy, boring, and **** poor everywhere but the highway.

It's a nice car and tuner friendly but hardly a "tuners dream" given the $40K price tag for a used one. I thought I read the 135s were going to be around $35K.

At that price you might as well get an STI or EVO if you're looking for a tuner dream.

FYI: Vishnu's solution for the 335 (active solutions, xede based piggy) is new this has not been used in other applications - he (Vish) called it ProCeed and this was used as Xede aparently doesn't play well with direct injection.. So flawless power - I seriously doubt it having used Vish based maps that were application specific with the Xede which has been out for a while now and used in Subys, Evos and Miatas (I run Xede in my '00). Heh tuners dream :-P if ya got a spare 30-40K laying around ;-) Dunno why but i keep hearing that BMRs can't handle boost w/o upgraded internals - would suck to blow your 40K toy up - new motor costs how much? Aside from the price I'm sure it'd be fun to tool around in..

Loki047 and Hustler.... I'm not talking about the car (335 or 135)... I never said anything who can afford the car or not, and really... I don't care. Who cares if you can or can not afford one of those?
And think what you want about Teckademics...
- they gayest car on the forum.... :gay:

yes, I judge them by the movies they make. What else should I judge them by? I have better things to do with my time than study some group of ricer youtube garbage. Yes, I want to sit around and make queer burnout movies and listen to queer techno, "spit game at ho's in tha club" and find the busiest street on the club strip and parade down it with a camera.

Do you blow these guys or something?

I'm tired of flaming now, and don't really want Philip to ban me, so I'm going to stfu now.

The rest of the post was offtopic so it got deleted by: Dhaark

I'll add one more thing... the 335i just sucks, the seats are uncomfortable, there is no head room and the position behind the steering wheel.... just makes you tired after an hour of driving...
Yes, I change my mind MANY times.... the 335 was nice if you drive it for around 15-20 mintues, but if you drive it for a few hours, they are really, really uncomfortable.

No one makes their own money. So if you living at home, your parents provide food, clothes, schooling and etc....


IN my life i have met one person who has truly made it on their own(ie moved out at 16 and never looked back) and had something to show for it.

Don't tell me to SHUT THE **** UP....
you don't know me so please don't speculate about me.... there is 1 (one) person on this forum that knows what I do for living.... and Loki, I pay for school, food, my cars, gas, insurance.... my parents just provide the house... They don't pay for anything that I do or buy.

I've deleted the previous posts.... because they were off topic and had no input regarding the 335i....

shut the **** up. Enjoy living in mommy's house. Let us know when you get a job, and become a man. If I had another $800 per month to burn on bullshit, I might be an internet fanboy too. I know enough about you from your posts to know that money doesn't go down the toilet, it goes to a glory hole at a bath house. So what about the $64,000 question...poz or neg?:gay:

STFU about your gay escapades before you get e-thugged. You better watch your mouth around here, or someone's going to horse-**** your soul. I have your ip. Better stay cool brah, or you'll get tazered...bro.

I got a call last night at midnight from my boss in the field office saying not to finish packing my bags yet...lol. So at this point, I'm just bankrolling student loans.

I think the 99 motor is at the machine shop now getting bored, balanced, tanked, 5-angled, extrude honed, whatevered, assymbled. So that will be done soon. I'll drive 2.5 hours to the house and put it together on the stand, set the rear end for the swap, and assymble what I can. Then, do one more track day in october, then take the car home and see what I can get done in terms of swappage in a few weekends.

Its good money, so I can't bitch.
