Congratulation with your new ride, I noticed you Gear Shift Knob is black, I being trying to find one on the black side for a while but with no luck, I don't like the M Performance Carbon Fiber Gear Shift Knob, do you by any chance know what one is yours?

it's the ceramic one. Part of the ceramic controls, include gear shift knob and radio / air con controls. It really gives a nice touch in person.

Very nice, I see you even got the B&O speakers, you think it's worth it over the HiFi pro?

Haven't heard the professional playing but as i had stated before, i really like to hear music in the car and i spend about 40 hours per month in the car, so i didn't want to compromise there. All i can say is that it sounds great.

Here's some more pics..

My 335d's lease is coming up in 12 months and it sounds like 535d will be coming to the US. Would you mind doing a little review or comparison if you ever drove a 335d? Thanks

Looks like you will be getting for now the 535d but only by name as it will have the 530d engine (it's a great engine tough but the extra turbo gives it the extra edge, and what an edge).
Performance wise i can't make a comparison, as i only drove an used 335d for a short test drive a year ago. But boy does the 535d performs

On the other matters i can say more as i had an 2007 e92 coupe for 3 years (320d). It's a completely different car, much much more car! more luxurious, more presence, better equipped, etc. just looses that sportiness that a 3 series gives (it's just a big car no matter the engine it has). That being said i'm just delighted with the car, i believe it to be a perfect blend of power, handling, comfort, luxury, etc.
Can't think of a car to replace it in the future (maybe just a sportscar for the weekend, as i do a lot a mileage and it's just perfect for it).
