    BMW 335D M Sport
  1. 35d engines

    Does anyone know the difference between the 2005 272 bhp 535d engine, the 2006 286bhp 335d engine and the 2008 X5 SD 286bhp engine?
  2. S3 Navigation

    I am swapping the 335d for an S3 Sportback Stronic and wonder if anyone has any experience of the BMW navigation professional compared to the Audi system in the S3? Do you think navigation is needed on this car for resale sake? Any thoughts appreciated.

  11. 335D M Sport Touring

    What wheels are on it?
  12. It's ordered

    You miss the point. I had a remapped S3 before and an R32 so i know the differences in the engine. I am saying that the TTC doesnt suit me as an overall package (not the engine) but the S3 would. I loved the car but as a toy not my every day car. Roll on the Stronic S3.
  13. It's ordered

    Tried a TTC 3.2 DSG this weekend to get an idea of what the TTS would be like and although it is a great car, it cant match the remapped 335d as an overall package I'm afraid......
  14. It's ordered

    Only stumbling block for me and the remap will be the S-Tronic box I suppose....

    I agree, I love my 335d but for me I have always missed the 4wd and all weather traction I had in the s3's and R32 and more sensation of speed would be great. I have fond memories of my old remapped s3's and will remember this 335d as a very fast car but a little clinical if you know what i mean.
