Default Hello, my new car ...

Hey guys,

I know it's been a while since I've been on here, but after I graduated from the University of Oregon and moved up to Seattle I haven't been coming here as much :[ After the lease on my 335i ended I got a new car and thought I'd share it with you guys ... Feel free to comment on anything and ask any questions!

Got my car bone stock in the first week of September with 15,000 miles. I've since put on 5,000 miles and have done some light modding. When I was "done" I had a photographer friend take some pictures of it for me. NOTE: I DID NOT TAKE THE PICTURES; all photography credits should go to Dale Tu of Dale Tu Photography.

You got the right color

The car looks really nice. I think BMW have done a good job with the M version. Were those photos taken at one of the Iron Horse Trail parking lots? It looks a lot like the one near Snoqualmie.

Hi David,

Nice!

Now how about telling us about the driving experience. How does it compare to the S?

Is it the "$30,000 mistake"?

Torque?

What kind of results have you had with the laser jammer?


Thanks for showing us the pictures!

Congrats on the new car!

I've seen a M couple around in Beaverton (white I think), it looks awesome zigzaging up 217 north.

These pix were taken at Snoqualmie, but I'm not sure the name of the parking lot he was shooting it at.

Ah, yes, that's the one! The background of picture 9 was strikingly familiar.

You were at one of the parking lots for the Iron Horse Trail State Park. They've taken an old abandoned railroad line, Milwaukee Road I believe (Larry can correct me, I'm sure), and turned it into a 'linear park' for foot and bicycle traffic. Several of these have been showing up across the States. It's a great idea.

Your car looks great - I'm worried the Z4, specifically in M trim, will be taking S owners away from our group
