Thats some garage! A perfect daily drive coupled with an M6 for those weekend fun drives (Or is it vise versa ). What else is there???

Dude, your cars looks pretty sweet. Being really close to each other, you and Mike could go for long drives on those californian twisties! Do upload more pics of your rides and write some more details about your experience with BMW and their modifications. Good luck and keep revving those German horses.

Wish the 335i was available in India! This car is a legend when it comes to handling.

Nice car choice Mike!

You should get on e90post.com as well (if you aren't already). I actually picked the 335i over the M3 as I wanted a somewhat fuel efficient daily driver. The 335i is way more torquey and more fun on the streets. For a more menacing weekend, it's definitely the M6

Yeah, M6 is pretty much set for the weekends. It averages 13.6 miles to the gallon which is really horrible And thats with the M mode turned off!

The 335i handles really well with the suspension upgrades, but I'm still thinking of doing front & rear sway bars, M3 Control Arms, M3 Tension Rods and M3 sub frame bushings. Then I will be done with suspension mods for the car

There are a few other cars:
Toyota MR2 Spyder that I hope to build for track some day soon.
Mercedes E350 daily driver for the parents.
Acura TSX for the wife (getting traded in soon for an X5M, Porsche Cayenne Turbo OR a Porsche Panamera Turbo....not sure which one yet).
Infinite QX4 SUV.

Thanks!! I'll upload more pics once the M6 has some mods that I need to get installed. I'll park both cars together and take some pics. Here are some I had taken with my phone a little while back when I had just gotten the wheels installed. However these are ones BEFORE I got the KW V3 Coilovers installed (just this last weekend):

True that. Thanks the absolutely brilliant Turbo setup, 335i feels much more drivable and fun on streets compared to E90 M3.

The upgrade will definately showcase the handling improvements on a track, however I have this feeling the stock suspension should be good enough for regular street use. Keep us posted about your observations.

Sweet. You do have a thing or two for Japanese and Germans! Lets put in some Italians in the equation.

You aren't kidding when you say Cayenne/Panamera Turbo for wifey? If you ask me honestly, you should get her a nice Alfa Romeo (Something like 159) unless you really require a big SUV or a cross-over! Alfa will be unique too as there aren't many around; plus the car itself is a beauty to behold. For that power greediness, you have the M, right! Or even better, how about a *pre-worshipped* Ferrari F430! There are many sweet deals out there since the 458 Italia is the current buzz in the town. Here is a pic of 159 off Wikipedia. F430, we all know about it! The Perfect Ferrari.

Good luck mate and will be looking forward to more pictures and details of your rides.

Ace

I am already on e90post.. You should check out this drag race event in san diego. Its not a competition, its just for fun. Its a 1/8 mile drag and you can race all nite long for a fee of 30 bucks. That is if your into racing. the next event is on 23rd of this month. Bring a helmet if you decide to come. racelegal.com

And about the suspension, i dont think you need any upgrades if you already have a sports package. Its stiff enough to handle enough torque through the corners.i mean the car handles like a go cart as it is.

I am aware of it, Mike. And thats why I insist on Alfas being unique and true head turners.
