Wow..this is what we call it as upgrade. No doubt 27L for a high line is a good deal.
Is it a demo vehicle?
I wonder you chipped in so fast. Have a great time.

Congrats! Your car looks gorgeous and it's really a very good deal at 27L. Would love to see pictures of the car after the mod.

Well thanks for the comments . well it was a demo car without reg. so i could register it in my name. Car is in near showroom condition. I did a exterior waxing and interior detailing and that did the trick.

Hey buddy amazing vehicle. Love the 3 series, and thumbs up for the superchips job.

And NO OFFENCE but the first photo is not a photo of the dials of your car!!
i have had that picture as my desktop wallpaper for months.

these are the dials of a 335i
here is the link to the image uploaded on carwalls.com

Almost everyday, I see your car. It looks superb.

Few questions.
Is the beemer better than your peted superb (acceleration wise)?
How much did the swift sell for?
Sold the Borbet LV's and koni FSD too?

Congrats Nirmal,

What an awsome buy. This looks amazing. In fact it will be my sedan in future as well.

Just few question

1. How much did engine mod cost if I go for it when i Buy.
2. I will be more intersted in Electronic suspension, how much will that cost ( dream come true for me as well)
3. Is it better to buy 3series & modd it or go for 5 series which is more VFM

Thanks for that. Wanted it as my wallpaper too. There's a flaw though. The dials are labeled under the 335i gallery but it reads Diesel above the fuel gauge !!

superveloce, well you are correct. That's not my car's dials and neither it is a 335i . It is from a 335d .

SamtheLeo

the remap cost me 36k with the bluefin device ( i had to bargain with N1 racing)
The suspension will set u back by 2 lakhs but is worth every penny u spent because it behaves more like M3 rather than 3 series . it is much more comfortable than stock car as well as the damping is in a different league. u need an expert to fix it for you as it is very complicated installation an takes one whole day. well between 3 nad 5 series it is a question of personal taste and your budget as well. if i had the money i would buy a 530d but not 520d.
