Oh wow, yeah, I remember that cruise. IIRC, marcus was on that run too.

The supercharger is holding up well, but I think my 5AT is getting shaky. I may go for a built 5AT in the new year. If I do, then I may have a shiny vortech for sale shortly afterwards...

That's faster than a 6MT 335i and still for less money. Congrats! http://www.mpt.org/motorweek/reviews/rt2624b.shtml
This 6-speed manual sedan spooled up to 60 mile-per-hour in a quick 5.3 seconds. The quarter-mile pass ended in 13.7 seconds at 103 miles-per-hour.

That's a tenth quicker to 60 mph than was the slightly lighter 335i coupe, an advantage the sedan held through the quarter-mile (13.5 seconds at 106 mph).

Did you just roll your eyes at me? If you roll your eyes at me again I'll have you removed. It's not a big deal. You think just because your 335i lease ended and you bought a 370z you can come in here and roll your eyes at me? This my house! And this is a quarter miles thread and I can post the ****ty time of the stock 335i you had. You know... the one with the $3800 injectors that go out, $30 per spark plug without labor, leaking wastegates, $700 fuel pump that goes out, $500 electric water pump with a plastic impeller that leaks at 50k miles, an overwhelmed charging system because too many electric accesories drain the battery.

Watch yourself okay? 335i... give me a break.

Jealous much. 9 out of 10 G owners happily trade their cars for a 335i. Completely different level of a car. Not to take at all what Dsskyline has gotten out of his car, but price for price when new, Dsskyline has probably over $6000 in parts/labor to get his car to run 13.1s. It takes a $500 inline boost increaser to get a 335 into the 12s and deep 12s on a quick track. Yeah, the N54s have fuel pump issues, but that recall has been issued. The N55 single turbo 335 is proving to be even better.

BTW, that 335 in the video on big ghetto fabulous rims bogged the hell off the line, but still ended up trapping 106mph which matched the lighter and much more modified flatulent Z. Remove the ghetto rims and launch the thing right and it's going a lot quicker and faster.

Andrei, you're quite a character

The 335 is a great car, but it has its issues.

The one that bothers me the most is carbon buildup as a result of its DI system.

When I say carbon I mean the accumulation of recirculated oil/crap that builds up on the intake valves since fuel doesn't wash over them in most DI engines (Lexus being an exception, but even then FI might only be used when the car is cold).

This seems to be an issue for many manufactures who took a gamble with half-backed DI applications, not just BMW.

Here's a thread about it (lots of pics):
http://www.nagtroc.org/forums/index....6&#entry553536



Let's not get off-topic.

Dsskyline's car is fast as hell. What an accomplishment!

Hey kiddo read carefully....

1. You have to have atleast one drag race under your belt to post here.
2. If you have, then obviously you dont have the brain capacity to understand what drag racing is, since you post whatever information your brain first shoots out without analyzing anything.
3. If you havent, either just read and learn or GTFO.
4. My 335 lease hasn't ended, stop assuming ****. The reason i went back with nissan is one of those things that your brain wouldn't able to process.
5. Don't talk about people getting removed, it might byte you in the a$$ like others..
6. LMAO on your last part of your post.....

It's just the autoxer in me that sees when rims are 2" two big for overall performance, I brand the wheels as "ghetto". I'm sure the wheels/tires on the 335 are probably total half the value of my 03 sedan

^ i get you man. and to be honest, i've felt a little weird going to the street legals with my 20" cast wheels. the way i see it, even though performance is suffering, its nice to know how the car will do exactly as its driven on the street. i do want to get a decent pair of 19s I can run outback with DRs - ugh, more money

YOU read... Your own posts:

I can count on my 2 hands how many times i went WOT with 25k on the car. My G saw rapage from day one all the way to 70k miles when it finally had a gasket leak near the spark plugs.

The 50/50 distribution was a old marketing trick that makes the customer think there is something special about the car. Porsche, which is known to produce the most incredible handling cars, has 60-40, 70-30 weight distribution. Z/G are much easier to slide and not crash aside from the E36 Ms.

The ultimate driving machine was in the 90s and early 2000s.
