Well just traded my 09 335i on a 14 535i. I get to pick it up on Tuesday. I hope I made a wise decision. Lol, I know I fit in it a little better. So that's a plus.

Congrats on the Pickup! I am curious to know what you think about the power of the N55 vs the N54.
I purchased a 2010 535i because I was really fond of the N54 and I did not fit in the 335 either.

What do you guys mean exactly you can't fit?
Not sure I understand.

You open the car door and you can't fit through the opening and sit down in the seat?

Talking about the sports seats. I'm 6'1" 280 lbs and those side bolster and my love handles did get along. I did get the 535 with the m package and suspension but opted out of the seats. I got the multi(20) function seats.

I'll have to get back to you about the performance. I test drove it but I didn't dog it out. I don't get to pick it up until Tuesday. So I will be driving the crap out of this 335 until than

I am 5'11" and 250 lbs. I have to put the seats in the 335 pretty far back to be comfortable. Unfortunately, that made my kids extremely uncomfortable.

Really happy with the E60 though.

Well I don't know if it's because it's a new car. But it's no where as fast as my 09 335i was off the line or even rolling from say 60 mph. But of course this is a larger car as well. I keep telling myself I hope bmw just puts a safety feature on the motor(reducing the power) tell it's broken in.

Damn! I did not realize that the F10 weighed that much more than the E60 (which only weighs about 100 lbs more than the 335)

Any plans for a JB4?

Well, this may be my goodbye. I've been very disappointed with this car. I really miss my 09 335. This car has no power, the brakes suck and the suspension is horrible. The car feels like you are riding on steel wheels. And there's a thumping noise coming from the rear (dealership sayes nothing's wrong). So anyways going to look at some mustangs tomorrow, maybe even a gt500.

Don't go blue oval. Look at a 2013 335is or an E9x M3

Another disappointment! Is N55 that bad compared to N54?
