BMW 335i Coupe

It was a few months ago when I started to have a liking for sports cars. I thought the Porsche series was my number one favourite but the price tag was hovering around RM1,000,000 a piece! Then a friend of mine got a Nissan Fairlady 350Z (RM385,000 brand new, fully imported) and it was really a damn cool sports car. But another friend suggested that the Nissan GT-R is a far better sports performance car than the Fairlady.

Last week, while shooting a wedding dinner with Babyboss photographer Brian Lee, he suggested why not consider the BMW 3-series coupe range! I went to the website and checked out the BMW 335i Coupe and instantly fell in deep love with it. I even dashed over to the Auto Bavaria Bukit Bintang branch to see the car and to touch and smell its interior. Simply awesome. Felt so at home...a BMW.

I have always liked a BMW and have had two BMWs (a 318i and a 520i) in the last 10 over years. But somehow a BMW sports car never came to mind. Now, I am all set and aiming for the BMW 335i Coupe...a 2-door sports car.

6-cylinder in-line twin turbo engine with double-Vanos. 6-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic. Displacement at 2,979cc. Acceleration 0-100km/hr at 5.5 secs with top speed of 250km/hr. Light allow wheels Star Spoke 189 with mixed runflat tyres, front : 8J x 18", 225/40 R18, rear : 8.5J x 18", 255/35 R18.

On the road price at RM469,800 (brand new, fully imported from Germany, excluding insurance). Add another RM30,000 more for the "M-Sports" package, inclusive of 19" sports rims, "M-Sports" steering wheel and body kit.
