New to BMW

Hi all,

Just picked up a '10 335xi last week, converted from a much overused '98 Civic.

Had lot's of fun with the little four banger but decided it may be time to grow up (also before I'm left stranded on the side of the road someday). Looking forward to some good years with the new ride!

Pre-thank you to everyone for their future help and guidance

- John

Yea I had to get used to the power difference the first few days. I did a swap in the Civic and power isn't low but the difference (and smoothness) of the 335 is like night and day! The only part that kills me right now is losing ~3L/100km on the mileage

Yep, there's a price for that power!
