>> So you love a BMW 335i, but it's a little too common for you. You think you're a little race car driver. But of course the M3, maybe that's a little too much of a commitment or you know. Here is the antidote or the middle ground I guess, the 335i S, in between the i's performance and the M's performance. This car has a bit of a track flavor to it. Not like a Porsche RS America where they've stripped it and leaned it out. It does have more respectable specs on paper. The three liter, twin turbo inline six from the 335i is under the hood. But software tweaks have upped the horsepower to 320 from 300, bumped up the torque to 332 and given it the ability to do a burst of torque up to 370 foot pounds. That's a bit of a head snapper. There's a heavy duty cooling system to go with that up rated motor or extra flogged motor is the way I'd put it. You also have a choice of transmission, six speed manual, thank you or a seven speed DCT, dual clutch automated manual. Ways to spot this vehicle, aside from the badge obviously, would include these wheels with a special Ferric finish, the blackout treatment on the dual kidney grill and matching blackout pipes in the rear. Now inside, a lot of pretty garden variety 335i stuff, that's not a bad thing but you will see an M sport wheel, sport seats, M door seals down there, a little bit of a different finish on the dash. Sunroof, it's standard but because this car is track purpose, there is a sunroof delete for weight savings and center of gravity management. Comes out a little later on this year for about $50,000, slotting between the i and the M3.
