    Fredo's 2012 335i project

    Back in Oct-2016 I had a loaner 2015 320i for some days. I liked it, and quietly started to look for a F30 328i. My main requirements were: red / sports package / NAV / comfort access / backup camera. I had an Autotrader search for 2012+ / 328i but very few came back within my budget. Just for fun, one day I decided to expand the search to 335i and a 2012 showed in Houston with 76k miles and good service records in Carfax. It satisfied my criteria and had these goodies too:

    sun-blinds (rear glass and doors)
    pdc (park distance control)
    surround view
    head-up display
    paddle shifters

    I was thinking about it for some days and decided to check it out on May 27th. My nephew took me over there (Volvo dealer). Thanks to the iDrive I noticed the brakes were due very soon, in 2k miles. The dealer has a no-haggle policy but the deal was still good for me. I pulled the trigger and came back to Austin the same day (3 hours drive). The car is very clean in and out. It feels very solid and responds very well.

    Just in case, I bought an extended warranty. It's from Route 66, the Easy Street plan. My Indy recommended it, they have worked with that company before without issues. The warranty covers 4 years / 48k miles. It's bumper to bumper, just like a new car warranty.

    Here are some pics from the dealer.
