Regretabilly ive had to sell the beloved elise not getting time to get on track enough and piling daily road miles on.
Also expecting of first mini-ollie too
Bought a starship enterprise instead.
its a good sleeper even though it saus 335d on the back.
Sooo comfy and with that a little boring until flipped across into sport.
remap is on the cards. 720nm :/

On the subject of the 335, how does the gear box feel for sportiness when you knock it into sport? Presume you have the paddles in there as well? Obviously being a diesel it wont rev particularly high still, but do you get more control over when the gear change occurs?

When in sport its fantastic. Throttle response is alot more sensitive. The gearbox is good tbh. If anything, I change earlier when in sport than when in auto sport as the torque just gets you going so fast.
Newsflash, remap just booked in. 340hp and 720nm!
Had another scan this morning too. Cant believe how much our little people move around

"Ill leave this one alone"

I tested a 2013 330D the other week and the torque of the thing was incredible - almost undriveable in the wet - it was so easy to break traction leaving roundabouts etc.
How do you think the 335D would cope on a track? Do you think you'd run out of revs too easily?
