My current choice of weapons? The BMW F31 335i, tuned to exactly how I want it.
I’ve been a BMW nut since being a young lad. I have very old memories of cars so I think I’ve genuinely been interested in motors since birth!
Growing up my parents owned a BMW e24 635csi. Beautiful car. It does make me wonder if that’s where my crazy obsession with BMWs stemmed from!
I didn’t start with a BMW, I actually started in a Fiat uno and a Volvo 440, but then I was only 16! It didn’t stop me modifying the cars though. It paved the way for my future of motoring.
Previous and current cars
When I say that I’ve had my fair share of cars over the years, it’s safe to say I’m not exaggerating.
Along with my current F31 335i, I also own an e31 840ci, a F21 120d and a Fiesta Zetec S TDCI as a daily drive.
Although I’m now on my 88th BMW… yes you read that right, I have also owned other makes and models.
The highlights would be a Nissan Pulsar GTiR, Nissan 200sx and a Fiesta RS Turbo to name but a few.
Always end up back at BMW though. I can’t help but feed the addiction. I’ve had modified and standard examples of many of the models and engine variants.
One that stays in my mind is the e34 535i I previously owned. I thought it seemed a good idea to slap a nice big turbo on it with a straight pipe and no back boxes. Fond memories!
My current F31 BMW 335i
I’ve got a lot of love for my current BMW F31 335i. The fact it is so rare only helps that case. With only around 100 in this country, it’s not a motor that is seen too often. Basically an estate with a M2 engine thrown in it.
My 335i benefits from having approx 440bhp so she definitely doesn’t hang around. This is all courtesy of the modifications I have done to it.
Whilst 440bhp may seem ample, there always room for more!
That’s where the future planned high pressure fuel pump and a pure stage 2 turbo will come in handy. Seeing me to approx 600bhp! I think that should just about do me.
- Approx 440bhp
- K&N panel filter
- Performance exhaust
- M4 spark plugs
- MHD stage 2+ software
- Eibach spring
- M3 Wheel set up
- M performance kit
- Carbon fibre accessories
