Was a fair review, uninteresting, but fair.

I had the VPC purposely omit installing the M Performance decals on my car so it's no big deal.

Does this mean that if you did NOT order the MPPK (power kit that is often referred to on the site) that you will NOT have the decals plastered onto the side panel below the doors?

I hope that is what it means.
I did not order the Power kit on my MSport 328d. And I do NOT feel the need for the decals. Just trying to avoid "Murphy's Law" from having them appear.

I realize some like them, but I do not wish to have them.

Yeah the decals only come with the MPPK.

Even if the VPC didn't get the memo and put mine on, I'd of just borrowed a friend's hairdryer and some adhesive remover and taken them off. Couldn't take anymore than 15 minutes. The dealer would've removed them too if I wanted I'm sure.

I watched it twice (yeah I know...a lot of time to waste). The first time I did it without sound. My observations were that for a car review, they sure spent a lot of time filming the reviewer talking and not the car itself. What is he an ex boy band member?! He looked bored. The car on the other hand looked sweet.

When I watched it with sound, he sounded like he might have hit the bar before filming...his speech was kind of slurred. Calling out the side skirt stickers was about the only time the guy had any life. Personally I wouldn't want those on my car, but I don't begrudge those who have it. To each his own.

I insisted that my dealer install the decals on my 2nd 335i xdrive car I am picking up this week.

FYI this guy has no idea what he is doing. The car has the PPK and therefore does not have 300hp. There are other things he completely has no clue about. Something about msport only being available on 335i, lol.

Lot of misinformation - not a great review overall.

My first comment here (I pick up my 335 Friday)...saw this last night and this guy seemed to be doing the review reluctantly and it showed!

Didn't have all the facts about the car, model or lineup! Seemed like he was on a blind date that he wanted to be over.

Unfortunately this is not much better than some of the sales associates I've encountered...

Did he seriously say that auto start/stop increases fuel economy by 30%?! I think he meant more like 3%...

I believe he quoted 30% city and 20% combined driving.

I stopped watching after he stated "300hp" followed by a shot of the MPPK.
