Default Dad got a brand new toy...(now with pics)

I spoke to my dad today... He picked up his 2007 BMW 335i today. I haven't seen it yet but I'll post pics when I take them. If should rip.... It'* a 300hp 3.0 liter twin turbo 6 with a 6 speed tranny. The car is black on black(I think). Here'* a stock photo....

Natural balance and power delivery would be two things, I guess. But a lot of automakers (BMW included I believe) are starting to stray away from the I6 and go the V6 route because nowadays engine technology has gotten up to par such that the differences between the two are becoming much more blurred.

I love me my inline-sixes.

Wonder how long until my brother dumps his M5 or 330ci for one of those.
If you guys are calling shotgun, blitz, etc... don't forget I'm in the drivers seat!!!

BMW 335

I hear those are held back A LOT... Two Turbos, good sized 6 cyl (balanced well) and built well... only 300 HP? The old M3 had 333... Chips and tuning go a long way.
