Hey Kay,

I can swear I saw one of these last week and still thought it was a 6 series with a different back side. These do look pretty good! Where did you drive these? Was it on the track? Most important, how does it go/sound?
Resistance is not futile; it is voltage divided by current (R=V/I)

Eish, never saw your reply until now!

I was lucky enough to look after her all weekend, so I got to do plenty of driving in different conditions. It was a display vehicle for an event at Zwartkops Raceway, unfortunately it was limited to just looking pretty :) It goes like a bat out of hell, with amazing comfort to boot. It's a stunner in person - quite a bit different from the normal 3 Series sedan. I had an opportunity to err, "test it" against an E46 M3 - and the 335i was edging ahead slightly up until about 160 km/h when I backed off. The noise the engine makes is fabulous too - you can hear the turbos but they don't mask the classic inline-6 noise. You do have to open some windows to hear it, it's a very isolated car otherwise. Summary: fantastic cruiser with super power :)

OK! I've had it! I don't give anymore Kharma. Kharma should work in mysterious ways...

Yes, as a matter of fact I did, I changed my mind, I'd like one like that too!

The exif on these pics were just too much of a coincidence, I mean how many Kay's with a K100D that used to have a Panny can there be...

Could have sworn you had an FZ-50 or 30 or 5 or 3 or something at the first Audiofest... but yes I might be mistaken...

No, I think it was Alex who was shooting with a silver Panny? Had no cam on me (kicks oneself) at the first fest :)

Strange, but then I had very little interest past the mik&druk at the time... so I guess it's no wonder...
