    Hi everyone,

    I've just arranged a deal to px my Boxster S against a 335i SE which I pick up on Saturday. I've signed up here to find out more about these cars and modifying them.

    hello fella, many welcomes.

    Coming from an S is an interesting change, you had enough of it or just fancy a change?

    I think the Boxster S is a great car but I wasn't getting enough use out of it. Due to changing my wife's car to something economical for commuting it was relegated to weekend usage but as we like to take our Westie out with is we really needed more space. The 335i is a compromise for me but one I'm happy with. I'm also looking forward to having a car with more tuning potential as that's something I missed from previous cars when owning the Boxster.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I picked the car up on Saturday and I'm really pleased it so far. These engines really are very good and I really like the car as a whole. It certainly feels to be of higher quality inside than the Boxster too.

    The compromise isn't the performance as I think it's already quicker in a straight line (although I will still probably go for an exhaust and a remap). I'm also happy with the cornering grip, my only niggle so far is the lack of traction in 1st and 2nd. Can this be improved significantly by changing to non-RFT's such as Goodyear F1 Asymetrics like I had on the Boxster? If there's a dramatic improvement to be had by dumping the RFT's then I'd do it but if it's only a minor improvement I'd probably just stick with the RFT's for convenience.
