2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
After almost 2 years behind the wheel, I have to say new exterior design is best in its class. Most people will say the best thing about the 335i is the power but I have to add that its brakes are equally as superb. The twin-turbo engine gives 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds then you realize you are way above the speed limit. Rear seating lacks leg room but any who buys the 3-series coupe for its leg room? I've heard enough complaints out there about the infamous iDrive but who cares if you can simply use your voice to control everything? I don't recommend getting the beige interior as it gets dirty too easily. All in all, this is one fine piece of German engineering. 7 out of 10 overall.
Fluidity in the exterior design. Braking. Twin turbo engine and its torque. Cornering ability. Comfort access. Self-timed hot air release from cabin. Voice commands. Bluetooth.
BMW needs to redesign its cup-holder locations and size. Seat belt arm rattles after it retracts. Why does the "passenger airbag off button" only lights up when carrying a passenger? Constantly need software update. Light-colored interior gets dirty way too easily. Only 19-20 mpg locally.
