2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I traded in my 2004 325i for the 335i sedan. It has the same, if not better, drive and handling as my 325i. However, the twin turbo engine is amazingly fast with abundant torque right off the line. It is a very exciting drive. I also think the interior materials are a step up from the E46 model (also very nice), with additional amenities such as Bluetooth and satellite radio. Very well done and worth the difference in cost from 328 if you can swing it.
Performance and smooth drive and handling. And the car looks great.
Make more items standard instead of an option. It is hard to believe a car with a base price of $38K doesn't even include leather standard.
