2007 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Canít be too harsh on critique with so much to praise on performance. Low end torque is all I need. With steering that turns like a sticky roller coaster, a warp drive tranny alone in its own universe, and all the speed you need, This thing is really the best. But sacrifice for the privilege. True cost to own is double that of a Mini and you must be able to drop it off at the dealer regularly without a grimace. I have been in for repair a few times and will go back again while trying to remain calm. After owning for 6 months, the inconvenience is now starting to outweigh the fading thrill.


Best Features

I mind meld with this thing.


Worst Features

More choices in color, tires, electronics.

2007 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I agree with all the other positive statements. Things I didn't like were 1) the runflats and the fact that the car does not come with a spare or a jack kit. 2) My car was built in 4/2007 and they were still using a fuel pump made by Seimens. Many Seimens fuel pumps have failed and mine is having symptoms of failure (long crank starts 4-5 seconds). BMW has not issued a recall and is handling the issue on a case by case basis. It is assumed that all new cars now have the improved fuel pump made by bosch although BMW won't confirm the date they made the switch.


Best Features

Engine performance and easy performance modifications. Handling is excellent. Get rid of the run flats, buy a jack kit and you will drop quite a few pounds off the vehicle.


Worst Features

BMW should have handled the fuel pump issue better. All cars should come with a spare and jack kit. Runflats are heavy and do not handle as well.

2007 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Always wanted a BMW 3-series with 6-speed manual. Fell in love with the 2007 coupe, but way past that now. Underwhelming acceleration and torque below 2700 RPM. Tranny has been big disappointment. Maddening HVAC and radio controls. Poorly shaped and sized storage cubbies. Can't see instrument lights with sunglasses. Under 3K miles had to replace driveshaft. At 4K, weird vibration in clutch pedal. Dealer diagnosed bad throwout bearing and replaced whole clutch. The vibration got worse! Now they tell me it'll "break-in" after 10-15K miles. It's hard to enjoy my "driver's car" when my clutch foot is tingling, and I'm being tortured by diabolically illogical controls and wretched ergonomics.


Best Features

Handling, seats, looks.


Worst Features

Clutch, controls, instrument panel lighting, heating/cooling, storage, little things.

Review

After having my car for only 4 months, the seat belt arm broke. It took 4 visits to the dealership until they finally fixed the problem. When my car was 10 months old, the windshield wiper fluid pump stops working. It took 2 visits and they kept it in the shop for a total of 3 days until the realized there was a huge air bubble. It was very annoying that these little repairs take so many visits and time to be repaired. Every now and then my SOS doesn't work, which causes my bluetooth to malfunction. Other than that, the car drives well and I still like the slick look.


Best Features

My red leather interior.


Worst Features

Get rid of the seat belt arm.

2007 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

My second 3-series BMW after having the thrill of an '05 Viper (nothing compares to that beast). The 335 is a blast to drive and fun to show off. Why spend 20k extra for the new M3. Will do 0-60 is about 5 seconds with a great engine sound. Great interior quality.


Best Features

Instant power w/o any turbo lag.


Worst Features

The stupid iDrive is hard to use. Zero trunk space for golf clubs. The Viper could hold a full bag w/o taking the driver out. The 335 will hold one bag if you remove the driver. The dash pop out cup holder is a joke. Run flat tire repair for one nail = 434.00. Can't repair a run flat.
