Best 3-Series Yet
By Eric on
2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
After coming from my previous E46 3-series, the current 3 feels like the best yet. The 335 engine is worth the extra money, hands-down. The power is truly amazing. It's slightly larger than previous 3s, but I suppose BMW is making room in the line-up for the 1-series. Fit and finish are impressive, as always. The car is literally an extension of your body when driving -- extremely intuitive and responsive. Some downsides include reliability (minor issues mainly), run flat tires, slow responsiveness of iDrive and Comfort Access at times, poorly placed window controls (too far away), and quirky voice recognition.
Powerful engine keeps pace with many sports cars, dynamic handling, SOS standard, very fun to drive, exceptional safety features, triple- blink turn signals, heat "at rest" feature, real-time traffic, and more!
Run flat tires should be optional -- No all-season RFT available as replacements for sport pkg... nobody makes them!! Horrible! Window controls are in a weird location -- put them back on the middle console. Typical 3-series drying/cracking door seals are STILL a problem and create creaking noise
