Great Sports Car Alternative

2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I've driven this car for 2 years and have nothing but accolades for it. the 335i is a fantastic looking car with compliments galore. Having owned a Honda s2000 sports car, I know the difference between a blue blood and a true blood. What the 335i offers is power with flat-out speed and agility to make the quick dodge or turn if you need it. The comfort for two is plush with every convenience. This is a car you drive cross-country to an art show in SF and feel you are a part of the rich and famous. Of course, with a new $ tag of close to $70k with all the do- dads, you are. However, it is not a ultra nimble S2000, so sticking to a super tight turn with the peddle to the metal is not advised.
The 335i is pleasure to drive with the top down through the country side or winding your way along a tree lined mountain highway highway . The power and agility you have at your fingertips are awesome and combined with every creature comfort and plush seating, you have a luxurious sports car.
Although the 335i is primarily a two person luxury sports car, it does have backseats which are spartan but usable for short trips. Making them plusher would be a significant improvement. Forget the rough riding run-flats, replace them with a ultra contract all season vzw tire and flat tire kit.
