My Seventh Bimmer
By rsur on
2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
This is the seventh BMW I have owned, my first one being a 1974 2002. And, it is by far the best one. The build is rock solid, the fit and finish first class, and the performance outstanding. The most attractive feature of this car (aside from its hard top convertible design) is its 3 liter twin turbo engine. With 300 lb ft of torque available all the way from 1500 to above 5000 rpm, this car accelerates like a sling shot. While the driving aspects are first class, the electronics leave something to be desired. The comfort access feature is supposed to allow keyless driving, but the Bluetooth does not work properly unless the key is in the slot.
Engine, transmission, convertible hard top, design, rock-solid chassis.
Comfort access software clearly needs improvement. Bluetooth won't work unless key is inserted. Electronics controlling glove box lock have a mind of their own.
