2007 BMW 3 Series 335xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Extremely slow steering for a bmw. It takes so much cranking of the wheel just to make a simple turn, and on top of that the effort is really heavy. And they don't offer active steering in xi models. The bridgestone runflats are joke. A fairly quick stop will make them slide. Starting from a stop is jarring. Press the gas in automatic mode and it will first pause for a while and then buck and jerk while it decides if it should continue in second gear or downshift to first. It goes through coolant and oil pretty quickly. Much faster than scheduled maintenance happens. Oh, and forget about spirited driving without sports package..there is NO seat bolstering whatsoever.
Looks. Brand. Acceleration at any rpm is great. Fast shifting automatic.
Windows up using remote. Remote start. Faster steering (by a lot). Active steering in xi models. Bolstering in non-sports package seats. Tougher front windshield that would resist cracks. Headlight washers should be in lamp not bumper. Improve the automatic trans. shifting program.
