2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is everything wonderful about a BMW taken to an incredible level. The driving experience alone is a value at this price, and it's wrapped in what is finally a slam dunk iteration of the new Bangle styling. I can find a few ridiculously picky flaws with the interior, but what I can't find is any other car I'd rather have south of a $60K Cayman S. Judging from the stares and attention this car garners I'm not the only one.
Pin-you-back thrust of 300 lb-ft of torque. Nearly flawless driving dynamics and control. Gorgeous interior. Have you seen one in person?
One real, well placed cupholder would be nice. The console power-port could swivel 90 to the inside. At least the start feature of Comfort Access should be standard. I've dislocated the seatbelt arm twice already.
