2008 BMW 3 Series 335xi 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Previously had 99 and 03 6-cylinder 5- series. Wanted a car that was roughly the same size and with 4-wheel drive. The Coupe fit the bill since I don't need the room for the family at this point in my life. I was hesitant about going to a 3-series from the 5ers but after 4K miles I am extremely happy with the car. Not one issue has brought me back to the dealer. Performance all around rocks. Stereo is great. I can even get 29+ MPG doing 70 MPH. Sport seats are a must. Customization of features and access to features such as the iPod interface are very good through the iDrive interface. And come on - this car is a GREAT looking - people even stare at it at night!
Sport seats, iPod interface, traffic updates on nav, headlights, low-light red interior lighting on the door panels, Logic7 stereo, iDrive - yes iDrive. Sound of the exhaust/engine on acceleration, steering feel, high speed road manners.
Need to open inside door latch twice to open the doors. Make audible alarm standard.
