2008 BMW 3 Series 335xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I recently traded my 02 325i for an 08 335xi and must say, it's been a great decision.
This car is so smooth and quick and handles corners with ease.
There are several nice touches in technology added from the previous version that are really nice.
For example, the exterior LED door handle lights are very cool and useful.
I don't use the can chiller often in the console, but it's nice to have it for the long trips.
This car represents one of the best balances of luxury and handling I've had the pleasure of driving.
I'm just glad I bought this used as the original pricetag is just out of my reach.

For the life of me, i wish the engineers would find a way to incorporate a useful cup holder for the driver!
I also wish they wouldn't require the key fob to be placed in the slot in order to start the vehicle (they make you spend an extra $500 just to enjoy that "convenience").
I bought this car in October 2007 with 2 miles on it. I have had it to the shop 1 time for a stero fuse that went back and was replaced under the warrant. I replaced the run flat tires with regular tires ($70 dollar Pirelli's from Discount Tire) and it made no change in it's performance, "repeat, no change in performance after i had run the original tires on Nitrogen for 39000 miles. Nitrogen makes the difference in tires, trust me. The car now has 53000 miles and it still runs great. The only notable annoyance it that the timing clicks and has clicked since about 8000 miles but it is of no harm to the engine. I get the oil changed once a year for about $80, not at the dealership. Great car.
Take the run flat tires off and put regular tires on all vehicles. These tires are to expensive.
2008 BMW 3 Series 328xi 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I love my 328xi coupe. I have owned 3 series sedan, coupe, and convertible. Tis is the best car for me. It is so versatile. Drives well in the snow, totes a good amount of cargo when then seats are folded down, has tons of safety features, and overall I can drive in all weather conditions. And it is a quintessential BMW. It handles sublime, is very fast and quick, comfortable ride, excellent stereo, and looks great. I highly recommend this car.

I've been buying BMW's since 1994, and this is one of the best models that BMW has ever built. BUT BMW ruined it with those horrid run-flat tires. The smallest of bumps make the car
shake because the run flats are so hard. I've bent the front rims 4 times in 3 years so bad that the steering wheel shimmied like crazy. When BMW starts building cars with the Sport Package without the run-flat tires, the I will buy BMW again. The fuel pump went out at 30K and BMW replaced it, no problems. The run-flat tires ruin the ride, so I have put BMW "on-hold".
I-Drive control, blue tooth, auto door opener, everything but the run flats
This is the best car I have ever owned. The handling is better than any car I have ever driven. Great gas mileage. Very reliable. Powerful smooth engine. Fun and safe car. I understand why this is the benchmark.
Handling, smooth power, gas mileage, the tight steering wheel feel.
