2008 BMW 3 Series 335xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Just turned in an Audi S4 sedan for this 335xi sedan. Have been driving it for 4 months. After hearing about how great BMW is for it's superior "driving experience" I have been somewhat disappointed in this car. The steering and handling are average at best. The car does not corner well - there is significant body roll and the steering is not tight. I am not sure if this is due to the runflat tires or maybe I should have gotten the M3, but then no AWD. The engine is great, probably quicker off the line than my Audi, but not as strong once you're at speed and need to accelerate. The gas mileage is also good. The cup holders are a joke. The stereo/electronics are glitchy. Seats are bad.

Favorite Features

Acceleration is excellent. Fuel mileage is good - 20 city and 24 highway. Bluetooth seems to work well.

Suggested Improvements

Tighten the suspension or offer a true sports performance package. Get rid of the rfts. Put in recaro seats. Fix the stereo/electronics. Put cupholders where they should be, in the middle console.
