2008 BMW 3 Series 335xi 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I recently traded in my '03 M3 coupe for the 2008 335xi coupe and I have no regrets. From my perspective the 335 does everything well and is a pleasure to drive. It has driving dynamics close to a M3 but with a more refined ride. Combine this with the all-season capability of BMW's x-drive and you have a sport coupe that just may be the perfect car in this segment. The bottom line: if you want a race car buy one. The new M3, a Corvette or a Porsche will do the job. If on the other hand you want a grown-up sports coupe that has room for four, can carry luggage and golf clubs, test drive the 335xi coupe. You wont be disappointed!
The overall rock solid ride quality.
Interior storage is limited and the driver's cup holder is poorly placed.
