Very balanced car
By rak76 on
2014 BMW 4 Series 435i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Ordered a 435xi luxury edition in sparkling brown with cold weather, driver assistance, premium and tech packages. The sparkling brown paint is lovely and depending on the lighting, it can appear black or purple too. The acceleration is quick and the car is fun to drive in sport/sport+ mode. I find the eco mode to be a little slugglish, especially after starting from a full stop. The engine auto shut-off is a nice feature and you can how much fuel you are saving by driving it in eco mode. The rear seats also have decent room for a mid sized adults. Overall, it's definitely an improvement over the 335 since it has a wider stance and it feels more sure-footed especially in fast corners.
The HUD display, the ConnectedDrive system, the rear view camera with obstacle tracking, the voice guided navigation which is very accurate and the heated steering wheel/seats.
The HK sound system is also very crisp and loud. The folding side mirrors are also pretty neat.
Got 35% tinting done on all windows and definitely made the car look sharper.
There isn't enough storage room in the car so that would be the main improvement I would suggest.
