2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan 335i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have owned this car for 1year and 2 months. All I can say is wow. My 0-60 times are 4.8 seconds. The car handles like no other 4 door. Car handles great in snow and ice. The DTC is out of this world and doesn't let you spin out the car in the snow.


Best Features

Engine. 300hp and 300lb is a lie. Flat out. I dynoed the car and came up with 282wrhp and 297lb of torque. That is good, but way off :) That is why this car blows most cars off the road.


Worst Features

The only real thing is change the radio system. Lets get a little more modern.

2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan 335xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I've had this car for about a year and I've had little to complain about. The car is very fun to drive and very comfortable. However, the run flat tires are AWFUL and need to be replaced with regular tires. They make every bump a jarring experience, and make hitting minor potholes feel like you just got hit with a sledgehammer. They also seem to have some deleterious effect on high-speed cornering maneuvers.


Best Features

Awe-inspiring 300bhp turbo inline-six, precision steering, comfortable cockpit, speed^nth power


Worst Features

Replace run flats (for the love of god) with regular performance tires, interior fit and finish could be improved to Japanese standards, iDrive system is okay but not great

Review

I have about 5000 miles on this car. It is a dream to drive, and the ideal practical yet fun to drive sedan. I previously owned a '98 328i and this car is leaps and bounds better in every category. I was a little nervous about opting for automatic transmission this time, but I needn't have worried. With manual, sport, and "D" modes to choose from, and quick shifting, it is exceptionally competent and fun. It doesn't hurt that the massive torque is available at almost any RPM, so acceleration is strong in any gear. The run flat tires are a mixed bag--I like the safety feature but don't care for the harsher ride and potential expense to replace.


Best Features

Acceleration (huge and flat torque curve from 1500 RPM), handling, brakes, Bluetooth, exceptional automatic transmission, no cost 4 years maintenance, driving it on the German Autobahn


Worst Features

Smoother ride on potholed roads, larger digits on instrument panel, ability to read radio LCD with polarized sunglasses, hesitation and jerk sometimes when accelerating from a stop.

Review

One word: wow! This is my first Bimmer. I've owned American muscle cars and turbo-charged imports, but nothing combines drive and performance like this 335i. It has the raw power of my old V8 camero, and sticks to the road like my 300Z - the best of both worlds. Almost all the cars on the lots were auto, and all had the premium package. We ordered ours from the factory in Germany in order to get a 6 speed manual gearbox with all the sport options and very little of the "premium" options (no i-drive, thank goodness). It arrive in 5 weeks. It feels like we got a production M3 right of the box! We have had it for almost 7 months now and its still a thrill.


Best Features

The engine is incredible - NO turbo lag. Want to go fast? Flatten the pedal to the floor and let the computer do all the fuel flow adjustments. Smooth power and incredible cornering. I actually turned off the traction control once just to remember what a loose end on a high speed turn felt like!


Worst Features

I'm six foot so it's comfortable in the front, but a bit tight in the back for teh shoulders. The G35 was roomier in back, but you have to give up a lot for the added space. Also the front cup holders are poorly placed - they stick way out. I hit my knee on them when I'm the passenger if they're out

Review

You buy, you pay, and you pay some more. But you have a blast while your doing it. Also make the right choice and get the manual.


Best Features

The iDrive system.


Worst Features

Scrolling on the iPod music list gets tedious, cup holders need redesigning attention, current ones get stuck, but cool idea.
