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


Review

Two words: stupid fast. A few bugs from the get-go (difficulty starting, iPod integration) but overall very pleased with the 335. It is more spacious than my 05 330. Fuel economy is not quite what I expect but I can't complain with 300 horses under the hood and expect it will get better as everything gets broken in.


Best Features

Horsepower and torque, torque and horespower. iPod integration took some figuring out but is very nice. Did I mention the horsepower and torque???


Worst Features

RFTs are a joke. Will replace with "normal" tires before too long and buy the ContiKit for any flats. No oil dipstick? Detailed directions for Bluetooth and iPod integration would be nice.

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


Review

After coming from my previous E46 3-series, the current 3 feels like the best yet. The 335 engine is worth the extra money, hands-down. The power is truly amazing. It's slightly larger than previous 3s, but I suppose BMW is making room in the line-up for the 1-series. Fit and finish are impressive, as always. The car is literally an extension of your body when driving -- extremely intuitive and responsive. Some downsides include reliability (minor issues mainly), run flat tires, slow responsiveness of iDrive and Comfort Access at times, poorly placed window controls (too far away), and quirky voice recognition.


Best Features

Powerful engine keeps pace with many sports cars, dynamic handling, SOS standard, very fun to drive, exceptional safety features, triple- blink turn signals, heat "at rest" feature, real-time traffic, and more!


Worst Features

Run flat tires should be optional -- No all-season RFT available as replacements for sport pkg... nobody makes them!! Horrible! Window controls are in a weird location -- put them back on the middle console. Typical 3-series drying/cracking door seals are STILL a problem and create creaking noise

2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I had always wanted a true convertible and when I read about the new 335 hardtop conv and the tt engine I plunked down my money. I took ED delivery in July and we had a once in a lifetime expereince driving through the Alps and Italy. It is now home and over Thanksgiving it had its first long trip of 1,200m RT. Although it is technically a very sophisticated car, with heaps of electronic gadgetry - I have iDrive - it all works as advertised. I even lowered the top on I-95 in stopped traffic. Needless to say, it is fast and performs very well. And it is quiet cruising at 100 as if it were a coupe. Gas mileage isn't bad either, getting 23 mpg in a mix of suburban and high speed driving.


Best Features

The twin turbo engine, build quality, overall design and execution, good looks, Sirius radio, cruise control, comfort assist, folding rear seat, safety devices for folding top.


Worst Features

I can't think of any.

2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have stayed away from BMWs for the last 5 years due to dissatisfaction with local dealerships and overall BMW attitude to customers. I was lured back by the 335's promise of M3 like performance with more pleasant manners as a daily driver, for a lot less money. I was initially a bit disappointed as the car is heavier and less responsive than my old E46 328. I have since replaced the stock suspension with PSS9 coilovers and ditched the RFTs and put wider tires on front. It's a completely different car, and handles like a BMW should. It's hard to beat as an all round car with room for four. Most drivers will be happy with the stock performance, but it can be substantially improved.


Best Features

Sport package seats. Wide torque band.


Worst Features

Make RFTs optional. Performance options.

2007 BMW 3 Series 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

A great looking car. It's a blast to drive. Unlimited acceleration. Almost feels like a go cart. Love the ability to unlock the car and start it w/o taking keys out of my pocket. Seats not great for the bigger body as they are heavily bolstered. Don't buy this car if you drive almost exclusively in heavy traffic. When you can't enjoy its potential, it's just another car.


Best Features

Twin turbo engine. Very strong braking. External looks. The iDrive - once you master it, it is quite good. Don't believe all the negative criticism about it.


Worst Features

A car at this price point should have a CD changer and satellite radio built in. Get rid of run flat tires. If you get a flat you must replace the tire rather than patch it. Bad for the environment and extremely expensive. Each tire goes for several hundred dollars.
