335xi... the ride has greatly improved
By RFL on


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


With all of the horror stories regarding the ride on run-flat tires, BMW's finally done something about it. The suspension on the new 2008 335xi is light-years better than previous xis with RFTs. You must specify that the car be equipped with the Continental Conti Pro Contact tires NOT Bridgestones. This is my third xi, the second with RFTs and I am amazed at the difference. The power is amazing, the handling, of course is traditional BMW... stiff and responsive. This car is almost worth the price!

Best Features

The power of the 300 turbo charged engine. City MPG is less than 15 however. It will run nicely on the middle grade of gasoline.

Worst Features

How about room for a spare tire? I actually bought an extra wheel and a tire and have them mounted in the trunk. Takes up considerable room but worth it for the piece of mind. Get a flat with an RFT and you're in for a surprise. They can't be fixed and last minute replacement is expensive.
