2008 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Car is fun to drive, but unreliable at times. In my opinion, this car has a fuel management problem. Don't like the run flats, but oh well. Recommend waiting two more years until BMW works out the bugs or you'll be spending more time in the shop than expected. Have a second car available. Lease, do not buy this car so you can get a good feel for the car until you are ready to buy.


Best Features

Looks, driving and interior. Car feels great when it's in the zone.


Worst Features

Fuel system needs upgrading. Fuel pump is probably the biggest weak spot. Allow to opt out of the run flats.

2008 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my 3rd 3-series (2002 325i, 2006 325i, now my 2008 328i Coupe) and I can say that I have been a loyal, dedicated customer of BMW. The cars are so wonderful once you buy one you can't buy or drive any other make. It feels like a part of you physically as you drive the car, from the structure to the brakes to the steering and engine the feeling is so terrific and reassuring other makes feel like appliances in comparison or clouds to drive (i.e. Lexus). BMW sure has created a car worthy of master craftsmanship that will have longevity in the marketplace for years to come if they keep up the wonderful effort in producing such a wonderful product!


Best Features

So many to name, from the seats (sport pkg) to the engine (smooth and musical) to the steering to the styling of the coupe that turns heads even in LA when my car is a dime a dozen. Its truly a wonderful, complete design that truly speaks of BMW's heritage.


Worst Features

Cupholders? Are those cupholders or are they just pieces of art? Useless. A 3-series costs so much these days, it shouldn't be considered entry level anymore which is sad...the 1-series is now the entry model. Please lower the price or add more standard features. Paint quality could be better.

2008 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335xi 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Got the car last October. Nothing but issues with it. Shifts hard, constant jerking. Also experiencing issues with the oil sensor. Today my car has been in the shop for 5 days because of a bad fuel pump apparently. Waiting for BMW to send the part! Not happy with it !


Best Features

Powerful engine, bluetooth, the stereo system is really nice.


Worst Features

cupholders, and the iDrive. Needs a user friendly navi.

2008 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is my second BMW and let me tell you, BMW has made some huge upgrades. Three years ago I owned a 330i sedan w/ M inspired performance package. This car is way better on so many levels. For starters the 300 hp engine is very powerful. In third gear I'm already at 100 mph. This car is FAST! Also, the color options are great. I choose sparkling graphite w/ coral red leather. The interior and exterior designs are very pleasing to the eye. Great options are available like the iPod connection, comfort access, and rear park distance alert. Another cool feature is the ability to retract the side mirrors automatically with a push of button. Overall, this is a great car that I highly recommend!


Best Features

iPod connection, Comfort Access, smooth & powerful 300 hp engine, great design (coral red leather is an eye-catcher), no turbo lag, Logic7 systems (sounds amazingly clear)


Worst Features

the seatbelt is very snug, cup holders aren't very practical, iDrive is NOT intuitive at all

Review

We just picked this car up two days ago, and are already in love. It is faster than my Porsche Boxster, and nearly as fast as my '99 Corvette. It is supremely comfortable with great technology gizmos. I have wanted this car since it first came out, and am not disappointed. There is a little body lean, but it is still great for its size and the type of car. We have owned two other BMWs, a Z4 and a 330 convertible, but this is the best by far.


Best Features

Bluetooth, iPod, paddle shifters, sport seats, stereo, speed, braking.


Worst Features

Sell it without run flats, so it would ride better and get better mileage. My Porsche comes with an air compressor and a can of tire sealant, so it also saves the weight of a spare.
