Great Car On Poor Tires!
By Jim on


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


This is a follow-up review to one I submitted recently on my 2008 335 xi coupe in which I gave it high marks. If you are considering this car be advised that you can only get RFTs (run flat tires). In addition the 18” five spoke wheels only come with summer performance RFTs. Note: there isn’t an all-season RFT available for the 18” wheel. If you are not familiar with RFTs be prepared for the following. RFTs give a much harder ride, cost about twice as much as conventional tires and may not be able to be fixed if you have a flat. The result of that will be a replacement tire costing $300 – $350! I replaced the original RFTs on my 335xi Coupe with conventional high perf

Best Features

The ride & handling. The rock solid feel of the car.

Worst Features

The driver's cup holder is poorly placed and of course the run flat tires are a negative.
