Wanted to Love It
By Automan on


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


Wanted to love it. Took me a long time to finally settle on this car, should have gone with the G35x. Two fuel pumps replaced. Very expensive tires that seem to attract nails like magnets, and boy do they ride harshly. Dealer costs very high on parts and service. Small and cramped inside (I'm 6'2"). Love the handling and power. Very precise and tossable. Fun, even in the rain w/AWD. In the end, sold it after only a year and a month because I couldn't take it anymore. Lost $9k between repairs and sale of car. Even warned the guy that bought it off me that it was costly to own. Just to be fair, the car had 32,000 miles on it when I bought it and I sold it with 57,000.

Best Features

Power and handling.

Worst Features

Reliability, interior needs to be a little bigger. And get rid of super- expensive run flat tires.
