2011 BMW 3 Series 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


This is my second BMW and let's just say I'll never stray from the brand. I sold my '06 330i 6-speed manuel and bought the 335d. This is a great everyday car for anyone who loves to drive. Don't get it if you like driving a Lexus. Boring! This car can fly! Push you back in your seat fly! There's slight lag when you push the accelerator compared to my 330i but when it pulls, hold on tight! Great gas mileage (about 27 city / almost 40 highway). Love the iDrive system. Crystal clear screen w/no glare. Fold down seat a nice plus. Standard sound system sounds great. Sport pkg a must - adds sleeker profile, sport seats, sport steering wheel, etc... highly recommend!

Best Features

Sport wheels on 335d only, torque, acceleration, gas milage, iDrive system, zenon headlights, fold down seat, heated seats, minimalist interior yet loaded with options, subtle purr of the diesel. Only hear more than a purr when starting in the cold. Love the solid sound of the doors shutting.

Worst Features

There's a slight rattle in the left door panel that i can't figure out... Make the keyless start standard, or just give me a normal key! Give an "unlock all doors in park" option in addition to auto lock at 5mph.
