Acceleration is very quick and the engine is very responsive. However, steering at slower speeds is heavy and slow. The AWD system is the best that I have ever used. Your only restrictions will be your tires. I have Continental Pro Contact SSR (run flat). I take road trips to Wisconsin and West Virginia in the winter and have never been stuck, even when plowing through snow over the front bumper. In wet conditions the tires will not break free unless you turn off the traction control and stability systems. Gas millage is good. 27 to 29 highway with an average consumption of 25 MPG. The cabin room is average along with the trunk. I can fit everything that my family needs on a road trip. 2 kids with child seats, two suitcases and a running stroller. The engine overheats for no reason. The computer destroys IPODs for no reason. "Scheduled maintenance" is inadequate so be ready for some out of pocket expenses. The AWD will wear down tires fast. at least 1000$ per set of 4 every 20-25,000 miles. Break pads wear out much faster than the scheduled maintenance logs suggest. The car is a maintenance hog so I hope that you live close to a BMW dealer. My recommendation is to lease a new BMW and not have to worry about anything because it will be covered under the warranty for the period leased. Another option is to loose the performance and get a much more reliable 328. I regret buying this car because it is always in the shop and the resale value of the car is not even close to what you are going to pay for it. Keep in mind that the KBB price guide is not what dealers and consumers use. It is what they are selling at auction for that everyone is looking at. Don't pay too much and good luck!

BMW 335i is build to be driven hard I had 135i brand new for one year 60000miles no problems what so ever Chip tuned with ALPINA chip 420 hp on crank dynoed Change OIL as soon you see it going down on your board computer do not go for 15000 miles and remember at least every 6 months oil change no matter what. Use only castrol oil full synthetic EUROPEAN FORMULA! Or Motul oil HPFP no issues sorry for CA you guys have bad fuel which affects your HPFP but you can use octane booster to prevent it. Car is very comfortable if you are on the good build road the seat position is one of the best out there. Steering give you all feed back from the road(the reason why lexus and mercedes and audi drivers think its not comfortable. Its called feeling the road and handling) Its been the same for my 335i Chiped with ALPINA chip plus aef intake around 450hp GPS shows near 200mph M3 and M5 stock not fast enough This car is not for everyone only the one who really like to push it hard and drive it daily The gasoline in the US has 10% ethanol which eats plastics inside your HPFP if you leave it standing around for too long "weekend drivers" All of you who know how to appreciated the Ultimate Driving Machine have fun driving it ......

Every day i joke with my wife about going out to my "stable" and running my 300+ horses around the town. This is a powerful and gorgeous car, visciously quick, probably too quick for all the congestion in Chicago--but i could care less. this car can outperform most. traded in a mazda rx8 which i thought handled and performed great, but bmw outclasses and outperforms it. If you buy this car, I highly recommend getting rid of the run flat tires and getting ultra high performance all season tires if you live in the midwest or snowy and rainy regions. They are much more comfortable and still get great grip in rain and snow. If you buy used, I also recommend getting this car certified preowned because i don't care how much money you have, you want the maintenance to be covered under warranty or through the maintenance plan because the repairs are expensive. I bought it used with 14000 miles and the engine and features are best in class. however, i had to take it in for service three times in three months for electrical issues with door locks and windows. No big deal- it was covered by warranty, but i never had to take a car in for repair so many times in such a short time to deal with minor electrical glitches. All is well for now, and this car really performs. When I hammer the pedal down, I forget about the little annoyances that i dealt with. Once the warranty and maintenance coverage ends, I'm out of this car and I will probably get a newer version in 2011 because the driving experience is unbelievable. Ride on.

BMW 335i Convertible. Twin Turbo engine is fast with loads of torque. Little to no turbo lag. The interior is very nice with wood trim and heated seats... Can't say enough about the hard top convertible - people still ask to have me demonstrate. Fun handling, fast car but with all the creature comforts... ONLY complaint has been the Run Flat Tires. Have now replaced 3 rims due to cracks when hitting pot holes. Will soon swap out and carry a flat repair kit. Car is just a joy to take on long rides or canyon winding roads-- it really does perform...!!!

This car is amazing.I have never driven anything like it before. Everytime I get in feels like the first time. I was recently an Audi enthusiast. Not anymore. This car is a dream. I am actually thinking of buying it when my lease is up. That is very rare for me. Cars bore me after 6 mts. Not this ultimate driving machine.. Enjoy

The 335 is a great car. Its fast and has great handling. I am currently leasing a 335 coupe and i love it. It's the best car i have ever owned. The interior is very high quality and I-Drive is really good once you learn how to use it properly. I now have 10,000 miles on the car and no problems at all. Great Car. 100% worth the money.

could not be happier with this car. when you want excitement, this car delivers. the power is incredible and instantaneous from the turbos. the handling is sharp and responsive. when you want a relaxing car, it is quiet, easy to drive and comfortable. looks fantastic. as fast as most sports cars, far more luxurious. fuel mileage is good for a twin turbo car. back seat is comfortable for a coupe, plenty of leg room for most adults. get one.

335i Beauty

What can I say. My wife is our breadwinner, and needed a new car, starting a new job in CA via Las Vegas. She likes Beemers/Bimmers (not sure which is right) and with a youngster, we needed 4 doors. I knew our budget and I knew immediatly which one we should get. A 335i with a Vishnu Stage II chip! Can you say 400 HP? Well close. You would need 93 octane and a modified exhaust to get that, but close enough is still very good. Let me tell you, holy cow! I have not been able to totally turn off the Traction control. I also have a hard time launching without wheelspin and the TC kicking in slows it down some, even though I have it turned off. Love the slick 6 speed autostick. hate that it's opposite my other cars. Would prefer to push forward to upshift than back like the BMW transmissions. Still, a stunning car that stickered out at almost $53,000 in 2007! Needless to say it has everything and the kitchen sink. Love the key-less entry a lot, every car should have this. So once you own a 3 series, you'll understand why more autowriters own one than any other car. So buy the 335i, find a chip, Ebay and elsewhere. It's the cheapest HP you will find anywhere!, and you too can be in car heaven. Plenty 2007-10's out there.
