Who needs an M3
Pros: the turbo motor
Cons: I haven't found anything not to likeThe 335i with the sport and premium packages and the six speed manual is quite the BMW hot rod. In my opinion, the 335i coupe has the best styling, handling and performance. I believe that this is a modern BMW classic.
Pros: everythingGreat car for 2 people. I have the 2011 135i coupe version and would highly recomend to all. It's very fast with the 7 speed trans. no turbo lag and the car magazine test indicate 0-60 under 5 seconds which I can say is right on. Needless to say you can surprise many! Comfort is not as good as the 328 owned in 2007 but it has all the options as in the 3 and the ride is better than most smaller cars. Can't take this car anywhere without getting very positive comments from strangers. So if looking for a rocket with all the bells and whistles this is the one! Once you test drive you'll know what I mean....
Worst Bimmer I've had
Pros: handles well
Cons: electrical systemThis car has had major electrical problems. On seemingly random occasions, the headlights have turned on while the car has been parked, draining the battery and necessitating a jump start. I've taken the car to BMW dealer many times, and communicated w/ BMW customer relations. THey've told me the car is performaing normally and the only problem they've found is the lights have been left on! However, I never leave the lights on and normally they turn off when the ignition is turned off. Watch out!
A Driver's Car
Pros: Manual transmission with 300hp twin turbo and sports package.
Cons: RFTsExcellent handling with comfort. RFT's degrade handling and comfort minimally, will most likely replace with regular tires.
Love my first BMW
Pros: responsiveness and a feeling when driving that I have never experienced with any other vehicle
Cons: just want a newer model nowdrives great, unbelievable warranty for 4 years. Solid, incredible feel when driving. I never arrive late to work even if I leave late!
Pros: The handling ability on the road.
Cons: lack of spaceI received my z4 for my 50th anniversary from a fantastic husband, who thought his wife needed a little red car. I have thoroughly enjoyed the car, some time I wish for a little more space, but the sporty look makes up for it. It is a great car for this grannie!
Pros: Her overall sassy look.
Cons: The run flat tires.Bought this 330i sedan as a CPO. If it wasn't for the 'run flat tires' ... my satisfaction would would be at 100% excellence. Other than that, I have no complaints and enjoy driving her with lot's of pride.
