Pros

handling, great smooth inline 6, and overall wonderful ownership experience that brings a smile to your face everyday you drive it

Cons

could opt for a 335i (same car, more powerful twin turbo engine)

25

I Love It — Love the handling, and braking is really good Feel like it could use some more power in terms of straight-line acceleration, but the 255 is ample for most needs Overall it is amazing to drive, and it makes me smile everytime i take a corner at speed. The steering is nicely weighted and very sensitive, best ive driven so far. The appearance is pretty decent stock, but its more classy than sporty, however a few subtle aggressive mods will change that, (working on those right now) The build quality is above average, but occasional little things get annoying, like broken cup holders and occasional rattles gets good gas mileage if you want it to, aka. dont drive like you stole it a bit pricey (both the car and all parts associated with it), but its a BMW so its expected

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

a great all round package

Cons

tyres cost a fortune

A Great Investment — one of the bast casr built. i cant affored a m3, but this car makes up for that. raw power from a 3 litre straight six n/a. dont get any better than that, much more affordable than a m3. i recently took it rgmotorsport donr a stage 1.boosted it to 160kw on the wheels , giving it that exra kick.

Great Car — This car is very fun to drive around in. It handles well and rides smooth. The interior is black and the paint color is silver. Very fuel efficient. Has plenty of extras and like the push button start and stop.

diesel

Good All Rounder — Good handling, quick pick up for a diesel. Rapid between 30-70. Build quality is solid. Fancy getting a new set of wheels and maybe an ecu remap, oh and maybe some lower suspension. Still get 40 mpg combined fuel consumption

It's A Good Car, It's My Dad's, But I Can Tell That It Drives Smoothly — The car has a great build and is pretty solid. It hugs the road, and it has great acceleration. It averages 27 miles to the gallon so gas won't be too much. The exterior paint job is wonderful (Monaco Blue). Overall I'd say this is an extremely fun car to drive.
