Hot Tamale — I love that this car is so versatile. It has the function of a car and the fun of the convertible. It's like having two cars in one. The car is very powerful has quick acceleration. It's extremely stylish and easy to drive. It is very comfortable and roomy (unless you are in the back). The adjustable seats are great and I love the 3 levels of heated seats.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This car gets A LOT of attention no matter where I go. It's a sharp looking car!

Cons: Not a lot of room for passengers in the back seat. If that is not a concern for someone, then this would be great for them.

Monster On The Road, Baby In The Garage — Very fast and powerful vehicle that needs to be babied. Cargo space is decent but don't expect a whole lot. The engine works best when you use premium gas from the pump. The white finish and red interior add to the vehicles sleek look.

Pros: Fast and powerful with a very sleek look

Cons: Gas and maintenance can be expensive. Decent cargo space

The Ultimate Package From The Ultimate Driving Machine — This is a great all around car - fun to drive, lots of equipment, lots of power, easy to modify in case I get bored with the power, and feels very safe at any speed. This is a huge concern seeing how my last car was t-boned by someone running a stop light.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast and fun to drive, lots of options, great on gas

Cons: none yet

Sexy Looking Coupe. — I just purchased the car used. Overall I feel I got a good value. The drive home from the dealership was great. It has the Premium Package and Sport Packages. Perfect combination of features. Took me a little while to find it with a 6spd manual with low miles so I gave up having heated seats. Drives like its on rails and the staggered fitment of the wheels makes it awesome to take around turns.

Pros: Smooth, well built powerful and comfortable.

Cons: No heated seats without cold weather package. A-la-carte options drive up sticker price.

The Ultimate Driving Machine — Beyond the hiccup of the 335I engine half power software issue,...this is a driver's car! The twin turbos give no hint of any lag when called upon. Power is consistent through the rpm range. Braking becomes shorter as the vehicle matures.

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

Pros: Beautifully crafted and engineered car.  The aluminum convertible hardtop is truly a work of art.  

Cons: Car goes to half power from time-to-time ...quirk of the 335i engine.

My 335i — Very fun car to drive. Handles great, power is there when you need it or not. The brakes are fantastic. Never get one with out the sport package. Seats are perfect. Heated seats are great in the winter with leather

Pros: Power and handling

Cons: repair costs

Clean, Refined, Affordable, Amazing Warranty, And An Overall Classy Sports Car — It was clean, fun to drive, sleek and the black really pops! Easy to maintain, not as expensive as everyone says these cars are..BMW has had great customer service and has been much appreciated. I definitely will choose another BMW for my next car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The car is great..more than enough power at an affordable price (without the $70-$80k) price tag, fuel efficient for what you get (21-22mpg in town) and (28-30) on the free way. Comfortable inside, adjustable seats, navigation that's accurate and provides a great experience. Overall efficient, clean, powerful yet refined, a great package for the price.

Cons: It is a coupe..so the backseat space isn't huge, but for how BMW designed the backseat in this car...it's not bad at all.

"the Ultimate Driving Machine" — BMW is truly "the Ultimate Driving Machine". When you get behind the wheel of this car, you feel like you are piloting a complex work of art and solid all around. The clean lines/look of this vehicle makes it highly desirable and turns heads. I love most everything about this vehicle.

Cons: Being a Coupe(2-door), the interior of the vehicle is not as spacious as I'd like it to be. However, the back seats do offer plenty of room for anyone sitting in them, but not so much space for groceries or transporting larger items.

Bimmers — i like the all wheel drive and the reliability of the car don't like the fact that only have to put 91 octane gas to expensive now a days good handling and good materials inside of the car. with 16" tires the cars is a bit too low for my taste with 17" is where it feels better

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

Pros: Reliable

Cons: gas has to be 91 in order for it to run efficiently
