    Ultimate Driving Sedan — This is one of the best cars I have ever owned. It is everything I expected and more... I recommend to anyone. It is a pleasure to drive. I drove it on the back road in VA and felt it was a slot car. It has the Sport package so it rides a little rough but It what i expected...

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

    Pros: Fun to Drive

    Cons: tire wear is HIGH

    Good To Spend Next Few Years Behind The Wheel — nice to drive, although heavy sedan-ish feeling. It would be nice to have 200+ BHP in it, Great ride and handling, cabin noise is minimal. Good equipment level although it lacks some details from lower classes- sunshield lights, bluetooth, cup holders......

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handling, appearance

    Cons: Equipment level, service costs

    Great Ride — Other than the Fuel pressure pump issue on the 335i, the car is solid and quick with the Vishnu performance chip which should give the car about 80hp and 90Tq. The sport suspension is a must on a BMW since the car will corner very tight.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast and luxury

    Cons: issue with Turbo

    Pros: Responsive throttle and engine, reasonable gas mileage, build quality, free maintenance, very engaging steering

    Cons: Options a bit pricey - but worth it.

    Nice Car — Beautiful car with great german engineering, handles on the dime and never disapoints but power wise is a bit weak. Full maintance from the dealer so no need to spend money on routine maintance. Overall it is a great car to have

    Pros: looks nice

    Get One :) — Such an amazing car with TONS of potential that is now being realized. This car is a great weekend car and a sleeping dragster. The N54 motor(twin turbo) was built as an amazing platform by BMW with lots of room to grow. Getting a 4000+lbs car into the 11s without NOS is a very large feat with such a small block inline 6 but the twin turbo setup makes for much better power...put on the bolt-on mods and an upgraded turbo kit and a tune and this thing is an absolute beast.

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

    Pros: Speed....then look good

    Cons: Only if you wanna drive slow

    What On Earth Will I Go For Next....? — Love it! Better than the porsche! Not so good in the snow mind you - but it's faster, more comfortable and better fun to drive than the porsche. Love the colour too - will definitely be keeping this car for a wee while yet!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everyone gets out of my way in the outside lane of the motorway!

    Cons: Fuel economy.... but who cares?!

    I Smile Every Time I Get In. Watch Out 4 Tickets. My Daughter (princess Leadfoot) Keeps Borrowing It — I bought this as a CPO with about 17,000 miles. Performance and handling are fabulous. Road feel is solid as can be. 40 Mile round trip commute mileage is 22 MPG - long trips about 26 MPG, running on 89 octane. Most fun since my 1966 Shelby GT 350. Paint and interior are great. Traction in snow is terrific.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: acceleration, braking, gas mileage, free maintence, power seats

    Cons: too many warning symbols. Central locks don't open when turning car off. Garage door opener won't work when engine is off.
