    Red Head Turner — This is a great entry level BMW that is a blast to drive and gets a lot of looks. Beware of the police..they love red BMW's!! The 3 series has been one of Car and Driver's ten best for many years and its easy to see why once you've had the experience of driving it!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Hot Hot Hot! Great power and super tight handling!

    Cons: Poor fuel economy

    Bmw 328i Coupe 2009 — The BMW 3 Series cars accelerate, turn and stop with remarkable agility and balance, without seriously compromising comfort or common sense. The 3 Series sedans define sports sedan and remain the target for every luxury car brand from Acura to Volvo.

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

    Pros: Look

    Cons: you need a lot of money to buy gas

    Great Buy At The Time, More Economy Would Be Better Seeing As Petrol Has Risen By 35% Since Buying — Good car, power to economy is good, handling excellent unless it's rained or snowed. Performance is great when you need it. Build quality and Appearance is also good. Cost of ownership is expensive, however the fun factor makes up for it

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a BMW, come on enough said

    Cons: Handling in the wet and snow

    335i X-drive — A great car to drive. 6 speed manual transmission, Sports package, navigation, AWD.... TwinTurbo!!! Need I say more. Never really liked BMW's before the 335 came out, then I drove one and was amazed by the engineering and craftmanship that was put into this vehicle. Compare it to a 328 and you might as well take a nap..... zzzzzzzzz

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: TwinTurbo AWD

    Cons: Waiting for a Bigger Single Turbo

    Love This Car — Love the power, the handling the 335xi is good, but not great. BMW got the power distribution on the xi wrong for this model year and the traction control steps in way too much sometimes. Also, I don't know if it is the turbo or something else, but at high speed there is a weird noise similar to if you just had the sunroof open. Other then that I love it!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handling and Performance

    Cons: Minor issues that can be annoying

    Good For Commuting — My BMW 3 28xi is a pefect commuting car, with amazing handling and braking only problem is is that it is not that fast, although it is a 2.8. I have fitted new m3 alloys to my car, meaning it looks that little bit more sporty. It is cheap to run and tax

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cheap to run

    Cons: Not that fun to drive

    Buy It — The car is freaking awesome and 34 MPG, best built car in the world. The 3 series is German engineering at it's finest. No wonder Car and Driver has had it on the top 10 list for 19 years in a row

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

    Pros: Best in the Automovite World

    Cons: There are none

    335d M Sport E92 Coupe — Actually a 335d E92 coupe, very impressed with this car. 0-60 is around 5 seconds and the torque is the same as a 911 turbo. 35mpg from a 3 litre twin turbo diesel. It was (might still be) the fastest production diesel car available. A bit rough on the road as the runflat tyres are very thin and you can feel a lot of the uneven surfaces.

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Hitting bad surfaces
