    Perfect Hardtop Convertible. — Appearance: Sports car good looks. Sports car handling with luxury car comfort. Build quality: No noises at all due to hard top. No real blind spots due to no door frame. Currently only regular maintenance. Gas milage really good during regular commutes, due to high torque. Performance: Acceleration, braking and handling can only be outdone by pure sports cars. I feel safe and in control of driving it. This car is the most fun to drive I've ever had!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Conversations easy with top down.

    Cons: No real feel of very high speeds.

    Fantastic — This is the most impressive car I have ever owned. I can't say enough about the performance , handling and breaking capabilities . What impress me most is that If you can keep your foot out of it the gas milage is also impressive, over 20 around town and over 30 on the highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel economy is fantastic for a performance car.

    Cons: Tight as a family sedan.

    Crimson Red Rocket — Although the 335i xDrive is a bit heavy, mine has a six speed manual that is geared nicely 1 - 4 for city driving. Gears 5 and 6 are great for highway driving because they pair well with the 3.18:1 rear axle, keeping the revs down to 2400 rpm at 70 mph, enabling 25+ mpg. As with my previous BMWs, this 335i is well built, solid and quiet except the the run flat tires. No squeaks, no rattles, excellent fitment. My people have commented that it seats four comfortably. My old bones especially appreciate the heated seats and heated steering wheel during our midwest winters.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Snap acceleration, no turbo lag

    Cons: Run flat tires contribute to a somewhat harsh ride

    Still Recomended — Terrific performance, lacks on suspension design, nice styling though the cabin could use a little more space, heavy on service expenses but truly compensates on fun factor. i love the gadgetry, zips hard though a diesel. The I-drive is fantastic.

    Pros: The zip and gadgetry.

    Cons: Suspension and RFT's
