    A Fun And Young Car — This car is fun to drive! The handling and acceleration are amazing. The hardtop is a great feature, making the car usable all-year round. When the roof is closed, it's like driving a sports car. When the roof is open, it's like driving a sporty convertible!

    Pros: The handling, the hard top

    Cons: Smaller back seats (2 door) and trunk

    Porsche In Disguise — Very nice drivers car, last of the real bimmers with a real engine, in line 6 helped with a turbo, to propel the car even at 100 miles/h , car shoots away and keeps accelerating ! Is as happy on the motorway as in stop go traffic, its adaptative cruise is fantastic, it stops and goes and follows car in front of you. Sport seats are amazing, adaptive suspension is a must, car drives more comfortable than a merc s class, but stiffens once speed, style gets sporty. Just a real drivers car that makes every commute a real fun moment !

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Family car with porsche acceleration, fantastic engine with great noise, economical seen the performance,

    Cons: Dangerous for my driving licence,expensive

    Beautiful Piece Of Machinery! — Shawna refers to it as a grown-up version of her 2004 Mercedes SLK 320 - same blue color, but seating for 4... Nice after years of living aboard a sailboat with only a 10' dinghy with a Tohatsu outboard for sporting fun!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Just picked it up yesterday - sounds great, acceleration is phenomenal.

    Cons: None yet

    A Solid Car For Long Term Use. Beware Of Depreciation! — I bought this car to have something more family friendly than my Porsche Boxster S. The Boxster absolutely has better handling and is more fun to drive, but the 335i is FAR more practical and still preserves a bit of fun. Plus, the refinement and technological tools (HUD, music hard disk, etc.) is a clear step up from the "oversized go-cart" feeling of the Porsche. While it's under warranty, maintenance costs are obviously manageable. However post-warranty, I recommend getting to know a good private mechanic with a lower rate than the dealership.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling and acceleration, even without aftermarket mods

    Cons: Initial price!  BMW will charge you for each and every little thing you want, resulting in a 3-Series that costs +$50k without blinking

    This Car Is "ok", But Not The Bmw I Would Want — See each of the pros/cons. BMW makes a very good car, but I would not buy/lease the 3, nor the 4 Series, again. If you want a BMW sport, the 1 & 2 Series are best for that. If you want Luxury, then the 5,6 Series & up.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: very quiet, smooth handling, ride. Quick response to sudden turns, braking.

    Cons: Front seats not as comfortable as one would expect of a BMW. I would probably go for a 5 or 6 Series, instead. The 3-4 series are just not as Sporty, nor as upscale as their 1-2 Series ( sporty) and their 5-7 series, for the luxury ride.

    Gray 328i Sport Model — The car does not handle as well as i expected with the Sport Line model. I think the new power steering system is to blame and indicted by the edge wear on the front tires. This is a better car than most in its class and much safer with amazing fuel economy for its size. Update: A lot of the handling problem is with the OEM tires. The OEM run flats tire wore out at 18K miles and I replaced them with Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S. Exponential handling improvement was achieved. Here is the image video tire upgrade I did: youtu.be/LDRaa5fhyxg

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gets good gas mileage and has power with the Turbos standing by when you need them.  Overall quality is good compared to the others in the class.

    Cons: She lost value supper fast.  Recommend GAP insurance as it is so bad.  The auto engine stop is a design problem as it shakes the car at restart.  Tires go quick in normal driving adding to cost of ownership.

    Nice Second Car — This is my Wife's car. It is Perfect for her. The technology is not seamless. There are Too many steps to change from device to device And to move around through the options. The ride is a little stiff with the run flat tires.

    Pros: Power for class

    Cons: Ride
