The features included with the model series, combined with the engine output make a great deal. Although a bit smaller, it compares with the Mercedes-Benz E350 coupe, and the Audi S5.

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
