Used BMW 335 for Sale
About the BMW 335
Lauded for its sharp handling and engaging driving dynamics, the BMW 3 Series is considered the golden standard by many when it comes to sporty compact luxury. Introduced in 2007 for the U.S. market, the 335 distinguishes itself from the rest of the 3 Series by being the first model to dip its toes into turbocharged waters thanks to its 3.0L twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine, rated at 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. While the 335 was available in coupe form, there was no wagon version made available. Instead, BMW launched the five-door 335i Gran Turismo fastback in 2014.
In addition to a few minor changes in exterior styling, the 335 saw major changes under the hood for the 2009 model year. Out went the twin-turbocharged 3.0L engine and in its place went a similar engine with a single twin-scroll turbocharger, rated at the same amount of horsepower and torque as the previous engine. The 335 lasted until the 2015 model year, when the 340 was introduced as its replacement.

Reviews for BMW 335
I would recommend the car but would recommend that wherever they purchase it assure that maintenance actually done including the correct battery in the car and checking all the hoses and connections. Warranty did not cover any of the work and we were told the work should have been done at the time the car was taken in. Car Max indicated they had been through the whole car but then why was the battery in there? A Ford battery?

335is (car is a WOLF!) hear it growl
Amazing automobile . There is a reason they only made a limited number of this car. It's too good to share!!! Feels like I am riding the front of a bottle rocket. This is a purpose built machine with nearly 100 more torque than e92 m3 will shred the streets! Enjoy
- Power: More power than road available here.
- Technology and Entertainment: Car is roughly 10 years ahead of comp. American car. Ha ha
- Ride and Handling: Nearly 50/50 chassis need I say more
A simple everyday pleasure
I give it a thumbs up all the way. My wife, having driven a 7 and 5 series, never thought that she would enjoy a 3 series, but this car is by no means a compromise or entry level category. I recommend the premium/luxury package, possibly that has heightened our level of pleasure. Words fail to describe the car, it is a sensory experience ... you have to drive it to truly appreciate it.
- Ride and Handling: This is not your mamma's diesel. It is quiet, fast and handles like it is on rails. You won't believe it unless you drive one, and then they will have to pry you out of it.
- Cabin Noise: Low road and wind noise, as is to be expected from a BMW. There is a musical roar when the second turbo-charger kicks in, sweet music to the ears.
- Fuel Economy: I get 38.5 mpg on the highway. in town the mileage plummets to 30.8 mpg. Nothing to complain about, but if it bothers you, Telsa, the new BMW electric, Nissan electric, Prius and Chevy volt are some of your options. Do not buy a BMW and then complain about gas mileage, no, no, no ! Out of League.
- Technology and Entertainment: Addition of Urea (used to clean the exhaust) can be a pain, but it is only once every 15,000 miles and a small cost to pay for not having to clean black soot from the bumper and visually polute the atmosphere.
- Cost to Maintain: Cost is BMW high, but then again one does not buy a BMW is one is concerned about routine maintenance costs. The dealers will pluck your eyes out of their sockets, but if you are nice to a mechanic, he/she may introduce you to their home garage setup for a fraction of the cost.
This price does not include tax, title, and tags. Additional fees may also apply depending on the state of purchase.
