Outstanding performance and handling! A rocketship of a ride with the 300HP twin turbos. Slightly bumpy on local streets due to tight sports suspension, which is a minor price to pay for the handling around turns and on open roads. Overall an exceptional drive.

Look this is not as affordable as most vehicles however, it is definitely worth every single penny. The torque and horsepower along with the BMW's bumper to bumper warranty & maintenance for 100K miles/7years. If you can afford it (as well as the tires every year - approximately $2G's a set Michelin PS2 Sports ZR ZP)... than get it... no Mercedes or Audi can touch this 3 series BMW with twin turbos!

Excellent piece of engineering. Very nice to drive, far superior to the Audi A4, and the Volvo S60. The responsiveness and handling was superior to the Mercedes C300, but not by as significant a margin as the Audi and Volvo.
The steering and transmission are what I like the best about the 335xi, but the model I bought has the sports package so I think that contributes to a bit of a hard ride. If you like smoother rides and bump handling, look hard at the Mercedes C class, that car handled bumps well and had a very smooth suspension.
Feature wise, the 335xi has more features than I will ever really use. I only wish the navigation system posted the speed limit for the stretch of road you are driving on, that is a feature I really like with the stand alone Garmin models. The heated seats are awesome and get so hot so quickly I wonder what impact that is having on the battery, but so far I've had no issues. If anything, this car has some extremely well thought out engineering in every single little detail.
Now that I've driven this car for several hundred miles around the area, I doubt I'll be able to go back to another sedan again. I believe I will be driving BMWs for a long time to come.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
Lots of eager shoppers may be surprised to know that many of the features found on some of the latest 2018 vehicles are already available on newer used cars. Here’s a breakdown of some of these cool features.
