Used 2011 BMW 335 is for Sale
Reviews for 2011 BMW 335
Performance AND Efficiency? You've got it!
What an amazing vehicle. I have always wanted to have a BMW 3-series, and when I found out about the 335d, equipped with the I6 diesel engine that was rated for 36 MPG, I knew that was the one I wanted to have. I was originally going to purchase new, but the deal didn't work out, so I looked for one that was very low miles - Carmax didn't disappoint in this vein. I paid to have one brought to my location, and as soon as I took it for a ride, I went through with the purchase. A month later, I am beyond happy. This car is amazingly spirited, yet I get great fuel mileage as well. You'd never know it was a diesel engine either until you saw "Diesel Fuel Only" on the fuel filler cap. The fit and finish inside is very well done, and the sport seats are definitely a must! It's a shame that BMW only produced them from 2009-2011 - now that the E90 has been retired in favor of the F30, the diesel has gone away. So, if you still want to have one, the used market is the only way to go now. You won't be disappointed though, I assure you.
A Great Sports Sedan
BMW truly engineers a great vehicle. The inline 6 cylinder engine is very smooth and fast. The 335XI handles extremely well and the steering is "tight". The winter package has heated seats (backrests too!) and steering wheel.
As with other BMW models I've owned, the 2011 is the last model year for the e90 sedan. Compared to the 2006 and 2007 e90 sedans I've owned, it seems to be the most well put together with respect to build quality. In my opinion, it seems to have a more solid feel to it (can be felt with the closing of the door and the heft of the steering wheel). With the combination of performance and economy is awesome. I had to learn to drive this thing smoothly because I was used to driving cars with the power and torque in the middle and upper rev ranges. Since this thing delivers a lot of torque down low, it may launch like a sledgehammer if you're not careful. The production date on my car was 6/10. Prior to 9/10, if you have a car with the base stereo it will not have tweeters or a center channel speaker. The sound quality is somewhat disappointing as the prior '07 335i and '06 330i both had the Harman Kardon stereo as standard equipment. In terms of reliability, I haven't had any major issues which have left me stranded. The car has been in for scheduled oil changes / inspections. The rear pads have been replaced once already (at about 26k miles)- a result of me not being used to its torque delivery (kept triggering wheelspin and activation of the traction control). It has been in for 3 software updates, and 2 recalls (one for some sort of hose and the other for components in the emissions system). Now, I am waiting to get the recall notice for the battery connector.
