Reviews for BMW 335
E92 335i, sports package and AT
I had owned a few reasonably priced high strung sports cars before including a WRX STI, a Lotus Elise and a Porsche Cayman S. I would say that it is an overstatement to claim that this car drives like a sports car. It very nearly does. What really ruins it I suspect are the run flat tires. Not only are they expensive, but the sidewalls are so stiff BMW decided to spring their cars soft even with sports package. So you have this interesting combination of sometimes harsh, sometimes too soft feel. Having said that, the car has a great balance. When you loose it, everything just seems to happens in slow motion in a very predictable way. I had never driven anything like it. Overall, it is an easy car to live with that has a bit of zing. Reasonably comfortable, fast, good handling, safe and etc. It does hit that sweet spot nicely. I sure wish the car came with REAL tires though but that I suspect isn't as easy as simply swaping out tires. It will likely to require replacing springs AND shocks if you do not want to ruin handling.
Both form and function
After owning an E46 for nearly seven years I was excited to buy an E92. The performance is impressive compared to my 325Cic and is a blast to drive. These cars are built to last but require a commitment to maintain in order to keep on the road. It's much easier if your wallet if you enjoy DIY projects and much more gratifying too. Do yourself a favor and ditch the Runflats with Summer tires, the ride and performance will improve greatly.
Best cars I've owned
I've owned several E92 3 series and they're great cars. When buying one I really recommend getting a full maintenance warranty, not because they're unreliable (quite the opposite in fact), but because these are performance-built cars with turbo high-compression engines that require a bit more TLC than your average daily driver so sometimes even small issues can add up really quickly. That's the trade-off when buying a "driver's car" with the best suspensions and transmissions in the industry next to Porsche. The N55 engine is also a multiple Engine of the Year Award recipient and the '11-'13 models are the last years BMW still used hydraulic steering before swapping to electronic. They're some of the best cars BMW has ever produced.
