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.
My favorite car so far
2008 BMW 335Gabriel - Houston, TX02/27/2015
As a youngster I've always love a car that can pack a punch when you step on the pedal and this BMW has it all and more. The 6 cylinder twin turbo engine saves me gas like no other which is another pro when you trying to save money on gas. Premium gas is required but full tank will last you a week if driven like a civilized person with a light foot on the pedal. Over all it's an awesome car!
2007 BMW 335AirricBmw335 - waukegan, IL07/29/2010
Its been one month since I purchased my 335i, it put the fun back into driving. Took it on a 5 hour drive, and every hour passed by quickly and with this care they where fun. The satalite radio is great. The controls where all at a good arms reach. The car glided down the road. The power of the car is great also, if you do not watch out you can quickly go over the speed limit if you do not watch your speed. This is my second BMW, they are great cars to drive...
