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.
Great car; couldn't ask for more. High-pressure fuel pump problem, but this year of 335is is notorious for that. Luckily, I've still got a bit of factory warranty left; I just think it's something I should have been made aware of prior to my purchase. I actually look forward to going to work/class because this thing's so fun to drive. Added after-market yellow foglights, eyelids, sunroof wind-deflector, lip. Personalized, yet classy. =)
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.
