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!
Both form and function
2009 BMW 335Tony Clark - Madison, GA01/02/2017
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
2012 BMW 335MARTY E - Bay Area, CA04/11/2017
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.
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.
