The LSD is a sore point but that's about it.

As for interior plastics, meh, we all hate the cupholders, we all hate the plastic, we all hate hate hate, but we buy bmws to drive them not look at the interiors
never driven an E46 M3, or an E36 at all...so dont know about those points.

I do agree no LSD ftl..but in the long run itll prolly save some lives.


you know i have to disagree on the interior remark though. It bugs me that i saw that. although i have yet to see it again(i enjoy random trips to the dealer to buy overpriced parts for my 330..). i might have just test drove a bad one..theres bound to be a couple in the thousands they make.


either way..Im planning on test driving the new M3 and 135 as soon as they get them on the show room floor. Prolly with my mom or dad..ha.

Your Ride: Dont have a car yet
The 335 is good and all but, it will have nothing on the new M3 when it comes out.

Your Ride: 335i 4 Door
Me too!

I could not agree more. I've had the 335i 4 door now for a year, and it's anything but the ultimate driving machine.

-Jerkiness when starting from a stopped position, or when geared down to corner
- Lunging forward when braking. Very strong, pronounced downshifting - even at slower speeds
-Harsh shifting between gears
-iDrive frequently shutting down for no reason.
-Low pro tires: side walls worn out after 15k miles (no refund offered)


I started a review page specifically for that: www.335ireviews.com

Your Ride: 335 Coupe, Mazda3
Here's my take on the 335 coupe.

Exterior:
This is the best looking BMW from the Chris Bangle era if not ever. The Aerolip should have been standard on all coupes.

Interior:
The car's interior is simple, with black leather and aluminum trim it looks stunning. I-Drive is cool looking but extremely slow, the bluetooth picks up my cell phone without issues.

Performance:
Don't need to talk about the n54, the brakes are phenomenal, great stopping power and no fade. The car is heavy and with the standard sports suspension, you can feel the weight shift and slight understeer. No LSD, but then that has been the standard for all non-M cars for some time now.

Future:
KW V2 coilovers, H&R anti-roll bars, Quaife LSD, DBA 2 Piece rotors, Borla cat back exhaust, Riss Racing down pipe, Active Autowerke intercooler and which ever piggy-back ecu/ ecu reflash comes out on top once the dust settles.

Conclusion:
This is the best 3 series to date. It is the perfect blend of performance and price.

Picture:
