    My car

    Had the car 3 months after trading in my 130i and find it a much better ride and looker than the 130 if a little down on performance!

    Regularly get low 30's mpg around town and up to 40 on a run.

    Had to search around for one with a manual gearbox leather and sat-nav but it's well worth the wait just need that re-map now!

    My car

    I drive a 328i coupe which is half way between the 325i and 330i with 230hp. I wish the BMW offered US drivers a similiar choice with their engines as they do back home in England. The 328 is however a superb car, I have owned mine for over 1 year now and it is simply the best car I've owned. The service here in the US is free for 4yrs/50k so it hasn't cost a penny to service. The tyres are another story. Slow leak, rapid leak and two tyre bulges forced me to replace all of them at a cost of $1500 or 700 quid. Ouch. That is the one thing I don't like about the car is the RFT and the rough ride. I wish that BMW would address the universal hatred for these type of tyres. Overall great handling, performance, space, practicality, good mileage, you can have it all..

    My car

    Experienced problems from the start. Had to replace 3 tyres (19" wheels) in last 6 weeks and the car has suffered from various other problems including a passenger seatbelt handover that works when it likes, problems with the acceleration and so far three visits to BMW, two software upgrades and a breakdown (roadside assistance took 3 hours to arrive and the replacement car was a Vauxhall Zaferia). Software upgrade means my mobile phone handset no longer works with the bluetooth. Customer service has been terrible - they don't know the meaning of the word.

    My car

    Hi, I bought a 335i Coupe yesterday in space grey and I'm made up with it. Obviously I've only had it a day... but I've spent my entire day off - driving around in it and I am still smiling now! I normally think Turbo'd cars are cheating and prefer high revving, NA power engines but the 335i on the test drive felt so superb and even better now the salesmans not sat next to me. I've spent about 2/3 months researching and comparing various choices of coupes and even hot hatches to find one that ticked every box. I love the design of this engine. A solid straight six, with two small turbos that really do get rid of turbo lag that I hate so much!!! To sum up, I would say it is similar power and drive to an e46 m3, without the diabollical MPG, the sound of the engine from a 335i even at cruising speeds is fantastic let alone when you find room to give it some stick.- The interior is also far better than old BMW's too. Try it for yourself and you will see what I mean, I am so glad I chose this car!
