    My car

    My last car was a Mercedes E500. Pretty dam fast. This 335d se is 0.2 seconds slower (0-62) but with the sports suspension pack and 427ft/lbs torque it seems faster. I purchased the car new and only have one point to make, the suspension is very hard. Other than that the 5600 miles in 6 months have been without any problems what so ever. I know the 335i is faster on the 0-62 dash by 0.4 seconds but at 30 mph press the on the gas and you will out accelerate the petrol. I dont get less than 29 mpg and I don't get more than 47 mpg. I average 30 to 32 mpg, and it wont cost £400 per year road tax in 18 months time! Great car all round.

    My car

    After looking around for a new personal contract hire lease to replace my current car I was surprides that my leasing company ( Concept Leasing) suggested the very well speced 320i SE. The summs added up by a long way - a 27K car for well under £300 a month ex vat !!! The car was ordered in Sparkling Graphite with only one added extra, the auto lights/windscreen wipers option. My new car was delivered this week and is a complete joy to drive and look at. The 320iSE has black window surounds and Black Front Grill veins the same as the M Sport !!! Having two young children I thought the coupe would be a pain but after our first weekend it is very good with ample leg room and with only 2 rear seats each has an area on their own. The drive is superb, fast enough with a decent sounding engine and a ride to match. This may only be the baby of the New 3 series Coupe family but its looks and performance are those of an older brother.

    My car

    I bought a fully specified ex-demo 335i auto in February as a replacement for my Z4 2.5, and have covered about 4500 miles to date. This car is superb - I cannot recommend it enough. It has stupendous power and torque, yet cruises quitely and economically (upto 32 mpg) when not pressing on. I am averaging 27 mpg which I think is great for a 3 litre turbocharged auto. The gearbox is totally matched to the engine, and there is no need to use the paddles or sports mode -but both are fun on a back country road. The i-drive took some time to come to grips with, but the voice activation of most controls negates the need to use it regularly. The car is also very comfortable and practical with a spacious boot and folding rear seats. The only downside is the new top band road tax, but the car is so so good I will live with that.

    My car

    I previously owned an M3 convertible, and was worried about loosing the open top and the wild M3 engine. The 335i kept a wide smile on my face, a lot more comfortable and just about as quick. The toys in there are really great, but the engine alone is worth everything !! thank you bmw for such a practical wolf in sheep's clothing !!
