Stop posting pictures that make the current 3er look good. Never thought I would like this one, but it looks exceptionally good here.
I never liked the wheels to be honest, but its pretty nice! So is the scenery! (I'm guessing you live farther out in the county).

I spent a lotta time driving my buddy's 335i when I visited him in Laguna Beach this past weekend.
Couple questions for you...
-- Do you find the window control placement annoying as heck??
-- Are your exterior door handles illuminated?
-- If you have an iPhone, and the BMW iPod interface, does it charge your iPhone?
-- What do you think of the performance?
My buddy added a chip to his 335i and it's now at 350HP... and that thing was FAST!!!!
Yep.-- Are your exterior door handles illuminated?
IDK, but I don't know why it would not. I always just pair my 3G via bluetooth with it.-- If you have an iPhone, and the BMW iPod interface, does it charge your iPhone?
Awesome. I love the low end torque. It just pulls and pulls and pulls. I bet people think I am hitting the throttle hard when accelerating from a stop, but I hardly ever go above 3000 RPM and most of the time shift at 2500 RPM( I always use M mode when driving it).-- What do you think of the performance?
^You're in Maryland? You must join Chase and me for high tea sometime.
It would read the playlists and iDrive could go thru the lists and songs easily. But it would not charge it.
I had always believed that since it's a USB system, it should charge iPhone, but apparently, you need an iPhone compatible system.
I had dug around, and even the system in the new Camaro will not charge the iPhone. So now I've got to re-evaluate these cars for iPhone compatibility. Mercedes and the Jaguar XJ specify iPhone compatibility specifically. But if the Camaro system doesn't charge iPhone, I can reasonably expect GM cars across the board to have the same problem. I wonder if Fords have issues with the Sync system??
In short... it's annoying. And it will be a deal-breaker for any car that doesn't have this capability.
The 335i I drove easily hit 6500rpm without breaking a sweat.
The car Mooooooves!!!
A Cadillac 3-fighter will have an incredibly hard time with the 3-series. No wonder it's been the benchmark for all these years.
Your non-answer is taken as a disinclination for high tea and has been noted as such. You have been stricken from the invitee list.
Yikes! we don't get the Dame Edna orange lenses on ours.That certainly takes some getting used to. Having said that, I like the everything about the concept: handsome looks with out being audacious or intimidating + devastating performance in a small RWD package. What's not to like?...except that I don't fit
I'm 190.5 cm... and I had a good 4-5 cm... more headroom and decent legroom. Of course, the seat was all the way down and almost all the way back. But the room was substantial enough to warrant me putting the car on my list of cars to buy.... if I wanted a subcompact.
I suggest you try it.
I love the title of this thread! its great.
SANITIZED: for your viewing pleasure
If I could afford a BMW (which I can't) I'd really like a 530i with a manual box, which you can't get anyway. I'm one of the few people who think the 5 series is a beautiful, evocative design... with the correct choice of wheels.
Mmm....I have been looking at preowned 335i's coupes. They are secksay!!
5 series are great cars as well.
Have some news?
