While the engine doesn't have the low-end thrust of the twin-turbo 335i and its unique 3. Fantastic auto, Stage 2 Dinan as well. The 335i and 335xi are powered by a heavily modified, twin-turbocharged version of the same 3. I have owned 3 series sedan, coupe, and convertible. Rear seat room was surprisingly good thanks to the carved out toe room and sculpted front seats that give the impression of relative airiness. The stability control system integrates several features designed to improve braking performance, such as periodically wiping the brake rotors when the windshield wipers are in use wet brakes don't stop so well and snugging the pads to the rotors when the driver abruptly lifts off the throttle, which quickens brake responsiveness. Drives well in the snow, totes a good amount of cargo when then seats are folded down, has tons of safety features, and overall I can drive in all weather conditions.
After about a week, my wife decided to take it to the store by herself. The G35, however, has made inroads in the 3 Series' market by offering a similar driving experience at a better value, with its powerful V-6 and longer list of standard features. Consequence If there is a loss of electrical power to the vehicle, the vehicle may unexpectedly stall, increasing the risk of a crash. The engine provides acceleration that should satisfy the majority of buyers; the run from zero to 60 mph comes in 6. I am lucky that I am still alive.
Most notable is the addition of the 335xi coupe, which adds all-wheel drive to the turbocharged 3 Series two-door. The convertible carries over unchanged. Despite its potent power plants, the 3 Series remains fuel efficient. The convertible's available industry-first heat-reflective leather does a wonderful job of keeping occupants' posteriors cool. The heavier 335xi and convertible 335i are a tad slower. The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time.
Very dangerous car on the highway with this chronic issue. Whether you are whipping around town or stretching its legs out in the countryside, the 135i conjures up emotions that will not soon be forgotten. In the trunk, the thin carpet houses similarly cheap plastic pull panels to get at equipment underneath. The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. Available in rear-wheel drive coupe or convertible form, the new 1 Series comes with a powerful and efficient 3.
The car turns harder at lower speeds than it does at higher ones, for example. The coupe also has a sport-tuned suspension while the convertible has a power-retractable hardtop. Special alright, a special P. We just wish there were more room in the cabin to better enjoy those qualities. The high pressure fuel pump has a defect.
Driving Impressions Though slotted between the base 328i and hot rod M3, the 335i has a special sport suspension and incredible twin-turbo six cylinder that is flat out fast; faster than the last generation M3. I must be one of the lucky ones. I have a few minor gripes about the car such as no dip-stick and the rain sensing wiper switch being a little hard to locate the first time, and the window switches are a little too far forward for my taste. The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. Interior Comfort and Ergonomics The interior is good but not great. The lack of headroom and legroom in the center seat make this bench better suited for two. Each time that I took the car in, I was told that the software needed to be tweeked.
The downside of folding hardtops is that they're heavy and that the top can hog most of the trunk space when down. In performance testing, the turbocharged 3 Series sedan and coupe raced up to 60 mph in fewer than 5 seconds -- about the same as the last M3. The convertible offers a reasonable cargo hold when the hardtop is up, but it shrinks considerably when the top is lowered. Top speed is electronically-limited to 150 mph. Perfect color and combination for cop bait! Burl walnut, poplar and aluminum trim are available. As always, it provides a tremendous mix of handling, ride quality, performance, luxury and styling.
Ostensibly, this is to help hold you in under aggressive driving and proved to be a good thing in the twisties. Consequence If there is a loss of electrical power to the vehicle, the vehicle may unexpectedly stall, increasing the risk of a crash. All oft-used controls, especially the manual transmission shifter, are well within reach of the driver. They should offer incentives to turn in the car. Most notable is the addition of the 335xi coupe, which adds all-wheel drive to the turbocharged 3 Series two-door.
We just wish there were more room in the cabin to better enjoy those qualities. After driving for about 20k it mysteriously started to cough and sputter in the middle of the road one night. In government crash tests, the sedan and wagon received four out of five stars for frontal collision protection and five stars for side protection. However, the 3-series has a folding rear seat and a 16-inch-wide trunk pass through to accommodate the must-have set of golf clubs under the folded roof. Thanks to the car's hill-holder feature, a manual transmission 3 Series is less prone to rolling backward when accelerating on an incline.
