Great thread, thanks. My wife and I got a good laugh. The day we were there, it was raining, but we are already planning the 5er replacement in 2012. I've saved this link in my planning folder.

So I guess I'm safe here, one per house hold, per four or five years. I guess I keep my cars longer that the average. I've already put 2011 and 15 ED's on my travel schedule.

Is it just me? This looks like a downsized 5 series. Love the look of my '07 vert, not too wild about this. My next car to replace is my 5er in 2012. Hope I like that model change in 2011.

335 Burning Oil, Normal?

I seem to be burning about a quart every 3,500 miles. The service advisor at my dealer says that's normal and actually better than average.

What is your experience?

Go with the stick

My new 335 vert is my 5th car, 5th stick and 5th BMW, but first with iDrive. The placement of the shifter, iDrive nob and center console are just right for me. Buy and enjoy.

The top isn't convered on the extended warranty. I don't think even the motor for the top is. That's why I didn't rush to buy it.

The OP said he is a mapquest guy. I used google maps all the time. I haven't used it since I got the Nav and don't miss the paper and waste. I hope this goole maps feature comes to the US soon.

I have typically kept my BMW's for well over 5 years. My hope now (after my ED experience) is to replace more frequently and do more ED trips.

I have a 2000 528 and the E93 335. You are going to give up a lot of back seat and trunk space. I hope that doesn't matter, because this new car is great.
