Mein Auto: '06 Sonora/Beige 330i :-)

So not being up on the F30 3 series I am interested in any opinions from people on this forum about the 335i. All the car magazines seem to have road tested the 4 cylinder 328 but I haven't seen a review of the 335i.

With the same engine (well minus one turbo) as my current 5 series I would expect it to be faster than my current car. The factory 0 to 60 times are a little dissapointing but I know BMW is usually very conservative in these figures.

Would love to hear from someone with a new 335i to see how they like their car.

With the latest edition of the 5 Series driving more like a 7 series I think I may be better off going down to the 3 series to have a better handling car. And I haven't verified this yet but am guessing that the new 3 series is about the same dimensions as my original 2004 540i.

I appreciate the knowledge and insight of those on this board and look forward to your input.

Thanks in advance.

I get really attached to my cars. One reason I don't lease. You have a really nice 5er there. LOVE the M193s! (I used to have a ZHP.) The F30 is brand new. You could hold onto your 5er a few more years and get an F30 later on down the road.

Then and Than are different words and they are not interchangeable.
