I have a 2010 335i and a 2004 G35. Guess what... I'm about to replace the G35 with another 335i.

Mein Auto: 2007 335i
2007 335i coupe and 1999 Integra sedan. The Integra is my daily driver and i barely drive the 335i once a week. Thinking about selling the 335i since i don't drive it. Looking to replace it with 2014 Lexus IS350....Lexus interior is just so much superior than the BMW and i love the look of the new Lexus.

Mein Auto: 2009 E90 328xi MT
2008 Xterra 4WD manual transmission. Love her for camping/offroading/snowboarding/etc in the mountains.

The BMW is more fun to drive around town and on paved mountain roads, but I love driving the Xterra off road in Moab, or over some cool passes in Colorado.

They each serve their purpose and have their strengths, so my choice of which one I prefer driving depends entirely on where Im driving to. Im lucky to always be driving something fun.

'10 328 Coupe MT, and '07 Lexus GS 350. Cross-country I've driven and enjoyed both. When I need four doors, or am in stop-and-go traffic, it's the automatic Lexus hands down.

I have an '07 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Nothing like it in the summer with the top down, but now with the new 335 it is a tough choice.

Smart. I wish we had a nicer car for our dogs. Would love something like allroad for them. We use an 05 carolla for the pups and have an 07 a4 and 13 a4 as daily drivers. (My 3er was a lemon).

Have a '07 335i, '97 C5 Corvette, '12 Genesis Coupe 3.8, '08 Avalanche, Coming soon is a 350z...I'm partial to my Bimmer but I'd have to say that out of all of them I can't really pick a total favorite.

2007 Nissan Murano - actually a good-handling and quick car for a crossover.



And my personal car is a 1983 Datsun 280ZX Turbo..I have the head off it right now to replace some broken manifold studs.

The 280ZZ was one of my favorites. Commuted from the Jersey Shore to Wall St for years in the 1981 model. Then it saw my three daughters through High School & college.

Finally my youngest daughter used it as a commuter car for her first job. Went to "Make a Wish" about 3 years ago. Still on the original power package.

I like the '69 Mach I in the background. I had one like it in high school (except mine had a 428SCJ where the one in the photo looks to have the 351 W hood call out).

I also frequently drive "what ever is at the end of the driveway" My wife and I have five vehicles (1987 Toyota MR2, 1990 Mazda Miata, 2002 F-150, 2006 BMW 325i and a 2010 Toyota Corolla) and a driveway that narrows to one lane.

I still haven't repaired the "bashed" out sunroof damage (working on the Victorian home as well as about eight work related projects) so the 325i sits in the garage most days.

I love the MR2 (bought it one year old in 1988) but she is a garage queen and only comes out on pristine guaranteed rain free sunny days.

The Corolla is the wife's car and while it is a great appliance and actually drives pretty well for what it is (a 4 cyl econo-car) it is never the car that I choose to drive for fun or pleasure.

The F-150 is a comfortable and capable vehicle for a full size truck, but it is a truck and I'm NOT a "truck guy" so I only drive it when I have to haul stuff or pull a trailer.

So that leaves the Miata. If the temperature is above 40 degrees and it's not raining I reach for the Miata keys every time, at least for trips of less than an hour.

You just can't beat a Miata in the "fun to drive" category especially if the sun is shining.

The Mustang was originally a 351 Windsor 4MT that was converted to an automatic by a prior owner. I converted to a 351 Cleveland & back to a 4MT for my nephew.

How are you enjoying the 135is compared to the 335is?

What other car do you drive beside your BMW?

My mom's '08 335i, my dad's '98 Tahoe, my '97 528i and our nearly completed project '79 Chevy c10 stepside

I can't say that I have a favorite... They all have their pros and cons
