2008 BMW 335xi Reviews

Hopefully I am replying to the post in 2012 (and ones from 2019)about the noisy tires. Just bought Michelin MXV4 ZP (zero pressure) run flats from a local discount tire to me in indianapolis IN for 150 per tire. They are so quiet compared to the prior Turanza El42s I can't believe it.

Bought my 33xi used with 8,000 miles. The run flat tires are terrible - rough, jarring ride. Huge improvement when I switched to 18" BBS rims. Am worried I have a fuel pump issue

Great car. Well balanced. Good comfort.
I an selling and purchasing a new Audi A4 after only 35,000 miles.
TIRE NOISE. Dealer suggested 528xi at $50K to solve THEIR problem.
Have loved BMW since 2004, 2002. Enjoyed the 335xi and am going crazy with tire noise which BMW does not care to address.
Good buy? No.

This is an amazingly fast car, but the suspension is horrible. If you hit any pothole, a daily occurance if you drive in the Northeast, it's a jarring experience. My coffee container literally flies out of the cupholder. All four of my tire rims are bent. As a former 325i owner, I don't know if it's simply the four-wheel drive suspension or the run-flat tires. Regardless, it's dangerous.

I love everything about this car no problem yet.
