Besides the airconditioning system being mediocre, My passenger seat goes off when empty. Since it is intermittant and not showing an error signal, dealer will not repair. Have to keep seatbelt locked at all times without a passenger. BUT additionally, I paid for a car with keyless entry which just recently is dying. Have to put key in to start, sometimes can't even get doors to open (or trunk) even when using the key fob and standing right ext to the car! Again, if it would totally die out, maybe the dealer would correct. I am so unhappy with the electronics, it takes away from the awesomeness of the drive.
Very fun car to drive. However early on I had to replace 2 fuel pumps on BMW's dime(BMW has since taken care of this issue). Another issue I have is with the sport trim which is aluminum. It scratches and dings very easily. I have not had any other problems and the car still makes me smile every time I drive it after 4 years. As far as the drive goes I would say it is what you'd expect from a real sports car (it's called road feel) but the 335 is smoother than most. I find it to be the perfect combo of a sports car and a good daily driver. Happy Motoring!
Purchased new with sport package and ride is too hard. It seemed fun at first but even small bumps feel and sound rough. Rear keeps wearing tires. Replaced rear tires at 13,000 and had alignment done. Next day a friend told me my wheels looked like they were leaning in at the top, I thought he was joking but I told him it's fine I just had it aligned for $180 and 2 new tires at $1,000! Guess what?, 5000 miles later rear tires worn on the inside and West German BMW said I must have hit a pot hole. BS! I am getting it aligned again at another dealer Saturday and I guess I will see where it goes. BMW Customer relations seems like they really do not care. Not the Ultimate driving experience and no cost maintenance I expected. There is a slight hesitation when I hit the gas, I guess that is the turbo lag that I read this car should not have.
