Cons:
- not good mileage so far and I'm using premium fuel
- car gets dirty very quick (maybe because of the recent rains? LOL)
- Brakes are not as strong as they were in my E90
I agree with all on accounts !!

I am getting worse mileage than my E36 328i

I drive both car the same way, pushing them and revving them whenever i can... for the same amount of fuel tank, i seem to be able to go about 30miles more on the E36 than the F30....

i will have to look at this more in details....
but right now i am still loving how
the F30 exhaust and burble, and showing my car's body around town with its DLR ...

I haven't got the chance to really test the brakes...

True - they're not the most attractive wheels I've seen on a Beemer.

If they were in the Big Brother House, they'd be called Becky.

335i F30:

Pros
- Exhaust Note! This is what made me get the 335
- 8 Spd Sport Auto - So nice and high tech with super quick shifts

Cons
- Non LED turn signals - makes the car look dated

That's the way I'm leaning but the color combo could decide between m sport and sport line. Need to see some more m sports out there in different colors and need to see the red leather in person

You can always do something "different" and get EB with CR....and then become SUPERMAN...

Good luck!

I probably wouldn't mind it as much if it remembered the last setting. There are times I get in the mood for Eco pro and ass and times I'm not. Why is it that I have to put Eco pro mode on but am but I am forced to turn ass off?

I just don't find a need to turn it off 99.9% of the time. Other than stop lights there are rarely situations when the engine would turn off, and I'm happy to save fuel while sitting at a light.

in the AT if you slide it to the side to get into DS then it will never shut off...is there nothing besides hitting the ASS off button every time on an MT ?

Best
Interior trim and finish is gorgeous
Zippy acceleration and tight handling at mid to high speeds
Head Up Display

Worst
Very poor city mileage unless you drive very conservatively
Slow acceleration from dead stop to about 25 mph
Auto-Start Stop seems half baked.

Keep the clutch depressed. I do this if I think the light is going to change soon or I am in a line slowly advancing to turn right, etc.

I think the A.S.S on the MT works flawless. If its a short stop keep fut on clutch and it will not shut off. moving off from a stop just go with the natural flow of things sink clutch and put in 1st gear and go.
