#1 Reason Why I Hate My F30 335i!

I pride myself in keeping my cars in pristine condition to include ensuring they remain low mileage garage queens. My E90 335i had just 10k miles after 2.5 years of ownership. The one challenge I have with my F30 335i is that she drives so fricken awesome that I love spending time with her on the road. I find myself wanting to take drives just to drive my F30. I have been riding my Suzuki Hayabusa less and less because the F30 is such a pleasure to drive.

After 4 months of ownership I would normally only have about 1k miles on my car I am at 1,500 miles and climbing aggressively.

I think I need to buy another F30 and split the miles - LOL!

Yes, I know, cars are to be driven especially BMW's, not sit in garages looking pretty, but for me I like the anticipation of waiting to drive her, when she's been sitting in the garage for a week or two and I take her for a spin, OMG! Wow! Its like pure bliss from all the waiting.

OK, I probably need to seek psychotherapy help, but for the reasons above is the #1 reason why I hate my F30 335i.

P.S. #2 would be that damn Start/Stop function.

1,500 miles at 4 months? You don't really drive all that much. Thats only 4500 miles a year!

I have had my car for 3 months and it has nearly 4k on it. A very nice and very fun 4k miles.

Cars are meant to be driven. Higher millage just means you had more fun

My dad puts more miles on his Ferrari. Why did you even buy the thing?

I'd definitely call the service manager, general manager and owner of the dealership and give them a piece of my mind. Then make sure you express your displeasure and dissatisfaction with BMWNA - IN WRITING! You might want to talk to an attorney about lemon law proceedings as well.

It's ridiculous that when you spend this much on a vehicle that it doesn't live up to your expectations. You're entitled to receive everything you want in life.

It was a fail to begin with. There is not a single question in the original post. There is nothing remotely technical or engaging. No one's learning anything new. There is no news or new development in anything BMW. Shit...it's not even funny.

It's just some weirdo talking about how much he likes his 3-Series and how little he drives it. The threads only natural direction is into a circle-jerk about how many miles people put on their car. Woop-de-doo.

I already find it silly people buying Porsches to let them gather dust in a garage but a 3 series??? lol. If you can't afford to drive it don't buy it. Same goes for Ferrari and other exotics BTW.

Dude, by the time you find a problem with the car the warranty will be over.

Get an E90 M3. You'll forget about F30 quickly, and you get to preserve the mileage.

A nice used pre-LCI E90 M3 should be about 35-40k. Cheaper than another F30.

My dove got to you rather quickly. He's well trained. My buddy Noah taught him well.
