2011 BMW 3 Series - A car with two personalities.

The 2011 BMW 335i is a car with two different personalities. The first personality is that of a capable, competent highway cruiser. The coupe version of this car is ideal for two adults and a weekend's worth of luggage. The second personality of the 2011 BMW 335i is that of a rocket ship. To enable rocket ship mode, just put the transmission lever into the sport position, turn off traction control and drop your right foot. Once the turbo comes on, this car is a beast! Luckily, it has brakes and suspension to match its acceleration.
Story
I had valet parked my vehicle at a hotel one weekend. When my car was retrieved by the valet, a pair of older gentlemen were looking at the car in admiration. They were a little surprised when I said excuse me and proceeded to get in the car and drive away (I look pretty young).
Pros
The top positive things about this vehicle are the turbocharged engine, the 4 wheel disc brakes, and the sport seats. The interior creature comforts are that of a luxury car with a good stereo. The driver controls are intuitively placed and the car is comfortable to drive for hours. Interior road and wind noise are minimal and what one would expect from a car of this price and caliber.
Cons
Some of the negative aspects of the 2011 BMW 335i are that the air conditioning is weak by American car standards. Another negative is that you pay for the fun aspects of this car in gas and tires. The car requires Z-rated tires that are very responsive, but don't last very long, especially when in rocket ship mode! An annoying negative is that some of the exterior rubber trim has failed after exposure to the California sun, but it was fixed under warranty.

My vehicle is a small 4-door sedan that gets about 25 mpg combined gas mileage. The car is of good quality despite having over 100k miles on her at this point. She drives well, like most German engineering, and handles like she wants to be driven. She's feels heavy but steady. A little tight on internal space and storage/passenger room. She does a good job being a commuter that's still fun and at a great price.
Story
I remember taking a 4-hour road trip in the car to Las Vegas with my best friend and being pretty comfortable for the duration, which I would say is pretty uncommon.
Pros
The things I liked most about this car are the German engineering, the heavy and stable feel to her handling, good acceleration, good gas mileage (not great and driver dependent), and sporty feel. She's relatively smart, and maintenance is relatively straight forward despite having over 100k miles on her. I'm a big fan of utility, and true to German cars, there are a lot of things that feel natural and very 'common sense' about the car. I especially like the navigation system/built-in display.
Cons
The most glaring con to this car is the size, which is a predictable trade off for many of the benefits (size, mileage, sporty handling). She's tight in the cabin, especially for passengers. The trunk space has been sufficient thus far, though anything oversize is not getting moved in this car. Additional con, and a weird observation, is that the buttons for the winds are very far forward on the arm rest for the front seats. It's weird but feels off. I also wish the steering wheel had a mute/off button for the radio. It bothers me that I have to reach the center console to achieve this... (more)

This was the most pleasant car buying experience that I have ever had. The salesman fit my payment and price range requirements without hesitation. I did not have to haggle, which made the experience very positive.

I went to this dealership because I wanted to buy an old BMW 328i because I heard they were cars that were well-built and were great at mileage. I went there as a first time buyer and the salesman gave me a great price on the car. He was really helpful and got the car on the same day I went.
