Replacing a BMW Daytime Running Light
If your dashboard indicator tells you a light is out it may be the Halo /
DRL / Angel eye light that is burned out. It's that cool set of rings
around each headlight. Mark takes you through all the steps and tricks it
takes to change the light yourself if you're the kind of person that likes
to save a couple hundred bucks (Canadian)
BMW E91 335d Acceleration (VERY fast remapped diesel!!)
Just a short vid of my BMW E91 335d, it is not a top speed test! (I'm
letting the throttle go before it reaches top speed)
The engine is not altered, allthough we made a remap.
The numbers are 326hp and 657nm, 0-250 in 30sec.

A Winning Engine
We've raved about the power and flexibility of BMW's twin-turbo, 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine based
on our experience with it in the 3 Series coupe, and the sentiment is much
the same in the convertible. The inline-six makes 300 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and
300 pounds-feet of torque at a low 1,400 rpm. BMW says a
manual-transmission convertible can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
Those are impressive numbers, for sure, but without a rewarding driving
experience to match, they aren't worth much. The 335i convertible doesn't
have to worry about that, though, as the engine feels strong all over the
rev range without any turbo lag. The
engine's power can catch you by surprise, too; before you know it, you'll
be doing 80 without even trying.
Buyers get a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic
transmission with BMW's Steptronic clutchless-manual mode. The convertible
I tested had the six-speed manual, and while it is a slick-shifting
transmission — it pops from gear to gear — and is paired with a
forgiving, easy-engaging clutch, the shifter itself is rather tall, which
discourages the kind of quick shifting a BMW-buying enthusiast is likely to
The convertible cabin is nearly identical to the coupe's, with premium
materials throughout and a clean-looking appearance. The headliner fully
conceals the top's mechanical components from view, and in addition to the
various trim schemes featuring real wood, aluminum and leather, buyers can
decide whether or not they want BMW's controversial iDrive, a knob-based
control system that operates audio and navigation features, among other
Front occupants have power front seats with a memory feature for the
driver. The 335i's seats are covered in leather that features BMW's Sun
Reflective Technology. These seats, along with the armrests, head
restraints and gear selector, are treated with color pigment designed to
reflect the sun's infrared radiation and, according to BMW, keep
dark-colored surfaces cooler by as much as 36 degrees Fahrenheit.
There's technically room for two adults in the backseat, but in reality
that depends on where the front occupants have positioned their seats. The
rear backrest makes passengers sit at an upright angle, which isn't that
comfortable. Backseat headroom is decent, and BMW includes a switch on the
side of the front bucket seats that lets rear passengers move them forward
for more graceful entry and exit.
Besides the standard suite of power equipment like windows, locks and
mirrors, there's a master power-window switch that lowers and raises all of
the windows at once. Additional standard features include a power trunklid,
a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and
a CD audio system.

The 2011 BMW 3-Series ranks 2 out of 21 Upscale Midsize Cars. This ranking
is based on our analysis of 118 published reviews and test drives of the
BMW 3-Series, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
If you are looking for an entry-level luxury sedan that can serve as a
family hauler and emphasizes performance, the 2011 BMW 3-Series is a great
car. If you're shopping for a soft-sprung luxury cruiser, this may not be
the car for you.
When it comes to highly competitive, entry-level luxury sedans there are
few cars that have a unanimous following among auto critics, but the
3-Series is one of them. The BMW 3-Series continues to win over reviewers,
even as the competition becomes stronger. The 3-series has been one of Car
and Driver's "10Best" for 19 consecutive years. Judging from what reviewers
have been saying about the refreshed model, 2011 may make that 20.
It helps that BMW produces the 3-Series with several motors, rear-wheel and
all-wheel drive, and in four different body styles. Whatever your desire
is, likely there is a 3-Series that will fill it.
Although the 3-Series can be considered a luxury car, its design is biased
toward performance. This means the 3-Series has a powerful motor and a
stiff suspension that some may find too brutal for daily, real-world
driving. While this makes for a fun car at the track, the 3-Series has to
compromise other luxury car elements, like a plush ride. Simply put, it is
not as comfortable on the road as a Lexus ES.
If you're shopping for a value buy, the 3-Series may exceed your budget if
you like a lot of options. Pricing for a base 3-Series starts at $34,025,
which seems relatively affordable, but once you start checking the options
box, it becomes expensive quickly. Want AWD? That'll cost you about $2,000,
depending on the body style. Need an automatic? Cough up $1,375. Navigation
adds on another $2,100. But, if you can stomach the price or don't mind
tapping into your kid's college fund, the 3-Series is a car that reviewers
Other Cars to Consider
If you are looking for a comfortable luxury cruiser, the BMW 3-Series is
not the right car for you. Good examples that feature softer seats, a
smoother ride and aren't biased towards sporty driving are the Hyundai
Genesis and Lexus ES. However, if you're shopping for a car with all-wheel
drive, you're out of luck with these two.
If you require an adrenaline rush on your daily commute, the Infiniti G37
may be the right car for the job. The Infiniti's vicious V6 motor makes the
base G37 seem like a performance bargain because it's priced only $100 more
than a base BMW 328i.
But, if you're searching for a car with sumptuous interior, the Audi A4
will be the better pick. The A4's cabin is one of the nicest interiors in
the price range, but its base motor is a bit weak when compared to the base
models from BMW and Infiniti.
BMW 3-Series: The Details
The 2011 BMW 3-Series is the brand's bread and butter; it's BMW's
highest-selling car. Not only are there sedans, coupes, convertibles and
wagons, but there are also rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions.
Additionally, there are several different motors. This means buyers have
the choice of plain Jane, "that's fast," and "oh my!" With that said, we
review the high-performance M3 separately.
For 2011, BMW gives the coupe and convertible some new cosmetic
modifications to their front and rear. Additionally, BMW ditched the older
twin-turbo setup in the 335i for a
single turbo powerplant. Although it may
sound like a bad idea for a performance car, don't worry. The new engine
makes the same power but is more fuel-efficient.
Also new for 2011 are a pair of new models, the 335is coupe and
convertible. For 2011, BMW has pulled the old switcharoo as the standard
335i gets a single turbo motor while the
2011 335is retains the older, bi-turbo
engine."With dynamic capabilities second to none, the 3-Series remains the
benchmark for sporty compacts. A full complement of body styles and
available all-wheel drive add to the appeal. Base prices are reasonable for
this class, though BMW charges extra for popular amenities many competitors
include as standard equipment." -- Consumer Guide
"After awarding 10Best trophies to the BMW 3-series for the last 19 years
in a row, it's clear that we're in love, even through multiple generations
and model changes."--Car and Driver
"The 3 Series' long-running double act is truly extraordinary: It speaks
the language of driving enthusiasts, yet its upscale image and comfortable
interior give it unrivaled mass appeal."--Edmunds
"It's as if Munich's engineers long ago brokered some sweetheart deal with
the devil, so total has been the range's dominance."--Autoblo
