2007 BMW 335 Ci STEPTRONIC Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour

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.
Lexus ES 350 vs BMW 335i 0-60 MPH Mashup Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus ES 350 and the new BMW 335i
have one very important thing in common...they are the most popular cars
that Lexus and BMW builds and sells. For over 15 years the Lexus ES has out
sold every other Lexus model in the Luxury Toyota line-up. The BMW 3 series
is ( and has been) by far the best-selling BMW that the Bavarian car
manufacturer builds. In another fun and informative TFLcar Mashup 0-60 MPH
Drive Review we not only see test to see which car is better but we also
compare both cars to determine which one of these two iconic vehicles is
the best buy for the money. So is the 2013 Lexus ES 350 or the 2013 BMW
335i the better entry level sport and luxury ride? You'll have to watch
this video to find out.
Comparison Test: 2007 BMW 335i vs. 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350
BMW and Mercedes-Benz are separated by about 150 miles and a rivalry as
fierce as the one between Coke and Pepsi.
BMW builds the 2007 335i Sedan in the Bavarian city of Munich, while
Mercedes-Benz has just released the all-new 2008 C350 Sport from its
headquarters in the Swabian city of Stuttgart. Though Mercedes has long had
the upper hand in terms of both stature and commercial success in Europe,
the BMW 3 Series outsells the Mercedes-Benz C-Class by more than a 2-to-1
margin in the U.S., some 120,180 to 50,187 last year.
