Question Help Buying a 3 Series

Hi everyone,

Im in a delama, i am not sure which one of the 3 series model is going to treat me right.

I personaly like to buy a 2006-2007 335I but as per the searches i have done, this model will give me alot of problems with the high pressure fuel pump, and again its got 2 turbos which could break and its an extra thing to fix on a car. But all in all i love the original power and the power gain on this model.

My second choice so far is a 330i, if i cant find a clean one for a good price then i might settle for a 328 or even a 325. What do you guys think of these models?


Please let me know what you think of these models, I dont want to buy something and break my pocket after as the costs for repairing kill.

and by the way, what parts have you guys changed on your cars and what have they costed you?

Thanks in advance.

335 has risks but high performance
328 and 325 look the part and can be dressed up, but don't perform
330i is a balance.

you need to figure out how important performance is to you. they all handle very similar with the same chassis and suspension package.

realistically top speed should not matter because we cant drive at 100+mph on our interstates with any frequency.

the only factor becomes acceleration. how bad do you need the ability to get up to speed quickly?

do you do a lot of passing? highway driving? city? stop and go? all of those have different acceleration needs.

me personally... i do not drive around with the gas pedal floored unless i am on an on ramp or trying to pass someone. for this reason i would not benefit from a 335. i would like that extra acceleration but not to the point it is worth spending money and having reliability issues.

don't buy more car than you need, especially if you will have more shit that breaks.
