What made you buy your 3 series?

Ever since I could drive I wanted to buy a 3 series BMW. It was the car of my dreams. Though I'm only 18, I figure if you dream big you can achieve a lot. Once I started looking into pricing on the 328i vs the 335i, the 328i seemed like the safer option.. and then I test drove them both.. The test drive chose for me within the first 500 feet lol. You can't drive a 335i without wanting to buy it IMO.

What made you choose your BMW?

Safety, reliability, AWD, cost, decent on gas, price. For 40k (Canadian) there aren't too many cars that give you as good of a bang for your buck.

Well that's the thing I tell everybody, because normally 23 year olds don't drive cars like these. Real reason was that its an amazing car and while I couldn't afford/didn't want a 335 right now the 328 is still an amazing car to drive and look at. I have zero regrets about buying my car. I love everything about it. In the 14 months I've had it its given me 25k trouble free miles (knock on wood).

The N54 is the only reason I ever considered a 3 series.

The test drive. After the limited 4 turn, 1 mile loop around the dealership, i convinced my SA to let me take the 335i out on my own...put it to the floor the second i pulled out of the dealership. That sold it for me. I made a U-turn and had them write up the paperwork

Had an Audi A4 quattro, then a Mercedes C300 4matic and now onto BMW.

Always had a preference for German cars and wanted to see what the ultimate driving machine was all about (sucker for advertising).

I wanted a manual transmission, rwd, sporting station wagon. It was this or a Cadillac CTS-V, and doing "Detroit Delivery" is not nearly as much fun as going to Munich to pick up a BMW.

As to 328i vs 335i, well, even if I had a choice I would have bought the 328i, my penis is quite large enough, no need to compensate.

Work really hard. No offense sir, but what I do is none of your business. I'm not a spoiled teenager like a lot of kids who's parents buy them cars. I was always taught to earn things by working hard, not by having things handed to you.
