Well you have an 07 and those are plagued with the most problems, get a newer 335? Also might want to consider an S5/4, used M3, IS, C Class, F30 328 (these are tunable), wait it out for the F32. Just throwing out other cars I would consider if I was in your predicament.

Though I would never actually do it, I like the look of the new Kia Optima.

I traded my FBO RB meth 335i for a built Evo and cash. After $15k more into the Evo its still not finished and I'm still dumping money in this car. Don't get an Evo if you're looking for dependable. Get an infinity G37 or a Lexus ISF or something. Something stock. Even a genesis or BRZ. Modified and dependable don't usually go together.

exactly what I think.
KIA has really worked great on their cars.
look at the shape, it looks like an Jaguar.
Much better looking than those outdated Hondas/Toyotas.

This is crucial time. Invest your money in your future.
When I could afford a used BMW, I bought a new Lancer. Its all about setting your priorities and long term future.
The money you put into cars, is going to depreciate.
Make a smart decision.
Good luck.

Like I tell anyone who will listen that if looking for reliability buy a Lexus...Numbing to drive but always delivers.All German cars need attention but then again nothing drives quite like a 3.

Not really trying to bash BMW. I just want to try new things like a mustang and camaro I mean i've driven a 328i, 335i, porsche 911 turbo, gtr, m3, c63s and my 550. So yeah pretty much i've driven a lot of luxury/sports cars and never even sat in a american car except for a escalade. Also the wrangler and grand cherokee is on my list is because it snows a lot here in CO and they are reasonably priced suv's that will do well in the snow.

Well, it really depends on where you grew up. I was visiting vancouver and I saw 18-22 year olds with m3s, ferrari 458s/California's, lambos and all sorts of expensive cars.

Whoa, had no idea Vancouver had rich residents like that. That's awfully irresponsible though. That's asking for your kid to be killed in a car accident.

Sounds like the problems you've had are just normal issues with the car. Either just accept it (sounds like you've had most of them, so they should be out of the way now) or trade it in for a newer one, if you want to stay with the hp/ style of car.

I'd trade mine in for a really big mallet with which I'd bash the brains out of those who insist on lecturing strangers on the internet on how to spend their money.

328i are good, but Hondas are out of this world when comes to reliability and how cheap parts and labor are! Get a accord V6 with low miles for about 12k

Those Masarati's are beautiful cars....but if you're talking that level of money look at the Jaguar XK-R. More power, better track performance, and looks to die for.
Supercharged 5.0 liter V8. 510 HP.
