Again based on my experience Mercedes are more reliable. Although our glk has left us stranded also. You are correct e92 335 lol. Love and hate relationship.

Not a fan of the new bmws (except Ms). Look wise and the way they drive (3 and 4 series). I prefer the look and interior of the new benzes.

If you are changing them every few years then yes you won’t have many issues. Once four years hits I swear there is something in the computer that automatically self destructs. I like to keep my cars for a long time that’s probably part of the issue.

And westopher if ur calling my car a piece of shit there is only one way to settle this. Race wars. Although I have a feeling my car will explode.

Lol they aren’t actually pieces of shit in any sense other than reliability. It is a shame though bmw stepped outside their comfort zone of engineering with that car and didn’t get it right with the turbos/fuel delivery system unfortunately.

Are 335i's that bad if you budget like $1 to 2k a year on maintaining it?

i paid peanuts for it with high k's put a couple grand into it for maintenance issues and it runs like a champ now.. 430whp / 480 torq ...ran 11.9... they are going down in price now and power to $$$ ratio is hard to beat

2007 E92 335i / VRSF 5" FMIC / VRSF Charge Pipe / VRSF DCI / TurboSmart Plumb Back DV / XHP / E40 Custom Tune by Wedge / Apex ARC8 / Michelin PS4S / 11.95 @ 116

I would agree. As long as you have a garage and are mechanically inclined these are great cars to own especially if you are going to toss some extra power at them. They handle the power great. The problem I think most have is they

a) don't have garage space
b) don't have a clue how to work on cars
c) are scared shitless because of threads like these

But for a car guy with tools and space they are great $ to power value

and if you wanna make some serious power pick up a single turbo kit from docrace for 5k US and you are into 700+ whp without touching the internals

I owned a couple of BMW's and wasn't too happy with them at all:

New 2010 X3 every 2 years the 4x4 light always came on with no reason, the heated seats didn't work after 3 years of usage. got rid of the car in 2015.

New 2015 X5 the car squeaked since day one and the dealership could find what was the issue and took apart the car and put it back together and still couldn't figure it out. Got rid of this after a year of owning it.

Personally, I will not buy a BMW again.

Well they are now since they are 10-15k cars. They sure as fuck weren't for the first owner.

Owned a 09 E92 M3 with a tune and full exhaust, no issues for three years just did reg maintenance. Also had a 08 E90 M3 for just under two years, again no issues other than reg maintenance. Sold first one to buy/finish house and sold second one because I didn’t like the 6spd. We now leased a ‘18 X1 for 4 years, maint is covered for the term so don’t care about reliability...too much. I just generally love the feel of their cars.

Yup, just in time for the next owner to begin rebuilding all the suspension bushings and drivetrain components
