I like that people are attracted to it. Most people think its a big deal when i mention I have a BMW

manual transmission is fun to drive but the delayed response in the throttle pedal is annoying. The seat is comfortable. The shifting is fun. Not super thrilled with the twin turbo power it has. was hoping for more. Leaks oil a little bit right onto the exhaust manifold causing it to smoke and smell like burning oil frequently. Very smooth car to drive though and all around fun.

Own the road and turn heads.

Performs like a true sports car hugging the curves making it super fun to drive. It is fairly comfortable although somewhat difficult to climb in and out of especially if you are older. Also their is very limited luggage space. The convertible top goes down or up with a simple push of a button. And I really get a lot of attention when I am riding with the top down!

- Lucille D

In conclusion, I only dislike the BMW trunk and it is blinkers.

As you see, I currently have a 335i BMW. I love the features, what I dislike is how the trunk is. I wish it would lift up on its own. I have to make sure I always close it properly and locks. I wish the voice command was more updated but. Of course this is a 2007 car. I�d like the blinkers to have a sort of design not like the plain ones you get to see daily.

Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the PCV valve heater, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 18, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag module or inflator depending on the vehicle model, free of charge. Parts are not currently available.

Report Receipt Date:
Nov 12, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V564000
Summary:
BMW of North America LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2006 325i, 325xi, 330i, 330xi sedans and 325xi sports wagons, model year 2007 328i, 328xi, 335i, 335xi sedans and 328i and 328xi sports wagons, model year 2006-2007 525i, 525xi, 530i, 530xi, 550i sedans and 530xi sports wagons, model year 2006 760i sedans, model year 2006-2007 750i, 750Li, and 760Li sedans, and model year 2006 X5 sports activity vehicles, equipped with certain seat types. The front passenger seat occupant detection mat that determines if and how the passenger frontal air bag should deploy in a crash may fatigue and develop cracks which could lead to a system failure.
Consequence:
Should the system fail, in the event of a crash, the front passenger air bag would be deactivated, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners with an interim notification letter in January 2014 since parts are not currently available. When parts are available, anticipated to be in March 2014, BMW will send a second letter and dealers will repair the occupant detection mat to eliminate the possibility that it may crack, free of charge. Additionally, owners of model year 2006-2007 3 Series with standard seats, 5 Series with comfort seats, and Z4 models, will receive an extended warranty on their front passenger seat occupant detection mat. Owners may contact BMW customer relations at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.

Summary:
BMW is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 1-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured December 2007 through July 2011; and 2007-2011 3-Series coupes and convertibles manufactured March 2007 through July 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sedans manufactured March 2007 through October 2011; 2007-2011 3-Series sports wagons manufactured March 2007 through June 2011; and 2009-2011 Z4 vehicles manufactured March 2009 through June 2011.

Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the positive battery cable connector and secure it with an improved method, free of charge. The recall began on March 13, 2013. Owners may call BMW at 1-800-525-7417 or email BMW at CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
