The car is more expensive than other comparable options, but you get a premium vehicle for those premium costs.

2013 BMW 3 Series

I like the feel and drive of a luxury car over my last car (2010 ford focus), it makes a noticeable difference in ride quality. The cabin aesthetics and internal components are also higher quality - you can't hear pieces rattling from slamming the doors, playing music loudly, or rough roadways. I love having a sunroof because I really like natural light. The engine is lively and you can feel the torque produced from the turbo charged 4-cylinder. It's fun to drive. However, the car is expensive. I've replaced 2 tires in the past 9 months and they are not cheap. They have to be run flat tires since BMW doesn't supply spares. The vehicle also requires premium gas and more insurance coverage (and costs). My warranty covers mechanical failures, but regular maintenance is expensive by itself.

The amazing qualities of this unique vehicle.

2013 BMW 3 Series 335i

This car has been by far the best car I have ever owned. Performance wise it definitely does not disappoint. It has 3 different driving modes that each give a different driving experience. The eco is very good on gas, while the comfort mode which also had great gas mileage but uses more features. The sport mode has paddle shifters, as long as the generic shifter settings. For one car to have do many different modes and experiences is next generation for sure. There are backseat and rear window shades and also it has a sunroof. Another neat quality is how the door unlocks with just the touch of your hand, and the trunk with just a wave of the foot.

Great vehicle, big responsibility.

2013 BMW 3 Series

BMW is a high maintenance car, to be a BMW owner you have to be willing to be more responsible than you would be getting a American car. Due to the fact that BMW is not a American brand, getting parts is more expensive and harder to get a hold of. They can be great cars but missing something as simple as a oil change, not using a good quality fuel or high mile routine, can give you trouble. Great company and built cars as far as cosmetics and drive but they are known for breaking down. When buying a BMW it is best to by brand new or with one owner. Also be prepared to have a bigger responsibility as opposed to a Honda or Toyota. Wonderful car.
