BMW 335i Coupe, or BMW M3?


I just trun 18 this last april, and my parents want to buy me a new car, i curently drive a escalde pickup, becuase my dad thinks it is safer! i have the choice between a 335i or a new bmw m3? do u think the M3 has to much power for me? My range is around $60,000.

Ignore the price squabbling responses. I am speaking to you objectively. Buy the 335i coupe. Why? Don’t purchase an M3 until you’ve had the proper instruction on how to control it. At their plant in South Carolina BMW has a performance driving school. I highly recommend you enroll in the starter classes and work your way up to the M school.

It may sound like you’re Settling for the 335i but to be honest the new engine in that coupe is brilliant. A naturally aspirated, 300hp, twin-turbo, dual-vanos, inline-6 with 300lb of toque? C’mon! That kind of power on top of BMWs amazing handling is a no brainer. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into an F1 compared to your shitty Cadillac (sorry but Caddy’s are absolutely worthless – no offense to you personally!).

Bmw 335i Vs M3

If I were you I would get the BMW M3 just because its much nicer and more refined than a 335i. I was 17 when i got my 2006 bmw m3 and its the type of car your never gonna forget. Too bad e92 m3 wernt out yet at that time otherwise I woulda of gotten one instead of e46. Yeah anyways get a coupe e92 m3 semi-loaded should cost around low 60,000’s + tax if you can afford it. Otherwise you can go 335i which isnt bad either. All depends what you want on a car. 416 horsepower is definately too much for you but you’ll get used to it eventually like I did haha. Just make sure you dont hit that sport mode button until you get used to that throttle response.
Dont get discourage what people say, just drive safely and have fun doing so 😉 hope this helps

– 335i is NOT NA engine as said above

Both of those cars have too much power for a inexperienced driver. A new M3 is about $70k and has more power and performance than most anyone at any age can handle. Good luck with any BMW even a 328 and please come back and let us all know when you crash it. A new 335 has enough power for a guy with 20 years of experience to get into trouble easily. FYI the wait for a M3 is also about 9 months so maybe in that time you can find a more sensible vehicle. I would suggest starting with a car like a Volkswagen GTI that has far less power and when you learn to drive using every drop of power the VW has without crashing then step up to a BMW. A M3 if driven properly using all of it’s power requires some skill and experience just like not everyone can get behind the wheel of Jeff Gordon’s race car and drive it at 180-190 mph like he does each and every week.

I got a Porsche Boxster S for my first car and I love it, but it is just too small. I’m trading it in for the 2008 335i Coupe. I just test drove it. Great car! I’d love the M3, but I live in Chevy Chase, MD right outside of the District of Columbia, and the roads are way too rough for an M3, the traffic is too heavy to, but if you live in an area with great roads and no traffic, get the M3. The dealer near my house has a waiting list that is 10 months long!!!!

Your dad is an idiot. Both for giving a kid a 60,000 dollar car, and for thinking that it’s safer to put a teenager behind the wheel of a truck than a car.

Also, you aren’t getting a new M3 for 60 grand. That may be the sticker price, but that is not the price that people are paying.

If you want a BMW, get an E30 or E34…the last BMWs with any STYLE.

Not good car for being 18, but who am i to judge…..

335i….the m3 will be stiff and hard to live with, plus the 335 makes a great sound

They are both great cars. I would choose the 335 because its cheaper but still has great options. It 300 HP. Also, the money you spend on a M3 wont have any options. You can get a fully loaded 335 for less than 60,000. Also, you can get a hard-top convertible 335.
