Well those fools over @BimmerFile.com have been graced with the means to put out a full review of the new 335i sport sedan. Looks like a mini-5 to me which isn’t ever a bad thing. I’m lovin’ the HUD and sexy sport shifter. Head on over and checkout what those guys are saying about this sweet new lil’ devil!
“While the new 328i gets its motivation from the all-new N20 four-cylinder, power for the 2012 335i comes from the same engine that powered the outgoing 335i. Namely, the single-turbo N55 engine, sweeping 3.0-liters of volume and making 300 horsepower at 5400 rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 4000 rpm. And just like before, the standard-issue gearbox is a six-speed manual. This combination is one we’ve become quite familiar with in the last couple years as BMW has gradually worked into the 135i, 535i and 640i. Clutch take-up is light but predictable and the shifter feels accurate, if not outright precise or completely sporty. Not surprisingly, the experience feels immediately familiar, even in the minty-fresh F30 chassis.”
