Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the one bimmer we’ve been all waiting for and the one that brings that much craved for exhaust note. Being in the BMW world for quite some time now, I often come across BMW fans and owners that brag about one thing first: the exhaust sound of their bimmers.
But with the introduction of the recent turbo engines that specific exhaust sound was less intriguing than in a high revved naturally aspirated engine and believe me, I’ve heard all about it.
Don’t fear anymore, if you can’t afford the M3 or M5 at this point, the 335is comes to save the day. Sure, it’s not an M car, we’ve been over this already, but it’s more than a decent compromise for those of you looking for a new performance sporty car.

335is comes packing 320hp at 5,900 rpm and 332lb-ft of torque is available from 1,500-5,000 rpm. The engineers have tweaked the twin-turbo 3-liter motor to have an overboost function that increases torque to 370lb-ft. The overboost function comes into play at higher engine speeds and gears. BMW has also fitted a sport exhaust system that has a deeper “rumble” at low speeds and rpm.
