It’s sad to see the BMW F30 3 Series go. After all, we hung out with it for the last several years in various shapes and forms and the vehicle did nothing but to impress us. And this is especially true for the more performance-oriented variants – such as the BMW 335i or the M3. Sure, it got replaced by the somewhat more potent BMW 340i in the recent years. However, the good old 335i still poses one of the most potent punches – slotted right below the much-famed M3 – providing an impressive bang for your buck factor.
The BMW 335i is powered by a 3.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine churning out 300 horsepower powering the rear wheels. The vehicle comes with a fast and easy to use 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with Adaptive Transmission Control (ATC). Thus, the BMW 335i can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.5 seconds. The vehicle is able to accelerate to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
Placed just a tad below the pure-bred high-performance machines, the BMW M3 and BMW M4, this is for many, the perfect balance of power, performance, and aesthetics. Furthermore, this particular Estoril Blue BMW 335i features a set of lightweight aftermarket wheels. In turn, it showcases an even more appealing and aggressive exterior look.
These flows formed wheels come from Forgestar, and were installed by Mod Bargains, a local Los Angeles tuning shop. These Forgestar CF5V wheels come in sizes of 20×8.5 and 20×10.5 in the front and rear, respectively. Thanks to a finish Forgestar calls Bronze Burst, they fit the narrative of this high-performance machine perfectly.
