everybody welcome to God review today we were taking a look at BMWs 2013 335i with xDrive this particular car has 300 horsepower at a 300 pound feet of torque thanks to a twin turbo inline 6-cylinder engine in addition to all-wheel drive this car has what is called BMWs M Sport Package which provides it with a more aggressive stance both in front facia the side skirts and rear so BMW continues to have one of the best infotainment systems it's called connected drive it's fast it looks good and it works like it should if you look closely at the headlights you'll notice they kiss the kidney grille which is an important distinction in addition to that this car with the M Sport package includes a more aggressive front fascia with wider openings and that can be seen quite evidently when compared to a three to eight or any car that doesn't have the M Sport package and although 18-inch wheels aren't necessarily remarkable for next to three grand you can get yourself a pair of yellow brick calipers which are actually an indicator that you have BMWs high-performance brake system which includes perforated brake discs I've long been a proponent of BMWs and tears however in this car they've chosen to adorn it with a plastic metal that only looks cheap and contrast what is otherwise high-end materials seriously seriously yellow brake calipers are flying but this is just pushing it a little bit too far now I stand at six feet too and I can sit in the back of this car and the driver's seat has been adjusted to my height with relative comfort I wouldn't suggest doing it for a six hour car ride but by all accounts it is a family car and it's a family car that's relatively sporty now there is a keen focus on miles per gallon and BMW has an auto start/stop function this increases fuel economy by up to 30% in cities and perhaps 20% when driving around highway and city despite this car having a variety of amenities which include a heads-up display lights the watch themselves and a more aggressive body package that lacks the rear view camera it does however have a set of sensors which tell you when to stop so the question kind of looms is the BMW 3-series is still the drivers sedan with respects to handling power everything and this car holds a lot of those qualities and bodies a lot of qualities that one might look for when they want sort of a dual personality let's call it machine right so it can actually handle most persons not gonna let me go okay so it encompasses handling comfort and it's a reasonable daily driver it's not too uncomfortable I've been hitting potholes speed bumps a tremendous hit right now isn't insufferable it doesn't send reverberation through your spine and leaving you with discomfort you could drive this car for eight hours can be fine or if you wanted to you could probably take it to a track and still get around in a reasonable time so there it is that's BMWs 2013 335i with xDrive it's by all accounts a solid car it's fun it's sporty but unfortunately to me it's just not a car that I want to be seen in and nor would I want to spend the money on the M package so at the end of the day I'd prefer a coupe and for that I'm waiting for the 4 Series which will emerge in showrooms in September and I think appeal to a generation more like me I'm Cristin to Causton for GAD review thank you for watching have an excellent day you
