    Check This Out 2012 BMW 335i Sport Track Review by BMW Blog

    From BMWBlog .com - To find out more interesting BMW news and stories, visit their site here.



    To say that a car is good, it must perform well on the track. That is what BMW Blog tried to find out in this exciting track review of the 2012 BMW 335i Sport. With the 3 Series being one of the best loved families in the BMW fleet, can this car live up to the expectations? Here is an excerpt of the results in terms of engine sound and the overall verdict:

    Engine Sound

    While the suspension and wheel combination might be well and good in the new 335i hey, a BMW has to handle well out of the box, right? the exhaust note of the 335i Sport Lines twin, chrome exhaust pipes is raw and raucous with the traditionally raspy big six-cylinder note pouring out of the rear. Unfortunately, the best place to enjoy the exhaust note is outside of the F30. It seems that a bit of the new 5 Series DNA has crept into the F30s interior sound deadening leaving the exhaust a bit quieter than Id prefer and more so than the previous E90-based 335i.

    I also noticed at higher speeds, the exhaust note, while always present in the background,was muzzled by wind noise over the mirrors and windscreen quickly drowning out the glorious exhaust note. In fact, around 80 mph its surprising how much the wind noise intrudes into the cabin ambiance and washes out the high-pitched exhaust and sweet, burbly overrun.
    ...


    Conclusion

    Dare I say it, but the F30 335i Sport feels predictable in the sense that it is a great car it had to be. This car has been building on a winning formula for decades and with the sales figures BMW attributes to the 3 Series the F30 is too big for BMW to fail. Thankfully, the crafty Bavarians pulled it off the F30 successfully evolves the E90 chassis and technologies into the sixth generation of 3 Series but still manages to retain the requisite fun factor everyones come to expect from the 3 Series. I went into the test for this car wanting to look at the new 3 Series with disdain as it marked the start of an era in which the perhaps the 3 Series had finally grown too wide, too long and too technically advanced to be fun mercifully I was proven wrong.

    And if you have any issues with how this car can perform Ill gladly refer you to a Mr. Joey Hand on what a 335i Sport can pull out of its bag of tricks.
