2010 BMW 335i M Sport review

I have always been an E46 fan, having three cars in the family already: 320i, 325ci and a 330i. All great cars and loads of fun to drive. I always dreamed of owning an E46 M3, having test-driven numerous cars. I was scared away by the M-Tax on replacement parts, and so could not commit to buying one...

The purchase of my 2017-plated 330i was a big change from the cars I have previously owned (Think WRX/Golf GTI), and being an ageing millennial it was time to change into something a little bit more mature...

1995 BMW 318i review
