For 2012, the new 3 Series is available in three trim levels: Sport Line, Luxury Line and Modern Line. Outside of mechanical differences depending on your engine choice, each offers subtle changes in interior and exterior appointments. I spent 95 percent of my “regular” 3 Series time driving the superb 335i. It’s my kind of car — powerful, well-appointed and incredibly fun to drive. Ride quality is sporty yet compliant, and the only noises you’ll hear are the noises you want to hear in a BMW — the sweet sounds of a BMW engine under power. Speaking of power, motive force for the 335i comes from a legendary line of straight six engines, and this 3.0-liter unit features dual scroll turbocharging and outputs 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 miles per hour sprints come up in a rapid 5.4 seconds. No matter your choice of gearboxes, a six-speed manual or state-of-the-art eight-speed, the gear changing experience is crisp.
