Since its gone, any chance of a new 335i long term test. We've got to see how bmw's turbos work! There hasn't been a turbo in a bmw in decades let alone 2! Sedan or coupe but hopefully convertible when it debuts.
I bet the editors like this idea. RIP (Recover in peace) long term 330i

I agree. I think Edmund should try getting a used car for long termer instead. Since BMW cover 50k maintenance, the cost of maintenance here is pretty inaccurate. (or the high sticker for BMW simply build in the maintenance cost). It would be interesting to see used Bimmers on Edmund's long term garage.

WAY DOWN at the bottom of this page you'll see a "help" link. Why not drop the editors a line about this?

Nope, the cost of maintenance is completely accurate. It costs nothing over the first 50,000 miles, as simple as that. So what if BMW picks up the tab, what matters is the hit to the consumer. I'm loving that I'm not paying for it in my 330.
On another topic, mine has the medium dark brown Terra leather interior which I had to order. Gorgeous colour and does not show junk like beige or grey, and is classier and rarer than the black.

The 405 can be a bitch... and no one in this city (Los Angeles) can drive compitently.
It shocks me you could get in an accident on the 405, considering how rare it is for traffic on it to be moving at a speed where an accident is possible.
