#1 of 18 BMW 335i Sedan or Coupe? What would you pick?
Nov 03, 2007 (1:39 am)
I am going to buy a 335i soon, but I am still not sure on what to get...a sedan or coupe? Which one would you guys get? And what are you guys' opinions on the look of both cars? Give me some advices please...

LOL. That's what I used to think too.
I would add: Wife = Sedan
I always liked the look of most coupes better than their sedan counterparts. When I was buying my BMW the wife strongly suggested I get the sedan "in case someone wants to go with us".
Since I didn't want to hear about it for three years I agreed.

I'm in your club! But she is right...so much easier to get in and out, although I've never been in the back seats.
Here's a funny story. I took 3 colleagues to lunch. One was my CFO who is very portly. He said the 3'r was a P.O.S. because there was no room for him in the back!
He would have had trouble in the 7'er!

I have the sedan. I think the sedan's looks are better than the coupes. different strokes for different folks. incidentally, no kids, empty nester, downsized from a yukon suv. went back and forth between the mercedes clk350. their coupe's lines are better due to the lack of a pillar on the window. imo.
#8 of 18 coupe vs sedan

I believe the coupe's rear seats can entirely fold down.
That's a real practical advantage if you ask me. Also,
the aerokit on the sedan looks inperceptable compared to
the standard. The coupe's aero kit looks nice (at least the front bumper does).
The couple cost roughly $2.3k more than the sedan. That's 4.7% more than the sedan optioned out some.

You can get fold down seats for either the Sedan or the Coupe.

The sedan doesn't have fold down seats I believe. They have this skinny
plastic fold down pouch or something like that big enough to allow skiis or
something to go through it. You can see it on bmwusa.com's build your own car thingy.
The coupe allows the entire rear seats to fold down I believe.
This is according to my understanding after visiting a BMW dealer recently.
I saw the sedan's pouch fold down, but I didn't see the coupe's seats fold down.
I'm going by what the sale's rep told me. Please do inform if I'm wrong.
