2011 BMW 335is – First Drive Review

Here’s something new: For once North America will be getting a special performance edition of a popular European model that the Europeans won’t receive. This performance edition shall be known as the 335is and it comes courtesy of our friends at BMW North America.

The is (“i” for injection, as in fuel, and “s” for sport, as in fun) follows a tradition of s-badged sport-enhanced models, including the 320is, 325es, 325is, 535is, and most recently, the X5 4.6is and 4.8is.

This 335is features a massaged version of the N54 turbocharged inline six and an array of M Sport accoutrements to put it on a tier above the current 335i.

Other engine upgrades are placed to compensate for the increased performance, like an additional radiator behind the left side bumper intake, an oil cooler behind the other intake, and stiffer engine mounts.

The 335is comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, or, for the first time on a non-M car, the seven-speed DCT automated manual as an option.
