2011 BMW 335is Coupe

#BMW, #335is

How does BMW make a turbocharged engine sound this sexy? I had time only to pilot the 335is to the airport, which is a rather dull ride save for the tunnel you have to pass through before getting to Departures. I rolled down the windows, tugged at the left-hand paddle twice, and luxuriated in the sweet music. To be sure, the M3's screaming V-8 would have made even more intoxicating a noise. But $8000 more? My short sampling leaves me agreeing with my coworkers that this is the "just right" 3-series.
