Is BMW 335i Worth a Buy?

BMW 340i soon will be replaced by a newer version 340i.

The new version will have a different engine and also some minor tweaks will be given to chassis, steering, and suspension to give a more comfortable ride. But, at the same time buying the current model 335i will get lucrative because the automakers and dealers will slash prices of outgoing model.

They have to get rid of the older inventory to make way for new version and so will roll out lucrative offers. According to Senior Consumer Advice Editor Philip Reed, “A refreshed design of this iconic entry luxury car is coming later this year, pushing down prices on the soon-to-be-outdated model.

The major difference between the two models is the engine. The new engine makes 340i a tad faster, but the twin power N54 engine of 335i is still one of the best in the market. So the question that arises is- Whether one should wait for the newer BMW340i with perfectly smooth power delivery and exhaust note or go for ageing BMW335i. Despite being oldest in its class, it is still the best performer. It is definitely faster than every other car in its class and gives them tough competition in terms of handling. The significant cheap price and the lucrative offers from the dealers definitely make it a perfect buy.

3 Things You Must Do if You’re in a Car Accident

Car accidents happen in a split second. You are stunned, hurting and probably angry at the other driver. That’s why it is important to know in advance what to do if you are in an accident. Here are my three ‘must do’ recommendations:

1. Take photographs of the scene before you move your vehicle. These photos will be important to show the location of the vehicle and who is at fault. Even if you are hit from behind, you still need to do this. You would be surprised how many people who rear-end someone say that the other driver “stopped short” or “merged into my lane suddenly.” These photos will help establish that the other driver is at fault.

2. Get witness information. If another driver witnessed the accident, get their name, address and phone number. Most people are willing to stop, but don’t want to wait around until the police arrive. I have had many cases where there were witnesses to the accident, but nobody got their information. These independent witnesses are vital to helping you prove your case.

3. Call the police. Even if the other driver admits fault and tells you they will pay for your property damage, you must call the police. The police take down valuable information about the accident and who was at fault. When we don’t have a police report, stories can change and suddenly the other driver may claim you are at fault.

Sadly, car accidents happen all too often and most people will be in a car accident at some point in their lives. It is important to know what to do if it ever happens, so that you are prepared.
