About BMW 335i
As a model in the renowned and reliable BMW 3 Series lineup, BMW 335i was built by a famous German manufacturing company, Bayerische Motren Werke AG, more known under its abbreviation BMW, between 2007 and 2015 as an entry-level luxury car.

During this generation, BMW 335i was powered by a 3.0 L turbocharged inline 6-cylinder N54 engine rated at 302 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, which was replaced by 3.0 L I6 N55 with same power output. More recent 335i was introduced in late 2011 to replace the E90 3 Series and was available in 4-door sedan (F30/F35) and 5-door touring (F31). Back then, BMW 335i still got power from the 3.0 L turbocharged I6 but it could produce 300 lb-ft of torque.
