At the 2010 New York auto show, BMW brought back the "is" edition of the 3-series with the 335is. A tuned version of the standard 335i, the 335is has more power and unique cosmetic features.

BMW attached the letter S to its 3-series cars since 1977, later adding a 5-series model. Designating sport, these models featured additions such as sport suspensions and seats. For the 2011 model year, the S returns to the 335i, designating a more powerful version of the 3-series.

In coupe form, the 335is is a very good-looking car, showing a smooth silhouette. The 335is gets a black grille and black door sills, contrasting well with the red model on display in New York.

These M package wheels also come with the 335is. BMW didn't upgrade the brakes, however, reasoning that the standard 3-series brakes are already very powerful.

The 335is comes standard with a sport suspension, giving it a stiffer ride for better cornering. Accents include the black dual-exhaust tips.

Although it uses the same twin turbo 3-liter straight six-cylinder engine as in the 2011 335i, the 335is gets tuned up for an extra 20 horsepower output.
