Miss 3.5 is having (and has for a while now) some serious temper tantrums. She is incredibly intelligent with the vocab to match, and is easily able to interpret and convey how she feels, but if she reacts impulsively then she won't back down. Door slamming has started (wasn't expecting that till12!) and she constantly challenges me and screams and kicks and swipes if she doesn't get her own way. Anyone else have a 3.5yo this passionate about their choices and getting what they want?

Yes. I could have written this word for word!
No advice really just, take a deep breath and walk away if needed! I've found ignoring and/or quietly stating that you will discuss the issue further once she's calmed down, sometimes helps. We have been doing 1-2-3 magic since DD was about 2, it still works but I really have to pick my battles now otherwise she'd be in quiet-time all day. :-/

Yep! Back chat, being snide and rude, verbally attacking her brother and bossi g him around, being physically rough. Tell her to go to her room she just shouts it back to me.
My defiant and head strong!
I do my best to ignore her repeats and carry on until she tries to mother DS and be rough and nasty with him.

Sounds like my 3 year old (boy though). Not much advice, just sympathy. It's hard hard work not behaving like a 3 year old in response! I just do my best, we talk about it and forgiveeach other in the evening.

This was my son to a T.
We changed his diet.
We took him off certain foods and the change was miraculous.
You might want to investigate the dietary aspect. Food has a massive impact on our behaviour.
