Pros: "I paid a fair price because I shopped around."

Cons: "Love driving in the BMW 328i. No complaints!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Hi,I rented a 328i BMW on a trip out of the country.I drove around for over a week in the car . I fell in love with driving the BMW 328i.I loved driving it so much I bought one when I came home.I studied up on the BMW for months before buying one.I don't want to give the impression of jumping into buying one because I studied up on the BMW 328i model and read too many reviews to count.I couldn't be any happier with the deal I made for my awesome car.I can tell you the most important thing was to buy extended coverage plan.Everyone I read about said they were happy with the car except the people who had no coverage and had to pay out of pocket.It may cost more but the car is worth every penny.People who wrote their reviews about their BMW 328i helped me to decide to buy my BMW 328i.The most things that were negative about the car from others in reviews were trunk room being kind of small and back seat is kind of small for three adults.Hope this information helps you to decide in your car purchase.Take care."

Pros: "engine, handling"

Cons: "cup holders, rear visibility when backing up"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"I bought this car because it was only one of two cars from any brand that had all wheel drive for winter driving in NH, enough room for wife, kid, 2 large dogs & luggage and a manual transmission. CR described he car as an excellent vehicle except for the cup holders and rear visibility. No one can say enough nice things about the inline 3 liter engine. The only reason for a more powerful engine is the inability to drive a manual transmission. Unfortunately 2011 is the last year the xDrive wagon could be ordered with a manual transmission."

Pros: "Fun to drive, fast, poor mans M3, head turner"

Cons: "No spare"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've had the pleasure of having this car for 2 years. This car drives great - it's very sporty. It has great pull in any gear. I have the coupe. It's tight to get into the back but once your back there, there is plenty of leg room. I with there was more room in the trunk for a spare...I guess all sports cars these days are going with run flats so they don't need spares."

"I love my 20009 BMW 328i. I have owned this car for 3 years and have not had any trouble with it. It drives awesome. Smooth ride and handles like a dream. Quick and responsiveness are a definite plus! Gas mileage has been great compared to heavy SUVs I have owned in the past. BMW is definitely the ultimate driving machine. This car will not disappoint!!"
