"This car is in great condition both mechanically and in terms of appearance. It was my wife's car and, unfortunately, she passed away not long ago. It is a twin-turbo mover but with surprisingly good gas mileage (26 MPH on recent trip). Perhaps equally important, it has 2+ years and 20,000+ miles remaining on an extended warrantee that can be conveyed to the new owner."

"Finally able to get a BMW when I handed the Nissan to my daughter when she turned 16. This car has been great to drive for the past 8 years and 140k+ miles. The 325xi AWD is the most sure-footed car, better in the snow than the Volvo XC90, better than FWD Nissan or Hyundai. It is responsive on the accelerator, brake, and especially the steering. Good on gas on the highways, getting over 30mph when averaging over the posted. Downside? The cupholders are not in a good place. And the back seat is not good for an adult traveling more than 2 hours. Next car is another BMW, but I plan to take delivery in Germany for that one."

Off the Showroom 2009 328i Sedan Still smells new.

"Only 21750 miles garage kept like the day it was bought. Great first car for a younger college student. Clean inside and out. You won't find a BMW or otherwise in this great condition. All service up to date. Records available."

"Best Car ever! expensive but you pay for what you get. Paid 38,500 and got the tire warrenty so 40,000 with 2.9%. I never used the tire warrenty never had a flat. Run Flats are expensive. replaced then after 45,000 mile with Falken Ziel. Came with Contenetal which are better tires with more grip. Premium package was quick a bit more and its a heavy RWD car. Hard to make the car drift UNLESS your in manuel mode. Turn off the Tration contol for some fun. seems like its always on. Interior is awesome. NIce europenan touch. My last car...JETTA was a lemmon this car beat it in everyway. Test drove a Prius, CR-Z, Camaro RS and SS and ford fusion. Have to say this car beat them all. Performance and pretty good with fuel. I fill 91 but I think it will take 87. so far 26mpg combined but I have a heavy foot. Sport mode is way too fun. Manuel mode to prove whose BOSS. Probably 32 mpg if I was driving like a grandma... Expensive but Worth it in safety and comfort"
