My car

"I ordered my car, the I6 Twin Scroll DIESEL is a beast once its moded, but there is a MAJOR flaw and it is that BMWoA did not see, and that is the infamous UREA tank, DPF and sensor will go out constantly luckily the warranty helps out. Also, the EGR(exhaust gas recirculator) is very detrimental for the engine and will cause CBU(carbon build up) something BMWoA i aware off and will not pay for , yes, you have to pay for the cleaning. Otherwise, the car is EXCELLENT, the other alternative is to forgo the DPF/EGR and code it out"

Pros: "great to drive on the highway, lot of fun."

Cons: "not smooth too many faults for price"

"grossly over rated car, also overpriced, there's a lag in the AWD pickup, the shock absorbers are not very responsive to road conditions, its jarring to go even over a small sudden bump. The gas tank needed a major repair while under warranty for faulty recording of gas levels. Great car to drive on a highway but not so much fun on a commute. Poor gas mileage in city drive. Not good in the snow."

"I had already owned a 2004 325xi and a 2005 325ci, both of which were great cars. The 2007 328xi that I had was a total nightmare from its extremely hard riding run flat tires to the sputtering V-6 engine. Just a terrible experience that has probably turned me off to ever owning another 3 series. Overall experience on this particular car was POOR."

"The car is truly awesome in a lot of ways. The torque makes everyday driving situations a joy. It has the power to push you back in your seat at very low rpm. It is fast and handles superbly. Rock solid and planted at triple digit speeds. Gets 37mpg at 70 and 29.5mpg at 90 on the interstate. However, if I had it to do over again I would not get the sport suspension unless you are going to be driving somewhere with very smooth roads, are under 40, or are a glutton for punishment. I have driven a 328 with normal suspension from the same year and it was much more pleasant on city streets but was not as razor sharp and flat in the curves.(Nor was it nearly as fast) What you get with this car is a sub 6 second zero-60, well handling, good looking, practical vehicle with outstanding highway fuel economy. Perfect for someone who travels a lot."

"Perfect blend of style and performance, this car has it all! It handles like a sports car yet is as comfortable as a the luxury car it is. Mechanically car is literally as good as new, amazing ride with lower than average mileage. There are some minor dings and tire wear. The sports package, premium package, and heated seats add to the pleasure of this very well appointed coupe, this ultimate driving machine is the best I've ever owned!"
