"I have the 2015 328I X-drive in silver and it is fantastic in all aspects.
I have an affinity for well engineered machines, which is why I have gravitated towards BMW. They blend aesthetics with practicality, luxury, power and efficiency, and the end result is a car that capture the essence of who I am.
The exterior of the vehicle is beautiful, clean, and classy. It is a pleasure to look at.
The interior is well designed with elements that incorporate luxury with technology to envelope you in smart, classy, ergonomic, sporty and state of the art features.
I was hesitant to go with a 4 cylinder engine...until I drove it. Again, even in this aspect BMW absolutely exceeds expectations.
Most people expect a 4 cylinder engine to be sluggish and to under perform. BMW, however, changes that. They have optimized the performance of their 4 cylinder engine and added a "twin power" turbo.
Everyone looks at horsepower, which appears a little low on these 328's, but what really throws you back into the seat isn't the horse power, it's the torque.
This twin power turbo creates 255 lb-ft of ab strengthening torque. When you select sport mode, and step on the gas, it feels like you are getting launched off of an air craft carrier, pushing you from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.
To give you some perspective, a dodge viper is a dedicated, 2 seat sports car with an 8 liter, V-10 645 horse power engine. A 2015 Dodge Viper GTC does zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds.
The 328 is no dodge viper, but it really gets up and moves.
But, if you select Eco Pro, your 328 suddenly becomes so gas friendly oil companies start laying off workers.
Most of the time you will probably be in comfort mode, which is a very satisfying combination of performance and fuel efficiency.
If you have an affinity for design excellence, class, performance, efficiency, and luxury like I do, this is absolutely the car for you."
