Amazing car for the value.

This is the exact car I was looking for. It is comfortable when in normal and eco driving modes and sporty when you want it. The interior feels very luxurious and spacious for a small car. The car is the perfect size. It is small and nimble and feels like you can point it exactly where you want to go in sport mode. Considering it was almost $45k new only 3 years ago I find it to be an incredible value.


Just a Great Car

I was looking for a car to replace my jetta b/c it sucked, so I wanted something reliable, looks good, affordable, drives well (200+ hp), has good resale value, good fuel economy and this car is all of those. I've owned a brand new 2017 bare bone manual version and a used 2014 fully loaded automatic version. By far the manual was a much more satisfying driving experience. It felt so much more connected, while the automatic is appreciated for all its toys, during rush hour, city and when i'm tired. I love the manual partly in fact that dark gray metallic with black leather was the perfect color for this car. The automatic was silver metallic with white leather which I didn't like the look of but was MUCH cooler in the summer.


Fun Drive

Excellent sporty experience. Less off the line but excellent pick up at cruising speeds. Comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.


This car is the greatest car I buy yet Love it.

This car meets all my need And the performance is great. Will buy more cars here. Hasn't broken down yet its great


Fun car to drive, very responsive.

Car drives like a sports car, hugs the road on turns & gives you plenty of get up & go when you need it.


Love it

I went from a 2002 Hyundai Sonata to this so . . . yea. That pretty much sums up my review. I'm not used to these cars, but I'm loving this BMW. Only thing that would make it better is a more fun sounding exhaust :D. I eventually want to upgrade to an M2.


Most unreliable car I've ever owned

In a two and half year span had 9 flats . You drive on a small rock flat. Driving down highway you will have a flat . Even if you did purchase tire warranty you want a r liable car for the money. I spent over 40 hours dealing with tire issues. When took in they looked at you like you were crazy and stated don't know


sweet car...for a car

We feel this model is faster and smoother than the 330ci we previously owned. I'm not thrilled with the option of the vehicle stopping when you stop & starting when you release the brake,but my wife loves it. Great styling and the front & rear cameras are nice features,but I wouldn't just depend on them. We've only had the vehicle for two weeks but it's pretty awesome,especially in the metallic dark grey color.
