A Timeless Classic with a few jenky quirks inside

Purchased my 07 BMW 328xi (E90) quite used, with 189,000 miles on it, and nearly no issues at all but for a badly-needed head unit upgrade and probably a systems software update (since it has no USB drives built into it, I'm unable to download and install the system software updates myself. Not a huge fan of the clonky iDrive or whatever it's called; seems a bit overkill. The factory DVD drive exclusively for Nav installation updates (that are now so beyond obsolete, they aren't even available,) is one of the more ridiculous decisions BMW made with this car. No full-size spare on extra rim in the trunk, which I thought was a German automotive norm, having owned four Audi A4s prior to this BMW. I was more than a little disappointed to find not only no full-size spare, but not even the space for one if you wanted one, and not even a spare tire of any sort, not even a lousy donut. And I get it, BMW has great faith in their "run-flat" tires. But every Audi I've owned has had not only factory run-flat tires, but ALSO the full-size spare rim and tire in a special compartment under the trunk. I'm stumped as to this continued oversight in BMW's decisions. The trunk location of the battery was a surprise, though now, having located three individual positive charging prods (two on the battery in the trunk, one on the upper left near the washer fluid reservoir,) I am decidedly a fan of having flexibility in car positioning for jumping other cars. I can't be positive, but I assume the floor mats that came with mine are factory, based on what I've seen online and the weird and raggedy shape of these horrendous things. Total fail, if so. I've had better stock floor mats in junky minivans than these frumpy little, not-quite-sized-right and with a weird flap of carpeting that sticks nearly onto the accelerator pedal itself, although it's unable to be tucked at all into the space underneath the pedals. Yuck. I expected better than these. Factory speakers throughout entire car still nearly mint, sound fantastic, and the audio controls allow for some pretty unique audio options (like the option to have the music automatically increase in volume as the car increases in speed lol. That's a funky little quirky. Um, can we real talk, BMW, about this whole outdated 90's-style popout cupholder situation? 🤔 I won't pretend to understand what the heck went on during that embarrassing decision, but man, that's not a good look or functional, you guys. Yeesh. Otherwise, so far so good. Smooth, comfy, classic style, beautiful paint color, impressive little car.

Oil leaks after 100,000 miles.

When our 2007 328 hit 100,000 miles, we had already replaced the a/c compressor. Have been having a/c problems ever since. We also had problems with the rear passenger electric window motors. Replaced two on one door. After a 100,000 miles we had the oil pan gasket leaking and the oil level sensor go out. Can't replenish oil if you can't see the level! Then we noticed the valve cover gasket leaking. If you look on YouTube, you'll see that these are all known issues with BMW's. Cost of an oil pan gasket replacement? More than $2,000! BMW definitely has enineering issues with their engines leaking oil. Poor gasket materials I suppose.

Very great car.

This is the one of the best cars that I I've ever owned. And at the time it is running perfectly and without any problems. And if I had to do it again I would make the same choice. Amen

Best driving experience I've ever had

It was more than a car to me. It was a friend. I have to let it go since it's expensive to have a car in NYC.

Smooth drive around Las Vegas

I do consultations for different casinos and take this puppy in and out of garages, many red lights and quiet smooth air conditioned highway drives without a problem.

Most reliable & luxurious car I’ve owned.

The car was great for commuting, only experienced minor issues under my ownership. Has great safety features like traction control when driving during a rainstorm preventing the car from hydroplaning!

BMW 328i is a great sports sedan

I would buy this car again, the 6 cyl is one of the best power trains that BMW has made and the clutch is butter smooth. Look for a well-maintained example if you are buying used, get a PPI. Window motors and regulators can be problematic. As a fellow gearhead opined, the older ones can become "needy".
