The combination of handling, cornering force, stability at any speed, and braking on this car is like a pure sports car. But the car has space for cargo and passengers. The X-Drive has amazing traction in all New England weather, making it an extraordinary year-round daily driver. I always have fun driving this car. Six-speed manual is a joy. Steering has perfect feel and weight. Ride is firm but supple (on large bumps the sport suspension and run-flats combine to produce resounding thwacks). Even without performance tires, the cornering limits are so high that you will scare the snot out of your passenger way before you slide. The 328 has adequate accleration for spirited driving, and a very workable torque curve mated well to the gear ratios. Plenty fast for anything legal, but not a street racer. Most features are very well sorted out - seats are superb; no buffeting with sunroof open at any speed, windows up or down; automatic wiper system works well; upgrade stereo sounds great. Cruise control is easy, flexible and dead accurate. The Bluetooth phone connetction works fine, good mic and tie-in with speakers. The voice command system is something I never got used to, and the stern man's voice that yells at you when you make a mistake is comical. A few oddities - interior trunk release is almost at foot level on the driver side; built-in remote control for garage door does not work without the engine running - even if the key is in. Good fuel economy (25 mpg avg, up to 30 hwy), and flawless reliability after 43,000 miles. (I did have one corona marker lamp burn out - $0 under warranty.) I have never been so pleased with a purchase of anything as I am with this phenomenal vehicle.

I bought this car from a high-end dealer. The car was an exec's who only used it for 3800 miles, so I snapped it up. I can only say if you are going to pay $30K for a used car, you must look into this model. Everything they say about BMW's handling, acceleration, road-hugging ability, etc. is true. You simply have to experience it. I look forward to getting into this car every day-there is no price for that feeling. I have a coupe which further streamlines the exterior. Worth every penny. I will have this car a long time and the renewable maintenance program will reduce any breakdown fears.

Purchased used 07 for the wife and we have owned it for over a year now so time to write a review. Sports package looks great but the ride can be somewhat stiff over bumpy roads. The ride is slightly busier than the non-sport but not harsh by any means. My wife has not complained about it so it was a good choice. The chassis/frame of this model is far stiffer than the previous model (I've been driving one for the past 5 years) and you can really feel the improvements as you go over railroad tracks and bumpy roads. No creaks or rattles at all and the car's suspension just soaks it all up- simply amazing. Quality of workmanship and materials is far superior than the older models. The newer 3.0 mag block is also very good- plenty of power and very good on mileage. My wife is averaging 24 mpg per tank (my calculations, not trip computer) even though she gets mixed up in stop-and-go traffic to and from work. Steering is accurate and precise but very stiff when you first start out. After a year of ownership, it feels just right and just makes you wonder why other car mfr don't use this set-up. No issues with reliability. We haven't had to take the car in except for 2 oil changes and that was all. We are getting just over 15k miles between oil changes. Pros: good ride, stiff chassis, accurate steering, good mpg, excellent brakes Cons: busy ride on bumpy roads, orange peel paint, no dipstick(!, only computer read out)

This is my second 3 Series (2004 sedan, 2007 coupe). I bought both new. The cars have been flawless. Dealer/brand experience has been extraodinary. Not delighted that a new set of tires for my sports package cost $1,600, until I drive the car again and the handling more than makes up for it.

328i Coupe Styling, Performance, Reliability

I have owned 5 BMWs in the past, all 7 series and have loved the comfort, performance and reliability of each of them. I no longer needed the big 4 door and switched to the 328i coupe with Sport pkg, Premium pkg, Cold Weather pkg and Sport Suspension and exhaust. This car is the funnest car to drive of all the BMWs I have owned. The balance of the coupe makes the handling second to none. I have tried to break the rear loose going 60 mph on a 25 mph curve and barely got a squeal out of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Although the 335 has 60 more hp, the 328i in Sport mode can still pull 0-60 in about 5.7 seconds. I have the speed limiter removed and have had the car up to 157 mph out in the desert and it got there quick and smooth with no shudder or buffeting. I have never had any mechanical problems at all and get 35 mpg hwy and about 21-23 city if I'm easy on the foot. I have 55k mi. on it now and it's still tight as new. I would highly recommend getting some nice chrome exhaust tips to give your stock car just a nice added touch of styling. BMW is lacking in this minor detail. Have had many compliments and the comfort and performance is a 5/5 for me. Highly recommend any 3 series after 07. This model with the Sport and Prem. Pkg has to be one of the best used car buys out there. My next BMW will be the highly anticipated 4 series coupe.....An absolutely gorgeous car! You won't regret buying a 3 series coupe or sedan with under 50K miles. It's always voted number 1 or 2 in its category year after year for a reason.

I have had BMW's for 7 years. This 328 xi was disappointing. Fuel economy is lacking (18-20 mpg )and terrible 6 speed transmission. The transmission shifts rough, it actually feels like it bangs into gear. I had a 5 series with 150 k miles that still drove much better than this new car. Very disconcerting.

I bought a 2007 328 Coupe couple months ago, I love the performance and the looks. It handles beautifully at turns and when you need the power. The gas millage is pretty good as well, but it depends on how you drive. The only negative thing I can think about are the seats. they are not as comforable as I hoped them to be.

I've owned this car for about a month and what a great vehicle. I also have a 2006 330i and the 328i was an addition to our lineup for my wife. I've owned several BMW from a 325i to 530i to a 550i and even a X5 4.4i. All have been fantastic cars but the dealerships are less than commendable! One would expect a luxury line to have exceptional dealerships but I received more respect from a Ford dealer. Not putting Ford down in any way but when you pay BMW prices you expect a certain level of service? Anyhow, the cars are fantastic and with three kids soon to drive, I'm putting them all behind the wheel of a BMW. Safe, fun-to-drive, excellent resale value, great warrantee, and included maintenance...what else can be said.

This is great vechicle that allows you to floor it. It's quiet, however, a little rough on the pavement if you stay with the run flat tires. The interior is solid, simple, and sturdy. You will not find cheap rubbers or plasitics. I wish it had a little more max torque at the min RPM or the current max torque with a 1500-2350 RPM range. The HP to torque is fine for everyday driving. Most people don't realize weight plays a big role in performance and for a semi luxury car this is a light car. You can floor the gas pedal and still hear your radio. My advice for new buyers is to not buy off the dealer lot. Most test drivers are abusing the cars too early which may account for some problems people who experience early problems. If possible upgrade to the 335i if you want more torque. Believe me, it will blow your mind how quiet the cabin is when you push it to the limits whether it is a 335i or 328i. The LEXUS IS350 is a little quieter, but lacks the acceleration. I've tested the G35 a couple of times and it is LOUD, LOUD, LOUD and the interior is of lower quality, but ok. There was some interior rattle that was not acceptable for its price range as well. The ACURA TL had nice standard features, but lack the control, turning and finesse. Plus, it is known Japanese specs are overly qouted and i experienced this with my test drive. A little sluggish and you have to rev too high to pass cars. BMW designers tend to understate there specs. Believe me, the BMW rides much faster than what is spec'd. The steering feels like your going 40MPH when you are actually travelling 130 mph. No kidding. Again for any car buying Test Drive, Test Drive and Test Drive. I test drove car after car and the BMW handeling and performance was no match. Also, get your car built...DO NOT BUY OFF THE LOT.
