Pros: Great exterior and interior styling, delightful features, safety, looks, Name appeal, ride, fit and finish, engine. Cons: Run-flat tires, base audio system, slightly cramped knee room for driver and rear passenger leg room, Unclear/inconsistent specifications on need for premium or regular fuel (not really a con). BMW IMO should offer the runflats as an option or completely get rid of it. It has no real benefit (how often do you get a flat tire anyway). Infact it is an added cost to the consumer. It cannot be repaired and if you have a flat, that tire or all tires need to be replaced entirely. I think runflats make the car noisy and handle (a bit) poorly. Also note that BMW does NOT offer the runflats on their expensive hyper sports model - the M3. That shows you what BMW themselves think of runflats. It only saves BMW cost to not include a spare wheel, jack and other components. It does not really help the owner other than not having to replace the tire immediately on the side of the road.

328i Cabriolet is a Great Car

My wife and I were looking for a car that would replace our Mercedes-Benz SLK 350. We loved the hard top convertible but needed a little more room. The BMW 328i convertible does that. Here are my observations: Plus: Powerful but not stunning acceleration. Excellent handling, even better than the SLK. Comfortable but firm seats. Excellent stereo and Nav system. Decent highway mpg... about 31. More fun than should be legal with the top down. Much better body integrity than the SLK. The BMW barely gives away the fact that it's a convertible. Free maintenance for the first four years. (We have one year left as we bought a 2010 just one month ago.) Minus: Expensive to fix IF you use the dealer. Don't. I have been using the same independent here in Boise for 20 years and I swear he does a better job for half the cost of the dealer. By the way, he says a 328i is one of the best cars ever made. Seriously. Nav screen. BMW really dropped the ball on this. The screen has an anti-glare coating that comes off or scratches if you try to clean it. If you buy this car it takes courage to remove the anti-glare coating and replace it with a film available at several outlets. It works and it can be cleaned. Stiff ride with run flat tires. I will probably replace them with conventional tires and a mobility kit (fix-a-flat and a portable electric air pump). After a month of driving this car I love it and can't imagine selling it unless it simply falls apart. It's that good. But I would never buy it new. Let someone else take the $20,000 depreciation loss.

Car rides great, accelerates smoothly and powerfully. I use the manual type shifter since I am used to a manual transmission and it works just like a manual except there is no clutch. Seats are comfortable and provide great stability. Only complaints would be the lack of certain things I would expect in a car of this price that are not standard...No bluetooth, no power seats, terrible interior storage which could be an issue, and most importantly the base stereo is just OK at best. Having said all that, I love this car and always look forward to driving it!

Rick is the most awesome guy he was determined to help me get in the car i wanted, i don't have perfect credit, i was so happy with his service. He was friendly, he's a man of his word he called me the next day and said i was approved, i was practically jumping up for joy when he told me. I have a beautiful red BMW i'm in love with my car. And all thanks to Rick and hes team for giving me a chance. Great service, everyone at Bmw El Cajon you are the best.

Solid Machine

This is my second BMW. The first was a 325i and couldn't believe the difference between it and the Ford I traded in to purchase the BMW. I didn't realize how "tinny" the doors were but when I first opened the BMW the doors were solid, I felt like I was driving a tank, a very comfortable luxury tank, you feel like your sitting in a solid car from the weight of the doors, to the leather seats that feel like a very thick quality leather, to the mirrors that assist when backing up and parking the car. I didn't know what "the ultimate driving machine" meant until I actually bought one and experienced it. Seven years later I now own an Alpine White 2010 BMW 328i xdrive, had to move up a notch. The only con about this car is the gas mileage, I might get 18 around town and 25 on highway. A big difference from the 325i which was a lot more economical. Other than that, it has a smooth ride and I feel like a million bucks driving it. It's sleek sophisticated design is certainly a head turner and I made sure I didn't buy it new, but 2 years old this time so I don't feel the pinch of paying for a new one all over again. I would highly recommend this car. They are simply a quality built car unlike any other type of car I have driven.

A Fine, Fun Car!

by from on January 28, 2014

Great to drive! I Like it. Try one yourself. Very predictable handling, and excellent in all road trials.

just bought a slightly used 2010 BMW 328i w/ Xdrive, manual transmission. Very happy with the car. Really enjoying the handling and sportyness of the car. It has plenty of engine. Had a 2001 Porsche 911, and this is in that same family of terrific handling and happy engine. It is stunning the difference compared to a Honda Accord or a Nissan Maxima. Disappointments: All my driving is back roads, and getting 16 miles a gallon (Ouch). The interior controls are impenetrable. Honda, Nissan, VW and Porsche all make cars that are easy to operate. Not BMW.

328xi, awd heaven....

You pay for what you get, and every cent spent was worth it. Car handles great, and provides the drive with almost to secure a feel from it's bewildering traction. Gas mileage is 19 city, which hurts a bit, but 26 highway, which no complaint can be made. Went with the 328 instead of the 335 because after test driving them both, the 335 almost was overkill, though if a diesel AWD 335 was available I would have swapped it up in a second. Car feels like a BMW, well built, solid, and has the gadgets you can personalize to your liking. If you've never owned one, you'll never understand why they call them the ultimate driving machine. Not only a solidly built car, but safe, comfortable, and most of all, makes the driver want to drive. Power is adequate, and as with most German built cars, torque is the key. Could use another 20-30 horses, but the balance between reliability, economics, and peformance seems to be perfect.

We replaced our 2000 323i with the new 328i. After three months of ownership we have no regrets. Both cars have been great to drive, and fuel-efficient as well. We had to look to find one without all-wheel drive--with winter tires on our previous 323, we have never needed all-wheel drive, which adds weight, expense, and complexity.
