I purchased my F30 private party in June of 2018 and it’s been outstanding! The ride is smooth and comfortable. All of the interior trim is high quality. I have 73,000 miles on it and it’s been awesome so far! It developed an oil leak from the oil pan not too long ago which was slightly disappointing, but cars are mechanical machines and that’s bound to happen. There can be a lot worse and more serious problems to have on a car. I smile every time I get in, and start it up. I LOVE this car. I’m going to be a BMW customer for life now!
My wife drove this car for 10 years to work, shopping and bringing the kids to school. It drives and handles very well, and does very well on snowy hills, both up and down. The car is reliable, fast and sporty. I enjoyed the chances I had to drive it.
Bill Van damm was great he was fast and prompt to respond to my questions. Great expierence would definatley use again. They were very nice and gave me a great deal.
Excellent car to have

My 328i was the best car I ever had.. I loved all my traveling experiences. It was so smooth. If I could own another one I would trade in my MAZDA 3 for another one BMW. LOVE BMW AND THE WORKERS THAT WORK AT PERMAIN BASIN BMW OF MIDLAND TEXAS..
After owning the last generation E90 class 3 series for six years, I thought I was ready to move on to another brand and I didn't think I wanted another 3 Series. After driving the Audi A4 and the current generation 3 Series, I decided I stick with BMW. One year later and I'm certain I made the right choice. The F30 328i resolves many of the concerns I had with the E90. It's much quicker, it get's great fuel economy, I enjoy all the new technology and the heads-up display.
I get an average of 24 MPG and I have a lead foot. I'm normally not a huge fan of electronic steering but I'm okay with it on this BMW. In fact, it's much more enjoyable because it actually feels like I have power steering (the E90 was questionable at best).
I have the M Sport package and would recommend that you purchase your 3 Series with this package at a minimum because of the suspension and styling improvements. Especially used, the price difference between an M Sport and non-M Sport is minimal but you get so much for your money.
I also highly recommend removing the run flats ASAP and installing normal tires. This made the car drive so much more smoothly and provided improvements in cornering, braking and accelerating. Keep a can of "Fix-A-Flat" or get AAA/Other Roadside Assistance. You will not regret removing the run flats.
After adding 30,000 miles to an already used BMW, I believe the F30 class may be more reliable than the E90 class 3 series. The car is past 50,000 miles now and I couldn't be happier with the reliability and all aspects of the car.
Had some minor issues that get expensive but the smooth quiet ride is worth it. Lots of creature comforts and the winter package is great.
