A reliable car for a young professional
by Greg from Bowie, MD
January 13, 2019
I was looking for a reliable car to start my professional career, something to get me back and forth to work without issue. This car is that car. It has great handling, the design looks good, and it has parking assist features. The only things that I dislike about the car are that there is no sunroof and that there is no navigation in my model.
Overall I had a pretty good experience. I went there and got the car I wanted and there was no hassle. The guy was super friendly and helpful.
10 years of driving pleasure

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.
Alan gave me a great deal on my 2018 BMW X3 M40i, every time I have a question about anything, he has the answer and responds quickly. Great guy overall... if planning on purchasing a BMW, see Alan at Long Beach.
Jon Lewis!! Man I’m so happy every time I bring my car in for service or just a wash.. He goes far and beyond to take care of me and my car. Great guy!! Always greets me with a big smile. Very helpful and does more than I request!
The F30 3 Series is King
by Davy_D916 from Sacramento, CA

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.
S.A. Jon Lewis is very knowledgeable. Super transparent. Very helpful. I would highly recommend requesting for Jon when you need your BMW serviced.
Brilliant Trade In
by Peter Muschamp from Finger Lakes NY

I recently traded my R32 for a 2016 BMW328ix Luxury Wagon. It's a super car with all the bells and whistles. From the design, comfort, handling and performance there's not too much to be disappointed about. It's my first BMW and so far I'm very impressed.
Alpha Cars in Mass were brilliant from step one to driving the vehicle off their beautiful property.
Sirius XM gave me a call telling me that I had a free subscription which was going to end. I had no idea that I had a free subscription available... Arthur spoke to me and cleared things up about all the features. He and I met as well to get a better understanding of the car that I got. I have had 7 BMWs and I am finally confident in saying that I know how to use my beautiful car.
Won't drive anything else

The 3 series sedan is the perfect size for me and it is good on gas. I don't think I would drive anything else in it's class. I plan on leasing another at the end of this year.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Wonderful car with both comfort and performance

Everybody at AutoNation Toyota Irvine were very helpful. I have bought many cars but this was the best experience I’ve ever had buying a new car. Everything went smoothly working with Abe Zraiqi through out the whole buying experience and deal. He also emailed me to make sure I was happy with my new car.
Beautiful and fun car

This was a very pleasant experience! Justin was knowledgeable and great to work with. Would recommend to anyone in the market for a new car!
BMW 328i X-drive
by BMW328ix from Charlotte, NC

I bought this car used. So far I love it, it’s very comfortable, handles well on wet roads, and the interior and controls are very intuitive. It also has a surprising amount of power and acceleration, even without putting it in sport mode.
So i went in already knowing what i wanted. Had my appointment already made and he was there waiting for me no issues. It was kind of strange to me how he didn’t know where the vehicles were so we had to go look for it. We walked for a bit then got into another vehicle to search for the vehicle. I think the lot and vehicle locations should be better situated. The buying process was easy and smooth. When the car was purchased i was waiting for a final cleaning and check of the car. This took forever. When i finally got the car. The inside of the windows were still dirty you can see the finger prints and the rear emblem had some chemical in it that oxidized the emblem. It took them a long time to seem like nothing had been done properly. I did appreciate the person helloing me to keep checking on me and letting me know the status instead of leaving me. The clean process and check process of the car needs to be better managed. It shouldn’t take that long for a half xxx job.
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..
Bought my car in Monrovia. The process took a little longer than expected, but after I proved I wasn’t purchasing without the best deal I finally got what I wanted. The service dept has been great and all of the workers are courteous and helpful.
BMW freakin ROCKS!!

Just love this car! Great ride! Love the leather heated seats and the moon roof. Oh and the heated steering wheel!! Navigation and run flat tires too!
Ross and Ramsey were absolutely FABULOUS to work with! Super kind, very informative and honest. I was a first-time buyer and they were able to give me a KILLER interest rate and a great payment plan for my financing. Both gentlemen walked me through of all the paperwork and what options I could choose from. I was very impressed by how this smaller family-owned dealership conducted business! As I was shopping for a used car, I went to two other dealerships (bigger franchises) first and did not have the same quality experience that I did at Royal Auto. Plus, my 2014 Toyota Corolla S Plus was at an awesome price and the condition is impeccable. THANK YOU Ross and Ramsey!
Absolutely love this machine

The car has been the best car I have owned so far! Drives well and handles the turn like it is nothing. Sporty feel is what makes the drive thrilling for a sedan.

Great car for winding roads. Mine is the xdrive model so a little light rain is no problem on the curves. A few inches of snow haven't been a major problem.
