I purchased a used vehicle via the internet. I flew out to California to finalize the paperwork. The team did a great job on resolving an issue that occurred during the finalization of the sale. I highly recommend this team.

The car was priced great and an awesome value for the type of vehicle. Very happy with the performance and drive. A lot of fun to drive and very comfortable.
Daniel was great! Brought my car in for a battery issue and a recall issue. I was greeted promptly, and service was done in a timely manner.
The F30 3 Series is King

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.
Space Grey with M-Sport aerodynamic kit and v-spoke rims on the outside caught my attention in the dealership right away. Gorgeous Coral Red Dakota leather, aluminum hexagon trim and 18 inch low profile run flat summer tires added to the package. As far as performance, tires and suspension grip so well with the M-Sport options that I never felt as confident taking corners as I have before. Really communicative road feel and cornering that allows you to accelerate through the turn is exhilarating. As far as comfort, New Jersey roads make it a little rough on your nerves as I have learned with 3 tires replaced due to sidewall blowout. As a daily commuter, the power of the Q1 release of this 2012 328i (Q1 was still a 2011) V6 SULEV engine combined with beautiful styling, that only BMW has to offer, makes you forget that potholes are not your friend. With the top down and the Harmon Kardon surround sound system turned up to ear splitting but pure sound levels, the workday just melts away. Great first BMW and I doubt this will be my last unless I retire in NJ.
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.
I had the recall of the Seat belt taken care of on05/16/17. Trevor checked, the paper work, and made sure that this time every thing was in order. Friendly and efficient.
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..
