Bmw!!!!! — What an amazing car! Not only is it beautiful on the inside and out, it handles like no other. The interior is beautifully assembled and is very luxurious but simple in function. The engine although only has 215 bhp is still plenty powerful and has some of the silkiest acceleration. The 6 spd. manual transmission is a perfect combo for this engine.

Nice Fast Car. — Pretty smooth even at speeds at around 90-100 mph. Had no problems switching lanes and was pretty lucky not to get caught by any cops.

Pros

It's everything you'd expect from the smallest luxury BMW.

Cons

The engineers could have added some additional comfort to the seats, and it wouldn't been great if the car held it's line around corners a little better.

Another Great 3-series From Bmw — The latest BMW 3-series continues BMW's tradition of setting a standard for "entry" level luxury sport sedans. The exterior design is just what someone would expect from a class leading organization. The interior meets anyone's needs. Their are 2 areas that are a bit of letdown. First, the seats and ride are not as comfortable as expected for the price. Second, the car doesn't hold to the road as well as previous versions, or as well as an Audi A4. As I've driven both a 330xi and a 330i, neither of them inspire the level of confidence while driving that the Audi does.

engine; straight forward and easy to use controls, good stock sound system, leather, good seat travel for me (i'm 6'6"), that fact that its German made.

Cons

smallish rear cargo area.

. — I love everything about this car, but the smallish trunk (not small for its class) makes it hard to road trip with.

The Best Sports Sedan — The BMW 3-Series has always been a benchmark for Compact Luxury Sports sedans. The newly redesigned 3-Series sedan (aka E90) is no exception. It's pure driving excitement that one must drive to fully understand. This is truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine." :)
