Sharp Looking And Handling — I like the look of the car, interior and exterior are top notch. The NA engine is super smooth. Transmission awesome in DS but a little jerky in D. Only regret is i didn't add sport seats, it will be on the must have list of my next 3.

Pros

Comfortable, quick, great ergonomics...it's the Honda Accord of our age/neighborhood

Cons

It's the Honda Accord of our age/neighborhood, the stop/start engine feature is poorly done.

It's The Honda Accord Of Our Age — It's a perfectly reasonable car. Goes fast when you want it too, uses less gas when you want that. Back seat is big enough so the kids don't complain. Just wish it were a bit less bland. I used to own a 1999 E39 and a 2002 before that so this is really on a downward slope of excitement...although it just does whatever pretty much...Its the BMW for folks who don't care much about cars I guess...

Pros

You get all the power, style, looks and handling

Cons

not a great family car, if there are more than two people traveling with this car, you won't have enough cargo capacity!

Is A 328i Coupe A Perfect Car For A Family? — Perfect car for a couple....not a great car for a family of 4 I really enjoyed this car, but honestly it is not a perfect car for a group of 3-4 people ..... If you're just a couple and and don't have any kids it will work out for you....

Flamboyant — It's a super-car, perfect for Miami Beach, showy, smart, sport, broad to be sporty with roof is a sedan, has the m3 package, those little details that make it great. Since I see you fall for it, it's sensational love from the young to the mature, for the pleasure of the whole family. I do not have it would lose the feeling.

Great Car For The Wife To Get Tickets In By Bhoffma1

I love the power delivery of the inline six cylinder. There is almost zero turbo lag and it feels like an NA car with a larger engine. I would prefer a manual transmission, but the eight speed autom... Read More

A Solid Car For Long Term Use. Beware Of Depreciation! By 2000BoxsterS

This Car Is "ok", But Not The Bmw I Would Want By luvalo

See each of the pros/cons. BMW makes a very good car, but I would not buy/lease the 3, nor the 4 Series, again. If you want a BMW sport, the 1 & 2 Series are best for that. If you want Luxury, t... Read More

The 328i Is A Fun, Fast And Reliable Vehicle By Peter

Truly there is not much to dislike. It drives very well. Has a solid feel from closing the door to taking a corner. Even the stereo sound great, especially with Sirius/XM. My kids love riding in it... Read More

Awesome Car By taylorsmith85

The car drives great. Feels like it should be on a track with lots of curves. The M package on it gives it a lot of attention. The only con for the car is the back seat is small if you put the fron... Read More

Not Worth The Money By 1978TA

The fuel economy is not bad for a car with adequate power. It just is not reliable for the money. I expected a lot better reliability but have had it into the dealer more than I would like. So glad I ... Read More
