Beautiful Car - Rare Colour — excellent car, well worth purchasing. my interior is not the standard so i cant really commont on that. need big wheels for the handling, but i see this as no prob because i think they look better when big. this car has been very reliable, never had a problem (yet - touch wood)!! and when you consider it has done almost 150000 that aint bad goin!! bit of a heavy drinker though, i feel like im constantly filling her up!! but then again, it doesnt help when you rag it about does it??! you can most certainly have good fun in it!! :)

Pros: style still looks fantastic after a few years! looks aggressive! excellent at sliding round corners!! the body kits and extras you can put on are almost endless, and then it looks even meaner! gggrrrr!! ha!

Cons: drinks alittle too much, slides all over when you have small 'biscuit' wheels on! quite common.... (thats why its good to customise it yourself - so its an individual!)

Great Value — I bought this vehicle for my son and he loves it. It is a bit underpowered but with the sport suspension it is a fine, tight example of a 10 year old BMW. Do not buy this car unless it has the sport package!

Pros: Great dollar value, very reliable

Cons: Underpowered

Mom's Pampered Pet Beemer — This is not your typical little old ladies 4dr sedanIt but it does ride smoothly & quietly ,carry 5 people comfortably with lots of luggage, get a solid 21mpg around town, 30mpg on the Interstate & keep them all warm or cool as required. When you're tired of being a solid citizen just treat the 328 like the Hi-Performance Sport Sedan it is & it will not disappoint you.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The Price was Right,the miles were Right,and it was a 1 owner "Little Old Ladies"car.I inherited it from  Mom when she passed at age 83 a few years back.I know this car has been garaged & well cared for since new, so it runs, drives, & looks much as it did when new almost 15 yrs. & 85K miles ago. It pulls smoothly & quickly to 125mph with yet another 24mph to go . It never gives you a clue when traveling at supra-legal speeds, it just feels better the faster you go, typical for a Beemer.Braking is quick & uneventful from any speed.
  



'                                                                                                                                          

Cons: This car is a joy to drive, but being an expensive German luxury Sports sedan, it requires a certain amount of expensive German parts & maintenance.

I Miss Her.... Sometimes. — This little car surprised me every day. It was just as powerful as any sports sedan I've driven, yet as classy and refined as a luxury car. It was 12 years old, but it's more solid than any other car I've had for any considerable period of time. It was also roomier than you'd expect: I'm 6'8" and fit comfortably. As far as ownership, it could be a pain if something goes wrong. However, that's a big if. I rarely had to even think of maintenance beyond tire rotation/oil changes. But when something did happen, it was very expensive... particularly for a college music student. But it made up for that when you hit the gas on a wide open stretch of road and just let her run!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance, value, quality.

Cons: Cost of ownership, poor fuel economy.

An Introduction To The Ultimate Driving Machine. — This is my toy and my baby,I chose my car over the last girlfriend...mine is the convertible,leather interior and not many thing in the way of gauges and such,it is after all a BMW,they don t pack their cars with gauges and useless junk,it is obviously not the most powerful car on the road,but it s power is more than adequate for it s size and it is and feels like a BMW....but then if I have to explain it,you won t understand....I love my baby car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks and drives good.

Cons: Nothing negative to say against it.
