    This Car Is Awesome But Now I Need A Family Car. — I love everything about the car except run flat tires, not only are they very expensive but unrepairable. I switch to Pirelli Nero for a much better ride. The navigation could have been much easier to use for that year but BMW changed it for later years which is good. The car should unluck automatically as you approach the car doors or trunk like the Lexus but not a option yet.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is the ultimate driving machine.  It has the super power of the twin turbos, the comfort and luxury interior of what a true sports car should be, coupled with the all year round integrated convertible top. What a beautiful European interior

    Cons: Not too crazy about the run flat tires.  I know its a new technology but they should make them better.

    2008 Bmw 335-i Coupe — When this car was not in the shop - it was a blast to drive. The handling and performance were fantastic. The quality of construction - fit and finish, were great. It had very good highway and city mileage that were a little above EPA estimates.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Just like the commercials say - it is absolutely fun to drive. BMW says Premium fuel is required, however it will run just fine on good quality of Regular or Mid-Grade gas.

    Cons: Unfortunately, we must have had the bad one in the bunch. It spent more time in the shop than all the cars we have had combined.

    Sweet Car, Great Quality, Fast, Efficient. — The best part about this car was how quiet it was inside. All you heard was the engine and the sweet Harmon Kardon stereo. Everything else was muted and it rode great and handled all weather situations easily. Highly recommended.

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

    Pros: Fantastic all-around vehicle.

    Cons: Poor gas mileage when you really beat on it, otherwise great.

    /// Great Bimmer — I love just about everything about this car. The power, sound, and of course handling of a BMW. So many little touches and nice things that even after 4yrs make you smile when you drive the car. It's a great BMW and really rewarding to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, Power, Exhaust Note, Refinement... It's a BMW sport coupe....

    Cons: None.

    I Love This Car. — This is a fun car. Not a family car. It is wonderful to work thru the manual transmission and feel the response from the car. It is truly an engineering marvel. Many a head turns when the hard top folds into the trunk. Truly an ultimate driving machine.

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

    Pros: Cornering, acceleration, feel

    Cons: Trunk space with the top down is very tight. Price.

    True Luxery Car — there is no down side to this ultimate driving machine. the 6 cylinder engine gives you the power of a muscle car and gets great milage, city and highway. there is no road noise and the bose hd system is fantastic. every safety system on this auto.

    Pros: very comfortable electronic, leather seats, with lumbar support. the graphite metal paint is a real stand out. this roadster is a pleasure in the city or autobahn.

    Cons: none

    Classically Styled Sedan Bmw 328i — Reliable and stylish family sedan. - Great handling with all the bells and whistles. I like being able to open the sunroof and enjoying the fresh air. This car has a nice solid feel that makes you feel safe driving it. No leaning around curves (it hugs the road). 06/13/2012

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Classically styled car with everything you need in a sedan.  Burgundy color called Barbera Red.   

    Cons: Has indicators for rain, freezing, tire pressure.  Sometimes the car tells you too much (haha)

    Typical Awesome Bmw Automobile — This car first saved my life from an emotional pitfall I experienced in my personal life in early 2008. The day I drove this car away from its delivery in Germany I realized how awesome life still was and that it was still worth living. Then, in March of 2012, I was passing a slow moving Mack truck on a 2-lane 70mph Texas FM highway that decided to turn left utilizing no signal when I was approximately 200 ft behind it with ~50mph of closure. I came out with minor scratches and a burn on my right wrist from the airbag and nothing more. I miss it every day.

    Pros: Loved this car - Molly

    Cons: none noted

    Bmw 328i 2008 — You are getting a very good entry level luxury sedan for a very low price. This car performs! If you are not participating in a race, 328's power and handling is amazing! Sporty and at the same time luxurious. Never had a problem with a cargo space...luggage, rims and tires, small furniture....all fits in! If a driver has long legs (like I do ;) ) there may be not enough space at the back. Maintenance is a bit expensive. "Ok" on fuel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car is comfortable and performs well!

    Cons: Maintenance is overpriced.
