3 Series Is King Over The Road — Great car just a lil demanding maintance wise, i do drive a lot so i have to service it almost every two months just to keep it in top shape. The gas mileage is amazing, on the highway i get almost 33mpg. The only problem i 've had has been with my tail lights, the car blew several lights bulbs & now the problem has moved to the front end. Other than that it's an amazing car.

Pros: You gotta have it

Cons: Although BMW covers all scheduled service, it's still costly to maintain. Just four tires cost me almost $1500

My Views On My 3-series Diesel M-sport... — M-sport handling is fantastic, makes it a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging drive. Typically excellent BMW build quality throughout. Sporty coupe looks with sensible rear seats. MPG from the diesel engine is excellent as well. Very pleased with the car overall.

Pros: Engaging driver's car...

Cons: Miss my big petrol engines...

335i Leasee — Great car, can be high maintenance at times. But best part is that you can get free service in most contracts. Gas mileage greatly depends on how hard you drive it however its hard not to push the limit because the car begs you to do it.

Pros: Great looking car, very fun to drive

Cons: Can be high maintenance and gas mileage can get low based on how you drive

My 328xi — This is one of the best cars I have ever owned. Handles like a go-kart, and with the all wheel drice traction is never a problem, my lease is up in a year and I plan to stay with BMW. I my switch to the 335xi wich is the same car save for the 300hp twin turbo engine. I would love the M3 but that is a bit out of my grasp at the moment

Pros: Handling

Cons: a bit pricy

Not The Best Pulling Car! — if you are looking for a quick on acceleration dont get one of these - as acceleration poor, actually none, its never moved!!! no roof, so slightly cold and wet!! Lovely cheeky grin - so does have that feel good factor!! fantastic on petrol, extremely low mileage! disadvantages: the colour, looks a bit like a squashed banana and can only fit 2 people

Pros: great if you don't want go anywhere, cheap to run

Cons: not good in an emergency!

I Understand Why Enthusiasts Are In Love. —

I used to think that the 3 series was severely overrated and way too common. But after test driving one, I finally understood why auto journalists and enthusiasts constantly praise this car! Coming from a '98 GS400, I was used to swift acceleration, but a numb driving experience. This 328i accelerates just as well as the GS, which had 300hp, but lets me feel like I am connected with the road. PLUS! Driving on the highways is a smooth and SOLID experience. And I actually like the run flats. I thought it would be harsh especially because I came from a Lexus, but they're not bad at all. Plus driving on LA-area freeways did not prove to be punishing at all, so I have no complaints there! The only options I got were the iDrive, iPod adapter, and the Steptronic tranny, and I got an amazing price. Plus it's fuel efficient (I'm averaging about 22mpg combined), and coupled with the 4 years/50K miles free maintenance, this was the better value compared to the Lexus IS I almost considered. I definitely recommend this car! If you love driving, exhaust notes, and a good value, this is the car to buy. One of the few downsides I have with this car is the so-so cup holders and the brake dust that constantly accumulates! But I have a strict no-drinking/eating in my car and the brake dust just wipes off, so really the downsides are minor. I recommend!

Pros: STEERING. Engine. Ride quality on the freeway. Value.

Cons: Cup holders. Brake Dust.

Bmw 325d — Performance - powerfull engine, great torque - can't feel it's a diesel! Build Quality - Perfect, no ratteling Appearance - doesn't matter, but properly some people is looking. Cost of Ownership - Unknow, but properly high Fun Factor - Funny, acceleration makes you smile Just mounted a hitch and sports leather seats with memory - maybe xenon will come later

Pros: Fast

Cons: Hard shocks

ASTC Control, ABS, 0-100 km/h in less in 5 . something secs. Brakes are awesome. Bluetooth capable. Xenon angel eyes. This BMW is too much car for this ugly and ruined city.

Pros: EVERYTHING

Cons: That is not made for Colombia roads
