The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports sedan class with its near unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328i Sedan for 2008 incorporates the cleaner lines and more powerful engines that evolved from BMW's 2006 redesign.
BMW engines express the performance artistry at the heart of these vehicles. The rear-wheel-drive 328i features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 230 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque. It is an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 6.3 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic, which includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes, makes the jump in 6.9 seconds. The EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with the automatic transmission, it's rated at 19/28 mpg, while the manual rates 18/28 mpg.
With this powerful acceleration comes the handling that established BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. Reviewers consistently cite the sense of confidence the 328i gives drivers in every conceivable road situation and condition as testimony to its handling prowess. Specifically, minimal body lean and "on rails" cornering, along with the industry standard for steering wheel feedback, all inspire driver confidence.
The 3 Series won the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest possible rating in both frontal offset and side impact tests. The 328i includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The main sedan interior criticisms stem from the lack of space both in the front and especially in the back seat, which suits two rather than three bench-seat passengers. Yet "Bimmer" fans will tell you that it's the 3 Series' compact size that's the key to its handling prowess.
Reviewers are unanimously negative regarding BMW's iDrive electronic control system, and they consider the fact that the system is optional on the 3 Series a plus - you aren't forced to endure it.
For its class, the 328i Sedan is still the "ultimate driving machine."

The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports sedan class with its nearly unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328i Wagon applies these characteristics to a wagon body style.
BMW engines express the performance artistry at the heart of the 3 Series. The rear-wheel-drive 328i features a 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder engine that produces 230 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque. It's an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 6.5 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic, which includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes, makes the jump in 7.1 seconds. The EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with the automatic transmission, it's rated at 18/27 mpg, while the manual rates 17/27 mpg.
With this powerful acceleration comes the handling that established BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. Reviewers consistently cite the sense of "sports car" and not "wagon" that the 328i Wagon provides. Reviewers write about the sense of confidence the 328i gives drivers in every conceivable road situation and condition as testimony to its handling prowess.
In federal government crash tests, the Wagon earned four out of five stars for both driver and front passenger protection in front impact crashes. In side impact crashes, it rated five out of five stars for both front seat and back seat occupant protection. The 328i includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, a tire pressure monitor, front-seat side airbags, and front and rear head protection system.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. "Exquisite" is the word most commonly used for the Wagon's interior. "Cramped" and "tight," however, are the words most commonly used regarding its interior space. Maximum cargo space is a barely adequate 60.9 cubic feet; that drops to 16.2 cubic ft. with the rear seats upright.
If you don't have a full family load to haul and enjoy spirited driving, then the 328i Wagon is still the "ultimate driving wagon."

The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports sedan class with its nearly unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328xi Sedan for 2008 incorporates the styling and performance that evolved from BMW's 2006 redesign along with the latest generation xDrive system.
The all-wheel-drive 328xi features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 230 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque. It's an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 6.9 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic, which includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes, makes the jump in 7.1 seconds. The EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with either the automatic or manual transmission, it's rated at 17/25 mpg.
With its powerful acceleration comes the handling that established BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. The 328xi combines traditional 3 Series handling prowess with the latest generation all-wheel drive. xDrive is a sophisticated, intelligent all-wheel-drive system that starts with a 40/60 front/rear torque bias and adjusts torque fore and aft according to road conditions. It is integrated with the Dynamic Stability-Control system, which adjusts lateral traction to counter excessive oversteer or understeer.
The 3 Series won the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest possible rating in both frontal offset and side impact tests. The 328xi includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The main sedan interior criticisms stem from the lack of space both in the front and especially in the back seat, which suits two rather than three bench-seat passengers. Yet "Bimmer" fans will tell you that it's the 3 Series' compact size that's the key to its handling prowess.

For its class, the 328xi Sedan is still the "ultimate driving machine," come fair or foul weather.

The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports class with its nearly unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328i Coupe for 2008 incorporates the cleaner lines and more powerful engines that evolved from BMW's 2006 redesign.
BMW engines express the performance artistry at the heart of these vehicles. The rear-wheel-drive 328i Coupe features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 230 hp with 200 pound-feet of torque. It is an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 6.3 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes and makes the jump in 6.9 seconds. The EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with the automatic transmission, it's rated at 19/28 mpg, while the manual rates 18/28 mpg.
With the 3 Series' robust acceleration comes the handling that established BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. Reviewers consistently cite the sense of confidence the 328i Coupe gives drivers in every conceivable road situation and condition as testimony to its handling prowess. Specifically, minimal body lean and "on rails" cornering along with the industry standard for steering wheel feedback all inspire driver confidence.
The 3 Series won the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest possible rating in both frontal offset and side impact tests. The 328i Coupe includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The 328i Coupe is designed for four passengers, with two rear seats divided by a center console. The front seats continue the BMW tradition of providing excellent support and comfort. The optional Sport Package provides power adjustable sports seats.
However, reviewers are so unanimously negative regarding BMW's iDrive electronic control system that they consider the fact that the system is optional on the 3 Series a plus - you aren't forced to endure it.
For its class, the 328i Coupe is still the "ultimate driving machine."

The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports sedan class with its nearly unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328xi Sports Wagon marries these characteristics to a wagon body style and adds the latest generation of BMW's xDrive system.
BMW engines express the performance artistry at the heart of the 3 Series. The all-wheel-drive 328xi features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 230 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque. It is an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 7.1 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic, which includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes, makes the jump in 7.3 seconds. The EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with either the automatic or manual transmission, it's rated at 17/25 mpg.
Reviewers consistently cite the sense of "sports car" and not "wagon" that the 328xi Wagon provides. In addition, xDrive is a sophisticated, intelligent all-wheel-drive system that starts with a 40/60 front/rear torque bias and adjusts torque fore and aft according to road conditions. It is integrated with the Dynamic Stability-Control system, which adjusts lateral traction to counter excessive oversteer or understeer.
In federal government crash tests, the Wagon earned four out of five stars for both driver and front passenger protection in front impact crashes. In side impact crashes, it earned five out of five stars for both front seat and back seat occupant protection. The 328xi includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, a tire pressure monitor, front-seat side airbags, and a front and rear head protection system.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. "Exquisite" is the word most commonly used for the Wagon's interior. "Cramped" and "tight," however, are the words most commonly used regarding its interior space. Maximum cargo space is a barely adequate 60.9 cubic feet; that drops to 16.2 cubic ft. with the rear seats upright.
For its class, the 328xi Sports Wagon is still the "ultimate driving machine," come fair or foul weather.

The BMW 3 Series has long ruled the luxury sports sedan class with its nearly unbeatable blend of smooth, high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 335i Sedan for 2008 incorporates the cleaner lines and more powerful engines that evolved from BMW's 2006 redesign.
The rear-wheel-drive 335i features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine using a new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology. To provide more power, BMW straps on intercooled twin turbochargers with direct fuel injection. The result is fervent praise for the 335's smooth 300 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque - without turbo lag. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, or you can opt for an optional six-speed Steptronic automatic that includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes.
BMW conservatively gives a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds for the manual and 5.6 seconds for the automatic. Icing on the cake is an EPA estimate of 17/26 mpg for both the manual and automatic.
With this hot acceleration comes the handling that established BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. Reviewers consistently cite the sense of confidence the 335i gives drivers in every conceivable road situation and condition as testimony to its handling prowess. Specifically, minimal body lean and "on rails" cornering, along with the industry standard for steering wheel feedback, all inspire driver confidence.
The 3 Series won the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest possible rating in both frontal offset and side impact tests. The 335i includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes, dynamic brake control, stability control (which incorporates disc-pad wiping of brake rotors when windshield wipers are in use), run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
3 Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The main sedan interior criticisms stem from the lack of space both in the front and especially in the back seat, which suits two rather than three bench-seat passengers. Yet, "Bimmer" fans will tell you that it's the 3 Series' compact size that's the key to its handling prowess.
Reviewers are so unanimously negative regarding BMW's iDrive electronic control system that they consider the fact the system is optional on the 3-Series a plus - you aren't forced to endure it.
For its class, the 335i Sedan is still the "ultimate driving machine."

The 335xi Sedan for 2008 incorporates styling and performance evolved from BMW's 2006 redesign along with the latest version of the xDrive system.

BMW conservatively gives a 0-60 time of 5.3 seconds for the manual and 5.4 seconds for the automatic. Icing the cake are EPA estimates of 16/25 mpg for the manual and 17/25 mpg for the automatic.
With robust acceleration comes the handling that helped establish BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. The 335xi combines traditional 3-Series handling prowess with the latest generation all-wheel xDrive, a sophisticated, intelligent all-wheel-drive system that starts with a 40/60 front/rear torque bias and can modify torque fore and aft according to road conditions. It is integrated with the Dynamic Stability-Control system, which adjusts lateral traction to counter oversteer and understeer.
The 3-Series won the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest possible rating in both frontal offset and side impact tests. The 335xi includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes - which set another industry standard - and dynamic brake control, which wipes brake rotors dry when windshield wipers are in use. Stability control, run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags are also standard.
3-Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The main sedan interior criticisms center on a lack of space, both in the front and especially the back seat, which suits two rather than three passengers.

The BMW 3-Series has long ruled the luxury sports class with its near unbeatable blend of smooth high-performance power, supple handling, and comfortable interiors. The 328i hardtop convertible is a new trim for BMW.
BMW engines express the performance artistry at the heart of these vehicles. The rear-wheel-drive 328i Convertible features a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 230 hp and 200 pound-feet of torque. It's an engineering marvel, using new lightweight magnesium/aluminum composite alloy for its block and incorporating, for the first time in a six-cylinder engine, BMW's Valvetronic variable valve lift technology.
The standard six-speed manual transmission traverses the 0-60 jump in 6.7 seconds. The optional six-speed Steptronic automatic, which includes normal, sport, and manual shift modes, makes the jump in 7.2 seconds. EPA fuel estimates show off the technology built into this engine - when paired with the automatic transmission, it's rated at 18/27 mpg, while the manual rates 17/27 mpg.
With aggressive acceleration comes the handling that helped establish BMW's "ultimate driving machine" slogan. The Convertible chassis has been stiffened 50%, making it 400 to 450 pounds heavier than the Coupe. Reviewers report it flex-free and say it still handles like a BMW. The hardtop folds back into the trunk in 22 seconds and launches out and up in 23 seconds. Trunk space drops from the Coupe's 12.4 to 7.4 cubic feet. However, the rear seatbacks fold down to provide a flat-bottomed cargo area, and the car has an optional trunk pass-through.
The 328i Convertible includes as standard safety equipment antilock disc brakes - which set another industry standard - and dynamic brake control, which wipes brake rotors dry when windshield wipers are in use. Stability control, run-flat tires, front-seat side airbags, and a rollover protection system that includes pop-up rollover bars are also standard.
3-Series cabins feature high-grade materials, exceptional build quality, and modern design. The 328i Convertible is designed for four passengers, with the rear seat divided by a center console. The front seats continue the BMW tradition of providing excellent support and comfort. The optional Sport Package provides powered adjustable sports seats.
Reviewers are unanimously negative regarding BMW's iDrive electronic control system, so they consider the fact that the system is optional on the 3-Series a plus - you aren't forced to endure it. Despite this one optional flaw, for its class, the 328i Convertible is still the "ultimate driving machine."
