    Great Handling Sports Sedan For A Couple With A Small Dog — Overall the X drive is a great car for daily driving and all around fun. Smallish back seat is expected in a 3 series, however, most understand the size and if back seat room is essential then consider a 5 Series. AWD is great in all conditions. Lack of cupholders in console is disappointing.

    Pros: Great handling X Drive, remember to disengage DTC when requiring powering out of a snowdrift, etc...  Smooth and powerful, fast, great sound system, easy to use I drive.

    Cons: Back seat room tight, a bit noisy in my opinion, lack of nice cupholders, don't like pull out of dash rings.

    Awesome! — Outstanding car with great handling. Sporty and stylish. A real eye catcher. Hard to find a convertible with this style top and feel of security. New tires handle the pavement well with grip allowing for quick take offs and stops.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great Handling and Power, great lines and style

    Cons: Trunk space somewhat limited when top retracted

    Great Engineering And Performance — This 3 series is consistently build with great engineering, solid engine performance, good braking and ride.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great handling, robust engine, good braking and great engineering.

    Cons: The Coupe is really a 2 seater

    My Experience With The 328i Coupe — overall its a nice car to have for the summer but wouldnt recommend it for a young man like me .. its pricey on the gas, its oil change is too much, and its jus a showoff car. but its still a bmw that germaan powerr

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

    Pros: when someone thinks they can beat me on the highway/streets i love puttn it in sport!!!

    Cons: gets dirty on the interior tooo quik also the hing that gives u the seat belts never give me it but gives the passenger his/hers always.

    Head Turning Coupe With Lots Of Power. — I originally went to BMW to purchase a 128i as a 3rd car to drive on the weekends. I drove it and liked it, but then drove a 135i and LOVED it. They didn't have the color I wanted in the 135i, so I looked at the 335ix and fell in love with the fact it had the same power (albeit a heavier car) and the bonus of xDrive. I am glad I went with the larger 3 series simply because of the extra cabin space and the back seat actually is quite spacious for my 13 and 10 years olds!

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

    Pros: Acceleration, Cabin room,

    Cons: Cup holders, Brake dust, Maintenance Costs

    The Best Vehicle I Have Ever Owned — This is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. As for BMW, the service is great and you can't beat the price when you have a service contract! I really enjoy the hands-free ability of using my cell phone. The stereo system sounds great and the ability to play my podcast is really awesome.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great fuel mileage compared to my previous pickup.  It handle great and has the power needed to get in and out of traffic.

    Cons: I can't pull my boat... :(

    Bmw 328i Coupe — This is a great Bavarian Sport Car. The BMW's are real fast cars and runs great in freeways and cities. The car handle very well and has a great engine responsiveness associated with the fuel economy for a 6 Cylinder 24 Valves car. If you have a big family you may have it as a second car.

    Pros: Great Sport Car

    Cons: Low Suspension since has sport package

    Killer Car On A Budget — Great car. Get the Dinan upgrade!! Faster than M3 I was so impressed by my buddies car. I bought one. The Dinan adds approx 60 more HP. Highly recommend this car. You should try one. You will most likely buy it.

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

    Pros: Unbelievably fast

    Cons: None
