I bought this car used with 70k miles on it. Its only been a couple of months but the car has been a dream to drive. Handling is awesome and power has been good. I have owned an infinite G20, WRX, Maxima and accord. This is the best of all of them. G20 and accord lacked power. Maxima lacked fit and finish and the handling was just ok. Power was great on the Max. WRX was cheap on the inside but handling and power was excellent. Turbo lag was fustrating and the gas milage sucked. 328i great handling, great power, fit and finish is excellent. Stero puts all others to shame even the Bose that was in the Max. After looking at repairs records as long as you stay away from the turbo BMW are fairly reliable.

Beautiful — The backseat. Small children are the only people who would be comfortable in the back. The cup holder is the middle seat, which means if you have three people in the back than you do not have a cup holder for them. Huge inconvenience.

Pros: Great handling, great features, a lot of power.

Cons: Extremely small and uncomfortable backseat.
