    Amazing Car. — Uber fun to drive. My 3rd 3series BMW. Safety, handling and power to weight ratio are the best atributes; confort and technology closely follow. Great acceleration, braking, and looks; no noise, no blind spots. Also previously owned: 128i 2012 X1 2012 Z4 2011 335i 2009 6S/P 135i 2008 6S/P 530i 2001 Surfboard, board shorts and sunglasses.

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

    Pros: Safety, handling and power to weight ratio.

    Cons: Availability of maintenance service and parts. ......good only if you live in or near mayor cities.
    And most of the time stuck-up personnel that works for BMW but don't own one.

    Fast, Smooth, Inspirational — This sports edition is not for the faint of heart. The paddle shifters are addictive, and you will find yourself competing for 1st place at every intersection. The acceleration is so smooth you'll be up at 80 and it feels like 30. Whole lotta fun!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looks, style, and acceleration

    Cons: For tall people a bit of a challenge to get in and out. But once you're in it feels like a cockpit.

    Beautiful, Sporty, Fun! — The car is very well designed and built. The interior is awesome, the exterior design is great from all angles! The only flaw is BMW corporation, the resale value is terrible due to flooding the market with low price leasing deals.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I really enjoy this car as a daily driver. The automatic transmission is fun in manual mode using the paddle shifters!

    Cons: Back seats are useless for adults.

    Handles Like Its On Tracks — If you consider yourself a driver...if you love to drive, enjoy driving then you must buy yourself a BMW. Nothing else compares. I'd stick to the smaller chasis models (3, 1 series). The bigger the car gets, the more you sacrifice on handling and overall manuverability!

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

    Pros: Everything but the engine! 2.0 liters on any car is a crime! Especially M Sports suspension (stiffer, and car is lower than stock) M Contour seats, sports stearing wheel, premium sound system (4 subs under the seats)

    Cons: The engine! I'm a bit of a power demon. Grew up in the Gulf, Kuwait specifically. So drove Ferraris and Porsches at age 15.

    328xi — This car is nice for one person but becomes a tight squeeze for back seat passengers. It is a sports car with refinement. Has a lot of bells and whistles. Poor gas mileage is a trade off for great handling.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sporty, handles well

    Cons: cost, small for family, poor gas economy

    Perfect Compromise Between Practical And Fun. — Perfect compromise between practical and fun. Goes just as fast as you need, perfect driving position and handling, I often find myself driving too fast round corners just to see if I can ge tthe back end out and hold it. You can fit quite a lot of junk in the back. Not totally confortable though as the suspension is set up for feeling the road which is something your Granny doesn't really want...

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

    Pros: For the love of driving.

    Cons: Cost and comfort.

    Amazing Bmw Doesn't Recall The Injectors —

    I love the power, more torque than the M3 of the same year, the power and convenience that are applied to the car are outstanding. The quality of everything inside and out is great as well. Looks, wow what can I say, He is sexy and just a damn good looking car. The Power, O my G-D, I've been asked, so you couldn't get a faster car, apparently not. Maintenance, I hate you so much for one thing BMW, the cost of parts. There is one particular part and I would say to anyone thinking about getting a D to do it. But the Injectors, which all go out for no apparent reason cost 650 inch. BMW is not recalling these, no, every injector that goes out, they're recommending us to get 6 new installed to the tune of 4500$ all around. Here is the kicker these injectors the replacement ones that is, do not have the same part number. Hmmm, so what you're saying is that BMW sees that the injectors that are coming with the vehicle are garbage, so they're changing them to a more reliable one but not recalling the injectors because they're faulty but making the consumer buy 5k$ worth of work on a vehicle because they don't want to fix their own mistake. Don't get me wrong I love BMW's but this is such a crock of SH*& that it makes me angry, i mean at least release the rights to the injectors so some other company could manufacture them and I wouldn't be down 5k, besides that I had to spend another 2500$ doing a carbon cleaning, and replacing the EGR valve, because I wasn't the original owner, That was yet another frustrating incident. The GDI, gas direct injection, is an amazing technological feat, that diesels have been doing for some time i may add. But this also causes an issue, The regular fuel injection process, ends up cleaning the intake's top end of the valves, by spraying fuel down the intake and therefore the carbon that is created by burning fuel doesn't build up. GDI, does not do this, the build up got tho the point in this baby that the EGR valve was basically damaged, and should've been covered by the BMW emissions warranty, but again no. They made us pay out of pocket, as I was getting Medically retired from the Army for injuries sustained in the line of duty, costing thousands and thousands of dollars, just in time for me to not know when the retirement pay will kick in, Thanks BMW. The back seats, meh, they're not huge but unlike the E46 I had, they have room and people can actually sit in the back comfortably with us in the front still in relative comfort. Handeling, what can I say, Power plus grip and technology to back it up, just wow. The front seats, they're amazing comfortable, and you feel like you're strapping in to fly a jet, it kind of is the case. reliability, minus the things that should be recalled but won't be, is astounding, starts every time and runs great. As a family car, it has that down, its fast comfortable and reliable. I love it, and it can blow some cars out of the water. Price, it was used and we got it for a deal, its maintenance cost drives the rating of the price down because of that, but it is worth, if the other issues were to be fixed, the price, original MSRP of 51kish and our used price of 25k is a good point. Cargo capacity, I rate in cars based on how many dead bodies i could fit in the trunk, Im kidding. The truck is large, and spacious, i can and have fit may items from storage units in the trunk, i buy and sell them, yes like storage wars but not staged. It is a good size and could easily be used to pack enough stuff for a cross country trip. Overall I would love to have given it 5 stars, but in the end of the day, I simply can't do that. Not only are parts that should be recalled and things that should've been under warranty not, and therefore coming directly from my savings killing me. But its is the principal of it, if I got a part for this car, other than something simple. I could not install it and many shops can't either, because BMW does not release their programming information. Great example, I had a E46, the predecessor to the E90, If i were given two fuel injectors, I could only install one, that being onto the E46, but still with some amount of hassle. Example 2 If i were given a fuel injector for my Toyota Supra, and one for my 335D, I could not install the parts onto the 335D because I do not have nor do i want to spend 15K$ to buy the rights for the program for one year. I do really love the car, but BMW has let me down, It pains me to rate this wonderful car lower than my 98 dodge ram. If BMW USA were to o i don't know, stop making thousands of once loyal customers pay substantial amounts of moneys to replace a flawed part, from their product, or even offer a stipend to help reduct the cost of said issue. I would not only raise my rating but once again I would venture forth and buy another Beem.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great comfort, reliability and quality

    Cons: The price of basic parts
