    The 328i Is A Fun, Fast And Reliable Vehicle — Truly there is not much to dislike. It drives very well. Has a solid feel from closing the door to taking a corner. Even the stereo sound great, especially with Sirius/XM. My kids love riding in it and my wife enjoys it when I take her "on a date" - sure beats the minivan she drives.

    Pros: Awesome driving machine.  Handles well.

    Cons: Accelerator a little slow off the line.  More of a "how to drive it" issue than car issue.

    Awesome Car — The car drives great. Feels like it should be on a track with lots of curves. The M package on it gives it a lot of attention. The only con for the car is the back seat is small if you put the front seats all the way back. It is still a luxury sports car that can haul children in the back perfectly. Great car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun car to drive.  Looks great.

    Cons: Little leg room in the back seat if big people are in the front.

    Very Nice — Overall very good car for power and comfort. Very well built. Very comfortable in long drive. Gas milage is good but could be better. Navigation and Premium package are very helpful and adds a luxury to it. Traction and stability controls are very good for unsafe road conditions.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, Speed, Comfort, Reliability, and Look. Also like Navigation and premium package. Interior seats are very attractive with black color interior.

    Cons: Gas milage could be better.

    Best Sedan Available — I have no dislikes for this car! After having many fine sports cars I have found a sedan that drives like one! And the sport seats are the most comfortable, adjustable seats that I have ever seen. BMW puts more thought and soul into their cars than any other in my opinion. Don't see me leaving this brand ever... This car at 90 feels rock solid. Would love to drive it on the autobahn! Would be fun at 150 I am sure.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Sport seats, suspension, steering wheel and shifter.  What a tight ride!  This "sedan" is an amazing fast sports car!

    Cons: Price of a new one!  I buy used so the price doesn't bother me.  Plenty of deals on used ones if you know where to look.  Obviously the parts are more expensive than some cars but my buddy buys them with approx. 100,000 and drives them to 250,000 and rarely has any problems so don't believe all the horror storys you see.

    The Closest Thing To An M3 — This is a great car for anyone looking for a 3 series BMW. The extra 25HP really does make a difference from the plain 335. It is an athletic vehicle and looks great. This is the closest car to an M3 that an individual can own, while not having to spend over $50,000. All around this is a great car to own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great vehicle all around, drives well, comfortable, fast, and agile. Along with it being fun to drive it looks great with the upgraded trim and wheels.

    Cons: The gas is not the best but it really depends on how you drive. If you drive more aggressive, then it does not do well with the mpg. The other con would be it is not meant to be for families that need transportation.

    Black Beauty — I love this car it is very fast, with excellent handling ability. For a diesel it is very quiet. It has a stealth like appearance. On top of all that it gets incredibly good gas mileage! It has been a very fun car to own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Amazingly fast responsive car with excellent gas mileage

    Cons: Size

    Safe Sedan With Bit A Fun Hidden — BMW should not have changed the steering-feedback with the new 3-series. Driving the E90 gives wonderful road feedback. Seats are comfortable and supportive- the M seats more so. Have to say the M package has numerous hidden features that KBB, Edmunds, etc do not value, so if you're looking at a rare 3-series with the M package, you'll really need to add between $2-3000 for the true value of the car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good handling, comfortable seats

    Cons: OEM run-flats are hard!!  Plus, the rear tires with the M Sport package are over halfway finished at 12,000 miles

    Perfect Entry-level Bmw. — Appearance: Loved the look of the face lifted E90. It was very comfortable. Build quality: No noises or blind spots. Only scheduled maintenance at no cost. Milage acceptable for everyday driving. Performance: Perfect brakes and perfect handling. Acceleration acceptable. 200hp with 200torques is on the low side for a car this size/weight, but overall a huge difference to my 2005 Toyota Echo. Always felt extremely safe and in complete control driving it. This car was a lot of fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Amazing handling for its price.

    Cons: Low torque increased fuel consumption.

    Bmw 328i — This is a great little car, sporty and quick.. fun to drive. The only bad thing is you get funny looks as a dude driving, so mainly the woman drives it. The 2 door version is what we have, so it sometimes gets a look as if it was an M series.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very sporty

    Cons: Chick car
