    Awesome, Best Car I've Owned. — Awesome car, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a vehicle with performance, comfort and handling as well as looks. I have never driven a car this fun to drive. If you're going to drive it in the winter check for paint chips as the paint is soft. For that price, I love it.

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

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Paint chips during winter driving.

    My 2011 Bmw 328i — In regular mode car drives nice and shift well. Sport mode is super fun! and manual mode emulates stick shift well...and super super fast! :) No repairs yet interior and exterior style is bar none. Cost is high but you pay for what you get. Gas takes 91 octane but will probably run on 87 but i would not do that! Its a SULEV...super ultra low emission vehicle...so its greener? getting about 26-30mpg...more like 26 because I drive spirited :). Super FUN to drive...LOVE THIS CAR...its my baby...next to my gf

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

    Pros: Fast,FUN,Style,engineering

    Cons: $$$$ ,parts are expensive

    I May Buy This One At The End Of The Lease So I Guess I Like It. —

    When the transmission is set to "sport" mode the car runs aggressively...very nice throttle tip in and shift points. During deceleration the car does not freewheel but acts much more like a manual driven correctly, down shifting as the car slows to a stop so that it is always poised to accelerate. With the "normal" gear selection the transmission up shifts just a little too quickly, although the torque curve of the 3.0 is flat enough not to bog the car down. I like the space gray color as it is close to the sterling gray on the 2011 Mustang GT which I really wanted but the lease deals were no where near compatible to BMW's offerings. I am very happy with the standard features of the car and the only two items I am not happy with are the run-flat tires, however I was lucky to have the Contis vs. the Bridgestones. I want my Extreme Contact DWS from my previous BMW and I will take a chance on a flat. At least give us a choice BMW! I have driven the car a whopping 400+ miles in the first month so I will save further comments until I have at least 3K miles on her.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun yet conservative car at legal speeds so far (still in break-in period lol).

    Cons: A coupe or convertible would be more fun!

    Worth It If You're An Enthusiast! — Great fun to drive. A little short on space in the rear seat compared to the comparable Audis and the suspension is a little too hard for the very rough Indian roads (combined low profile runflats). But still brings a smile to your face everytime you push it hard.

    Pros: Fun.

    Cons: Expensive

    Great Car — This is a great car. It is built solid and is fun to drive. Acceleration and handling is great. The four year/50,000 mile warranty maintenance is also a big plus. Everyone we know who has seen this car or ridden in it love it and would like to own one.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: fun

    Awesome Vehicle — awesome all rolund vehicle. Alot of power can be released with a simple turbo tuner. Handling is awesome and holds around corners. As for performance the N54 motor is one of the best motor BMW has produced to date. The new M3 will be sporting this twin turbo motor from 2012 onwards

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

    Pros: performance

    Perfectly Balanced Automobile- Good For The Long Run. — I have owned four BMW’s over the years, and this is the absolute best example of the brand. This car is a gas to drive: perfectly behaved, and really fun, all at the same time. It is very reliable, and it demonstrates a balance not found in many 4 door sedans. Powerful and fun when you want it, buttoned up and well-behaved when you need it. Stereo is great - no need to spring for the Logic 7. Great long-distance cruiser- really the ultimate driving machine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, power on demand, great brakes, corners like on rails, terrific climate control, big trunk, big sunroof, great paddle shifting fun.

    Cons: No cons.
