    Back seat was not big enough for two large kid car seats. Other than that great car, drove the 335D.

    Dreamdriver - Total Driving Immersion — I loved everything about this car, from the amazing interior with dazzling lights, phenomenal sound system, spot on handling and smooth ride, super comfortable seats, voice command. Not a lot of room in the back, but this really isn't a family car. Extremely responsive, sounds meaty with the top down, smooth effective brakes - although you only need the brakes to stop as it can handle any cornering situation. I will literally cry when it is gone... Most amazing car I have ever owned - bar none. It is the ultimate driving machine.

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

    Pros: This is an amazing vehicle - looks smokin' hot.  Nothing but looks, ooohs and aahhhs when I drop the hard top and morph it into a convertible.  Total chick (and guy if a gal is driving) magnet car - be very careful if you are married!  Super responsive, unbelievable handling, fast out of the gate, luxurious interior.  Sound system - sometimes I just go in to listen to music.  Great gas mileage - unless you get on it heavy.  Most comfortable seats I own with memory and both heated in front.  Welcome lights, door handle lights, uber quiet with the top up.  Sounds gutsy with the top down.  I literally Love this car.  But I have to pay my son's college bills...hate to part with it in every way.  Never had so much fun - in three words:  Pure Driving Enjoyment!

    Cons: There are no cons - really.  I never felt like the vehicle wasn't worth the 65K I paid for it brand new.  The only con would be - be careful if you are married - this car attracts!

    It's The Honda Accord Of Our Age — It's a perfectly reasonable car. Goes fast when you want it too, uses less gas when you want that. Back seat is big enough so the kids don't complain. Just wish it were a bit less bland. I used to own a 1999 E39 and a 2002 before that so this is really on a downward slope of excitement...although it just does whatever pretty much...Its the BMW for folks who don't care much about cars I guess...

    Pros: Comfortable, quick, great ergonomics...it's the Honda Accord of our age/neighborhood

    Cons: It's the Honda Accord of our age/neighborhood, the stop/start engine feature is poorly done.

    Is A 328i Coupe A Perfect Car For A Family? — Perfect car for a couple....not a great car for a family of 4 I really enjoyed this car, but honestly it is not a perfect car for a group of 3-4 people ..... If you're just a couple and and don't have any kids it will work out for you....

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: You get all the power, style, looks and handling

    Cons: not a great family car, if there are more than two people traveling with this car, you won't have enough cargo capacity!

    Sharp Looking And Handling — I like the look of the car, interior and exterior are top notch. The NA engine is super smooth. Transmission awesome in DS but a little jerky in D. Only regret is i didn't add sport seats, it will be on the must have list of my next 3.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handling

    Cons: ergonomics of non-sport seat
