Any important differences between a 2007 328i and a 2009 328i?

Asked by Nov 16, 2014 at 10:54 AM about the 2007 BMW 3 Series 328i Sedan RWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I already put down $500 to mark a 2007 328i as "sold" and take it off of the lot. After
coming home and researching, some knowledgeable sources claim that the 2009 is "the
only year worth buying". Please shed some light on this question! I need to make an
official decision by tomorrow. Thank you!

Both year cars are pretty much identical. Why did your source claim the 2009 is better? Is it due to the Engine lifter ticking noise? In 2009 BMW updated the design, but no guarantees that it won't be there. It's annoying to some but no real damage to the engine. You can read through the hundred or so pages of this thread.....http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13504

Both cars are E90 chassis so the basic vehicle is the same. The 2009 will have 15 more hp and 15 more ft lbs, an HD radio option, paddle shifters on sport models, silver trim available, a small increase on the rear track, improvements to the i.drive and a hard drive for navigation equipped models. I have a 2009 328i sedan for sale, but if you have put your money down you should go get that car. Hope that helps

The 07 328i is just as reliable as any other year 3 series. A friend of mine has the 2007 sedan and has 192,000 miles,other than oil changes and regular maintenance the car is like new. I say go for it. You will enjoy it.
