- Great handling, good performance, good gas mileage, looks great
- No Warranty on Tires, Expensive to Replace Run Flats
After owning my car for one year, I feel that I need to write a serious review about this car to let everybody know about some issues before you find out on your own!
I am still satisfied with the performance of the car overall. However, I am extremely disappointed with the Run Flat Tires on this vehicle. I just had to replace all 4 tires on my car and I have less than 20,000 miles on the car. The cost, you may ask? $1200!
The maintenance package DOES NOT include any type of warranty on the tires! NONE! I am very disappointed about this.
Just beware people; nobody is going to tell you this when you are buying the car. If you ever get a nail in the tire, there is no fixing, no patching; you will have to replace the tire. That can cost you anywhere from 260 to 400 dollars.
If you can afford dealing with the tire situation, then it...read morehide

- Fun to drive, great looks and performance, awesome sound system
- Cup holders, storage, lacking some standard features
I've had this car since August and is definitely the best car I've owned. The performance is great and acceleration is awesome. I was sideswiped on I95 in the rain doing 75 MPH and I was able to control the car to the extent that damage was minimal - the Ultimate Driving machine.
Some features that are standard on much lower end cars (Homelink, Bluetooth, sat radio, a compass) are not standard which I find pretty bizarre. I think the Japanese manufacturers have the Germans beat on features, but don't come close in performance. Next time I will buy the upgraded package....read morehide

- Love the standard options, especially the low tire indicator.
- I wish I had room in the front to put my purse when I have a passenger.
I love the new red. Was planning on getting a used one until I saw the 07's. Since I plan on retiring in 5 years, I thought I might as well go for a new one and pay it off in that time. I am a school bus driver and have been driving for over 33 years. This BMW spoils me and I know in the future I will be buying another one. I wish BMW made school buses, but the new bus I have now is really nice which makes my job more enjoyable. Driving my BMW and knowing all the engineering that has gone into it makes me feel that I bought the right car. I was so impressed with all the reading material and dvd's that I received, was like taking a full-time class learning all BMW has to offer. It's like being a school bus driver, you have a million things to learn and the BMW has a great history and knowing your vehicle from top to bottom will only make you love everything about it. I wish
everyone could get a chance to drive a BMW and see the differents.
Being a professional driver, I know now that safety is the No. 1 importances in the minds of the BMW people. Thank You for creating a diamond on wheels....read morehide

- The Looks! the handling and how it drives. Fuel economy is good.
- Navigation system is too complicatedd to use. Cup holders, Run Flat tires. Premium Gasoline.
I have test driven an X3 to replaced my SUV that has been totaled. Then I saw the 3 series and decided maybe I give this one a test drive too. As soon as I got in the car I go WOW! The car feels like it is a part of you. My salesman gave me a really great deal and I went and bought it that same day without any further hesitations. I have this car for almost a month now and love it more every time I drive it. The acceleration is good and fuel economy is good for a 6 cylinder. 100,000 mile warranty with nothing to worry about except the run flat tires. can't beat that!...read morehide

- Love the way it looks in black, love the way it drives
- Hate the reliability issues that are unresolved, needs lots of oil and gas
Well what should I say? I don't usually waste my time writing reviews on cars but in order to let out my frustrations I'm doind everyone a service. Lets start by saying this is one of the best driving and most comfortable cars I've driven and THE biggest reason I bought it and I'm not mindlessly bashing my car. We had owned a 1990 328 and it was great and so decided to get another one. My wife loved the way it looks and combined with its driving and super cheap lease, decided to get it. I should have done more research however and see the reliability issues that plague not only this car but all BMWs. I thought they made the "ultimate driving machine" but I guess that doesnt mean it will hold up for more than 6 months. Things started to fail at about 15k miles or the first year we owned it.
The iDrive was a big mistake and a waste of money. It looks great but impossible to use while driving. When the weather go cold the screen was very touchy and several times did not work at all. BMW fixed with a new system-- the entire system. Soon after the power seats went out and BMW fixed it but soon after the same problem. so far croos our fingers its ok. Then one day the starter button refused to start the car and was fixed. The front wheel bearing made noises like an iPod in a blender while driving down I95 to VA and was nothing but a headache to get everything in order. Returning from another trip, the rear speaker mount vibrated out of place and continues to make broken speaker noise. We also had BMW add..... no joke, 14 quarts of oil over the course of one year! Is that a shame?! There was a few times it made a cloud of smoke but other than that where did it all go is the question. Thank God they pay all the maintenance costs cause I heard synthetic oil costs $15 per qt. BMW claims its normal and asking around other people have been having this problem as well and there is no solution but theyre working on it. so much for being environmentally friendly. In any event the probelms continue- the a/c belt went broke at 8k miles, the steering pump needed to be replaced at 9k miles and the blower motor burned out shortly after. Electrical problems here and there add up to a pain in the neck and take away the joy of driving this car. FYI we were 100% happy with our 2005 Chevy Suburban and would get another one but not another BMW....read morehide

- Drives like a slot car, stops on a dime
- so many problems i cant count, problems, problems, poor gas mileage, problems
Traded in my A4 after lease was up. Hated that car 100% for reliability issues was hoping BMW was better. Its not. As many problems as my A4- rear bearings replaced at 5k miles, trunk latch broken, rear suspension unbolted itself out of the frame, right rear brake caliper replaced with 15k miles, added 1qt oil every month, power window switch defect, interior panels shook loose needed new screws, front speaker loose, wiper motor burned out replaced at 18k miles, windshield cracked unexpectedly, rear defroster broken... thats my list so far and its been 1 year. I don't want to own this car for 5 years! Had my Toyota Avalon for 10 years and not a single problem. Never again will I plop down $7gs on a lease for a BMW thats for sure! Contacted BMWNA for an early return and so far maybe theres a chance. could just be a lemon according to them...read morehide

- Rides nice I like getting on the freeway with power and speed
- Fuel economy is lacking and car insurance if leasing can be expensive.
I like my 328I had it for 3 mos and it runs great, no mechanical problems other than the tire pressure . Its a smooth ride and stops on a dime.
The stereo system has nice sound. The back seats are reduced but its not a problem for me since I am usually the only one in the car most of the time. One thing if your going to lease the car ask about the insurance. I just received a notice from BMW requiring that on liability limits for bodily injury per person to be min $100,000 and bodily injury per occurrence min of $300,000. This is more than the car is worth! I have a good driving record so that can't be it. I would not finance it thru BMW next time. Too early to tell if I would lease another 3 series....read morehide
