We bought our 328i used with 44K miles
after having it checked out by BMW
shop. The driving experience is
beautiful with all the power I think is
necessary. The automatic is flawless
in it smoothness. The engine begs to
be driven. The greatest drawback to
this car is the repair bills which seem
to happen far too often. Parts are not
cheap!!!!! Do not buy this model or
brand of car unless you can get a
warranty from BMW. $1500 worth of
service each year is obscene,
particularly in the days of Acuras,
Passats and Lexus. I will miss the
driving experiance, but my retirement
will not, I'm afraid, allow another BMW
in my life!
There's nothing quite like it in
driving the 328. And in today's world
of jellybean cars, it's probably among
the most handsome in it's simple
architecture and styling.
The reliability of the complex sensors
and electrical apparatus needs
attention. I hope in later models
these items were addressed.
