1998 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328is 2dr Coupe


Review

I cannot complain about many things about this car. My favorite part, performance, is exceptional for a 6 cylinder. The throttle is responsive and the pick-up and 1st, 2nd and even 3rd gear will push you into your seat, even the exhaust has a subtle growl. The ergonomics of the car are perfect. Radio controls, air conditioning controls, gearshift, blinker, headlight switch, seat adjustments... Everything is perfectly placed. The integrity of the interior materials is superb. The leather is strong and the stitching doesn't break. The interior is very beautiful and the exterior of the car is stunning. You have to drive one to see how many heads turn as you drive by.


Favorite Features

Performance, 190 horsepower has never done so much in a car. Exterior styling is beautiful, clean lines and very tasteful trim and bumpers. Interior styling doesn't have the cheap "Mustang" look. The car is a definite head-turner. Very reliable, integrity of parts is stunning.


Suggested Improvements

Cupholders are made for soda cans and fast-food cups at most, nothing large. Glovebox lid is somewhat thin. Not all cars have keyless entry or an alarm, but do have a locking steering wheel and other safety measures.

Review

Black on black with tinted windows and a sun roof... ohhhh yea! This car drives amazing. I bought it with 59k on it a year and a half ago and now it has 72k. It feels like it will be good for another 100k. The only problem I have had with it was a failed catalytic converter, which was still under warranty. You will not find a better car for the money. Great performance and good gas mileage...I get just over 30 mpg on the highway and 25 in the city and the car takes regular 89 octane gas! If you want a sports car that is still somewhat practical, this car is perfect.


Favorite Features

Definitely get the Harmon Kardon sound system and the trip computer. This is the smoothest manual transmission I have ever driven.


Suggested Improvements

What's up with the cup holders!? Germans apparently have never heard of soda cans or coffee cups.

Review

The 328 IS is probably one of the best series 3 ever built by BMW. The engine is very responsive, powerful and yet quiet. Gas consumption is outstanding. I actually make 32 m/g on highway and 26 on city traffic. The interior is very confortable and luxurious. Needless to say the 328 is very well built with lots of attention to details. Mechanically the 328 is as good as it gets.


Favorite Features

Powerful engine, gas mileage, elegant exterior and interior design. The trip-computer is a plus.


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

After years of ownership I can only praise BMW 328 IS. The outstanding quality and overal reliability of this car makes me want to keep it forever. It's proven to be a fun car to drive, and remarquably safe in difficult or unexpected driving situations. And the looks? Oh...after 6 years it still turn heads on the road. Classy and contemporary! The acceleration is fantastic and fuel economy unbelievable. The interior is roomy, quite and luxurious. The sport package it's a plus in this car.


Suggested Improvements

Acceleration, road performance, fuel economy, interior.
