1999 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan


Review

I've been driving this thing for 3 years now and I don't plan to switch! It's easy to take this car for granted until you've driven something else. BMW's handling is amazing.. it gives me so much confidence on the road. You get an excellent feel for the road and the steering is firm. Handles great in the dry but I've had some problems in the wet. Then again, my tires were old. Although this car is pretty quick, it doesn't have as much power as I'd like. Next car will be more performance oriented (Probably an M3). It's almost 2005 and this car is still better than most cars on the streets. Excellent ballance of performance, comfort, and functionaly


Favorite Features

Handling, acceleration, reliability, fuel economy, sexy fog lights


Suggested Improvements

In-dash 6 CD changer, standard CD player, stronger premium sound system

Review

Last 22k miles have been great. Only issues have been expensive dealer maintenance. I solved that with an independant shop who does the work for half the price. Also, have had all four window regulators replaced under CPO warranty ($50 ded.). Car still drives like a dream. Fast, fun, near flawless, stellar gas mileage. Great handling in snow with Blizzacks. Hope to keep it 300k miles!


Favorite Features

Engine, chassis, batman steering wheel, sport package, mood lighting at night, handling, performance.


Suggested Improvements

Rear seat room, dealer maintenace costs, stereo. Personnally, added clutch stop, sub, CAI and Dinan chip (well worth it!). Want to add -- tigher suspesion, 18" wheels, supercharger. Really, car is near perfect and needs nothing. Highly recommended and the price is now half of what I paid!

Review

Here's an update since my last posting 17k miles ago. I discovered my independent BMW mechanic is a liar,(I followed up on his work). I don't trust dealers either. I have learned to do all maintenance myself. I still have the airbag light on, but will be replacing my seat belt tensioners/buckle and resetting airbag light, apparently this is a common problem to air bag lights coming on. Here is what I have done to the car so far at 100k miles, all done by myself. Replaced all 4 oxygen sensors. Changed out the Automatic transmission lifetime oil with the same,


Favorite Features

car now shifts like it was new! Spark plugs, by the way use the NGK’s only! Bosch makes great O2 sensors, but not spark plugs. Brakes/Rotors/Pads. Tires. Replaced both drive belts. Of course oil changes every 3-5k miles and filters. Recharged My A/C.


Suggested Improvements

Extra info: Engine light came on, but went away after I replaced the O2 sensors. If you do go to the dealer or shop, make sure they replace those bottom O2 sensors. Jimbo
