2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought as CPO with 29k miles. Live in Vermont - snow/ice normal here. Now has 97k miles. Haven't fixed anything!! Regular dealer service (oil, inspections). Changed spark plugs at 95k. Best car with AWD I have ever driven - sooo safe! Fast, great breaking, superb handling. I'd recommend buying on of these new, or CPO with 30k or less miles.


Favorite Features

Power, engine sound during hard acceleration, HANDLING, speaker package (2 subs under seats), blinker one touch feature, seat adjustment (both front seats) - I'm tall, wife is short - fits both of use perfectly. Electronic monitors very good. Look for car externally - beautiful car! Interior sleek, leather and wood mix well matched - quality.


Suggested Improvements

Tech! Needs bluetooth audio streaming, and better on-dash phone controls. Existing system work ok, but programming names into bluetooth difficult. Get rid of runflats! Way to expensive - have Toyo Proxes4plus on the car now - performance and snow safety easily as good/better than runflats. Put oil dipstick under the hood (what if elec. monitor fails?).

Review

Just spent a bundle fixing an oil leak caused by a PLASTIC valve cover that cracked. This is apparently common for these models after 60K. Mine had 76K and was regularly serviced at the dealer. In my case, oil leaked onto the ignition coils, causing the engine to misfire. Unbelievable that the 'ultimate driving machine' uses plastic on a part that is subject to such heat.


Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability - stop using plastic engine parts.

Review

Great car no serious trouble. Very fun to drive and very comfortable! Only thing is that the interior seems to scratch very easily. Other than that the car is great. I would buy another bmw

Review

I have rationalized not getting a 3 series since test driving one before purchasing a TL a number of years ago. Instantly after driving the TL and 3 back to back I knew the 3 was a better car but I feared long term reliability. The TL didn't last long and was traded off and years went by before finding a clean 328xi auto with 88k on the odometer. I recognize that it will be far more expensive to repair than used accords that I was comparing but once you drive one it all seems worth it. These are solidly built cars not overly contaminated with gadgets or cup holders. One really starts to enjoy driving, which I haven't done for many years. The more you DIY the feasible owning seems.


Favorite Features

The "Driving Experience". Looks. The way the car holds the line. Perfectly balanced, leather interior is great gauges are simple, professional radio is adequate.


Suggested Improvements

Automatic tranny is confused, given the chance I would have bought a manual rear wheel drive. No run flats and a spare would be something I would personally prefer.
