2007 BMW 3 Series 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I have had this car for about 3 weeks. I recently turned in an 03 Benz E500 after a 4 year relationship. Shopping for a new Benz, I decided to finally drive the other German sedans. Well I have to say, the fun factor pins this car off the scale. After 5 minutes I was sold. No contest in driveability and ride dynamics. The small BMW gives up a modest amount of power and torque to the Benz, but more than makes up for that in driveability. I find myself looking for an excuse to drive! Never felt that way in the Benz. I could have gone for the 335, but the 328 was plenty for me, in addition to getting a bit more mileage and probably saving me some tickets.
Ride, comfort and handling, with the sport package. Steptronic, bluetooth, but mostly ROAD FEEL.
A modest power increase. Center mounted cupholders. A lot more interior storage.
