Excellent choice, but a few chinks in the armor...

2007 BMW 3 Series 328i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
Absolutely gorgeous car, BMW really outdid themselves on the styling. Power is outstanding, feels far faster then the 300 hp rating would suggest, but the off-the-line throttle response could be more linear and not so "right now". The seatbelt assisting device is a nice idea but most of the time the seatbelt slips off the device and I have to reach back for the belt anyway. The retracting cupholders are straight out of 1990 and are extremely flimsy. I-Drive isn't so bad once you get used to it. Adaptive cruise control went out and transmission developed a leak at 40K but thankfully both were covered under warranty. Had the car for 6 months and am still discovering new gadgets and features!
Favorite Features
Best part is that twin-turbo I-6 engine. 0-60 in under 5 seconds, sounds great in the process and the transmission upshifts with military precision. It'll still push you back in the seat when you boot the throttle at 110, or so I've read... (wink wink). The whole drivetrain is as smooth as Jack Daniels and actually achieves very decent gas mileage considering the available power. One of the best looking BMWs ever, they're gonna have a tough time topping this one when the new 3-series coupe bodystyle is redesigned for '14.
Suggested Improvements
Parts and service are very expensive, might want to consider an extended warranty and/or have it thoroughly checked out by a certified mechanic if you succumb. Paint shouldn't be peeling off the steering wheel spokes after only a few years (or ever, actually), and cupholders shouldn't feel so fragile that you're scared to use them. Starting the car shouldn't be a 3-step process (place "key" in slot, push "start" button and apply brakes). Oh, and make the inside rear view mirror as part of the "memory" process. The ability to run on 87 octane gas would be nice too instead of having to use the more expensive 91-93 octane.
