2007 BMW 3 Series 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Just picked up my 328xi a few days ago, and I look for any excuse to run errands so I can get behind the wheel. I added the sport package, cold weather package, and the iPod adapter, and am pleased with all of my selections. This car handles like a dream - it loves to hug the curves and go fast. Very tight and responsive, and the 6 spd manual is silky-smooth. Fit and finish are great. The metallic paint is flawless.
Handling; responsiveness; fun factor; 6 spd shift; being able to take iTunes on the road with me and operate the iPod through the stereo controls; fit and finish.
If I hadn't gotten the iPod adapter, I'd be disappointed that there is no in-dash CD changer. The leatherette is fine, but it's surprising that a car in this price range doesn't include leather as a standard feature.
