2008 BMW 3 Series 328xi 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Bought a 328xi sport coupe after previously owning 2 Audi TTs. The worst feature is the run flat tires. Ride is very harsh and the $300+ to replace is outrageous. Ruined one in the first 300 miles on an Interstate pothole. Had to drive 150 miles @ 50 MPH. At least it lasted more than the advertised 50 mi. The odometer and speedometer are 6-7% high (that's worth about $400 on a 30,000 mile lease). Poor design 12V port in center storage area is in a position that won't allow the lid to close when any of my eqpt plugs are inserted. Gas mileage is poor. Lucky to get 18 MPG even on Interstate. TT with DSG got >25 MPG, weighed about the same and was quicker. 328 automatic is crude compared to Audi.
Excellent handling. Sharp looking.
Ditch run flats (reliability rating based on run-flats), improve interior ergonometrics. Make dual clutch automatic available.
