Great car, fun to drive, best AWD
By Mikhail on
2008 BMW 3 Series 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I admit the mileage is not the best - but I have 30+ on a highway @ 75 mph or 23-25 mpg @ 100 mph. AWD is extremely good - can so easily go through 10 inches of snow on the parking lot or 5 inches snow uphill to ski areas. Very comfortable car especially comparing to new Subarus, Toyotas and Nissans. 4 times made 1200 mi in one day stopping only for refuel and hardly had any back pain where as Subaru imp-za made me sick after 700 mi. Overall excellent car, very impressed! Change of razor-bladed runflat tire for me was 286$.
Great performance (though should've take 335!), very quite even @ 130 mph, excellent AWD, good mph (25+ mixed, 30+ highways) if driving not hard. Love DS selection on 6-steptronic for hard sport and manual for easy driving. Seats heat up in seconds - very good in winter.
With polarized sun glasses can not see radio screen! Stupid. Manual adjustment of steering wheel (on the car for 40+k$). Run flat became little noisy after 25K mi and very expensive to change (though cheap to repair ~ 70$ if a simple nail).
