2008 BMW 3 Series 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I just traded in my 07 Mercedes C230 sport for the 328xi sedan to have a car that gets around in our winter months. They are definitely 2 different cars. This car handles much tighter and feels stronger and more sporty. My husband is a big guy and fits so much better in the BMW. There is more space in the back seat, my 5 year old's feet really don't touch the front seat like in the mercedes. The thing I notice the most is that I can actually get in this car without hitting my side on the door strip. It's so much easier to get in and out of. Its a little higher off the ground than the mercedes.
The leather smells great. Love how it hugs the road and the push button start is pretty cool too. My favorite feature is the cooling cup holder in the console.
Needs standard power seats with memory, dimming rear and side mirrors, cup holders in a better spot so you don't have to reach. Oh and most important, more storage space in the car!
