2008 BMW 3 Series 328xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
No regrets in choosing the sweet sounding naturally aspirated I6 over the turbo - plenty of acceleration throughout the power band matched to exceptional road feel. The GM 6-speed transmission is not as refined as the ZF, but still head and shoulders over any other auto that I have owned. DS mode and paddles provide plenty of flexibility and fun. AWD is sure-footed in rain and snow, and the xi is the perfect match for urban/suburban roads. 8K well-spent in options (ZPP, ZSP, Xenon, CA, iPod, Heated Seats, Metallic Paint). Phenomenal build quality with no issues to date - just a smile every minute behind the wheel!
Exterior and interior design, steering and handling. Sport seats and steering wheel. Kidney grill, Comfort Access and LED puddle lamps. Xenons and corona rings. Bluetooth for iPhone and USB for iPod connectivity.
Two-line radio/phone/iPod display is great, however is difficult to read with polarized glasses.
