2009 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Well, it's now almost 2 full seasons of winter later, 2 oil changes - and this car is as responsive as my first drive with it.. maybe even more so as the CDV issue seems to have disappeared after the "break-in" period. Had a couple issues with the tire-pressure-monitor system going off when winter rolled through; nothing that a trip to the dealership couldn't resolve. Started noticing various things "creaking" such as the drivers seat (when applying mid/upper back pressure) and the center console elbow rest. Also, the rear-window dot matrix makes it impossible to get a nice uniform tint. If you can look past these, then IMO, this is still the absolute best luxury AWD coupe on the road.


Best Features

I haven't noticed any "new" features since my initial reviews - but I did add the OEM M3 lip spoiler to my trunk lid, along with a 35/20% tint job. Now my car is very, very close to my idea of the perfect all-season daily driver.


Worst Features

Please do something about the dot matrix on the rear window - or simply offer an option for a factory installed rear window tint. This might be a stretch, but how about providing RFTs as part of the 4-year covered warranty? Then your customers would have ultimate peace of mind.

2009 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

...7 light years. I have owned 7 Subarus, two Audi Quattros, and thought they could not be beaten. I was wrong. The handling, overall performance, and especially the sport seats (comfort level) exceeds all the aforementioned autos. I did option for the automatic with sport pkg. and the letdown on acel. is barely noticeable. Due in part to the reworked tranny, excellent response and shiftability...No need to tell you how much fun it is to drive, handles like a dream, the rap on runflats have not been a factor yet, suspension takes care of that...Oh what a feeling, and it is not, a toyota...Fit, finish,and interior are exceptional...I love my xDrive Coupe.


Best Features

The Coupe just sitting there looks awesome with the 18" wheels. The sport seats: lumbar support, lateral adjustable bolsters, and thigh extension are the greatest thing going...


Worst Features

Can't think of anything at the moment. Although some complain it is a little "pricey", I say what do you expect for the best entry level sport sedan/coupe?

Review

The styling of this car sets it apart from all others in its class. This is our second BMW and I'm a hard sell for import cars. BMW gets greedy with there options they are priced to high and there is no such thing as a base model on the lot.


Best Features

Horse power and handling. I am 6'5" tall and there is a lot of head room.


Worst Features

Go back to normal tires and put a power out let upfront in the dash.

Review

This car is incredible. It is exactly what was advertised. "The ultimate driving machine". It is smooth and responsive. I have yet to find a curvy two lane road that this car didn't love. I have driven a lot of nice cars, but this is in a class all alone.


Best Features

Firm steering and just the "seat of your pants" feel. The all wheel drive is incredible!!! The coupe is the best looking car on the road. Sirius Radio and bluetooth is great!


Worst Features

Not a fan of the run flat tires. A bit rough and loud. Too much road noise, but feel of the car over all makes up for it.

Review

Driving in about 4 inches of unpaved snow, slush and ice: In straight lines it accelerates and stops under complete control. To test out the traction around corners, I took a couple turns at relatively unsafe speeds, close to 15 MPH. The DTS flickered and appeared to do something, but it definitely felt like I drifted out of my lane. During sensible speeds, drifting was not an issue. Slight hesitance may be confused with skidding, but its actually DTS doing its thing to keep you on your intended path. X-drive is very capable. However, I honestly feel Subaru sets the bar when it comes to AWD technology. Basically if you're looking for a luxury AWD coupé, look no further.


Best Features

I really like how the windows slightly open/close when entry/exit from the vehicle, ensuring a snug window-frame to frame-of-car contact. Nice touch! You can really get a feel for the quality of build just by closing the heavy trunk lid. Seriously. Open and close one.


Worst Features

RFTs are pretty loud, please make these an option. Standard security system! BTW, the iDrive is a very unnecessary feature.. only get it if you drive automatic :) The iPod integration works wonderfully by itself. FYI, keep doors unlocked when fueling, else the fuel gun may kick prematurely
