2009 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Got rid of my 09 BMW 3 series with X drive. I wont miss the run flat tires, or nightmare suspension. The suspension bottoms out on bumpy New England roads and is not worthy of such a high price tag. The adaptive transmission lacks the response you would expect from a sports car. The radio is dissapointing. Filling the car with gas would cause a vacume and not allow me to fill up all the way. The dealer's response to the above was oh well that's just the way it is. Got a G37x and love it so far. Much more car for the money. Now that's a driving machione

Interesting review. I'm considering a pre-owned 2009 328xi and 2009 G37x. The price point for both cars is very similar but BMW's certified warranty covers a lot of stuff. And oh, I'm in New England too. Did the 328xi give you a lot of maintenance issues?
