Needed a simple not too flashy business/ personal car and drove everything in this class. G8 was fun but future is bad. Jetta was okay but not as refined. Audi too slow. Owned a 99 328i so I decided to try 328i and not 330i as this is business car. Wow, this is a performance car with luxury and brings smiles every time I drive. Hard to do when you are replacing a Vette. Driving dynamics are still the best after all these years. BMW Straight 6 is still the best engine made on the planet. I was surprised the buying experience, price and attitude of BMW has changed. Got best deal from them which was a total surprise.
Engine, comfort of driving position, and the way it handles all type of roads and driving situations. New wet braking is great here in Florida. Auto is very responsive in manual mode when you want to race.
Worst design of power outlets ever. BMW has moved outlet from ashtray area to passenger dash area and outlet in console will not accommodate regular power cords. Cannot close while in use.
