Oh Hail The 2012 3 Series!
By pacquio78 on
2012 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
One thing I absolutely have to cover is the Performance, if your looking for a Sports Sedan for around $42,500 (The Price I Spent On My 328i) look no further than the 328i. The New 2.0L Twin-PowerTurbo has amazing responsiveness and acceleration. The styling of the exterior and interior is BANG ON! Definetly looking foward to replace my 1999 Merc ML430 for a 2012 Merc ML550 and have the 550 and 328 in my Garage.
I just tested the 328i.
Was very surprised how responsive, powerful, and refined the new 4 cylinder really is.
It is obvious a great deal of engineering detail was put into this engine as 4 cylinders are hard to make world class but I believe this one is.
It has a distinct quality sound and vibration is virtually non-existent.
I believe they likely used very fine tolerances (to minimize any vibrational effects) and highly engineered motor mounts.
Whatever the case, it is a winner.
Especially with the substantial mileage improvement.
I owned a 335 and will keep it, but I'll look for a 328i convertible to add at some point (I want them to fix the side impact rating to equal that of the sedan).
Great driving car!
