2013 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I fell for the mass marketing and silly editor reviews on this car. You're supposed to say it's a good car because that's what BMW has been pushing so hard for a long time. The truth is, it's a very weak-engined plain & boring car. Not only does my V-6 Accord have tons more power and better MPG's, but it doesn't need premium gas. BMW feels like it's the size of a boat in the parking lot, and the ride is so firm and rattling that you should not call it a luxury car. The aged interior looks like it was never changed from the 3-series I always saw in the late 90's. I saw a review that said Hyundai's now look nicer inside than BMW's.


Favorite Features

On this 328 coupe, I have the auto trans. The feel of the engine and trans would be ok, but the huge lack of power makes it worthless. Engine does feel very durable like it will last a long time. I like the RWD better than my Accord's FWD on big open roads. Anywhere I actually drive daily though, the car feels clumsy and awkwardly larger than it looks. Mainly when turning at speeds under 35mph. Exterior design is great on the front and back. However, the side looks like the door/body doesn't flow or fit into place well and the car has huge gaps in many of the panels similar to cars costing around $15,000. The 4-series finally fixed that problem.


Suggested Improvements

Even though the solid engine feels like it will last a long time, nothing else on the car does. BMW's need a lot of repairs regularly. This seems to occur shortly after the warranty is up as my friends and I have experienced on our BMW's and tons of reviews confirm. Even though other German cars are not known for being too durable over time, BMW can at least try to reach their level. Please make the interior look like it comes from a new car.

2013 BMW 3 Series Coupe 328i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The 2013 BMW 328i is a great car. Excellent to drive earning the "ultimate driving machine" statement. With the M package you receive outstanding upgrades my favorite is the 19" BMW wheels. The GPS however is very, very poor. The Garmin GPS on my wife's iPhone outperforms the GPS in this BMW product. BMW customer service was no help whatsoever. Test it first before buying to ensure you are OK with the GPS. Comparing this car to the C250 and Audi A4 was an easy decision due to the performance, handling, exterior design and interior comfort (my wife loves the seats). Had I tested the GPS I would not have purchased the upgrade.


Favorite Features

Performance, handling, exterior and interior design, comfort, build quality and hopefully reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Definitely need to improve the GPS system. It is very, very poor at best compared to Garmin and many others.

2013 BMW 3 Series Coupe 335i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have owned this car for 6 months and have had no problems. The x drive works great in the snow. The car is amazing. Handling and acceleration are the best. Would buy a second one. Def. recommended. Winter tires are a little noisy.

Review

This summer I ordered my 328 exactly they way I wanted it and waited for two months for it to arrive. My steering wheel had a vibration between 40mph and 60mph and at first thought the tires were breaking in. Sent to the dealer after a few weeks and the loaner they gave me had the same problem but WORSE!!! I've since discovered that BMW was made aware of a "potential" steering wheel vibration between the speeds of 40mph to 60mph in February 2012. Sold me my 328 without testing it and traded my 328 convertible, which I would have kept if I'd known the new sedan had this problem. I'm in the process of returning the vehicle. Trying to work out a deal to buy a 5 series now.


Favorite Features

The new upgraded interior - all the options you can order.


Suggested Improvements

Buyer Beware: I've discovered on a BMW blog that there are a lot of other people around the country experiencing the steering wheel vibration. TEST the car that you're about the buy at those speeds. They have no fix at this time.
