surprisingly good for what is essentially an entry-level, detuned 328i

2013 BMW 3 Series 320i 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
Review
it came down to the audi A4 quattro and this car. i almost got the audi, save for reliability issues that i had heard about. at first, i wasn't that warm to the idea of the 320i, being that it was a detuned, stripped-down 328i. but after a test drive, i was reasonably impressed and decided to go that route. handling is nimble, car is quick enough, and it handles like a BMW, though softer than my old manual-transmission E46 325ci. mine is a base model with basically only the moonroof and the power front seats with memory as the only options. stripped-down and basic, but that's all i needed for a commute that was four miles to/from work each way with no freeways.
Favorite Features
the bluetooth feature with google maps is amazing. turn on bluetooth with your iphone, and google maps instructions go through the speakers.
Suggested Improvements
the start/stop feature stinks. it's herky/jerky and most of the time i disable it. ironically, it's most annoying in stop/go traffic, which is where you would imagine that you would want to use it the most. the bluetooth connection is a little dicey at times, and sometimes i get a lot of noise on the other side (so i am told by the other caller). other times, it's flawless. my car already once exhibited screeching sound when the AC belt is loose. the dealer needs to take care of this. gas mileage is a lot worse in the city than it is on the highway. i would say that i probably get very low 20s and sometimes high teens in the city. i can get well over 30 on the freeway.
