It's amazing - but here are some issues.
By no alias on


1996 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


Sport package seats are very stiff and
also extremely supportive. You won't
want to take this on a 3+ hour trip,
but it's a blast getting to work each
day! Also, remarkable in the snow with

The car is thought out very well, but
the electric "glitches" can drive you
nuts. Check engine light is aways on -
but the performance exhaust and intake
is probably my fault... Brake light
indicator pops up from time to time,
which I hear is a common issue.
Everyone wants to race you from the
stoplights - what's up with that!?!

I have had only one repair in the past
two years, and it was about $200.

Best Features

Amazing handling, braking and acceleration in all conditions. On-board computer is fun to mess with - especially on long trips.

Worst Features

Fix the electrical issues! The stereo is made by Alpine - but you'd never know it... it's quite marginal.
