Best ride I've owned
By Jeffy347 on


1997 BMW 3 Series 328is 2dr Coupe


Bought this car knowing I would be
driving a ton. Also, a bit of a
rebound from previous marriage. It is
an investment that has paid great
dividends to my state of mind. No
offense to my counselor - but for the
same price, this vehicle offers similar
solace :-) Bought with 99k,Trouble
free to 107k in two months. I am
concerned with a sluggish passenger
window - auto up feature is sometimes
sporadic - also passenger power lock
has quit. I am sure it is a
quick fix though. And smaller a price
for sure than the 95 Audi 90 I owned
this time last year. I am betting the
Bimmer will not disappoint as much as
that money pit! Long story short BMW

Best Features

Sliding into 2nd gear and goosing it to 60mph while merging at on ramps. Heated seats, Power everything, Powerful and smooth I-6. GREAT 5 speed tranny. Style points - design that defies age .

Worst Features

Window and lock electrics. Lower profile tires - I guess I could get a newer one. Stock stereo lacks much in balance and depth of sound. Engine takes 7 quarts of oil! Full synthetic will run $50 + even for the do it your selfer. But if that is the secret to the engine runnin forever
