Bmw analysis after a year
By BMWExpert on


1997 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


The handling of the 3 series is superb
to say the least! When driving the car
you feel every inch of the road! It's
fantastically responsive and has great
pickup and torque/horse ratio. However;
parts are very expensive and will put a
dent in your wallet. It's not the
mechanical parts that go; it's the very
unreliable electrical ones.
Unfortunately, BMW's more current cars
are overloaded with un-needed and
extremely flimsy and unreliable,
electronic components. To further
dismay, most of these components are
incredibly expensive to repair/replace
and will put a dent in your wallet.

Best Features

Tight handling, OBC, heated seats

Worst Features

Redesignining of the electrical system, removal of un-needed and over complex electrical components, adding of display on heater/ac window when unit is off.
