2009 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


This car is very comfortable (I'm 6ft 2in), feels solid and inspires confidence. I haven't driven it much @ high speeds, mainly around town. I wanted a 6sp manual, but would have had to order it from the factory, so I got auto which came with sport drive & paddle shifters, which I enjoy. I'm only getting about 15 mpg in city driving altho I usually keep transmission in reg drive. I have the sport seats which give great lateral support & are very comfortable. Only issue is with the run-flat tires; I tested the cold tire pressure & one of the front tires was @ 40 psi; mfg recommends 32 psi front, but when I let out air to get to 32 psi in the tire, I got a low pressure warning per the TPM.

Best Features

sport seats, satellite radio, optional sport drive & paddle shifting

Worst Features

wider trunk opening (for golf clubs), refinement in either the run flat tires or the tire pressure monitor
