Almost perfect, but ...
By mwomack11 on


2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Great car, my first BMW, but glaring points when compared to comparable and less comparable sedans.
1. Cup holders are awful! This is a nut that everyone else cracked a decade ago and in the 3 series the front seat cup holders are poorly placed and of limited use.
2. Car alarm. Should be standard, not an option.
3. Key fob makes it too easy to push the trunk button when removing from ignition.

Negatives are done, here's the positives. I've owned 5 different cars over the last 10 years, SUV to sportster convertible. I've never seen a perfect car. The BMW 3 series is about as close as I think you can get for this size sedan. Great ride, engine, fun, MPG, luxury, etc. Very happy with my car!

Best Features

Quiet, sporty, refined. Hands free and Navi. Really good MPG compared to others in the same luxury segment.

Worst Features

Lousy cup holders. Really? No alarm. BMW options you to death.
