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


This car replaces a 2008 328i. It has the same engine and BASIC design. They have added 17 inch wheels (about time) and made the lights and body a little more sporty. They have decreased the power hook ups. They removed the ash tray and cigar lighter from the dash. The only power hook up is now in the console. Bad idea. This is the days of pc's, PDAs and portable GPS. They all need power! The steering seems to be a little looser, more play in the wheel etc than my 2008 model. Not sure if this is just my imagination or not. They decreased the number of speakers. The sound is a little thinner.

Best Features

I like the new wheels and body styling. The car still handles great and drives like a dream

Worst Features

Add power outlets. Make steering column retract automatically. Improve stereo sound

there is additional power under the dash over the passenger left knee. It took me about 6 months to figure that out.
