2016 BMW 4 Series 435i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

The engine in my 2016 BMW 435i literally blew-up and now BMW is refusing to honor the warranty. The repair shop claims they found water spots in the air intake plenum. They claim that due to recent heavy rains and driving through "a puddle" 5 weeks earlier caused a piston connecting rod to break through the side of the engine block! This is even though the car ran perfectly for the entire 5 week period and 2500 miles after the rain event without even the slightest vibration. What they couldn't explain, at all, was how enough water made it past the air cleaner without getting the air cleaner wet or damaged! The rain event did short a couple electronic systems as error codes indicated and put the car into a "limp-home" mode, but were simply cleared and reset after I had them checked. Interestingly, the service advisor and a service manager kept aggressively encouraging me to "just file a claim with your insurance carrier" and that "people have been doing it there all the time"! It seemed like a "go-to" line for these guys even though any competent mechanic would conclude that this engine did not "blow" due to water damage! I checked with a few! It has been my experience here that BMW, through their authorized representatives, will do anything possible to avoid responsibility in honoring their warranty including encouraging their customers to commit insurance fraud. At least this was the "feeling" I was left with after my conversations with the service staff at the particular BMW dealer in Long Beach, California.

2016 BMW 4 Series 435i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Definitely go for the x-Drive all wheel drive option, even in Southern states, as the almost .5 second 0-60 improvement over the rear-wheel drive model is more than worth it. Plus the all wheel drive provides you with the best winter driving traction and control that you can get.

2016 BMW 4 Series 435i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Made extremely well. The rear wheel drive has fantastic handling; car flat with no lean on curves. Seats are very comfortable on a long trip and have good support. Comfort Mode drives great, Sport Mode is very high performance. Electronics are very effective and intuitive. Trunk is narrow and small.

2016 BMW 4 Series 428i xDrive SULEV 2dr Coupe AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

The handling of my 428iX is superb. In dry conditions you can point and go. In wet it is exceptional. Four modes of driving make this car fun to drive and if necessary, economical. Engine must be kept in higher RPM to enjoy the power. Hesitant off the line for a brief second then hold on. Paddle shifters make it fun to drive in sharp turns, etc. Heads up display is excellent. Voice commands are excellent both in radio, phone and navigation. 33mpg on the highway at 65mph. Can run on 89 octane if necessary. The ultimate driving machine.

2016 BMW 4 Series 428i SULEV 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

Fun to drive. Hugs the road in comfort mode and sports mode is even more fun. Love the sport seats--the extension makes it so comfortable for my long legs. The electronics aren't that intuitive--I'm learning but all the dealers have "BMW Geniuses" on staff to train you--I just haven't had the time yet to go in. Only disappointment is that mine doesn't have the premium package, which means I don't have keyless entry like I'm used to. Not a huge deal--just don't like having to dig for my keys all the time.
