This is my second BMW, and I am even more impressed. This car is solid and well built, handles amazingly, has great power and is fun to drive. It's also a great looking car. I've owned this car for about six months and put about 10,000 miles on it. My only complaint is with the voice recognition system - it's pretty bad. It rarely understands commands the first time, (or second or third). It needs a Siri.
The 6 speed automatic on this model is not very good. The engine revs up ridiculously high before switching gears, which only worsens the already terrible fuel economy. I'm only averaging 17.5mpg COMINED city/highway. I'd expect that from something like an M6, but not a lowly 328i. If looking for a 328 I HIGHLY recommend a newer model that has an 8 speed automatic. I can't stress enough the awful fuel economy of this vehicle. If I could sell it back for near what I paid I would and buy a newer model instead.
This is my first sedan after 20 years of driving a mom mobile of some sort. It handles wonderfully. It has plenty of space and the turbo engine is fantastic for accelerating when I need to. I love the roomy trunk and four doors for passengers. It's a great entry into the luxury class of cars. The interior is just beautiful. I have the tan interior and it's so bright and happy. My only complaints would be that the extensive electronics are difficult to get used to. I also don't like that to unlock all doors without the key from the driver's side, there's a button in the middle of the dashboard, not on the door. It's often cumbersome.
