6th BMW I've owned. Also both the newest model year I've bought (2y/o at time of purchase) as well as the first 4-cylinder. Didn't realize that until after I bought it, as it's quicker & faster than the 09 six-cylinder 328i I still own! Love the exterior lines & interior updates. Has a light car feel (like a Lexus), but somehow that traditional "bolted to the road" BMW handling at the same time. Gas mileage is great. Interior just beautiful. Love the updated software & dash screen/functions. A true 3-Series with everything that makes it a BMW. What I did NOT like, and fortunately was able to disable quickly & easily, was the Efficiency Mode that shuts off the engine while stopped. Too weird for me. Otherwise, love this car!
Definitely, The Ultimate Driving Machine

Great driving car and super versatile. It's got great power so I never feel like going to get run down, traction control is outstanding so slippery corners aren't a worry, the back seats are comfortable enough for 2 adults, it's excellent for zipping around big cities and for long fun drives, it gets excellent highway gas mileage, sporty and aggressive yet totally classy and overall a dream to drive.

This is my first BMW and it's definitely the ultimate driving machine. The handling is precise and power is quite sufficient for commuting and leisure driving in the mountains. It's so fun to drive, I actually enjoy commuting to work everyday.
It has plenty of room for passengers, but only for short trips.
The interior is simple but very ergonomic. Everything is exactly where it needs to be and intuitive. I only wish there was more storage space in the center console and glovebox. However the amount provided is certainly ample.
Overall I am very happy with my decision to buy a BMW, and I'm not sure I'd want to own anything else.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
