The ultimate luxury sleeper on a budget..
Headlight blew, replaced all bulbs in rear lights as they looked abit corroded.
Haven't taken car for full service yet, as only have owned for 2 months. Needs tyres.
This is my second BMW. My previous car was an e30 325i convertible, and after much deliberation I traded in on this 328i Coupe. I have nothing, but praise for the car. Admittedly, it has a full bmw service history, and one previous owner, but it is just fabulous.
The acceleration for a stock car is amazing, rivalling many V8's a turbo cars. The vanos system is brilliant for providing low down torque, and then it just keeps pulling to the redline...! It handles quite well, with a good blend of softer comfort and stiffness for the twisty stuff. Interior perfectly designed for me, with good seat positioning (could do with more tilt/reach adjustment on steering wheel), and good access into rear seats. Boot/trunk is very big. Fantastic fuel economy, which continues to stun especially with rising fuel costs, and reliable electrics inside the cabin - despite remote locking I use the key as when you hold in lock position, it automatically closes windows and sunroof! which is a nifty feature...
Leather on drivers seat is beginning to wear, but other seats the leather is like new, completely unblemished.
Overall, this is the most satisfying of cars I have ever owned (this is my 6th car in my relatively short driving history), and surprisingly affordable to run for a University/College student's budget. I would highly recommend this model, if you can find a good straight version with a full service history.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
