I show you in some videos how to see if a car has been in an accident, how to make a great buy on a car with a bad Carfax, or why I wouldn't personally buy a car even if it has favorable reviews. The steering, handling, and ride feel exactly as good as a 328i with a trunk. Car has been into a very, very good independent shop three times for extended period. Fit and finish are excellent, but the cabin is snug. The recall began March 9, 2018. A more thorough refresh is expected for 2011, but the 2010 3-Series still owns its segment: four-seat sports compacts.
A stronger engine improves acceleration and still manages good fuel economy, but seat revisions reduced comfort. It really looks good, especially finished in Estoril Blue as our car was. The recall began June 18, 2018. The steering is also a huge plus, so tight and responsive. Engine-whipping is done by a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic. For a 4 cylinder, it sounds quite nice when pushed.
This is my wife's car so I am constantly fielding these repairs. After a month of driving this car I love it and can't imagine selling it unless it simply falls apart. The flap is opened by a vacuum actuator and is closed by a spring return that uses a coil spring. The steering communicates almost telepathically with the driver at any speed, on almost any surface, and it is jarred by only the very worst pavement irregularities. In performance testing, we've clocked a 328i sedan with the manual transmission from zero to 60 mph in 6. The rear seats are adequately roomy for adults on shorter trips, but taller passengers will complain that their heads are crammed into the roof. The sedan is handsome and the coupe is beautiful from nose to tail, with an athletic but graceful stance.
Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. On standard X3 models the body side wheel arch and rocker arm trim panels are made of flexible, damage-resistant black surfaces. If anything, the 3-Series is more attractive as a wagon; it looks purposeful, elegant, and Euro-cool, especially with the M Sport package on our tester wheels, aero kit, sport seats, steering wheel. The Climate package adds heated front seats and steering wheel, retractable headlight washers and fold-down rear seats though the latter are unavailable in the convertible. We loved the hard top convertible but needed a little more room. If you think any of this is a let down, you are quite wrong.
The stability control system integrates several features designed to improve braking performance, such as periodically wiping the brake rotors dry when the windshield wipers are in use and automatically snugging the pads to the rotors when the driver abruptly lifts off the throttle. These are nearly impossible to retrofit. It's worth noting that no body panels are shared between the coupe and convertible two-doors and the sedan and station wagon four-door models. In Florida Adaptive won't be noticed other than playing on ramps. Stiff ride with run flat tires. But I still don't understand why this car is available in Europe with over 50 drivetrain combinations, and we only get 2! With 3 modes - Sport, Comfort and Eco Pro - you have control over the suspension, steering, engine, and transmission responses at the touch of a button. Clever seatbelt extenders eliminate the awkward reach in the coupe, and despite admirable solidity, the long doors avoid being too heavy or unwieldy.
All but the wagon are available as the rear-drive 335i, while the sedan and coupe can be had in 335i xDrive form. Primary Use: Commuting to work This Car Made Me A Loyal Bmw Customer! I think a design defect. The head has been sent to a machine shop where it will be dipped for cleaning. It may just be me, but the 328i just feels more balanced than the 335i. In addition to its more powerful engine, the 335i adds 17-inch wheels, xenon headlights and power front seats with driver memory.
A stronger engine improves acceleration and still manages good fuel economy, but seat revisions reduced comfort. Otherwise it's a great car with some extra coding. The car turns so many heads when its clean and even when dirty. What am I talking about, the guy didn't even have a computer at his desk. Months later check engine light on again.
But I would never buy it new. Steering feel is altered by the amount of wheel input and speed. The sedan is handsome and the coupe is beautiful from nose to tail, with an athletic but graceful stance. All-in-all - everything you need from the car: power, capacity, handling. .
