The 2012 BMW 328i was my first BMW. I chose to buy the BMW based on the reputation for reliability rather than the name. On my first trip to the dealership, I realized that BMWs no longer has the deep engine sounds I had come to associate with them, and they also have the annoying auto start/stop feature that is set to on by default in order to meet new emissions standards. I did the research online and had actually decided on a 335i, but surprisingly, it wasn't available in my requisite black/black trim at any of the dealerships near me. The salesman convinced me to test drive a 328i instead, and I was surprised at the quick acceleration of the four-cylinder engine. I figured I could live with the fact that it was smaller than my normal car (Acura TL was the last), but I was wrong. Th... (more)
Story
Yes, it was fun going to Yosemite using this car. It was good at accelerating and braking.
Pros
It is far one of the most fun cars to drive. Automatic means that no need to stick shift.
Cons
It is difficult to buy a good used 3-series without a lot of miles on them if you want to make it affordable. The maintenance on a 3-series (or for that matter the 5, 7 series) is frightening. It could easily cost you 3-4k a year, if not more. Many insurance companies will up your premium unless you get the four-door sedan.

There’s a reason BMW tags its most famous model using the phrase "the ultimate driving machine." Along with a couple of other BMW models, the 2012 3 Series is among the best performance vehicles in the class. Handling is a pleasant balance of sportiness and comfort, though the base engine is underpowered. However, there are several upgrades that provide more muscle. Matching this impressive performance is the 3 Series' interior which features premium materials to provide an air of elegance. It’s short on a rear-view camera and some other common standard features, but the included entertainment system is one of the best of any brand. The BMW 3 Series has been an excellent overall car for decades, and that still rings true for the 2012 model.
Story
One great story was speeding on the Autobahn. No speed limits and traffic made for a fun ride.
Pros
The number one pro for me is the cost. The BMW 3 Series comes in three body styles: sedan, Sports Wagon, and Gran Turismo. The base sedan 3 Series (known as the 320i) starts at $33,450. That MSRP is about average for the class. It’s a little cheaper than the highly-ranked Audi A4 which starts at $34,900. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class retails for $39,500, while the BMW 4 Series comes in at $41,950. Moving up to higher trims means adding a more powerful engine: these include the 330i ($38,750) and the 340i ($47,900). The 3 Series is also available in diesel and hybrid versions which start at $40... (more)
Cons
The cargo space for me was the biggest con about the vehicle. The BMW 3 Series sedan offers 13 cubic feet of cargo space which is about average for the class. That's certainly enough for a few golf bags, suitcases, or shopping bags. This is also the exact amount of space offered in the Audi A4 and the BMW 4 Series convertible. Other 4 Series models have more space: the standard coupe has 15.7 cubic feet and Gran Coupe models have 17 cubic feet. The Mercedes C-Class has the least amount of space in the bunch: 12.6 cubic feet. Shoppers who want greater everyday utility will want to consider ... (more)
