BMW Seasonal Vehicle At Best

2016 BMW 3 Series 328i

The 3 series handles poorly in heavy rain, snow and ice. The rear tires wear down quickly and are very expensive. You are not able to rotate tires which makes heavy use expensive. Many of the Bluetooth features offered by BMW as extra cost accessories are not compatible with this model, this is very frustrating considering the newer models themselves have very few automobile design changes and do not encouragement me purchase a newer vehicle to take advantage of the Bluetooth options. Aside from the above disappointments the BMW is a great spring and summer driving vehicle. The speed and comfort are superior to other autos in its class.

2016 BMW 3 series- and excellent vehicle.

2016 BMW 3 Series

I love my BMW 320i. It simply drives excellent. It is not a performance car with 0-60 being in the 7 second range. However the vehicle takes corners like a true sports car and is a pleasure to drive. The infotainment system is easy to use and looks flush with the lines. The car looks great on the exterior with smooth lines running across the hood giving it a mean appearance. The interior is just as great. Comfortable seats and plenty of space for a relatively small car. Fuel economy is also a huge bonus, with roughly 35 mpg on the highway. I have 28, 000 miles on the vehicle and no problems thus far.

Ultimate Driving Machine!

2016 BMW 3 Series 328i

The BMW 3 series performance and reliability in my opinion is like no other. After, an auto accident left me with back pain from several spinal fusion surgeries I was in search of a vehicle that had a sport drivers seat for added comfort and features. I found exactly that with the BMW 3 series. The seat offers side hugging lumbar support and a leg support extension (my favorite part). I haven't experienced any problems with my 3 series unless you count wanting to drive all the time. It is truly the ultimate driving machine.
