The 328i comes with the normally aspirated engine, while the 335i comes with the turbocharged engine. The 230 horses make for longer drag-strip times, the 328i crossing 60 mph in 6. All oft-used controls, especially the manual transmission shifter, are well within reach of the driver. The straight six presents more packaging challenges, but its unique performance characteristics and smoothness make it a favorite among enthusiast drivers. Turbo lag is essentially nonexistent, giving the new engine the feel of a much larger normally aspirated engine. But of Japan's native automakers, none has been so hot for so long to sock it to the men from Munich.
Above all, the 3 Series is a driver's car: accelerating, turning and stopping with remarkable agility and balance, without seriously compromising comfort or common sense. .

There were diversions, almost a bankruptcy, then a merger with Renault, and reboots of the priorities at Nissan. The optional leather is soft and thick. The driver's feet get added protection from pedals that retract during a frontal crash and a dead pedal constructed to collapse under crash-force pressures.
This means we are acting as an automotive broker within an organization that is second to none. It isn't pretty to hear, either, the roar swelling in one disorganized hash of violence and reverb. The three-spoke steering wheel with the Sport Package is finished with the same material. Active safety features, designed to help the driver avoid collisions, include Dynamic Stability Control and the latest generation antilock brakes. That is an absurd price for repair. The emphasis, through items such as supportive seats and clean analog gauges, is on driver comfort and involvement. He was very miss informed and kinda rude.
Double sized sun roof somewhat appeases my desire for air and sun. We have the ability to broker any new car available. Rest assured, this remains a true sports sedan, but its sporting heart is a little more difficult to find under all the stuff. It sometimes seems balkier than a regular key. The soft vinyls and plastics in the 3 Series sedans are an improvement in both touch and appearance compared to previous generations, and they put the car more closely in line with the best cars in this class. For those extreme times, the brakes, too, stand ever ready to add vital safety margins.

Window switches are now clustered near the driver's arm rest, where they're easier to locate without glancing, rather than spread around the shifter on the center console. With the top down, the 3 Series convertible offers clean, uninterrupted lines. None of this is necessarily a bad thing, but owners of older 3 Series models may wonder where their purist sports sedan went, or at what point all the gizmos start detracting from that sporting character.

Nothing is loose or jiggly, as if the body were hewed from a block of high-grade steel. We found the 328i fun to drive, with good throttle response that made us feel a class above other cars in traffic. The power seats that come with the Sport Package are outstanding. However, in the adroit G35, you'll occasionally want to go for the full 306 horses at 6800 rpm. Meanwhile, the 328xi features all-wheel drive, which enhances traction in wet or snowy weather.
Moreover, the trunk opening is considerably larger, making it easier to get things inside, and the additional trunk volume does not count a new divided storage bin under the load floor where a spare might have gone, if not for the 3 Series' run-flat tires. Even the standard-trim front buckets provide excellent support without feeling too hard. Every stick shift should come with this.
