BMW 3-Series Coupe 328i Sport 2d (1998/S)

BMW 3-Series Coupe 328i Sport 2d (1998/S) - Owner Review

Fantastic drive, great roadholding except in wet - it's a powerful rear wheel drive car. Don't be afraid of high miles - they can take it and still drive like they just rolled off the production line if they have been serviced properly.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (92-99)

Value

5 out of 5

You cannot buy anything faster with relatively low insurance for this price. 30mpg on motorway being reasonably sensible, ~20-25mpg round town.

Costs

3 out of 5

It's a beemer so parts can be a little more pricey - it's a quality car: avoid main dealer service/repair costs and search out specialists.

Performance

4 out of 5

It's a quick car, no doubt, however ASC/traction control essential - and keep it turned on! Avoid stacking it into trees/ swopping ends coming off wet roundabouts with too much juice on.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Battery died although it was original one, so had done 6 years - otherwise no problems.

328 sports is M3 kitted less £75 of plastic mesh and lip spoiler at the front and £150 M3 mirrors - it looks the dogs nuts.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Mtec suspension best, still soaks up speedbumps admirably. Leather good quality, sports seats firm and comfortable even on long trips.
