zacbri,

Neither the 328i convertible or sedan are rocket ships. And the difference in 0-60 times would only be noticeable with a stopwatch.

The 328i convertible is a beautiful hardtop coupe...

Could be a few things; ball joint, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing etc.

Take it to an indy BMW repair shop and have them put it on a lift and inspect the front suspension.

Not much can be done in the quicker, faster department, but there are many things that can be done to upgrade the suspension.

Yeah, it sounded like 'ol rsandez was a short term thinker, so you're prediction is probably on track.

I hope the "school of hard knocks" has wised him up in the past three years.

Seems like the first aid kit is AWOL in all of the used E90 and E92's I have looked at (including my 2006 325i).

Is it perishable? Are BMW owners inherently accident prone so the kits get used...

David, I am also torn between buying an E92 M3 and an E92 335i (or 335is).

I am leaning toward the M3 since it is the better "hard core" driver's car, but if you want a daily driver the 335i or...

Man, since cars back then were not nearly as safe as cars today you were fortunate to have walked away. No airbags, the dash surfaces were either metal or metal covered in thin hard plastic.

There isn't really a "problem" with the 2013 335xi engine (the N55 turbo I-6) compared to the 2015 328xi (N20 turbo I-4). The 335xi is a much more powerful car. It is in the E90 series where the 2015...
