Seems like a lot of people view the 320i as not worthy of the BMW badge but I believe the opposite is true. Considering the price difference I would much rather drive a 320i Sport than let say a...

Well it seems like you have your mind made up. It would not be my top choice for the money but if you like the car I will say go for it. Best of luck.

The 2.Slow is VW's infamous 2.0 8v 115hp engine which was actually pretty robust, the other one is the VR6, because of its unique sound. Leasing the 1.8T Jetta sounds like a good idea on paper but...

I understand how you feel but after owning everything from the 2.0 Slow to the Chewbacca, I am convinced that owning a VW product is not the best financial decision.

Well this makes a lot of sense. I would just keep the 320i, a used 5-7K BMW could be a money pit.

Just found a 08 Sport with 46K miles for little under 16K. Not bad at all.

If I was in your position I would try to find a nice clean E90. They are usually very reliable and pretty ok on gas. The insurance is also surprisingly low too. I like to keep my cars for a very long...

The opposite can be found on the ATS forums. I guess if the acceleration of the 2.0T is sad, it would make the 328i sad as well since they are within .2 - .3 seconds of each other. Also, unless you...

To an E90 328 OR 335 driver the F30 feels bigger and softer. It is closer to the 5 series than the 3 and behaves like it.
To an E46 driver...Well this is what they thought on this very forum when...

Initially but it was sorted out with the LCI models. With the sport package it is by far my personal favorite daily set-up in a modern car.

Agreed, lol. Summer tires are absolutely useless in winter, even with a good AWD system. A/S are bad too, speaking from first hand experience.

I have to disagree with your statements. I drove a 335Xi, 328Xi and 328i sport (all E90 if that matters) and there was a rather noticeable difference in the way each car behaved. The Sport package...
