I love the heated steering wheel. Mine gets plenty warm--so much so that I usually turn it off after a few minutes.

Consumer Reports, whose opinions about cars I take with a big grain of salt, nonetheless has the best database of reliability. They rate the 328 "much better than average", with that score holding...

You're all making me wish I'd gotten the side/top view camera package for my 328GT after all. I got PDC and the rear-view camera but not the side/top cameras.

Same basic engine

328 reliability

The one area I listen to Consumer Reports in is reliability. They have probably the best database around. The 2012 328 is rated "Much better than average" in reliability. There's less data on the...

Re: BMW 328i xDrive Luxury Line Sports Wagon Review

Nice. Will drive a 328GT but suspect I'll be ordering a wagon. Thanks for posting.

Re: Ordered : diesel sports wagon

I estimate a diesel would save maybe $1500 over the six years I'd plan to keep the car. I've yet to drive one--but will--still wonder if the performance difference vs. the 328i is worth it.

Subject to driving a 328GT, when I'll be looking carefully at the space vs. driving experience tradeoff relative to the 328 wagon, I'm leaning toward the following:

Although I'd get a 328, I agree entirely with everything else you say about the 3GT vs. the wagon. The upside of the GT is a lot more interior room, especially in the back seat. The downside (for...

2014 328xi sport wagon vs. GT

Thanks Jeremy. List on the car I want is actually over $57K, so the markup is correspondingly more. I'm not familiar with the Ask-a-Dealer forum. Is it a part of Bimmerfest or separate?
