+1

It is for me. After a 6 and four 5-series, I like my 328i Sports Wagon as much as any of them.

Slowing down I guess. I'm 78.

I will add that I think it's a bit hard for someone who...

Complete with southern accent. One out of six cars in Virginia has a vanity plate; the highest percent in the U.S. In my part of VA, Williamsburg, it's even more than that.

I have a 2014 328i Sports Wagon. I do mostly highway or neighborhood streets, and almost no stop and go. Once my car warms up the needle never goes above 250, but always stays to the left of 250...

This is a good question the OP hasn't answered. If it's not set at BLUE the A/C won't cool fully.

I agree. In fact I've noticed my 2014 328xi wagon is remarkably smooth from stop and when accelerating. Far better than the lurching tip-in from stop in my 2012 535xi.

Maybe the 328xi's just...

The first Six Series cars (635CSi) in the 1980's are also good candidates (See my avatar). Nothing like them then or now.

This situation was portrayed perfectly by William H. Macy as a shady car dealer in the movie FARGO. Except the issue there was undercoating.

Actually Volvo has a v60 wagon, which sort of competes with the 328xit. Again, I've never seen one anyplace but in an ad or an auto show.
