There were a number of automatic transmission problems in the past, but they've been pretty limited on the E90 series. The biggest one I've seen is the leaking mechatronic sleeve issue, which is an expensive repair if out of warranty, but it only applies to the ZF automatic transmissions, and those are only in the 335. The manual transmissions have sounded pretty solid.

So with regards to a 2007 328xi. I don't know of any significant manual transmission issues that I would be worried about. As always, your mileage may vary.
