Question 2009 328i Xdrive

HI,

I am looking into purchasing a 2009 328i Xdrive and wanted to get some feedback on the owners experiences?

The car has 24000 miles on it and is priced at $25k.

I am looking to pull the trigger soon, so any personal reviews on the vehicle is greatly appreciated!

Steve

I have an E92 328i xDrive. I was looking for a reliable daily driver and it fits the bill perfectly. Handles well, great in the snow/wet, mileage could be a little better but otherwise very pleased with it. The car is surprisingly quick too, if the revs are kept high the power is pretty good, better than I was expecting given what I had read on the forum.

Thanks! I test drove it today, and the car handles extremely well. I noticed that it really does have some pick up to it. Have you had any engine issues or anything of the sort?

The N52 is a very potent and reliable power plant.

No engine issues at all so far (6K miles).

Reliability was the main reason I went for the 328 over the 335.

I've put just about 13k on my 2009 that I bought CPO in November of 2011. I just turned 45k miles. Car has been rock solid so far. Looks like a nice price. Coupe or sedan?

Although I have the RWD, and not the X-drive, I really love my '09 328i...I have had it for 14k miles, and have had zero problems. The car that you are considering seems very reasonably priced, as long as it has the Sport package

warranty question

I have a 2009 328i with 35K on the clock, i looked through the book but couldnt find the information regarding the warranty. When i bought the car in July 2012 i bought the extended warranty till 100K, but my question is how long is the OEM warranty good for? i know my VW Passat had 4 yrs/50K (if i am not mistaken) when i bought it new. Can somebody please shine some light on this.

Thanks

Standard warranty is 4/50,000 miles for the BMW too. Maintenance is also 4/50,000. CPO adds another 2/50,000.

Purchased a 2009 328i x-drive too (coupe) and love it. Honestly, every time I shift, press the throttle, and get in the car - I smile

Are there features you could probably get on other cars that you can't on a BMW or you need to spend more? Yeahp. I've always been a big interiors person and that's where I thought, IMO, the BMW falls short sometimes but I've come to learn that the simplistic interior is actually a blessing especially since driving is so much more fun. The best thing to do is go drive it! If you have any sort of experience like I did, you'll definitely pull the trigger. They don't call it the "Ultimate Driving Machine" for nothing.

Sounds like a good price depending on the equipment. If it has the premium package and cold weather package, it sounds like a good deal. I have a 328i xdrive coupe. It's definitely fun to drive with just enough power to get in trouble if you want to.
