First BMW

Hi everyone first time posting and would like your thoughts on this car I found at a local dealer. In Sept 2012 I bought myself a 2012 G37 Infiniti, it was a nice car I enjoyed for a short 8 weeks. In Nov I was hit and the car was deemed a totaled/salvage so Insurance finally paid off my car loan etc. though I thoroughly enjoyed this car I was thinking maybe I should try a different car since the infiniti did not work out for me and this time I am considering a used vehicle. The car I found is a 2009 BMW 328 i Sedan it has 42, 607 miles and listed at 20,994K Thanks for your input

328 would be a BIG step back... You're dropping 100hp and 70lbs of torque (albeit@ 5200). I'd look at something else, unless those things aren't of interest.

Yes I figured as much it is ~100 HP less however I only drove it a few weeks not long enough to really get used to it and now I'm back in my original car so it's a far cry from either vehicle I don't want to spend as much money as I did the first time even though Ins payed me back just about all I spent originally. What do you think of the price etc on the BMW I found

328 is a good car but the 335 might be a little more to your liking but I totally understand if not wanting to spend the extra $$$, if u had the g37 for a few weeks you will definitely notice the lack of torque and hp driving a 328, 335 comes with 300lbs of torque

Seems ok after my 1 minute search around. You should throw the features up so the 328 crowd can give you better feedback.
