2007 328i, anything to watch out for?

My airbags deployed in my 2000 model and costs more than it's worth (though the body & engine are great).

This lead me to look into a couple of 2007 models of the same type.

Are there any particular problems this year had that should make me think twice.

I ask as some good deals I happened to run across have all been this year model.

Much better car

2007 cars have too many electronic issues (ABS/DTC, ELV, acceleration modules, comfort access module etc...) and they fixed them in 2009

Not a big fan of the automatic transmission. Think a lot of it has to do with the programming but it's annoying. Get 6MT.

Your answers are there.

One source that will reveal consumer complaints:

NHTSA's Safercar.gov

Look for 'complaints' and enter your year, make, model

You'll see consumer complaints in there.

Watch out for cops while you are speeding down the freeway overtaking A4s and what ever MBz models there are.

In 2010 I bought a pre- owned '07 E90 6MT with 19k miles. I traded it in last year for an '11 F07. The E90 had 130k miles on the clock. It was hands down the best car I ever owned, and I've owned Saabs, Audis, and Infinitis. From my experience, it was a great car.
