228i reliability

My 328d lease is coming to an end and while I just love the car, I am thinking of something else for a fun weekend driver.

Read a number of 228 reviews, most seem to be positive.

So I am toying...

Mine gets 44mpg no matter how hard I drive it, with ASS off.

I see no reason to ever enable it and put all that extra wear and tear on things, for very little if any measurable mileage difference.

Just use a good spray detailer and microfiber cloth. I clean mine with it 80% of the time; rarely have to actually wash it.

I doubt you can get installable updates from anyone other than BMW.

If Waze works where you are, just use it instead. Besides navigation, you get reports of hazards, speed traps, roadkill, etc.

Self-leveling headlights?

I have a '17 328 with halogen headlights. I have seen references to these being self-leveling. Is that accurate?

Griot's Speedshine for everyday. I also use the Best of Show about every 3rd time. Best stuff I've ever used.

For wax, I use Collinite 845 insulator wax.

Washing engine

Anything unusual to cover before washing the engine in my 328d? I know to cover the alternator and fuseblocks. And I just use a mind soap like Simple Green and hose off via a gentle rinse.

I meant the last year of E90 production, sorry I wasn't clear.

And again, this will not be my daily driver. This will be for weekends and car shows.

Thanks for the feedback.

I agree 100% with buying late in a model cycle, ideally the last year if at all possible.

The N55 was just the last year, correct? Any reason to stay away from it?

Reliability and performance parts availability

Is the E90 335i considered one of the better 3-series as far as reliability and the availability of performance parts? If I get one it would be for pleasure driving, not a daily driver.
