Reviewed: 2009 BMW 3-Series

4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6 6-speed manual AWD

Why the 2009 BMW 3-Series?

Powertrain performance

It is a very smooth and powerful engine with almost no turbo-lag. Power is available on demand. I love the torque.

Discounts & incentives

The bad economy has given dealers an incentive to offer great deals to prospective buyers. On top of that, BMW is offering 0.9% financing.

Why Not the 2009 BMW 3-Series?

Price or payments

This car is pretty expensive and the payments are somewhat burdensome, but I understood the cost of entry going into the car buying process. That said, you get what you pay for. This car is still a great value.

Insurance cost

My insurance went up about 25% when I purchased this car (I previously owned a late model Nissan Xterra). Depreciation is not a huge issue, though, as 3-Series hold their resale value very well.
