More pictures of the 2018 BMW 3 series



I posted a few pictures a while ago. I saw this car last week. I was on my way to Mammoth, test driving the Buick Cascada. While the BMW was going to (where else) Death Valley.

It just looked super boring, as you can see.
It's really sad that BMW cannot really find a new design for their sedans. I guess they don't really care as long as they sell like hot cakes (Especially the 3 series).

It is still sad...

The 3 series may look understated compared to the 4 series, but those wishing to fly under the radar screen of wannabedom are ok with this look. In any case, it still has the badge after all and makes them feel good about overpaying. What else would they want? By the way Vince, what are YOU driving these days?

Good question...

I like wagons and the choices out there are limited. I have a 3 series wagon. I like the understated looks. If you like a very entertaining and fun to drive car, you're not over paying. The 3 series wagon is also the best equipped and well organized of the Volvo, VW and Audi Alltrack. I'm not including the Mercedes here as it is in a larger size class (E) and wallet bulging budget.

Now if you buy a BMW because of the badge, you are truly wasting your money.

So are you trying to convince us that you bought a wagon because you are into ....entertaining driving?

BMWs are overpriced and destined to stay that way. I do not mind the looks of 3 series. I just wished the 2 cylinder was not as noisy in idle and the auto start/stop did not suck as much. Other than that with the right size wheels, it looks ok, I guess.

Yep. Drive one. Easily handles as well as the sedan. It's why you buy a wagon over any of these CUVs everyone is driving. Still low to the ground, steering is tight and handling is very nice.

Enjoy it, because BMW is discontinuing it. Obviously CUVs ate the wagon's lunch.
