"You shouldn't put much basis in a BMW review by CNET"4.0 starson by Hkrodin
Pros: The new 3-series has finally lost the choppy-looking front end, but still offers the near-perfect handling of a rear-wheel-drive sedan, and is still available with a manual transmission.
Cons: Red rear turn signals, instead of amber, mean your lane changes and hazard lamps may not be immediately distinguishable to other drivers - a strange trend with the German cars sold in the USA lately. Electric-power steering robs steering feel.
Summary: CNET's review states, "... buyers of the BMW 328i have, in the past, tended to be less serious about driving and more into the status of the blue-and-white roundel." Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are a serious driver, the 3-series (and 1-series) have been the only choice in the BMW line-up since the demise of the E-39 5-series in 2003. Yes, there are a lot of status-symbol-driven BMW owners that can only afford a 3-series instead of the more expensive 5-, 6-, or 7-series, but to say that 3-series drivers is for non-serious driver really calls this review into question.
