Ready for some more F30 3 Series action? At  Laguna Seca, Jim of DrivesTV gets the BMW Performance Instructors and ALMS BMW race driver Bill Auberlen behind the wheel of the new 3 Series to share their expert opinion.

The new 328i and 335i goes on sale this weekend, but early reports show owners already taking possession of their new F30 3 Series.

The base price of the 2012 328i Sedan is $34,900 while the top-model, 335i, starts at $42,400. This represents a $300 and $350 base price increases versus the outgoing model.

    Can’t wait to drive the new F30 3 Series. Great article. 

  • BMW The Best

    I’d like these guys to drive the F10 5 Series on the track and share their opinions with us.

       pointless. F10 5 series will not be driven on the track. Besides they have done it and general consensus  was that the F10 5 is a soft luxury machine, with not enough sportiness even with the sport package. Closer to the Lexus then to a real BMW.
      The car looks and rides good and will be perfect for the 95% of people who buys the car.
      The 550i is the one they were most disappointed with, the 535 fared much better.  One tester  said a 535 with a slightly stiffer springs and shocks, regular (non-runflat) tires and w/o the electronic steering would be a cracking machine.

      Personal experience, the car is just fine for everyday driving. the 535 felt good, never driven the 550i yet. Enough power for anything, economical (got over 24mpg average) and perfect for the crappy roads of the NE US.

      There is zero need for the 550i though, if you need more power you can have the 535 chipped which brings power up to 370HP by Dinan.
      if you still need more power you can get the M5.  The 550i is heavy and soft, plus it is marginally faster/quicker then the 535. Pointless to spend the money on it.
