2013 BMW 328i Coupe

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in the biggest, baddest, and fastest of every type of car, in the background there are some hidden gems. These jewels are, unfortunately for enthusiasts, getting harder to find – in this case, we have a naturally aspirated, inline-6, rear-drive coupe with a manual gearbox. If that sounds like an endangered species, you’re right – it seems to be. But by forgoing the turbocharger of the bigger brother 335i or twin turbos in the 335iS, jumping into this Liquid Blue Metallic 328i won’t cost you an arm or a leg – a good thing, since you’ll need both of each to drive it.

LOCAL PICK-UP PREFERRED.

Power in the 328i isn’t exactly pitiful, either – it’s got the N52 magnesium block 3.0 inline-6 rated at 231 horsepower. I had one of the higher-output versions in my E61, and it was a real joy to drive with lots of go. Shed a thousand pounds and hook it to a manual driving only the rear wheels, and the experience gets a lot better. The E92 isn’t my favorite modern BMW design but it is striking and pretty in its own way. This car was also highly optioned; with pretty much every package except sport seats (unfortunate one there), and low miles, and a dealer service history, this one looks like a great example.

For the asking price, it’s true that you can find greater performance in a 335i. You will also find greater bills. And you won’t get a 335i in this condition for the same price. If you like the classic inline-6 manual BMW, this is one of the last you could buy, as the all-turbocharged 4-series lineup replaced this chassis in 2013. This car really marks the end of an era, but what a way to go out!

  1. That is not an attractive car.

    Also, the link to eBay is pointing back to gcfsb.com

  2. Thanks Cory, link is fixed. And it looks like someone disagreed, as it’s now gone – just like the combination!
