Nice, got an overall score of 86 out of 100 with the category lowest being 73 and the highest 95. Actually it got a perfect "better than average" in every reliability category!

"Overall the redesigned BMW 3 Series sedan is an excellent car. The turbocharged four-cylinder in the 328i makes the car quick yet frugal, achieving 28 mpg overall. A turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder is also available. Ride comfort, noise isolation, and interior fit and finish are all impressive. Handling is very capable, but steering feel is less tactile than before. The rear seats are snug. Our main qualms are about the rough engine idle and the new stop/start system that is too abrupt when restarting the engine. The coupe, convertible, and M3 continue on the old platform. A hybrid sedan based on the six-cylinder turbo is new for 2013. A new wagon arrives next spring. First year reliability of the 328i sedan has been much above average."
