The latest convert after seeing and sitting in my GT currently has a 535. If not for the GT I would not have bought a BMW. None of the car models lower than the 7 series had the passenger space I wanted, even a 7 didn't have the cargo room, and I did not want an SUV.
Well said. I`ve also seriously considered an X3 but I couldn`t ignore that the GT has

- a lower base price
- handles better
- offers more standard options
- more rear legroom (even more than an X5)
- plenty of cargo room
- better fuel economy
- lower cost for wheels and tires
- possibility of adding M Performance Power Kit which I did.

Don`t get me wrong, the X3 is a great car and the 2018 version is even better... but like you said, not everyone wants an SUV.
I'd add that the x3 is probably the most useless car in the bmw lineup. If you need an SUV, get the real SUV like the X5. If you want better handling, get a 3/4 series. We have a 3GT and a X5, and I feel like that the perfect match.

Again this is just my personal opinion.

Garage List
Copied you sqexpress! We picked up an X5 40e in the spring and the 330GT end of the summer. Both great cars. The 40e gets amazing gas consumption for such a large SUV and when towing I don’t even feel the trailer. And a great commuter car when in stop and go traffic.

The 330Gt is not quite as luxurious but has amazing room, convenience of hatch and great highway gas mileage.

I my opinion they both look great. The GT is rare in a sea of regular 3 Series sedans.

It’s unique, versatile, and sophisticated.

If you dislike the GT, your palette hasn’t matured enough.

Just bought a 3 Series GT. I had to chose between a 3 Series Sedan and a GT, and after carefully weighting all the factors, finally I was sold on the rear space and cargo capacity. I also looked for a 4 Series GC, but they are more expensive and they don't have enough room for rear seats and less cargo space.

The deciding factor was that the wife will stay with the baby on the rear seats, and I need them to be comfortable. When the baby will be older I can change the GT to a 4 series GC.

I love the way the 3GT looks, it reminds me of my dad's Ford Sierra (EU). Love the hatchback look for cars - much more practical.

And in the end it's a matter o taste.

BMW 328i GT 2015

Bonjour,
J'ai un petit problème électrique avec le siège passager: Il ne recule pas et n'avance pas. Par contre tout le reste fonctionne très bien. Est-ce un problème de fusible ???.
Aussi, ou pourrais-je trouver un digramme des fusibles de la voiture?
Quelqu'un pourrait m'aider ???
Merci!

A bit of translation may help the request:

I'm having a little problem with my electric passenger seat. It wont move back and for, but other electrical function still working good (I assume, Jean meant the seat adjustment, up/down etc...)
Is it a problem with the fuse? If possible can someone show me where to find the diagram of the fuses (may be location on the car too!)
Thanks you.
My car is BMW 328i GT 2015...:-)
Jean (?) Pretty sure folks in the forum will be able to help you out.
