Congrats!

it is truly a great car. I love mine. I've had mine for 2.5yrs and has about 40k miles on it now. Keep in mind that it is a little noisier than a gas car..

Only issues I've had with are, one of the side cameras got water in the housing and had a complete DEF leak. I brought the car into the dealer and they fixed the leak under warranty. I guess a pipe ruptured and they had to replace it. Other issues I've had is during extreme cold weather I need to plug a battery caddy to keep the battery at a sufficient charged level. But since you're in the US and not Canada I don't think you'll have problem with that. Other than that, I haven't had any other problems with it.

I coded the car so that it would start in eco pro mode all the time but I've driven the car on the highway at about 80mph for periods 2-3h straight. The car runs like a charm and it is the best car I've owned so far.

Hopefully final update. SCR/DEF Metering line leaking. Replaced under goodwill. They stated that a lot of parts needed to be removed to replace the line. My cost would have been somewhere (for all 3 visits) between $6k and $7k. If the line failed due to corrosion, i would label it "susceptible". Even in MN, @ 3 years and 50k miles. nothing should be rusting to the point of failure on a BMW. Maybe the line just lost some kind of seal. I dont know, they never showed me the problem first hand.

This sounds exactly like the leak I've had. My car had a lot less mileage though .. but cold weather, snow/sleet and salt may be the contributing factor ...

Yeah, i think the clock is ticking now. If these lines have a shortened lifespan in cold weather i really do not want to pay to have it replaced again before we sell the car. We have a 100k mile extended warranty with the service plan. Which, not covering it...means i want to get as much out of it as i can, but dont want to go through that again. Gonna have to figure out some good timing on selling it. :\

Have a 2014 with 82000km. Other than low battery warnings I had 0 issues.
I use battery tender one a week in very cold weather.
So happy with the car, my new lease next month will be a 328d msport 2018

Is it fact that a G2x wagon won't come here? I bet on it, but saw nothing official.

Yea I dunno but I read rumors somewhere that in 2019 no more 3 series wagons for N America.
Maybe they will bring back the 5 wagon? I hope.

I have a 2014 328d with 120,000 miles on it. Zero problems except a check engine light about an hour after I picked it up new with 4 miles on it... Dealer reset it and it has never come back on. All regular maintenance done at the dealer at prescribed intervals. Great car/engine, in my case - not even so much as a bad light bulb. I'm on my 3rd set of tires, and still running the original brakes - but they are due to get changed at the next service visit...
