2013 330i

2013 330i DEFAULT

Excellent steering, handling, transmission, and high tech features and classy interior and sporty exterior with tree powerful and quick motors available in the 328/335/M3. The 320 is still got the nice designs and such but they’re terribly underpowered. For the 328 to only have 50 more horsepower, it feels like it’s got 100 more. And the fuel economy is the same on the 328 and the 320. idrive is great now, and they’re surprisingly roomy inside, front and back, snd the trunk is shockingly large as well. Just be sure you have a warranty cause we all know bmws are expensive to repair, especially their complicated turbo engines. And there’s a huge difference between sport, comfort, snd eco pro. Everything about the car changes-steering, throttle, transmission, so you can be in a quick car that can do 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds in the 328 and still get average 32 mpg combined in eco pro mode. Also the seats are comfy and the shifts are lightning quick in sport and they hold the exact right gear and don’t shift when you don’t want them to either, it’s 8spd is perfectly tuned and the computer always gets it right, like it knows exactly what gear u wanna be in. No need to even use the paddles. And the stereo system is great as well. And I love the way the led daytime lights look when you get the optional headlights. All around great car for fun sporty driving or road trips where you’ll get amazing mileage -esp in eco pro. It even shows u how many extra miles you’re getting vs comfort or sport when in eco pro. Pretty cool. And of course the obligatory keyless ignition and auto start/stop which can be shut off if it’s super hot and you’re in bad traffic and want that cool air to continue lol but in sport start/stop system is automatically disabled. It even sounds good for a turbo I4

The features included with the model series, combined with the engine output make a great deal. Although a bit smaller, it compares with the Mercedes-Benz E350 coupe, and the Audi S5.

BMW 4 Series G26, Gran Coupé (F34)

The sixth generation of the BMW 3 Series consists of the BMW F30 (sedan version), BMW F31 (wagon version, marketed as 'Touring') and BMW F34 (fastback version, marketed as 'Gran Turismo') compact executive cars. The F30/F31/F34 generation was produced from October 28, 2011 to 2019 and is often collectively referred to as the F30.

For the sixth generation, the coupé and convertible models were spun off to create the new BMW 4 Series nameplate. BMW also introduced a separate hatchback model under the 3 Series nameplate called the '3 Series Gran Turismo'.

The F30 is the first generation of 3 Series to be powered by a range of turbocharged engines exclusively and electric power steering (replacing the hydraulic power steering systems used previously).[3] The F30 also marked the 3 Series' first use of a three-cylinder engine in its 2015 facelift. A new plug-in hybrid F30 model was also introduced in 2016.[4] A long-wheelbase sedan version (model code F35) was sold in China.

The M3 model (designated F80) was introduced in 2014 and is powered by the S55 twin-turbocharged straight-six engine.

In March 2019, the BMW 3 Series (G20) was released as the successor to the F30.[5]

Development and launch[edit]

The exterior designer for the F30 sedan was Christopher Weil[6] and exterior designer for the F31 Touring was Michael de Bono.[7]

The F30 was unveiled in Munich on 14 October 2011,[8] with market launch and first customer deliveries on 11 February 2012.[9]

Body styles[edit]

  • Long wheelbase sedan (F35)

Sedan (F30)[edit]

The F30 sedan debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March 2012[10] and was the first of the sixth generation 3 Series models to go on sale.[11] Early models included the 328i and 335i and (post LCI) later models included the 330i and 340i. The 320i, 318d, and 316d models were added to the F30 range in March 2012.[12] The 320i EfficientDynamics Edition and 316i were added in autumn of 2012.[13]

In the United States, the arrival of the four-cylinder models marked the first time a 3 Series was sold with a four-cylinder petrol engine, since the E36 318i of the late 1990s.[14] The 328i xDrive and 335i xDrive went on sale in the summer of 2012.[15]

Touring (F31)[edit]

The wagon/estate body style (marketed as "Touring")[16] was unveiled at the 21st Auto Mobil International held at Leipzig in 2012.[17] This body style has a designation of F31, and the launch models consisted of the 328i, 320d and the 330d.[18] The 320i, 316d and 318d models were added in autumn of 2012.[13]

Gran Turismo (F34)[edit]

The 5-door fastback body style has a designation of F34 and is marketed as the 3 Series Gran Turismo, with styling similar to the 5 Series Gran Turismo. Although it features a rear hatchback, the 3 Series GT is not considered a successor to the 1993–2004 3 Series Compact 3-door hatchbacks. The Gran Turismo body style was discontinued for the following generation, the G20 3 Series as it proved to be unsuccessful in terms of sales.[19][20]

At 4,824 mm (189.9 in), the F34 is 200 mm (7.9 in) longer than the sedan and Touring models. This extra length is partly facilitated by the 110 mm (4.3 in) longer wheelbase shared with the F35 long wheelbase sedan models.[21] The F34 is also 79 mm (3.1 in) taller than the F30/F31.[22][23] These increased dimensions result in the rear wheels being located further back and lower with respect to the rear seat, and allows for three full-size rear seats.[24]

The F34 version was unveiled at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show in 2013.[25] At launch, the engine range consisted of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines in straight-4 and straight-6 configurations. All-wheel drive was available in the "i xDrive" and "d xDrive" models. The F34 received a facelift ("Life Cycle Impulse") in mid-2016, a year after the facelift was introduced for the other body styles of the F30 generation.[26][27][28]

LWB sedan (F35)[edit]

A long-wheelbase sedan model having a designation of F35, was produced for the Chinese market.[29] The wheelbase is increased by 110 mm (4.3 in) to 2,920 mm (115.0 in); this increases rear knee room by 90 mm (3.5 in)[29] and results in an overall length of 4,734 mm (186.4 in). The vehicle was produced in BMW's Shenyang production plant, and has chrome trim on the doors to distinguish it from the regular F30 sedans.[29]

The F35 was unveiled at 2012 Auto China in Beijing. Initial models included the 320Li, 328Li and 335Li.[30] Post-facelift (LCI) models consisted of the 316Li, 320Li, 328Li, 328Li xDrive and 335Li.[31]

Exterior styling[edit]

The F30/F31 has grown in all dimensions compared to its predecessor.[32] The styling is similar to previous generations with a sweeping bonnet, short front overhang, and long wheelbase. Headlamps now connect to a wide kidney grill. Tail lamps also sport a wide "L" shape design seen in many BMW models.

Interior and equipment[edit]

In the sedan models, the rear headroom, leg room and shoulder room increased compared with their E90 predecessors.[33]

Options include heated front seats, split-fold rear seats, satellite navigation and a widescreen display in the centre console.[34][35][36]The Bluetooth that’s built-in into the car now supports audio streaming. The traditional mechanical shift lever was replaced by a shift by wire shifter (first used by BMW in the 2007 E70 X5).[37]

In some markets, in addition to the base and M Sport models, three 'trim lines' were available for the F30/F31: Modern Line, Sport Line and Luxury Line.[38] These lines form the base packages upon which extra options could be specified. The Modern Line was discontinued after the 2014 model year, due to low sales.

M Performance Parts can be fitted to all models with the M Sport trim. These include sport brakes for 18 inch and higher wheels, side skirt ground effects, black kidney grilles and carbon fibre mirrors.

Engines[edit]

BMW straight-four petrol engine (N20)

The petrol models initially used the turbocharged 4-cylinder N13, 4-cylinder N20 and 6-cylinder N55 engines. This meant that the 325i and 328i models (traditionally powered by naturally-aspirated 6-cylinder engines) now used the turbocharged 4-cylinder N20 engine.[39] For the 2016 facelift (LCI), the engines were updated to the 3-cylinder B38, the 4-cylinder B48 and the 6-cylinder B58.

The diesel models initially used the 4-cylinder N47 and 6-cylinder N57 turbocharged engines. For the 2016 facelift, the 4-cylinder models were updated to the B47 engine, while the 6-cylinder models retained the N57 engine.

Transmissions[edit]

The available transmissions are:

M3 model[edit]

Main article: BMW M3 #F80 M3

The M3 version (designated F80, the first time an M3 has used a separate model code) was introduced in 2014. It is powered by the S55 twin-scroll-turbocharged straight-six engine. Production of the M3 halted in October 2018.[45]

Special models[edit]

ActiveHybrid 3[edit]

Based on the 335i Sedan, the ActiveHybrid 3 includes a 40 kW (54 hp) synchronous electric motor, a lithium-ion battery positioned underneath the luggage area and a 2-zone climate control system with stationary air conditioning. The electric motor generates 210 N⋅m (150 lb⋅ft) of torque. The maximum all-electric driving range is 4 km (2.5 mi), with a top speed of 75 km/h (47 mph).[46][47]

The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2012.[48]

The US EPA rated the 2013 ActiveHybrid 3 with a combined fuel economy of 28 mpg‑US (8.4 L/100 km), with 25 mpg‑US (9.4 L/100 km) in the city, and 33 mpg‑US (7.1 l/100 km) on the highway.[49]

330e iPerformance[edit]

BMW 330e iPerformance

The BMW 330e iPerformance is a plug-in hybrid unveiled at the IAA in Frankfurt in September 2015. The first units were registered in Europe by late 2015 and North American sales began in 2016.[50][51][52]

The 330e features a four-cylinder petrol engine and an 66 kW (88 hp) electric motor. The powertrain is rated at a total of 185 kW (248 hp) and 420 N⋅m (310 lb⋅ft) of torque.[50] The United States EPA rated the 2016 BMW 330e energy consumption in all-electric mode at 47 kWh per 100 miles, which translates into a combined city/highway fuel economy of 72 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPG-e) (3.3 L/100 km petrol equivalent), but only 14 miles all-electric range. When powered only by the petrol engine, EPA's official combined city/highway fuel economy is 31 mpg‑US (7.6 L/100 km).[53]

Alpina version[edit]

The Alpina B3 (F30) was based on the F30 3 Series.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Dinan Performance Spring Set - 2013-2018 BMW 328i/330i xDrive

Suspension systems that not only transform the stance of the vehicle but also maintain ride quality and improve upon handling are what Dinan suspensions are known for. This is accomplished by pairing springs sets with bump stops spring perches or both to maintain suspension travel resulting in a smooth ride while also improving mechanical grip and handling. This is what makes Dinan suspension systems unique. While we are able to sell each component separately it is highly recommended that both the spring sets and the supplemental ride quality and handling kits are used in tandem in order to maintain the Dinan quality standards our customers are used to. Experience the Dinan difference with this combination and enjoy the ride it provides. Dinan's Performance Spring set for the F30 328i/330i (xDrive) provides greater control over body roll by virtue of carefully calibrated spring rates. Additionally, Dinan lowers the 328i/330i by 1" in front and rear for improved suspension geometry and an even more aggressive stance. The Dinan springs are CNC wound with high tensile chrome silicon wire and shot-peened for stress relief to last the life of the car. The 30% increase in stiffness will reduce the rear suspension compression under acceleration and front suspension compression (or dive) under braking, giving your car a more controlled feel. The Dinan performance springs will also provide a noticeable improvement in grip for high-speed driving situations that will inspire confidence in your car's capabilities. The reduced body roll makes the steering more responsive to driver input and will be noticed at speeds as low as 20 mph up to the top speed of the vehicle. NOTE: Dinan Performance Spring sets should be purchased and installed with the corresponding Ride Quality and Handling Kit to achieve the advertised ride height performance and ride quality. While not explicitly required, if the matching component is not purchased and installed you will get less than favorable results in the form of poor ride quality and improper handling traits. While we will maintain a full warranty on product defects any claims against the cars improper handling ride quality traits due to not purchasing the corresponding handling kit will not be warranted.

Features:

  • Vehicle lowered 1" in the front and rear
  • Compatible with both conventional and factory electronic shocks
  • 30% increase in spring stiffness
  • Substantial reduction in body roll
  • Preset to prevent spring sag

BMW 3-Series Expert Review

Staff Writer

Pros

  • Powerful turbocharged engines
  • Sedan has lots of rear legroom
  • Lots of available configurations

Cons

  • 335i has soft suspension tune
  • Can get pricey with options
  • Lots of available configurations

While the BMW 3 Series sedan was all-new for 2012, the 3 Series coupe, convertible, and M3 carry over from the previous generation for 2013. With three body styles (coupe, sedan, and wagon), seven engines, four transmissions, and choice of rear- or all-wheel-drive, the 2013 3 Series/M3 can be had in numerous combinations.

The 3 Series sedan is available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4, a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6, and a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 hybrid. A six-speed manual or eight-speed auto as well as rear- or all-wheel-drive is available on all non-hybrid engines. A new base model joins the sedan lineup in 2013: the 320i and 320i xDrive sedans are powered by a version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter with 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque that is EPA rated 22-24/34-36 mpg city/highway depending on transmission and drive wheels. The 240-hp, 255 lb-ft turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 continues to power the 328i/328i xDrive sedans and is rated 22-23/33-34 mpg. BMW 335i/335i xDrive sedans produce 300 hp and 300 lb-ft from a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6, which is rated 20-23/28-33 mpg. The ActiveHybrid3 is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 and electric motor powertrain good for 335 hp, 330 lb-ft, which is rated 25-33 mpg.

As a carryover model from the last generation, the 3 Series coupe and convertible are powered by a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter I-6 or a turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 in two stages of tune. The 2013 BMW 328i/328i xDrive coupe and 328i convertible are powered by a naturally aspirated 230-hp, 200 lb-ft 3.0-liter I-6 mated to a six. Coupe models are available in rear- or all-wheel-drive, while the convertible model is rear-drive only. Two-door 328i models are rated 16-19/25-28 mpg. The 335i/335i xDrive coupe and 335i convertible use the same 300-hp, 300 lb-ft turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 as the 335i/335i xDrive sedan, but mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed auto and is rated 18-20/27-28 mpg. A rear-drive 335is coupe and convertible get a bump to 300 hp and 320 lb-ft, though at the expense of fuel economy (17-18/24-26 mpg). The rear-drive M3 coupe and convertible are also carryover models and are powered by a naturally aspirated 414-hp, 295 lb-ft 4.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The M3 is rated 13-14/20 mpg. Next year, redesigned two-door 3 Series and M3 models become 4 Series and M4 coupes and convertibles.

In a comparison test against the 2013 Cadillac ATS Turbo, the 2012 BMW 328i sedan won the "comparison by the skin of its teeth" to "keep its segment crown" due to the Caddy's unsorted shifter and suspension tuning. In a separate comparison, the BMW 335i Sport came in last place behind the Mercedes-Benz C350 Sport and Cadillac ATS 3.6. We concluded that the BMW was "expensive, though the underrated engine does give you loads of power. Damping rates too soft for a car with so much grunt." In a three-way comparison, the 2011 BMW M3 beat the 2013 Audi RS 5 and 2011 Cadillac CTS V Coupe. We summed up its win saying, "The oldest car here, but like a good red wine, it's getting better with age. Driver-focused powertrain and chassis make it a scalpel among sledgehammers."

While the all-new 3 Series sedan arrived in 2012, BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system is new for 2013 sedans as is the ActiveHybrid 3 model and new base 320i/320i xDrive sedan. The previous-generation 3 Series coupe and convertible and M3 carryover for 2013, but will be replaced with the 4 Series coupe and convertible and M4 on the new chassis in 2014. The 2013 BMW 3 Series sedan has a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS for cars built after November 2012.

A new entry-level 320i sedan with a 180-hp turbo 2.0-liter I-4 and all-wheel drive are added to the 2013 3 Series sedan. The ActiveHybrid 3 with the turbo 3.0-liter and electric motor will arrive later in the 2013 model year.
