BMW - Advice on Used 3 Series

F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 (2012 - current) - Bimmerfest - BMW Forums - www.bimmerfest.com
Hi Everyone,

I'm currently a VW Mk6 GTI owner and have been thinking about upgrading to an Audi A4 or BMW 328i for some time now. I'm looking for a 2013+ model with a manual transmission and can spend up to ~$25k. I really enjoy both cars but have always been a bit hesitant due to the German luxury car maintenance horror stories I've heard over the years. These are the questions I was hoping you all could answer to help put my mind at ease:

What significant maintenance costs have you incurred over the time you've had your F30 3 Series? Could anything have been done to prevent them?

Is there a reason to seriously consider the 8 speed auto over the 6MT?

I would assume a lot of you considered an Audi A4 while shopping. Why did you choose the 3 Series? Do you regret not going with the Audi?

And finally, do you think owning a BMW or Audi is worth the extra cost and potentially expensive maintenance risks?

Thanks in advance for the help!
