2008 BMW Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2008 saw some exciting new updates for BMW. 2007's best selling luxury vehicle in the US, the 3-series BMW, saw its specs finessed. This year, BMW drivers can find the 3-series in a convertible, coupe, wagon, or sedan. The convertible is rear-wheel drive only, but the other three come with an all-wheel-drive option. Most can be ordered with a 300 hp, 3.0 L twin-turbocharged six or the naturally aspirated 230 hp, 3.0 L, inline six-cylinder. Options for 2008's 3-series also include the new seven-speed dual clutch auto manual or the six-speed conventional manual transmission. The real highlight of the year, however, is the relaunch of the M3, 80% of which is new or redesigned. With a 4.0 L, V-8 engine pumping 414 hp, the coupe, sedan, and convertible versions can be fitted with a Sports package that includes paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel and six-speed auto transmission.
