Paul Miller BMW in Wayne NJ

I just had my car serviced there. Great people working, tho i had to wait a couple minutes for them to get my car and bring it to the front! Also Part guy didn't know what BetaLink was...lol. anyway Service Dept is top notch. I dealt with Rich Rulli, great guy! had my car done in 1 day, but decided to pick it up the next day(today) Loaner was a 07 328xi, not a bad car but definitely not as fast as my 330, which is odd.

I had a similar experience. Dropped off my 330i and got a 328xi as a loaner. It felt slower than both my 330i and even the 330xi that I had as a previous loaner.

Based on the power differences it makes perfect sense, but many people on this site insist that there is only negligible difference in power between the two cars. There is a definite difference. Just as the model number would suggest, the 328 merely splits the difference between the former 325i and 330i.

I druve BMW 328 and I have a 330 and you def knows there is more power under the hood. You feel it more at low to mid rpms. You have to wind up the 328 more than you do the 330 to get the power down. I can feel the difference without a problem but its not as noticable as some people make it our to be. I drove a coupe for the whole weekend when it first came out as a demo and I felt the difference in that car and my wife even felt it.

PAUL MILLER BMW in Wayne NJ is a dishonest dealership. Sold me a used car with one key and promised me the other. Wouldn't be a problem but it's the valet key and to get another one the ECU has to be replaced $2000. They never return calls. Ron Sheffield, one of the office managers, has promised to resolve the issue on more than 1 occasion but is always pushing it off to someone else. It's been going on for 10 months now. Take your business somewhere else!

Call them and talk to Ryan, the used car manager

Do you mean bmw of Bloomfield?

Bmw of Bloomfield sucks. I'm pretty sure they call themselves Essex bmw because they trashed their old name. They are dishonest salespeople there. I think anyone that can afford a bmw should be smart enough to know when they are getting played. They insulted my intelligance by letting telling me lies upon lies. I just sat there and couldn't wait to get my ass out of there. Do yourself a favor; Do your research and go to Kevin Zeller at morristown Bmw or Tom Bonariggo at Park Ave. I've bought cars from both of these men. No Bs. Just good info and hard work is the way they sell cars.

why is it odd? Its 25 less hp and AWD. I have driven a 328i stick and you can easily tell my 330i is faster. I drive these all day and trust me the 330i is faster and you can feel it as you have stated. In fact the 328 is closer to the 325 in performance than it is to the 330i like you and I have as its only 15hp more. The 325 and 328 are very close in performance.

Paul Miller dealers are a wreck. Between returning my Audi at one and servicing my Bmw at the other, I hope I never have to go back there again. Worst service I've had in this car so far.

Got my car there in June. The whole process was smooth from beginning to end. Friendly staff & guys that do the lease return checks are both young and gave me great tips on how not to get screwed with fee's when i return the car. They also allow mods that other dealerships don't for leased cars. Paul Miller is a very reputable dealership. Ray Catena is as well but i don't think they sell BMW.
