1999 BMW 328i Problems
The blower final stage fan resistor is known to fail. Symptoms are the heater fan speed varies regardless of the setting, the fan will not turn off when the car is switched off, or the fan will not switch on at all.
Failure of the front control arm bracket bushings—often referred to as thrust rod bushings—is moderately common. One symptom is a clunk or jolt felt in the steering when braking.
A creak or squeak can be heard from the top of the front or rear doors. This noise is most noticeable when the windows are fully up. The noise is caused by the decay of the flocking material on the door seals. New door seals, Teflon tape, special lube, or a combination of all of these may be needed to eliminate the noise.

1999 BMW 328i Reviews
I purchased the car with 70K miles I have since driven 36K miles..keep in mind it is a 5 speed manual tranmission..excellent gas mileage, handles fantastic..have only changed oil..uses no oil between changes ,replaced rear tailight bulb , front headlight bulb( the dash indicates which light is out-very easy to change bulbs) I just replaced all 4 tires, and put in a new battery..everyone that rides with me comments on how quiet and comfortable car acts..needless to say I am extremely happy with vehicle..
Drive line broke then lower control arms had to be replaced... Rear window motor went out & window slips down a little while driving. Reverse works when it wants, tranny a lil sluggish (rpm goes up high when auto shift). Definitely transmission issues (outsourced to gm) check the recall avoided by BMW!!! love the look of the car, not very comfortable though.
