1990 BMW 3 Series 325i 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought a 1989 BMW 325i with 138k miles from its original owner. She now has 186k. It's in perfect running condition and cosmetically it's near perfect if not immaculate.
I changed the transmission and made it a 5 speed just for preferance but the 4 Speed automatic transmission was flawless.
I get about 23.5 combined mpg with either transmission with mostly hwy driving.
I highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a cool vintage car on a budget. Given you perform the proper maintenance, this car will not let you down and it's a great daily with decent MPG.

Review

I purchased this car for $2500, with 180k miles on it so it needed some basic mechanical attention. Mostly tired parts, but nothing wrong with the engine at all. Being that I have access to parts at cost and I do all my own work, it may not be a fair assessment however I LOVE this car! For me the parts are cheap, the work is easy and as long as you take care of the wear items, it will run forever. OK maybe not forever but I recently turned 200,000 miles and I'm proud of it. I look forward to hitting the 250k mark. I will drive this car anywhere without worry. This weekend I am taking it to LA from San Francisco and expect it to be a sweet ride down Hwy 1!


Best Features

The ride, engine, top of course, on board computer, styling. It's a Classic that still gets attention today. I chose this over an e36. It was made with all the right bits and bells before cars started getting out of hand post ODBII. I highly recommend to anyone who can take care of one.


Worst Features

Sport seats could be better, wear out over time and while leather is nice, vinyl is better for a convertible. The 91 and 92 had the updated bumpers and looked the best.

Review

I really have a 1987 BMW, but the site
does not go back that far. I bought it
in late 1987 and I love it so much. I
only have 37,770 miles on it...right
now!!!!!!!!!! In 1999, I had only
13,000 miles on it, but I drove it more
because I wanted more thrills. I love
the engine. It is so great!!! 170
horsepower is a lot for a little hot
car. I can smoke new Civics, Mazda 3's,
and Accords. But, those cars are easy.
They have Japanese. I have PURE GERMAN!
I have not upgraded anything because it
is hot as it is. I like the 4 door
design and never let anyone eat or
drink in it. I still have that leather
smell in the car and it is still very
strong!!!


Best Features

Leather, Sunroof, LOVE THE ENGINE AND EXHAUST NOTE

Review

I have owned this BMW since new. This
car is built like a tank. She never
gave me one bit of trouble. I still
have her, she still looks brand new
after a waxing.


Best Features

Strong car that when taken care of, can last forever, if you want it to.


Worst Features

Add Cup Holders
