1993 BMW 3 Series 325is 2dr Coupe


Review

Got this fifth BMW used with 98k on it, had the obvious mechanical faults repaired but NOT the radiator, which I learned has an estimated life of 90k miles. Big, costly mistake! In spite of this, I rate this BMW second best out of five. If you maintain the car, it will give good service. Of all the 12 or so cars I have owned, BMWs have been the most satisfying to own & drive. I rate it above Mercedes for a driver's car; highway performance is great, handling can't be beat by any car that I can afford. It's not perfect, but what is? If you do the required maintenance ($$$) it won't let you down, plus it's great fun to drive. The 3 series is easy to park and has good performance and comfort.


Best Features

Road handling, 5 speed trans,layout of instrument panel, overall size, fuel economy, fold-down rear seats, on-board trip computer. Heater & A/C.


Worst Features

Better interior trim & asembly (glove box door trim panel fell off - poor glue job). All-metal radiator (plastic parts don't last). Better water pump. Only BMW short life battery will fit in trunk. Make sport seats available as a stand-alone option.

Review

Bought this car with high expectations and boy they were exceeded! I love this car, very quick acceleration, great handling, and still pretty comfortable. As long as you maintain BMW's they will treat you well.


Best Features

Engine (the engine and exhaust note are amazing), tranny, handling, stereo, build quality, fun to drive, gas mileage (even with very spirited driving I average around 24-26mpg in the city), On board computer and definatly mpg gauge on instrument cluster, and the E36 style good looks!


Worst Features

more power (that was taken care of with 328, and M3), better factory waterpump....thats about it!

Review

I have owned 5 other cars since being able to drive and the 325is is undoubtedly the best vehicle I have owned. I currently have over 191,000 miles on the original engine and it performs better than most vehicles with less than a third of those miles.

Review

I have had this car for 8 years and it is by far the best car I have ever owned. Its black on black wth gray around the very bottom on the exterior which looks very good and you don't see on other cars and newer BMW's. The dash also is very cool with all the buttons for the auto A/C. The road feel in this car is like no other make of car I have ever driven. There are many other little extra's that when you get a BMW 325is and experience it you will understand why its such a great car and hard to let go have once you own one. The exterior styling is very classic and my car looks as good as anything out there and its almost ten years old.


Best Features

Exterior/interior styling, cruise control operation, one touch up/down window control, road feel through the steering wheel, ride and handling, great gas mileage for a V6 and door moldings that really do keep you from getting dings.


Worst Features

BMW dealerships could be a lot less expensive for parts and labor. Small trunk opening, can not get a lawnmower through it.
