It's a good automobile. I never plan
to sell it. I also plan never to sell
Smooth drive, exceptional gas mileage,
good steering, adequate performance,
lots of products offered on the net
for improved performance.
I have yet to add any aftermarket
products, but I intend on getting:
Bilstein shocks, Eibach springs,
Eibach sway bars, AC Schnitzer wheels,
some body add-ons, and maybe later on
some new camshafts, lighter flywheel,
Quaife differential, and big brakes.
What a great car. Its taken everything
I've given it(Not that I abuse), and it
is as good as it was when I bought it 3
yrs ago. Looks like a $35,000 car. It
gets more looks than my CLK430. The
only thing I didn't like about it was
that its rather underpowered,
especially with A/C on! Poor thing--I
felt like I was ringing its neck on
those hot summer days. Also, when
raining, the water spills in when door
is ajar. Perhaps I won't sell it, if I
can't get what I'm asking. Good luck
Have had my 94 325IC for almost 2 years now. Its been awesome, fun to drive, and been virtually problem free. In 20k miles, only had to replace a leaking power steering hose. The car exemplifies BMW quality.
Top down driving and 5 spd transmission.
Could use a little better quality on door panels. The leather material disbonds from the door panels and a littel unsightly.
I loved this car from the first time I laid eyes on it. The styling is truly a classic and still looks gorgeous and modern and relevant. I have added a lot of items from Racing Dynamics aero package to 18" wheels Bilstein sport shocks and stage 3 suspension bushings when they needed to be replaced, at 210,000 miles, so it handles incredibly, and will turn on a dime with virtually no sway. With 226,000 miles, the engine is VERY strong, but then it has a Jim Conforti cold air intake and chip with an M3 exhaust. The car has been extremely reliable and has required surprisingly little maintenance. This is my 4th BMW and I don't want to imagine not driving a BMW for the rest of my life.
Mine is red with tan leather, the styling stunning. The car is a true "10" I'm constantly complimented! Handling, comfort and power.
The transmission synchro gears are starting to fail, so I'd definitely improve that, but it does have a ton of miles.
Bought this car at fully depreciated price in July 2012 and have been driving approximately 3 or 4 days a week for last 3 months. Had to put in a radiator which was leaking when I bought it ($475). Getting the top down and taking her out for a spin is well worth it though. Good on gas (having been a truck SUV driver). Has decent pick up. Car has 174k miles on it an idles as smooth as can be. Car has been properly maintained. It is a form of therapy and so much fun. If you are thinking of buying a convertible I happily recomment this one. Take it to a mechanic as they are old cars now.
Auto top, leather seats with warmers, 6 disc CD changer, 6 cylinder engine sound is awesome,
heavy feel (built like tank), pretty roomy for convertible.
Based on car's history it sounds like these may have overheating problems as radiator ages. Stay on top of this and do not operate vehicle hot!
