Review

Near flawless execution of style,
comfort, and performance... and it's
just plain fun to drive. If you have
never owned a BMW, it's better in just
about every way. The imperfection
came when my wife hit a curb with the
left front wheel at a slow speed and 3
airbags went off and $3500.00 later I
had my car back. It took the dealer
several tries to get the airbag light
to stay off


Best Features

Silky smooth 5 speed. Super quality leather, the engine is perfect!!! and has much more power than you would expect from 170 HP


Worst Features

My BMW service experience was not nearly on the same level as the quality of the automobile. Sorry BMW, but you have a lot of work to do with some of your dealers

Review

The car now has 98K miles. I had a few
problems with the car since I've owned
it. My Air bag light came on around
80K miles. Diagnosis is a faulty Air
bag computer, cost is $500. North
American BMW will not assist in any way
since warranty is not valid. Sunroof
acts up by not closing as it should. I
have found that this car needs alot of
pampering to make it run problematic
free. I have a toyota and no
problems. Not sure if I would
recommend one. I'll probably buy a
Porsche or Mercedes next time.


Best Features

I do admire the looks and style, especially the new M3 and M5's. Nice transmission and engine.


Worst Features

Improvements on electrical aspects of these cars are needed. Improve customer service is also recommended.

Review

I'm disappointed with the number of
problems that I have experienced since
buying the BMW 323i. I was expecting
more based upon the reputation. I like
the car, it's fun to drive, but I'm in
the dealership for repairs every few
months....broken window glides,
defective interior light, body molding
coming off the exterior, battery
failure. Beware.


Best Features

Performance and handling.


Worst Features

Overall quality on the windows glides, interior light, body molding, battery.

Review

5 spd, sports pkg. Still as much fun
to drive as when new. I am 6'4" and
with the sports seats set low it was
the only 5 speed I could actually fit
in comfortably. (what a shame) It
really feels like you're wearing it, a
sublime extention of your body. Speed
and handling continue to impress (even
scare at times) and never get tired of
looking at it. The extended warranty
is a good idea, so far front shocks,
brakes, a/c, speakers, fuel pump, etc.
Some how it is all still worth it.


Best Features

infinitely adjustible driving position, sport seats and suspension, excellent cornering, ultra smooth engine, consistant power right up to red-line in every gear, excellent brakes, great looks, big smiles.


Worst Features

stereo system, make the Dynamic Stability Control so it is not automatic and can only be activated manually ie in bad weather, stealth technology
