2000 BMW 3 Series Coupe 323Ci 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my 2000 # series coupe in Feb 2003 with 28,000 miles on it. In general, I love the car. It looks great, has comfy front seats, handles well on dry pavement, and gets awesome gas mileage. My complaints include lousy brakes - I've had them replaced once and they still pull the car to right and severe hydroplaning in rainy conditions.


Favorite Features

Smooth engine, comfortable front seats, great gas mileage, killer styling.


Suggested Improvements

Braking performace, brake dust, hydroplaning, mediocre climate control.

Review

Bought my 323 with 60k miles on the clock. The car has been fantastic. Yes it's underpowered relative to the 330--but that's why it costs less! The car is still quick--esp. when it gets in the heart of the rev's, and it handles like--well, like a BMW should. The ergonomics of this car (the E46) are a huge step forward from the E36.


Favorite Features

That smooth BMW in-line 6.


Suggested Improvements

None!

Review

I purchased this car brand new in 2000 and can honestly say that this has been the most expensive and poorly designed vehicle I've ever owned. I've had the following issues: suspension issues (control arms - 2 times!), HVAC, ignition switch, windown regulators, power steering pump, radio, horns, speakers go bad and require replacement. Latest issues: camshaft sensor, amplifier, and another power window regulator. Stay away from BMW. BMW North America doesn't care about their customers either. After warranty expires, DUMP THIS CAR.


Favorite Features

Great handling, fun to drive, and lots of admiring looks from most everyone who sees it. Timeless styling helps with resale! Decent car in snow, although DSC kind of makes the car slower at times when you're trying to pull out into traffic.


Suggested Improvements

If an American car was built this poorly, it would be in Consumer Reports. Unfortunately, everyone believes that BMW's are bulletproof and only America makes crap. I know believe that Germany makes crap too!

Review

Overall, the performance, roadhandling, and drivability of this model BMW is outstanding. Also, the interior design and comfort is all you could ask for from this size vehicle. The one disappointment is its poor road handling on snowy roads. My car came with 17" low profile all-season tires that track very poorly on snowy roads. Snow tires are a must in winter environments. Another negative impact of cold weather on my BMW's engine is about a 20% reduction in gas mileage.


Favorite Features

The Harmon-Kardon radio makes beautiful music. The climate controlled heater/air conditioning system handles all weather conditions very well.


Suggested Improvements

The fan for the windshield defroster should be designed to operate at some level less than full blast. The rear view mirror should be redesigned to more effectively control the glare of hi-beam headlights.
