My Take on early E46 productions
By sheggaw on
2000 BMW 3 Series 323Ci 2dr Coupe
We bought this car used at 30K on it. Very good condition at the time. Several warranty works were done to it even before we had got it. Did not get that info until I took it for another warranty work. Now, transmission is out at only 64.5K on it, 2 Years after we had it. We are BMW devotees and do own other BMWs classic to modern. But this one has pushed us to the limit. To boot to that, BMW N.A is not a help at all. That 800 number is a joke, the staff is untrained & unqualified. Bottom lin is that BMW is not what it was used ot be. A car company with great reputation and great cars is in demise. No customer support, no reliable production. I will probably end up not buying another one.
Comfort features (seats), leg space, cargo space, performance (steering response, braking, stock suspension system).
RELIABILITY! Make them like they used to be in the 90's. Electrical system (very erratic) unnecessary complication of remote control and other aux equipments. Climate Control should be able to be turned off permanently and turned on only when needed
