2001 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Bought the car for the wife, coming
off a 3 year lease @2.9%, on a BMW CPO
program. Have had to take back to
dealership twice, once to replace a
faulty intake cam sensor, and once for
some minor adjustments. Handling is
impeccable, and power is good for
184HP, but wish they would offer more
power without having to upgrade to a
330. Haven't pushed the top end, but
expect it's more than I would want.
Dealership has been fair to deal with,
but I just don't have that warm fuzzy
feeling yet. Brake dust, of course,
is an unsolveable problem.
Dust is a curse, the brake performance
is world class. Styling and fun to
drive quotient are over the top.
Seals and stability of the conv top
make it feel like your in a hardtop.
Memory seats are cool; I'm 5'11", my
wife is 5'0".
The Germans can build a car of this
quality, but they can't fix the brake
dust? Gimme a break; they don't wanna
fix it; they'd rather sell brake jobs
instead! Need some "tweakage options"
to boost acceleration.
