Great car if you can afford it

2001 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Car is fun to drive, comfortable, and good looking. I can't say enough good about this car. Little thoughtful features on the car make it fantastic to own, like the passenger rearview mirror folds down in reverse for parallel parking, there's a flashlight in the glove box charged off the car and the car comes from the factory already set up for a roof rack (my "official" BMW rack doesn't touch the paint). Big things that are nice are traction control (saved my behind in the snowy/crap weather here) & heated seats. Had to have one window motor replaced (under warranty thankfully). Maintenance is very pricey too ($800 for brakes, $100 oil change), as is the premium fuel.

Favorite Features

Seat heat has 3 settings and heats up fast. Engine has more than adequate hpower/torque for passing/merging/racing honda punks. Handles better than expected in winter. Little design features are extremely practical and useful. Other than window motor,never had any mechanical problems with this car.

Suggested Improvements

More or better storage for regular stuff (sunglasses etc.) & fold down rear seats would be nice. Front cupholder is a little weird to use with two cups. Car is very expensive to maintain, and requires premium fuel, but I guess that's to be expected with any premium type car.
