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

Review

Bought this car after owning a 95 M3 for its four doors, steptronic tranny and luxury features. Still fun to drive, always feel the difference after being in the wife's Lexus SUV. BMW engine, tranny and handling are great, but the interior and electronics are subpar. The newer ones are getting better, but I just don't think the germans know as much about electronics as the japanese do (I've owned 2 BMW's, 2 VW's, and 2 Honda's). On the flip side, BMW just feels better on the road than the japanese cars do. Overall a very positive experience!

Best Features

Handling, great blend of power and gas mileage, engine feels like a small block V8, steptronic tranny does it all, you can turn off DSC!

Worst Features

Better electronic systems in terms of reliability (had issues with one window regulator and a misbehaving fan) and features (iPod, satellite integration and how about a cd changer standard vs. $600!!!)
