2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased this car with 9000 miles
last month after owning a jeep for 6
years. The handling is mind-blowing
and the looks are head-turning. I
smile every time I look at this car!!!
I actually look foward to going to work
because it's such a pleasure to drive.
I bought a certified pre-owned which I
highly recommend. They really take
good care of you!


Best Features

Heated leather seats, sports package (gives the car an entirely different look), xenon headlamps, orange lights that shine down on shifter at night.


Worst Features

Cup holders are ugly and not very sturdy. Other than that, a perfect car.

2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought used '02 325Ci with 5K miles,
have driven another 1K. This car lives
up to the hype. Yes, there are a lot of
them, guess why? I compared the BMW
against the Audi A4, M-
B C-class and Lexus IS. As much as I
love my SLK (and kept it for the
weekends!), the BMW really begs to
be driven. I needed a usable back seat
and comfortable highway car -- the
325Ci delivers. I'm no lead foot,
and the 184hp is fine. The car's
wonderful in everyday driving. I'm sure
the M3 and 330Ci fly, but unless
your last car was a Corvette you won't
feel deprived. The coupe is stylish and
scarcer than the sedan, so the "me too"
factor isn't bad even here in southern
Cal.


Best Features

One-touch moonroof/windows; steptronic; steering wheel mounted controls; wood trim makes it feel like a luxury car, but it's far more fun to drive than the M-B C-class. None of this sounds like a big deal til you drive another car without them.


Worst Features

CD storage is lacking (the dealer said I could buy a case and clip it to the visor -- kinda lame...), need nighttime illumination for center vent control knob (okay I'm reaching, there's almost nothing I'd change)

2002 BMW 3 Series Coupe 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've owned my 325Ci for just over a
year and I love the car. Performs
great and makes those curves in the
road straight. Very solid car.
Driving this car has spoiled me and I
can't imagine driving anyhting else. I
do want more power though. 330 would
be nice but can you say M3? Mmmmm.
Only problems I've had with the car is
the weather stripping in the door
popped out and fell inside the door.
Also sometimes the door locks have
malfunctioned and I've been locked in
the car. Have an appointment next week
to get them fixed.


Best Features

Xenon lights and heated seats. WELL worth getting!


Worst Features

At highway speeds, there is more wind noise than you would expect with this class of car. Inside the car is very turbulant with the windows down or moonroof open. I'd suggest something to reduce that and make the open air drives more peaceful.
