2002 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

It was either this or the A4 1.8T at
the time after narrowing the field but
I got a better deal on the 325, plus
the 6-cyl had a better feel to it. The
325 handles great in all kinds of
conditions (doesn't snow so much in Los
Angeles but I've driven in rain,
traffic jams, mountain roads, city
streets). No problems yet, just
routine maintenance & replacement of
back brakes (probably due to freeway
congestion & starts/stops). It's hard
to describe, but it feels more solid &
glued to the road, quicker and safer
than any other sedan you might
otherwise buy.


Best Features

The drive is unlike anything else in the categegory.


Worst Features

Folding rear seat & leather should be standard. Also, an in-dash multi-CD player should be standard.

Review

I have a 2001 325 (which I think is
better looking than the later
facelifted models), and really enjoy
it. I picked it up in Germany, and
drove it on the autobahns for 2 weeks--
I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage
of BMW's european delivery program. The
car has been absolutely reliable-- but
there have been a few rattles that
bugged me (I fixed them myself w/ some
felt).
options
5 speed manual
Cold-weather packaged
moonroof
leather
sports package

Get these while you can-- as you can
see from the new 7 and 5 series, BMWs
are becoming quite ugly!


Best Features

-feel of shifter -steering precision -smoothness of engine -interior design (one of the best looking car interiors ever designed).


Worst Features

-Dealer serice is generally poor (and the survey process needs to be fixed) -seats should have lumbar support standard (even a manual knob-type of adjustment)

Review

This is my third BMW . First car was a
1973 3.0 CS , next was a 1976 2002. As
a car dealer I get a company car so it's
been a long time since I actually owned
a car. After Sept 11th I decided to get
a " real car" if that makes any
sense .
I love this car, have a 5 speed w/
Sport package ,Premo pack , Cold
pack ,gray leather, Xenon lights & dark
blue met
paint.In a over a year its been
completly problem free . I had to get
snow tires living in NY but that,s all .


Best Features

The Sport package is a great option , the seats alone are a bargin . With the better tires and wheels along with the sport suspension this is a must. I also love the Xenon lights.


Worst Features

I have a Apple ipod which was I wanted to run through the stereo . I was able to use the cd changer input to hook it up. A factory aux jack would have been a lot easier . I think the new 2004 will have it.It's so nice to have 2000 songs at ny finger tips.

Review

Wow!! This is such a great car!! I
just got it for my 16th birthday! I
drove an audi, infiniti, tsx and some
may be a little faster but i can't
tell. I like the way the steering
wheel is really tight. I got the
premium and sport package the heated
seats xenon lights leather auto wood
trim and HK sound system. All of those
options are great! You won't regret
buying this car.


Best Features

Coin holder, tight steering, acceleration, braking, and steptronic transmission.


Worst Features

More storage space. It doesn't really bug me because i don't have a lot of stuff to store but if i did it would.
