2002 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought the car when it was 8 months old w/ 3500 miles and have enjoyed it ever since. I bought snow tires for the winter, and use the summer tires at other times for performance. In 6 years of ownership, I've had the muffler replaced twice for noise (worked fine), the cd changer replaced for skipping, a tension pulley replaced for recall, and the control arms replaced once. This car is still a lot of fun to drive and it's never left me stranded. Occasionally the front headlight doesn't come on right away, but it always does eventually. I think it's a great mix of performance and value, and I've been extremely satisfied. I'm 6'4", and it's tough to find a comfortable car - this is one!
Interior room, rain sensing wipers, good gas mileage, glass rear window in the convertible.
Radio for this year did not include aux input, I think that's been remedied. Jack with the car does not seem sturdy enough.
