2003 BMW 3 Series Sedan 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

So far I've been back to the dealer for: bad smell coming from the A/C, Alarm not arming, Passanger one-touch window not working properly, Trunk opening by itself, Rear tow hook loose, passenger seat belt not locking, turning signal light loose, panic alarm malfunctioning, Jack broke while changing flat tire, remote key's not functioning the vehicle also staled out a few times, the car sometimes shakes alot when first starting and lasts about a minute, I had to bring the car in for a recall on the electronic control unit, and a few other things.


Worst Features

Overall Quality. Dealer's should pick up car for service and drop off when completed.

Review

power window regulators continually go bad (front and back), speaker trims break (cosmetic issue) in the doors (front). I'm tired of windows that won't go up or down without things breaking (breaking plastic, ginding sounds, and power windows completely inop). - "Regulator", as the shop personell blaim, needs redesigned.


Best Features

handeling, performance and design (except as stated above).

Review

The handling, breaking, solid feel is just remarkable. The others just did not measure up. I drove the automatic with a bunch of features but opted for the manual with NO options. I guess I am a bit old school but I love the control and feel that manual gives. I would have taken a manual with the premium package but none where on the lot. In the end, I loved the car more for its feel than for its options. It shifts smoothly and accelerates very well. Can go from 60 to 80 mph with a slight touch. It is solid. The best car I have driven.


Best Features

Ride, handling, feel. A true joy to drive.


Worst Features

Cup holders in the back. An mp3 hookup.

Review

Had a 3000 Bavaria thatI bought used. Sold the Bavaria for more than I paid for it and went the station wagon route. Kid grew up and we needed a new car for just the two of us. Heard a radio ad for BMW 3 Series and the old memory cells kicked in with exciting remeberences of winding country roads taken with no thought of using the brake pedal, but just hanging on through the curves. Made a phone call to the BMW dealership, faxed over credit info, and leased a 325i, sight unseen. The first time in it was driving it off the lot to home. The only problem we have is choosing who gets to drive it, and who gets stuck with the Lincoln.
