2003 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought this car over a year ago and have had no major problems. I bought it Certified Pre-owned from a BMW dealer, paid a slight premium because of it, but well worth it. I can't stress enough how much I love this car. The handling is amazing, the beauty of the exterior is flashy and immediately recognized, and the interior is sleek and classy. Corner handling is great, and the sound of the 6 cylinder engine revving up is well worth the hype. The only downside is a few awkward features inside, such as the second cup holder. It is located right below the center armrest, and the center storage holds, at best, a wallet and pad of paper. Hardly reason enough not to love the car though.
The handling is a dream. The steering wheel feels great too. The stock stereo system (not Harmon-Kardon) isn't bad either. The sports package makes the car look much better as well. The MPG is also pretty good (20 mpg avg, but I drive aggressively). I love the memory seats too.
The material that is used on center console and inside door handles isn't very durable. It is starting to flake off. Also you can't turn on the rear defroster without having the air blowing. The center glove box is puny. Nothing at all major though. BMW nailed it.
