2003 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I traded my 328Ci coupe for a
325CiC convertible. I was afraid I'd
miss the extra horsepower of the
328, but can barely tell the difference.
I was able to get a loaded 325CiC for
the price of a basically equiped
330CiC. The only shortcoming I can
think of is that you can't get
adjustable lumbar support, not even

be standard on a car in this class. It
is extremely fun to drive, has a
wonderful exhaust sound, seems
much smoother and quieter than my
coupe, and gets better gas mileage.
All in all I'm very satisfied.
Of course my favorite feature is the
top. The exterior and interior design

quality of materials are first rate.
The door pockets should be lined, as
the speakers vibrate any CD's stored
