2004 BMW 3 Series Sedan 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Almost one month old and 500 miles later. The car rides and handles great with a tight, solid and sporty feel.The car really hugs the road on turns and the slight roar of the engine enhances the performance care experience. Not a single problem to date.


Favorite Features

Xenon Headlights...well worth the extra dollars.


Suggested Improvements

Slightly larger rear seating area. Introductory video was great. Owners manual could be clearer. Psychologically wished the car had more horsepower but I would buy again even without it.

2004 BMW 3 Series Sedan 330xi AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had this car for 2500 miles now and can only say that it has the worst suspension, and drive by wire system imaginable. There is a 0.5 second delay after you hit the accelerator, and the car bounces, floats, and leans terribly regarding the suspension. The interior is nice and clean. However the performance suffers so greatly, I am going to have to upgrade both the suspension and software to make it livable. I thought it was the break in period, but alas, it's made this way. Not recommended for anyone that owned a previous (E36 model years) BMW. The XI version drives more like an SUV than a sedan. For the money, it's not worth it.


Favorite Features

Exterior and interior austere appearance


Suggested Improvements

Suspension is horrible, even embarassing. Remove the Cluth Delay Valve, shorten the differential ratios, and fix the drive by wire to allow instant throttle response. Put the driver back into BMW.

Review

Can't believe this ride! Handles great. Sport package is a must! You have to drive it to truly appreciate it. Passing by the bmw logo on your way into the house is pretty special too.


Favorite Features

Xenon lights, one touch moonroof.


Suggested Improvements

Stock sound system. Sport package should come with a spoiler.

Review

This is the car of my dreams! It handles fantastic. It accelerates so fast, yet so smooth. I drove it home from Seattle to my home 200 miles away and it was so great. I was so relaxed having the cruise control on and listening to the fantastic sound from the stereo.


Favorite Features

Steptronic transmission
