I wanted one and waited... and I am so
glad I have it - no matter how
difficult my day has been, I know the
drive home will be fun and carefree.
LOVE how it handles and responds.
Did I say, I love it?

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


Review

Got too sleepy driving a 97' ES300. At test drive
the S4 was fun, and A4 clutch is the easiest to use.
But the 325xi gives the best road feel and sense of
control, and is more comfortable than the X3 with
punishing ride even though it performs amazingly
for an SUV. The options make the 325xi as
exquisite as a Lexus. The 2.5L is smooth and quiet;
the car is great to drive and corner, only a bit
underpowered.
The Harman Kardon is no Mark Levinson, but it has
good tonal balance (acoutic enhancement OFF),
defined bass, good detail and dynamics, much
better than the Nakamichi upgrade on my RX300. I
finally enjoy listening to CDs in the car. Well worth
the extra cost.


Best Features

Exclusive leather, wood trim and sports package, split seats option. 4WD. Rigid chassis.


Worst Features

Clutch is tricky and too long. Gear shifting not as slick as I expected.

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


Review

The BMW exudes understated class.
Everything about the car is tastefull.
The style is classic and will still
look good in 5 years. Driving is
thoroughly satisfying. The car's
handling is precise with plenty of
power around town and also on the
highway. The car is solid. Build
quality, fit and finnish are first
rate. Dealership experience was
enjoyable and service was their top
priority.


Best Features

Sport package. Xenon headlamps. Sport seats. One touch up or down on all four windows.


Worst Features

I wish the trunk was just a bit bigger and I wish fold down rear seats were standard. I waited for the dealer to get one in with this feature but gave up waiting and bought one without. The only other thing I would prefer is that the steering wheel be a bit smaller and a bit fatter.
