2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have a manual shift, and the shifting seems to be a bit rough, other than that, the car is perfect. Handling in great. Will top 110 easily, top movement is flawless and can be done at a red light if timeing is right.


Favorite Features

love the power top, you push ONE button, and it's done


Suggested Improvements

Manual shift could be smoother

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


Review

This is my first BMW and I am very pleased with the overall performance and looks of the car. I can navigate on a curvy road and still maintain intregity and speed.


Favorite Features

I love the features and the ease of programming some of the options to memory. Everything is easy to reach.


Suggested Improvements

I would not change a thing about the 2004 model.

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


Review

I'm just going to go straight to the point. I like my car and I have a-lot of fun driving it. However, there are points that one should be aware of. First, the Harmon Kardon speakers was a waste of my money. They are weak speakers. Second, the car is too low that you are likely to hit, raised manholes, rocks, metals on the street. Third, the windows rattle loud when driving fast. Fourth, the driver and passenger SIDE MIRRORS doesn't go back far enough. Fifth, the chairs are very hard and thin. Sixth, rear bumper too low and unprotected and will get easily hit by other cars especially if you live in the city.


Favorite Features

Driving experience is great.


Suggested Improvements

Improve Speakers to Bose instead of Harmon Kardon, what a waste of money! Raise the card a bit perhaps, too low. Soften the chairs. Improve side mirrors. Windows rattle when driving.

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


Review

My wife loves it. It is very important.


Favorite Features

Maybe style


Suggested Improvements

Noisy for me. Is it possible to order quetness option to reduce enzine sound and improve quietness? Maybe you think customers who like quiet cars, please go to LEXUS. I like wolf performance but looking and sounds like sheep. High performance but queit and peaceful riding.

2004 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Even though BMW exterior design continues to disappoint me, they remain the best handling, best balanced automobiles on the road today. The current 325 convertible may seem underpowered on paper, but is a joy to drive quickly, which cannot be said for some of its competitors (Audi A4, MB C series). The 325 version is reasonable value for money (I picked mine up in Europe)and drives like a BMW should. If you want a comfortable highway cruiser, or a car with all the latest gizmos, look elsewhere. If you want a car that enjoys being driven hard, and has great feedback through its brakes, steering and suspension, stick with the Bimmer.


Favorite Features

Steering, brakes, road feel


Suggested Improvements

Full size spare,four wheel drive
