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

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


Review

This car is glued to the road. I didn't want an SUV, yet I needed some cargo space and all wheel drive, and a Subaru just didn't do much for me. As soon as I drove the BMW I was hooked. It has a great stereo, decent cargo capacity with the seats folded down, and has been getting over 25 MPG. And the handling! I live in the mountains, and the car is just amazing. Even when going into a turn very hot, as long as you keep your foot on the gas pedal, the sliding is minimal. Truely amazing. If you chicken out and let off the gas, it will slide though. I have no regrets.


Favorite Features

Xenon headlights that aim automatically. Auto wipers.


Suggested Improvements

A bit more power would be nice, but I do like the good fuel economy...

Review

Traded both my 1996 BMW 328is Coupe and 2003 JEEP Liberty to get this car. The car is extremely powerful and drives with great handling. Everything one would expect from a BMW. Test drove an 330xi back in December 03 in about 6 to 7 inches of snow w/ no problems whatsoever.


Favorite Features

Engine is very powerful. Interior with the black leather and silver metallic trim is very elegant.


Suggested Improvements

Xenon headlights and automatic steptronic transmission should be standard.
