2004 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
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.
2004 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
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.
Xenon headlights that aim automatically.
A bit more power would be nice, but I
do like the good fuel economy...
2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
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.
Engine is very powerful. Interior
with the black leather and silver
metallic trim is very elegant.
Xenon headlights and automatic
steptronic transmission should be
