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


Review

I just purchased my car and I am in
love - sounds pretty silly, but it is
the truth. The car is fun to drive and
I feel very safe in my new car. All
around the new BMW 3 series is a 10!


Best Features

interior design, comfort, driving, speed, style, character, color, safety


Worst Features

Take the cigarette lighters and ash trays out of new cars. The back seat could use more leg room. More compartments (storage). Different style of the look of dash board, radio, air conditioner etc.

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


Review

Just got my dream car. Been saving
money for 3 years and it is worth it.
Great power, ride, and comfort. I got
the cold and sport package, with xenon
adoptive light, and 18 inch tires.
Great car to ride in sunny San Diego.


Best Features

Ride, power, handling, and looks.


Worst Features

No place to put my sunglasses.

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


Review

Front differential went out at 40,000,
no driver negligence. Stalled on a cold
night. Shouldn't happen to a bimmer.
Dealer ok, manufacturer hard to deal
with on car rental for one day, well I
was less than 100 miles from home,
clerk takes no consideration of driver
age, weather, time of day, passed
rental cost back to Moses who paid,
will not let owner talk to an engineer,
to defensive about being sued, which,
if someone is killed by this on a busy
freeway, they will be.


Best Features

Tight, easily controlled, can't spin, draws attention, good pick up. No other problems


Worst Features

Left door latch hurts leg rests against it. Poor leg room rear.

Review

The driver's set is cramped. The ride
is poor. The reliability is poor. I
have had it in the shop twice in the
last two months with problems. German
engineering is no longer the best. I
plan to trade it as soon as possible
and look for a Japanese engineered and
designed car.


Best Features

I hope to get a good trade in.


Worst Features

Redesign the car's ride and handling. Also, BMW should increase the horsepower and I might reconsider it some years ahead.
