2004 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I've been driving BMW 5 series for years ; purchased new. When my son was turning 16, I wanted a safe and reliable and let's face it, a hot car...you're only 16 once :-).
I located a great priced 2004 325ci, red, with 40K miles in 2009; I made the deal and brought it home. I had an option to purchase the same car albeit blue with the CPO warranty but they wanted 2K more and I said no...big mistake.
My whole family really likes this car...sporty, peppy, looks great, etc.
But...I purchased the car for 13K and put 7K into it. I belive the other two previous owners just didn't keep up with maintenance or it was listed as a lemon. Once I got beyond all the repairs, awesome; we'll keep the car
Looks, ride, sporty, split 40/60 rear seat, sunroof, auto back slide out windows, etc.
Don't really like not having access to the second cup holder without raising the arm rest but that's trivial.
