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

Review

My wife & I bought our blue 325iT certified pre-owned and have been extremely happy with the car. (And at CPO pricing, almost a bargain.) The car is as fun to drive as the 325 sedan and even sticks better in the curves due to its slight rearward weight bias and lowered suspension. At freeway speeds, we get 32 mpg! (City fuel economy, tho, is a poor 18 mpg.) Rear seat area is adequate but not spacious but we find the rear cargo area just fine (if you need to carry a 70-inch TV, maybe you need a bigger wagon). The Premium Package is superb - very luxurious and power-everything - get it. Fit and finish are also superb and our reliability has been pretty rock solid. A fabulous car.

Favorite Features

Handling dynamics; willing and peppy engine; lux interior with premium package; very practical and useful wagon capacity; surprisingly good fuel economy; IMHO best-looking sport wagon out there.

Suggested Improvements

Yes, the cupholders do stink; if you buy new, the MSRP is too steep (buy CPO!); man oh man would I love the 3-liter engine from the 330 dropped in this car; the interior cubbyholes and storage bins are stingy.
