2004 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Leased new - still really enjoy the vehicle - anticipate buying at the end of the 3 years. Drives smoothly w/more than enough motor to go when and where you need it. Commutes easily, highway powerful and back road perfect. X is nice in the snow - confident handling. Love the look. Feel is solid and comfortable the "leatherette" manual seats are actually quite nice and worry free. Two repairs [windshield stone at dealer and rear end collision out sourced] both done well. BMW dealer maintenance convenient w/nice loaners - and we use the free car wash Saturday AM at our dealer] Perfect two-person vehicle - back seat room larger than appears, but not expansive. Runs on premium.
Driving feel and confidence - smooth shift/ plenty of power/ control and powerful brakes. Ipod connectivity - basic audio system plenty nice for an old guy.
More interior room front and back seat - second cup holder that you can access w/the armrest down. [oh wait that's the 5 series]
