2005 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Purchased this vehicle used in San Diego with 37K miles. All package options. What a fun car to drive; looks great; rides great. Mileage is good for this type of vehicle and this is a relatively heavy vehicle; you can feel the soundness of the car and you can hear it as the doors close. Best part for me is that I prefer the E46 styling over the newer look and by buying used I paid circa $20K instead of $50K plus new. Large enough for a family of four for drive arounds, and perfect for two.
Convertible top, and the overall tightness of everything - well thought through design and ergonomics.
With the top up it's tough to back up as you can't see via the rear corner sight lines of the car because that's where the structural component of the drop top is. Better radio reception. The short antenna seems to have a hard time pulling in signals. Slightly better/tougher feel to the buttons.
