2005 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

My experience with this car has been both thrilling and disappointing. My complaint is that the front end is too low and scrapes against the speed bumps in my parking garage. I had a Chrysler Sebring some years ago that was lower and although there were scratches on the underbelly it didn't do any further damage. Unfortunately, the plastic in this car is inferior and has ripped loose three times within the last four monthes. First, the front bumper had to be replaced when the plastic brackets snapped off at a cost of over $800 to me. The second time, the temperature sensor came loose and scraped the street until the wires were stripped bare. It's now happened again!

Favorite Features

The drive is exhilarating.

Suggested Improvements

The undercarriage must be redesigned to handle the stress of scraping the road. The plastic frays shockingly too readily!
