2005 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
You will not find a similar package of handling, power, space, luxury and economy. Yes, it's not a drag racer, not a 48" TV hauler, not a Cadillac, not an ultra luxurious butt massage machine and not a 50mpg machine - BUT it's an extremely well executed compromise of all of the above that no other car I've driven or owned car copy. Read reviews of all competitors and you will find that they all compare with BMW 3-series - it's not a coincidence.
Driving experience and handling, Sport package, H/K stereo, chassis stiffness, stering feel, looks, that smooth and powerful (for a 2.5L) I6 engine.
Wish I could get it with the 3.0L engine, but not sold in the US :(
