2006 BMW 3 Series Sedan 325i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought my 325i as credit union repo. We got it well under what dealers where asking for the same car. It's a blast to drive and fuel economy is good. The drawbacks are the run flat tires they are very noisy and ride rough. I put new tires on it (non run flat) and made a world of difference in handling and ride noise. yes the cup holders are a bit quirky. Overall a great purchase.


Best Features

Style and comfort


Worst Features

Get rid of the run flat tires they are no good. Better cup holders

2006 BMW 3 Series Sedan 325i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought a CPO 325i (my first "luxury car") with sport and premium packages and about 36K miles in December 2009, as it was coming off of lease and still under factory warranty/maintenance. So far, so good, although I have had several incidents with the rear passenger window staying down until the engine is turned off and re-started - I took it into the dealership and it worked perfectly so there was no way they could diagnose the problem. Anyway, the 325i sport handles very well, and has a very solid "feel." However, when I replace these tires, I will use standard rather than run flat tires as I am convinced the ride will be much smoother, even with the sport suspension.


Best Features

Handling (i.e., fun to drive), solid quality interior accessories and multiple seat adjustments are just a few of my favorite features.


Worst Features

Cup holders are a joke for a $40K+ luxury car, run flat tires leave much to be desired, and the 3-series could get better gas mileage.

Ok I get to drive and own a lot of cars but must say the 325i is fun! Cant believe it but I avg 24 mpg, yes, this is in Fl, it has a gauge and pretty much donít go under 22 nor over 24 around town and hwy, I know if this was the sport ed or a 330i it would have been a 10 down the line but it's not and will give an overall rating of 9

Review

This BMW is faster than most cars (got the 6 speed), excellent acceleration. I drove a 7 series before this, so the Sport Package and short wheelbase on the 3 ride pretty rough for my taste. The car feels like its glued to the road though. Stunning looks, very fun, Bluetooth is awesome,Sport seats too, Stock base stereo jams.


Best Features

Sports car handling, looks (inside and out), Bluetooth, Sport Seats, 17" Sport wheels, 3 stage seat warmers.


Worst Features

Rough ride with Sport Package, small trunk (but not too tiny), can't intuitively figure out the call out feature on the Bluetooth, the cruise, and the tilt telescoping steering wheel. C'mon, a chrome exhaust tip would have been proper.

Review

Door handles had to be replaced. My 6- speed manual has a 4th gear that disengages between 60 and 75km/hr. No good for Prairie winters, even with new snow tires - xdrive might be better. Vehicle is generally too light for snowy climes and icy roads. Fun in the sun, though. Great handling. Good warranty and servicing support and dealerships offer very good customer service.


Best Features

performance


Worst Features

"leatherette" seats are poor quality compared to those on the 2002 models. More storage inside.
