2006 BMW 3 Series 325xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This was my first choice purchase and after looking at many, many competitors I know I was right to buy this great, great automobile. It's the perfect combination of luxury, style and performance. The iDrive is a good option, despite what many reviewers say about it, and make sure to get the Sirius satellite radio option. The traction and handling available from the all wheel x- drive option is perfect for Illinois winters.
x-Drive, Sirius satellite radio, iDrive, heated power front seats.
Simpler iDrive interface - don't play with the iDrive in traffic. It's just too complicated.
