This is the entry point BMW, the 2006 325i.
You can get them cheap.
But this was the 1st year of the E90.
This model was ambitious, alot of new technologies were introduced.
The exterior redefined what cars look like.
This car has a huge battery for the mind numbing amount of electronics.
So the thing to keep in mind was it was the 1st year.
Also know that BMW mechanic rates start at $90/hr.
But the great thing is that all the diagnostic and repair software the dealers originally used is freely available to everyone on the web.
I've diag problems, the VANOS and coil issues we've seen on here are extremely easy to fix.
I have a fully loaded 2006 325i with no faults, 78K!
The greatest engine in the industry, its really true.
Great suspension and the adaptive bi Xenon headlights, having headlights follow the road and automatically turn from low to high beam depending on lighting and incoming traffic is amazing, the angel eye feature is also cool
Most of the known issues in this car have been fixed.
Again this was the 1st year in a pretty revolutionary car.
The front and rear spoiler really improve the look of the car.
