Performance machine, not speed machine

Vehicle

2006 BMW 3 Series 325Ci 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

This car performs wonderfully. Tight precise steering and cutting corners at least is to be expected. The automatic transmission makes it pretty slow. It is probably quick enough for most average drivers and daily commutes, but if you're looking for a thrill, this car is not thrilling. Inside, it is spacious and pretty. The sound system could use a big upgrade, but it's OK. If you put the top up/down while people are in the back, it hits them in the head. Gas mileage is very poor for this type of car. The sport mode is good. There's a big aftermarket for performance parts. I would recommend this car if you're an average driver looking for a little fun when you want, but not for thril-seekers.

Favorite Features

The tight, precise handling and steering, excellent performance. Great sunday cruiser.

Suggested Improvements

Make it faster. Give it more curves. Remove the ugly bar that bumps out of the back of the top. Better sound system. Make the doors easier to open w/out smacking car next to you. BETTER GAS MILEAGE, PLEASE. Auxiliary jack anyone?
