1999 BMW 3 Series 323i 4dr Sedan


One fun car! Brake dust keeps you busy cleaning every weekend. Covered maintenance was awesome. Uncovered maintenance a bit expensive. Brake job quoted as $1200 by dealer, did it myself for $220 worth of rotors. Main mechanical problem was the typical control arm bushings @$600. In dash CD has problems ejecting. Adding CD changer in trunk solved that. Stereo is weak on Bass end. Haven't had window regulator problems others describe. Maintenance still a lot cheaper than my wife's Taurus. Overall, very happy.

Best Features

Inline six engine purrs like a turbine. Handling is exceptional. Good balance of luxury and performance.

Worst Features

Console cup holders don't fit with the level of quality of the rest of the interior.
