2001 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Bought the car for the wife, coming
off a 3 year lease @2.9%, on a BMW CPO
program. Have had to take back to
dealership twice, once to replace a
faulty intake cam sensor, and once for
some minor adjustments. Handling is
impeccable, and power is good for
184HP, but wish they would offer more
power without having to upgrade to a
330. Haven't pushed the top end, but
expect it's more than I would want.
Dealership has been fair to deal with,
but I just don't have that warm fuzzy
feeling yet. Brake dust, of course,
is an unsolveable problem.

Best Features

Dust is a curse, the brake performance is world class. Styling and fun to drive quotient are over the top. Seals and stability of the conv top make it feel like your in a hardtop. Memory seats are cool; I'm 5'11", my wife is 5'0".

Worst Features

The Germans can build a car of this quality, but they can't fix the brake dust? Gimme a break; they don't wanna fix it; they'd rather sell brake jobs instead! Need some "tweakage options" to boost acceleration.
