2001 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I have to say that this is the best
driving car I have ever owned. I
bought a 2001 steel metallic blue 325i
with sport package, premium package,
heated seats, Xenon and purposely
ordered a 5-speed. Believe it or not,
only 1 in 10 3-series made are
manuals. Why would you get an
automatic for the "Ultimate Driving
Machine"? The transmission on this
machine is so smooth, it is just short
of orgasmic! If you like to drive,
buy a 3-series manual transmission,
you'll save $1500 as well.

Best Features

Looks-This is simply one of the best looking production cars on the road. Transmission-The smoothest, quietest, best enginneered ride there is. Fit/Finish-There simply is no substitute for German engineering. Handling-Sport package gives you Porsche-like cornering.

Worst Features

The only possible improvement you could make to this car is more power. If you have the means, upgrade to a 330i or better yet, the M3. For the money, the 325i still has 187 HP and is adequate for most driving situations. The ride and quality more than make up for the lack of power.
