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


This is a nice car, but lacks the fit
and finish expected in a
car of this price. There are
numerous squeaks and rattles
that are quite annoying. It is fun to
drive, lacks power
in the low revs, but around 3500RPM it
picks up nicely. One major complaint is
the Auto-Manual shifter. To upshift you
push forward, and pull it
back for downshifting. This seemed
backwards to me. Only trouble I had is
a peice of door trim came loose, and
the shade for the moonroof came off
it's track once. Both issues were fixed
by the dealer under warranty and
without hassle. Overall, it's a good
car, but a little overpriced for the

Best Features

It drives and handles nicely, looks good too.

Worst Features

Fit and Finish. BMW should pay more attention to detail, especially when it comes to how things fit together. Everything squeaks in this car when you drive down even a mildly rough surface, but not in my friends $20,000 truck. That's sad.
