2002 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third BMW . First car was a
1973 3.0 CS , next was a 1976 2002. As
a car dealer I get a company car so it's
been a long time since I actually owned
a car. After Sept 11th I decided to get
a " real car" if that makes any
sense .
I love this car, have a 5 speed w/
Sport package ,Premo pack , Cold
pack ,gray leather, Xenon lights & dark
blue met
paint.In a over a year its been
completly problem free . I had to get
snow tires living in NY but that,s all .


Best Features

The Sport package is a great option , the seats alone are a bargin . With the better tires and wheels along with the sport suspension this is a must. I also love the Xenon lights.


Worst Features

I have a Apple ipod which was I wanted to run through the stereo . I was able to use the cd changer input to hook it up. A factory aux jack would have been a lot easier . I think the new 2004 will have it.It's so nice to have 2000 songs at ny finger tips.

2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Well the car is a bit pricy compares
with its competitors. However, with
BMW's name, it is worth the money. So
far, I haven't had any problem and I
follow the manufacturer's recommended
maintenance schedule and some extra
services to keep my car in good shape.
My final word - "who doesn't like the
ultimate driving machine?"


Best Features

Great acceleration and handling, I like the steptronic technology!


Worst Features

A/C fan is too noisy and A/C isn't cold. Rear room is small. Harmon Kardon audio system is a bit weak.

Review

Wow!! This is such a great car!! I
just got it for my 16th birthday! I
drove an audi, infiniti, tsx and some
may be a little faster but i can't
tell. I like the way the steering
wheel is really tight. I got the
premium and sport package the heated
seats xenon lights leather auto wood
trim and HK sound system. All of those
options are great! You won't regret
buying this car.


Best Features

Coin holder, tight steering, acceleration, braking, and steptronic transmission.


Worst Features

More storage space. It doesn't really bug me because i don't have a lot of stuff to store but if i did it would.

Review

My car was fine for the first few
months, but I've had a problem with the
car stalling. I have a 5-speed...when
you start it for the first time and let
it idle for about 2 minutes in neutral,
by feathering the accelerator the car
stalls out. This has been happening
for months and no dealer has been able
to fix the problem!!! BMW customer
service has been no help either to date.


Best Features

Great handling, simple interior, solid ride. I love the clean lines of the car.


Worst Features

More power in the 325 would be great. Dual zone climate control would be nice.

Review

This is the third car I've ever owned,
the first two being a Datsun 210 and a
Mazda MX-6. I had an inner impulse a
couple years ago to begin contemplating
a BMW and then it just happened like
magic that the perfect vehicle appeared
on a nearby lot used with 15,000 miles
making it fit within my budget. The
vehicle not only has the balance of a 6
year - 100,000 mile warranty but
absolutely drives & looks awesome! The
manual transmission is beyond words fun
to drive and suits my assertive driving
style perfectly. If you are a BMW-
newbie like me and can get the leather
seats, do it! All in all I have never
been a "car person" but I am now!


Best Features

Gray leather seats, moonroof, gray green metallic paint, 5 speed manual transmission -- I originally only wanted the moonroof option but after getting a fully equipped vehicle I am pleased with just about all the options. Upgraded Harman Kardon stereo sounds terrific too!


Worst Features

I need to get used to the reverse gear shift being so close to first gear -- I do not like the functionality and display of the radio/cd. All vehicles need to have better fuel economy. Car companies continue to perform miserably in this area.
