2002 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

German mentality to build a car is that
they tend not to cut corners in
upcoming years and they continuously
improving nuances on their cars. I
frequently find myself more relaxed
listening to the symphony of this
inline six than music. Keep your
impulses under careful check when you
are sure that you have found a finer
car, you may find a faster one, but
good luck on the other aspects...


Best Features

Tuning of drive train, engine note, handling when driven hard, and get out of the way of the closing door...it is solid.


Worst Features

Should come with wider tires, no exeption.

2002 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased this car with 9000 miles
last month after owning a jeep for 6
years. The handling is mind-blowing
and the looks are head-turning. I
smile every time I look at this car!!!
I actually look foward to going to work
because it's such a pleasure to drive.
I bought a certified pre-owned which I
highly recommend. They really take
good care of you!


Best Features

Heated leather seats, sports package (gives the car an entirely different look), xenon headlamps, orange lights that shine down on shifter at night.


Worst Features

Cup holders are ugly and not very sturdy. Other than that, a perfect car.

2002 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought used '02 325Ci with 5K miles,
have driven another 1K. This car lives
up to the hype. Yes, there are a lot of
them, guess why? I compared the BMW
against the Audi A4, M-
B C-class and Lexus IS. As much as I
love my SLK (and kept it for the
weekends!), the BMW really begs to
be driven. I needed a usable back seat
and comfortable highway car -- the
325Ci delivers. I'm no lead foot,
and the 184hp is fine. The car's
wonderful in everyday driving. I'm sure
the M3 and 330Ci fly, but unless
your last car was a Corvette you won't
feel deprived. The coupe is stylish and
scarcer than the sedan, so the "me too"
factor isn't bad even here in southern
Cal.


Best Features

One-touch moonroof/windows; steptronic; steering wheel mounted controls; wood trim makes it feel like a luxury car, but it's far more fun to drive than the M-B C-class. None of this sounds like a big deal til you drive another car without them.


Worst Features

CD storage is lacking (the dealer said I could buy a case and clip it to the visor -- kinda lame...), need nighttime illumination for center vent control knob (okay I'm reaching, there's almost nothing I'd change)

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


Review

My third BMW. Had a 1973 3.0cs,& a 1976
2002,so I am a little biased. I think
the sport package is a must.
Snow tires are needed where I live.
It's great how entertaining the car
is,never boring.


Best Features

Engine , transmission , and suspension.


Worst Features

A aux input for my ipod.
