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


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.
