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


Bought it brand new, excellent handling and acceleration. As of 07/2007, 60k miles and exterior (metallic blue) looks like new. Interior wood trim and leather trim has held up, although some minor fading/peeling on plastic accents. Had to replace all 4 window rotors within first year and repaired sunroof twice. Brake dust shows daily. Nightmare problems starting at 55k miles, had to replace serpentine belt, battery, throttle, DSC control unit (2k out of pocket, warranty expired). Will not purchase another BMW, although performance is superb, reliability and quality is not favorable. Servicing and repair expenses too high.

Best Features

Handling, acceleration, steptronic, interior look, exterior design is timeless.

Worst Features

Quality, reliability, more interior room, better MPG.
