It's a BMW
By wrld traveler on


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


2nd Bimmer, first a '96 328is which I
loved. Decided to go for the new
design in '01 w/ the 325ci. I got one
of the first ones so I took what I
could get. Prem. pkg, auto trans., no
xenons(big disapointment!!). Great
car, handles like a dream although!
Perfect for a college student (a kid
has an M5 on campus..parents must want
him dead). NOT too fast, but not too
slow at the same time and its
extremely safe. I drove the 330ci
after much hype (sales guy was
like "this thing is a rocket, better
be careful!") my girlfriend and I were
very disapointed..we were expecting a
very fast car..even my 328is felt
faster.I will probably always stick
with the bimmers..next up is the M3
coupe w/SMG

Best Features

Handling, styling, extremely smooth engine and transmission

Worst Features

better sound system, Lumbar seats std, quicker throttle response, (lose the built-in emissions delay)wider tires, xenons std.(who wouldn't pay 500 extra for them anyway in a $36,000 car?), audible alarm system..would complain about the power, but hey, that's where the M3 comes in...
