Still a car of aspiration
By kishore on


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


I was going to buy a Passat- my wife
liked the Bimmer. Guess what happened?

It still turns heads. A cardiologist we
know complimented us on our choice.

It drives like the premium car it is.
The exterior and interior appearance
and finish are great (of course), the
in-line six is sweet, responsive and
torquey, and the steering, handling,
suspension and brakes are outstanding.
A full roster of luxury amenities are
available. Back seat and trunk space
are adequate, not generous. Fuel
economy is decent. Sticker shock gave
way to a warm glow. Isn't that what a
car of aspiration should do?

Best Features

Safety- All wheel drive, stability and traction control, ABS, xenon lights, air-bags galore. Solid fit and finish. Not a rattle anywhere no matter where you go. Ride, handling, steering, brakes all top notch.

Worst Features

BMW needs to re-evaluate its styling as times change. I would work on the rear end rather than the perfectly proportioned front. Rear view cameras should be offered soon. The 2.5-liter- six is great but a little more grunt and oomph is always welcome.
