Still fun, but expensive
By DennisGNY on


2003 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


One of the car's best features was BMW's all inclusive warranty (I also was able to buy a second year coverage). While I didn't have any major complaints the first year, BMW paid for thousands of dollars in parts and labor (mostly electronic). Fun to drive, very expensive to fix. Worn parts like springs, bushings & brakes should have lasted much longer. Based on my first two years experience I purchased a third party warranty to cover the next 37,000 miles. Don't buy a BMW without a BMW warranty. None the less the car is fun to drive, performance is excellent and you can feel the assuredness that is built into the car. Put on the Ray Bans, find an open road, drop the top and crank up the stereo.

Best Features

Outside styling, smooth acceleration, quick stopping brakes, stereo, steering, road handling.

Worst Features

Front seat's a bit cramped. I think they made all the improvements in the new model.
