2004 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


BMW Certified with 26k miles. Driving to work has never been so fun (even with traffic and a manual transmission)! The sport suspension is a bit stiff but not M3 stiff. Mileage is good (22 in city driving and 31.5 on highway; the 6th gear really does well for road trips). Corners like a go-cart; you point it, it goes there. Stereo system needs to be totally revamped; limited improvement by adjusting controls. Very noticeable tire noise with OEM Continentals (I look forward to changing them). Very clean, classy interior layout. Sport suspension, low profile tires and front facing give a very athletic look. Short throw shifter is a hoot. Small car, so spend some time in it prior to buying.

Best Features

Rain sensing wipers are perfect, auto adjusting radio volume, 3rd gear for passing at highway speeds. Handling of course and 0-60 in the low-mid 6 second range. BMW solid build quality. Titanium metalic silver paint in georgeous in the sun.

Worst Features

Eliminate different sized tires (which spare do you carry?), dump HK stereo!, standard lumbar support, increase storage space, accessible cup holder #2, add fold down rear seats, increase cabin size, MP3 compatible, rear side curtain airbags standard, enlarge side view mirrors.
