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


Review

According to the automotive press,
this car is the standard for
performance sedans and I would have to
agree. The car drives like it's on
rails and there is constant power
throughout the pedel. The leatherette
is good enough that I don't even tell
people that it's fake. I like the
smooth shifts and feedback from the
engine. This is a true drivers care.


Best Features

Handling, smooth shifting auto tranny, and sterring wheel audio controls.


Worst Features

The base stereo stinks. One would think that a 10 speaker system would sound better than it does. An outside temperature guage should be standard. Relocate the trunk release botton to the dash. More back seat leg room.

Review

Have owned 325's, A4, & Passat in past
and this car is simply the best. When
compared to TL, G35, & even A4 it
seems expensive at first, until you
drive it for a few days. Sticks to
the road with minimal road noise,
doesn't give you a back/buttache on
long trips and still provides the
panache of a BMW. Power is steady to
redline with tire grip and brakes to
give you confidence to take on any
corner and have the ability to correct
any driver mistake. I have 12,000
miles on mine with no problems to
date. Still have not driven it in
snow but it drives like it's on rails
thru heavy rain. Xenon lamps are
worth the extra expense.


Best Features

Simple interior, clean lines inside and out. I've averaged 26-28 mpg with alot of hwy miles and minimal A/C use. The styling of this model is top- notch but I'm afraid of what the future holds in regard to styling. I love the fact that there is no torque- steer under heavy accel;just rockets ahead.


Worst Features

Maybe this is greedy, but I'd love this car to have about 40 more horses. Homelink, XM/Sirius radio, floormats, and leather-wrapped steering wheel should be standard on a car costing $42,000 plus. A/C is a little weak on really hot days, paint on hood chips/scratches too easily. HK radio so-so.

Review

I bought my new 330i 6 weeks ago and
have loved every minute driving it.
This car is definately the car for
those who like to drive.


Best Features

I'm 6'4" and there is plenty of leg room. I love the 6 speed manual trans. and the handling is supreme.


Worst Features

Better interior design. Get rid of some ash trays and make some useful storage compartments and/or better cupholder design.
