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


Review

I absolutely love this car. I've owned
it for only 3.5 months, but its my
second BMW (I also own a 2002 X5), and
this is one of the most enjoyable cars
I've ever driven. I wish they offered
the M3 in an AWD version, as I would
have bought that for the extra power;
but don't let the stated hp mis-lead
you, as this car provides more than
enough acceleration to make for a very
enjoyable ride. I shopped this against
the Audi A4 and A6 Quatro's and the
Infinity AWD model, but you simply
can't beat BMW on performance and
handling - I highly recommend this
car.


Worst Features

The placement of the second cupholder is my biggest pet peeve about this car. Its placed in such a location as to require the movement of the armrest in order for you to use it - for a car of this calibar, one would expect the BMW engineers to be a little more creative.

Review

The BMW XI is an ubeleivably good
handling car. The sport package is a
must though. Without it you can feel
that the car is a station wagon in
corners, but with the sport package the
ability of the car to carve a corner
even after going beyond the tire's
ability to grip is breathtaking. It
may not be a rocket ship in the
straight lines, but if the road is
snaking nice and tight, that WRX can't
get away.


Best Features

The auto-aiming Xenon lights are pretty cool, and the Harmon Kardon stereo is pretty impressive for a factory unit. How about 32 MPG!!?? I got 32 mpg for one tank while cruising at an even 59 mph all day. I average about 25 mpg.


Worst Features

The only thing I don't like is the fact that I have to pull the door release twice to open the door. Not a bad list after over 12000 miles.

Review

My wife loves it. It is very important.


Best Features

Maybe style


Worst Features

Noisy for me. Is it possible to order quetness option to reduce enzine sound and improve quietness? Maybe you think customers who like quiet cars, please go to LEXUS. I like wolf performance but looking and sounds like sheep. High performance but queit and peaceful riding.

Review

This car is glued to the road. I
didn't want an SUV, yet I needed some
cargo space and all wheel drive, and a
Subaru just didn't do much for me. As
soon as I drove the BMW I was hooked.
It has a great stereo, decent cargo
capacity with the seats folded down,
and has been getting over 25 MPG. And
the handling! I live in the mountains,
and the car is just amazing. Even when
going into a turn very hot, as long as
you keep your foot on the gas pedal,
the sliding is minimal. Truely
amazing. If you chicken out and let
off the gas, it will slide though. I
have no regrets.


Best Features

Xenon headlights that aim automatically. Auto wipers.


Worst Features

A bit more power would be nice, but I do like the good fuel economy...
