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


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...

and one of the best handling rides I've
had.

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had this car an lil over an year
and i don't have much to complain about
the ride is ok and the interior could
use an lil more. I onwed 6 audis from
the audi 5000 to the audi a6 the thing
i rather be better on the 3 series is
to have an "richer" interior, better
sound system(conv only) an little
easier on the bumps. by owning audis
and test driving the lexus sc430, when
i got back in my 330cic it seems plain
on the inside but its looks ten times
better the the infinite interior don't
get me wrong i love the car it has
enough power looks great tops
open/close nicely i would highly
recommend one


Best Features

Worst Features

2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Traded both my 1996 BMW 328is Coupe
and 2003 JEEP Liberty to get this
car. The car is extremely powerful
and drives with great handling.
Everything one would expect from a
BMW. Test drove an 330xi back in
December 03 in about 6 to 7 inches of
snow w/ no problems whatsoever.


Best Features

Engine is very powerful. Interior with the black leather and silver metallic trim is very elegant.


Worst Features

Xenon headlights and automatic steptronic transmission should be standard.

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I am 22 years old. I work hard every day to
drive a luxury/sport automobile. This is the
BEST BEST car I have ever owned. I have
had 2001 S4, 2002 C32, and now 2003
330Ci. The beemer has had not a single
problem in 40000 hard, hard driven miles.
My Audi and Benz were in the shop every
other week. Six sets of brakes and two new
trans later, I bought the BMW. Won't regret it
ever. Just bought new 05' 335Ci with
performance pck. Thats right, 335Ci. Pick it
up in August. People don't buy BMWs
because they know they are better than
everything else. Get sucked in, you won't
regret it.


Best Features

Handling, Acceleration, Stares, RWD, cupholders, Bulletproof Reliability and I mean bulletproof. Free Service, VALUE!!!!!!


Worst Features

Seatbelts, rear seat ingress/exit, needs Homelink & Alarm, lid for cupholders, but anything else is tedious and not worth mentioning or fixing.
