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


I am a huge BMW fan. Once you get them into your blood, they are impossible to get out of your system. This model is small with very limited rear seat room and a tiny, shallow trunk, so try it on for size. While very sophisticated technically and engineered to perfection the interior is looking dated. The 325's smaller inline 6 is a little weak down low, but is fine for passing and highway work. Very smooth powertrain, great ride, smooth in every way. The last two year's models have much more standard equipment then older models. They had standard sunroof and rain sensing wipers, CD and full power. They could use standard driver's power seat at least for this pr

Best Features

Engine smoothness, auto transmission's responsiveness and smoothness, great looks, ride, handling, quietness, standard features in later models, one touch sunroof and windows, keyless window and sunroof openening feature, warranty, first three years of service paid by BMW!

Worst Features

Standard power driver's seat, bigger trunk, bigger rear seat, More sophisticated interior design, better storage, more power from base engine. Most issues seem to be solved with the new model...sooooo......
