It simply glides
By Brian from Indiana on


2004 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Became 3rd owner of a 2004 BMW 330ci with 26k miles in March of 2008. I fell in love with BMW during my first test drive. Powerful acceleration at all speeds. Goes from 60 to 100 without feeling anything. Smooth, quiet, amazing handling/cornering; it simply glides. Be prepared to donate some organs to service and maintain. At 30k miles it needed rear brake pads ($250), alignment ($100), replace driver side door lock actuator ($800), replace throttle boot ($200).

Best Features

Gorgeous design, handling, acceleration, comfort

Worst Features

Takes a PhD to change the clock! Also, I recommend you buy the XI model with AWD if you ever have to drive it on snow. Seriously 2 inches of snow and the CI model can't pull away from a street curb. Very low to the ground.
