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


My wife and I purchased our '04 325i in Oct. 2008. It was a blast to drive until we sold it today. Alpine white/Montana sand leather color combo was perfect and received tons of compliments! In the 21k miles we drove it, the water pump, lower air intake boot, mirror motor, oil separator and secondary air valve all had to be replaced due to failure. Replaced due to "wear and tear" were f & r brakes, belts, window regulators, etc. Other than a few small repairs, we loved this car and honestly hated to see it go. Pick up a certified pre-owned for the best results, and if possible, one with the extended maintenance plan as these are both fully transferable! Rotate your tires every 3k!

Best Features

Handling/braking, Xenon headlights, Sport Pkg. seats (amazing bolster/thigh supports)

Worst Features

Engineering of parts...confusing climate/cruise controls.
