2005 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I have added a second BMW to my stable and this one was a gamble. 146k miles but it looks like it just left the showroom. How many cars can still handle like new after this kind of mileage?

Reviewers complaining about their car turning off or tires that need replacing or khigh cost of oem parts should get a clue.

Get a good mechanic. Buy tires when worn ( hey it's not unusual), check into replacement parts if genuine BMW or oem parts give you $ agita.

What about the guy that just figured out that a rear wheel drive sucks in snow??
Hey, ever heard of the all wheel drive xi model???


You want a cushy drive?
Get a bigger
car but don't try to compare these to Japanese cars

Well spoken. Anyone can buy a BMW, there's no IQ test, there should be, but there's not. If you don't know what a rotor is, or why it needs to be turned, don't buy a BMW. Sorry it's the wrong car for many folks. I'm sorry you're jealous, but buy a book and learn a little about cars first. Oil change at the dealership, $110 dollars. Fun in driving, priceless.
