Driving is fun again.
By Don on


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


Having to drive many Kilometers in and around Calgary Alberta, one quickly discovers the absolute joy this car provides to the driver! I never thought a car could be so fun to drive, no matter what the weather or traffic volume presents. The feel of the road and instant communication between driver and machine...the instant response of the 184 BHP at the wheels, and for an allwheel drive vehicle still in it's break in period, the power and performance is exciting. BMW should have put a speed minder as one feels the car get smoother at speeds 145KM's/Hr., making it very easy to exceed the speed limits here on our 110 KM/Hr highways.

Best Features

Self leveling/auto Xenon's, Rain sensing wipers, auto opening windows/sunroof on warm days, the power adjusting/ memory seats (comfy) which recline far enough back for my taller wife (she loves it), on board computer which monitors outside temp, average fuel consumption

Worst Features

I've heard that Germans smoke while they drive to work and we drink Starbucks, so I see that the cup holders have been improved slightly in the new 2006 3 Series, would like an upright cargo net for the trunk, not just a tie down version.
