By Henry T on


2006 BMW 3 Series 325i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Good power from the V6, smooth flexible engine, fun shifting 6-sp manual, firm and controlled ride, great steering feel and handling, beautiful inside and out, efficient interior space for its exterior dimensions, quality interior materials, comfortable (especially the sports package seats), vastly improved handling with aftermarket lightweight 18" wheels with real non-runflat tires. Decent MPG for car's size and engine (23mpg overall in 50/50 city/highway spirited driving in Chicago).

Best Features

Power, smoothness, looks, handling, driver's seating comfort, interior quality.

Worst Features

Get rid of runflats. I installed regular tires on lighter-weight aftermarket 18" wheels and acceleration/handling/MPG improved. Longer lasting headlight bulbs, both low beams burned out at about 20k miles (replaced under warranty).
