Fun to drive but frequent fixes

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


I purchased this 325i new in Oct. 2005 as a 2006 model. High on fun to drive meter but too many serious repairs. The car was great until about 75K miles. From 75k to 129k ignition coil failures, head bolt replacements, chipping paint, window motor failure, radio LED failure and sticky door handles. However I still love the car but not inclined to purchase another. I also had a 94 325 and a 97 525 which had less electronics but were more reliable.

Best Features

Handling, smooth reving engine, excellent braking

Worst Features

Get rid of half the electronics and focus on durable drivetrain and suspension.
