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


We thoroughly enjoy our 2006 BMW 325i sedan.
Ours has a sport package, which includes larger wheels (looks nice), sport steering wheel, but most important is the sport seats.
Dual power seats with power side bolsters and manual seat bottom extenders.
Compared to our 2009 328i (Premium - no sport), the seats on the '06 are so much better.
The ride comfort isn't as good as the '09, but it's still good for a performance sedan.

The fit and finish is still good, materials are very well made and have held up well.
Paint still looks good, except for the repainted bumpers from a parking lot ding (factory paint is so much better than a body shop repair).

Overall, we're very happy!

Best Features

Handling, smooth idle, precise steering, fade resistant brakes, good looks, quality materials, low maintenance and repairs - you must keep up with maintenance or you'll pay later. Great visibility, feels like an extension of me, comfortable seats, good long distance driving car, smooth on road, lots of front leg room, good stereo, trip computer and all the nice creature comforts.

Worst Features

Needs a little more back seat leg room. Center hump is a bit tall, so car is really a 4 passenger car. A little more power would be nice - our '09 328i is a perfect mix between power and gas mileage.
