Still great - except run flats?
By Robola2 on


2006 BMW 3 Series 325xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


After nearly 10K miles I stll have a very positive assessment of this car with the exception of the run flat tires. I had to wait nine days for a replacement of a 17" Bridgestone that was ruined by running over a bolt. I have learned that frquently monitoring correct air pressure is critical and any operation of the vehicle at incorrect pressures will distort the tires and make them permanently very noisy. This seriously detracts from the overall driving experience.

Best Features

Sports package, xenon adaptive headlights, configurable cargo area. Handling, build quality, overall driving experience.

Worst Features

I have doubts about the practicality of run flat tires. Good in theory, but in practice the technology is problematic.
