2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan
Pros: auto wipers
Cons: My car is a lemon.
Advice: Buy a Lexus.My new 2006 325i is spending it's 4th day in the service dept at BMW of Austin. The first time it was towed in, I had the harness replaced. My car suddenly died outside of Austin. Roadside assistance took 3 different tow trucks to get the car, because it locked up and shut down in park. Luckily we were on a dirt road, not the highway. The next visit was for an oil pressure issue. And it is back again for the same issue.
2002 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan
Pros: Performance, Dynamic Stability Control
Cons: Quality, Repair Frequency & Cost, Customer Service
Advice: Do not buy this vehicle unless your ready to fork out a bundle in repairs.This vehicle has been in and out of the dealership consistently over the last 3 years, has left us stranded on several occassions, a/c stopped cooling and most recently 3 of the 4 window regulators went out on the same day. All this on a car just a little over 3 years old with 60K miles. Total cost of repairs this year so far have totaled $3K. When I contacted the Corporate Offices of North America, I was simply advised to purchase another BMW. The great performance, style, and status symbol this vehicle envokes is just not worth the money spent on repairs and poor customer service. They tout their 4 yrs/50,000 mile warranty; however, the trouble begins after it expires.

Pros: Excellent ride and road feel.
Cons: No complaints.
Advice: Many models, so decide what is most important: price, hp, 2D/4D, etc.There is just no way to describe the fun this car is to drive: go test drive it.

2002 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan
Pros: Driving the car - it feels solid, powerful and in control at all times
Cons: The lack of a fully automatic climate control system
Advice: Go for it and enjoy driving one of the best cars on the roadI purchase a 2003 BMW 325i just over 5 months ago and have found the car to be a real pleasure to drive. I test drove all of the major competitors, and found that the BMW offered the best driving experience ….. and for about the same monthly lease as many non-luxury cars. Inside the car looks outstanding. Unlike BMWs of the 90s, todays BMW 3 series has the same high quality interior as its larger (and more expensive) siblings. One of the most impressive interior elements is the automatic transmission – you are provided with the easy of an automatic with the sporty appearance of a manual. BMW did a great job with the details. Driver controls are easy to operate for the most part, and the locations are always easy to find. Changes I would like to see in the next BMW would be higher quality sun visors (the standard plastic visor is very disappointing in a car of this price), improved functionality with the heating and a/c controls (a fully automatic climate control system should be standard), an reduction is the heavy feeling of the doors (while their design allows for easy closing with an impressive sound, the heavy doors can be difficult to open from the inside). If you’re considering the BMW 3 series I would strong recommend it. I’m very happy with mine and find it to be a real pleasure to drive.
2002 BMW 325 - RWD Coupe
Pros: Too many to name
Advice: BMW's can get quite 'pricy', limit the options to only those you'll use.I have to admit that I've always been a fan of BMW. Before taking out a co worker's 2001 330Cic, it had been quite a few years since I last drove one (worked on a few when I was younger). The quality of her 330Cic was just fantastic, I knew right then that I wanted one. I test drove several different combinations (330's and 325's/ autos and manuals)and decided on a 325Ci with a manual trans. Sure the 'extra' power of the 330 is nice but at this point in my life it's not needed. I ordered my 325Ci the first week of April 2002 and recieved it the first week of June 2002. I have had absolutely no problems with it at all, it has been perfect. The fit and finish are top notch, the chassis stiff and rattle free. Power is more than adequate, 0-60 in 7.0 isn't to bad. This car is without doubt the finest vehicle that I've ever owned, doubt I'll ever get rid of it.
