    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: The silky smooth engine!

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Buy it once and chances are you'll never own another brand.

    Truly the Ultimate Driving Machine! When sitting in the driver's seat you are well supported yet comfortable. The steering and stick feel like a handshake from an old friend. The engine is silky smooth and the transmission is flawless. The sport suspension is very tight, however, the standard suspension is comfortable for those not interested in high performance driving. A well rounded vehicle and definitely the pinnacle of sports sedans.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: bluetooth capability

    Cons: tiny wheels

    Advice: Get the Sport Package, and the Zenon Lighting

    Approaching the vehicle, you look for the sex appeal. Or any appeal of that matter. You click the unlock button. The car doesn't respond audibly, because the Anti-Theft system was not standard. Ok, fine. You look at the wheels and think geez !!! 1 maybe 2 inches would make quite a difference. After all I paid $38k for the car. Finally, I open the door and enter the cockpit. Ahhh... Now you feel understood. Now you remember why you fell in love with the car. You put in the key, and hit the start button like I do in the 750LI. I put the car in drive, (Actually DS mode) the car comes to life. Gratefull I didn't choose the complicated iDrive. I put on my playlist from my iPod. It's on for 30 seconds, until my tach exceeds 4,500 RPM. iPod off. Roar of the Inline-6 calls all the attention. Neck thrown back, knuckles white, Engine screeming. You never consider infidelity with another vehicle. Car & Driver are tuned in glorious harmony. If a car has ever had a soul. It's the new 3 series. Let's just say beauty is on the inside. Conclusion... 06' 325i is perfectly unpretentious, and a little too subtle from the exterior. Yet when you get behind the wheel and join in one accord. You know you made a sound decision when you bought the car. Great quality car, but prefer the previous 3 series styling.

    2003 BMW 330 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: Can't think of one

    Cons: So unreliable

    Advice: Buy Japanese vehicles- I traded a Toyota Avalon (70,000 miles- no problems) for this BMW- big waste of money.

    This car is overpriced and over-hyped. It is not that comfortable, and is certainly not reliable. 3 out of 4 windows have malfunctioned at the cost of $350 ea., radiator, air conditioner, lights have had to be repaired at great cost. A relative gas hog for the size of the engine. Be cautious buying the sport package- the tires are noisy and wear down fast- with repacement costing around $1100 mounted.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: Bluetooth.

    Cons: Not enough storage space.

    Advice: Don't go by all the reviews, this car is good not great, test drive one, then decide.

    The engine combined with the automatic transmission is very responsive and smooth. Handling is very good, you can take on curves without fear. The ride is not too bad for a sports sedan (then again, if you want a really smooth ride buy a grandma car like a Buick). MPG is quite good for 200+ hp V-6, I am averaging about 23MPG in the city, not bad.

    2006 BMW M3 - Coupe

    Pros: the engine

    Cons: HUH?

    Advice: life is short

    A fabulous machine. The competition package is worth every penny. The nav system is extremely helpful on a trip. The SMG transmission is a hoot and my wife and kids can drive, too. The 333 horses under the hood are always ready to run. My 2 children can fit into the back if needed. A dream car that works for me.

    2003 BMW Z4 - 3.0i (M6)

    Pros: Insulated soft-top

    Cons: ground clearance of front end

    Advice: You will scrap the front of this car when parking

    I love how this car handles. It starts off the line very quickly. Even when not intentionally driving aggressively, you'll leave most cars a quarter mile behind you or further, it just accelerates that quickly. It is truely glued to the road, I haven't chirped the tires yet. It's a fairly comfortable ride, though over longer distances it can get a little uncomfortable. There isn't enough leg room for the 6 footers out there. However, I drive it on 250 mile trips quite frequently and its doable, so for a weekend get away car, its great. Plus, if you hit those mountain roads, with the top down, the view plus the handling, just can't be beat.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: None yet

    Cons: Service

    Advice: Buyer be aware! This car has major defect and BMW service is not as good as it claims!

    My car ('06 325i) is only a little more than 4 months old and I had a flat tire yesterday. I then realized that it doesn't have a spare tire. The run-flat can only last 50-100 miles and can't go above 50 miles/hr. Since I was more than 30 miles away from home, I called BMW roadside and had the car towed to a local dealer (OpenRoad BMW). The people there told me that I have to replace the tire and it costs $320. Remember, this is a car with only 4000 miles on it! Worse yet, people there were very unfriendly and at the beginning refused to give me a loaner car so that I can go home. When I bought this car I didn't expect to buy into this kind of experience!
