Great Car - I'd Buy Another — This is a terrific car. My 325i has a sports package and handles extremely well. Ride is firm, but fine by me. The care has been very reliable but like the initial purchase price, maintenance is a little too expensive.

Bmw Family Car — This 2006 BMW 325i with full sport package has been an excellent car! The engine power is above average when compared to other 6 cylinder engines from other auto companies...inline 6 cylinder, rear-wheel drive with an automatic transmission..equals a very smooth riding and performing car! Interior full leather is comfortable, looks great and wears well..no complaints here! Get rid of the run-flat tires that come stock on the car! Once you replace them with regular rubber...a noticeably smoother ride will be present! I've had this 325i for over 3 years..used as a daily driver for work, long trips with family and the occasional weekend get away...plenty of trunk space..plan to keep this car for a long time!!

Clean Title — I would buy another car just like this one. I love BMW's and would recommend to family or friend. At this point in our lives we need something a little bigger but after we have a family would enjoy this.

Great Car To Drive — This is just a great driving car. Handles great in and out of traffic and always comfortable. What driving is all about. A little cramped if you have a small family but otherwise a great car to own. Gets lots of looks!

A Pleasure Drive — This is the finest car I have ever owned. I was surprised at how tight everything was plus the styling and creature comforts. I felt in complete control of its tight mechanical operation, enjoyed driving it, was comfortable riding and all without worry of reliability.

Bmw Ride — The acceleration, braking and handling of this car are superb. It is the utlimate the driving machince. Fun and safe to drive. Gas mileage was great on trips, and ok in the city. The car's appearance, build and performance are the best.

Loved The Feel Of The Seats — In the NW it seems to get more debris in the seams. I love how the seats warm up in about 2 and one half blocks. A car that really makes you feel connected to the road at all times

330ci — great car! wouldnt want to own any other...(other than an m3 or a 335ci lol) price for the car was ok, sucks that if anything is needed for the car it has to be imported.. other than that the handling and performance is a whole lot better than i expected it to be.

Nice! — Good amount of power! Love the rims and its very FUN to drive! Love to turn off the DTC at winter and drive a bit sideways! The cream colored leather suits a black car very nice and gives it a nice look.

Bmw 330 Ci — It's really good. The nice 186 hp engine but it feels more when you drive it fast. It cost $60,000 and hasn't been crashed. BMW 330CI E46 2001 is fun to drive. Top Speed 250 KM/H. This car is amazing.
