I Feel That This Car Is Worth All Of It's Sticker Price. — The 2006 BMW 325xi an extremely reliable that is very visually appealing. When driving this car, you can tell by the wonderful handling and the outstanding comfort that you are behind the wheel of a BMW. Amongst all the hype, I wasn't expecting much out of the 3.0 Liter 6 cylinder but after I gave it al it had I the realized why there has been so much talk about this engine. Overall I give this car a 9/10.

Great Daily Driver — This a nice overall car. I drives very well, is spacious, good on gas, etc. I would describe it as a jack of all trades, master of none. It's not deficient in any particular area. I would prefer if it were more focused on performance.

Pros

I bought my car new and, after almost 7 years, I still love driving it! Unlike today's cars with electric steering, there is excellent road feel. Very reliable. Classic design.

Cons

I only recently started servicing my car after the warranty expired, and it is expensive! Also, front bumper easily gets caught on parking lot stops so don't pull in all the way.

A Real Driver's Car! — The 330 convertible was my compromise between a true 2 seat sports car and a family sedan. I have taken my kids to school and then drove it to work everyday since I bought it - and I loved every minute of my commute. It has stood up rather well to the rigors of daily use with the interior showing signs of wear only on the left lateral support of the driver's seat and the steering wheel radio buttons. That is a testament to the quality of the materials used in the car. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone who appreciates driving rather than just commuting!

Maybe The Best Of The 32 Cars I've Owned, Including Numerous European Luxo And Sports Cars — My second 3 series car. Purchased as a CPO with 16K miles 4 years ago. Now has about 54K miles and has completely met my expectations. Get the premium and sport packages if you can; these make the car much more enjoyable and capable.

Pros

Smooth sound of an inline six engine, great side and rear profile, enough power for regular, everyday commuting. Intelligent all-wheel drive system.

Cons

At only 215 horsepower, it's just not as fast as I feel like it could be. Front end isn't as nice as the LCI models (2009-2011). No LED halogens (angel eye) front end headlights or LED rear tail end lights. No navigation system. The only option on it is the Cold Weather Package and the Premium Package. Gasket problems.

Nice Vehicle For A 23 Year Old College Student — It is comfortable, clean, and a nice car to be driving when you are a 23 year old college student. It does garner some attention when I am seen driving in it. Aside from that, it is high maintenance and high performance like any other BMW. This one in particular has issues that are commonly associated with first year models. I would beware when buying any first year model vehicles.

Perfect Get Around Car In Style. — This is a perfect car to get around in comfortably. More along the lines of a family car, definatelyl not a sports car, definately not a race car like some may lead you to think. they are comfortable and look nice... having the 4 doors is helpfull switch from the 2 doors previously offered. spacious, can fit 5 ppl semi comfortably. handling is very nice around bends considering the type of car it is. gas mileage was ok. Car absorbed most the impact of a 50mph rear ending - totalled the car, but minor injuries.

Goog Value For Luxury Awd — Car handles well. Gets looks too. Solid and reliable. Good in snow and good on fuel economy. Doesn't overstimulate you and if it wasnt red it probably wouldn't get any looks, but it is affordable luxury at its best. Value car.

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

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.

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.
