This Car Is The Perfect Mix Of Performance And Luxury. — There is no car like a BMW. I first thought that bmw's were like all other luxury cars, but they are on a completely different level than anything else i've ever driven. This car is a mini rocket. On paper the car may seem average, but get behind the wheel and its a whole new world!

Sheer Power And If Anyone Wants To Enjoy Powerslides Can Join In — when it comes to BMW its a brand.... we selected it because of inline six cylinder engine which makes 215 ps with turbocharger, its really fun to drive, and we call it as instant 200kmph..we are proud owner of BMW 325i 6 cylinder

Must Buy — had random problems with the door locks jamming but overall it is an amazing car, very smooth drive and acceleration, and good build quality. the cost was a little high for some of the repairs and when compared to Japanese brands, but it is worth it in the long run

A Great Car For Me At The Mo! — Having had the BMW 318i estate I decided I'd stick with BMW if I could find one at the right price, the right age, the right model, the right mileage and of course the right interior, the right SOUND SYSTEM and of course the RIGHT COLOUR! - A Tall order! But I love this car. I looked and tested lots of BMW's before I purchased this including the new diesel 325 saloon version. What I was really after was a car to enjoy now the boys had their own transport. Ended up loving this BMW 325ci M sport coupe with steptronic (until now) always had manual shift. Economically, this car with the same size fuel tank only does 50 miles less (combined mileage use) than the 318i which is better than I expected. It has sport front seats too - so great comfort on a longer journey. As far as I am concerned - from performance through to styling and the fun factor and not forgetting the MUST HAVE sound system - it scores top marks for me at the moment

handling, great smooth inline 6, and overall wonderful ownership experience that brings a smile to your face everyday you drive it

Cons

could opt for a 335i (same car, more powerful twin turbo engine)

25

I Love It — Love the handling, and braking is really good Feel like it could use some more power in terms of straight-line acceleration, but the 255 is ample for most needs Overall it is amazing to drive, and it makes me smile everytime i take a corner at speed. The steering is nicely weighted and very sensitive, best ive driven so far. The appearance is pretty decent stock, but its more classy than sporty, however a few subtle aggressive mods will change that, (working on those right now) The build quality is above average, but occasional little things get annoying, like broken cup holders and occasional rattles gets good gas mileage if you want it to, aka. dont drive like you stole it a bit pricey (both the car and all parts associated with it), but its a BMW so its expected
