Ultimate Daily Machine — I got lucky and found the exact model I wanted, color and options. Bmws can be used as everyday cars with performance that tops most people's "weekend cars". I dont buy BMWs to show off, I buy them becuase they make motoring a joy.

Performance is key with this car

Drive this car like a race car, then like a family car

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!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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

build quality and performance

Cons

cost

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

Pros

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

Great Car — This car is very fun to drive around in. It handles well and rides smooth. The interior is black and the paint color is silver. Very fuel efficient. Has plenty of extras and like the push button start and stop.

Handling

diesel

Good All Rounder — Good handling, quick pick up for a diesel. Rapid between 30-70. Build quality is solid. Fancy getting a new set of wheels and maybe an ecu remap, oh and maybe some lower suspension. Still get 40 mpg combined fuel consumption

This was a nice car, but temperamental. Seats were comfortable, car was sporty, but the gearshift and transmission were a crapshoot. And lots of vibrations too. Still, it was a sharp car, with good cu... Read More
