    Excellent — This has been an excellent car for four years now; it has gotten me through college without trouble and has taken me on many long road trips without so much as a hiccup. Running costs are very low, I don't know how these cars got the reputation for being expensive to own. It is very secure on the road; the excellent suspension and brakes help to avoid accidents. People think you are rich when they see you in this car, which can be good or bad.

    Pros: Excellent build quality, fuel economy (avg 28 MPG), features, smooth powertrain, handling, ergonomics, well-lit controls, God's own stick shift, almost everything is brilliant!

    Cons: The four-cylinder engine, while it is economical, does trail others in power. It is very smooth and willing, but needs a Dinan performance chip.

    Sporty Yet Comfortable Ride — I had been looking at 325s for a while at the time I bought this (2004) and none really caught my attention. I passed by this one and had to stop and take a look. Excellent condition, tinted windows, sports package (conforming seats, sports steering wheel, larger rims, sportier tires). They had just got it on the lot (still had some subs of the previous owner they had to get out). All the paperwork was in order (every invoice from every service they'd had done), the leather was in great condition and the previous owner must have been my exact proportions because every mirror, all seat positions, steering wheel position, *everything* fit like a glove. I drove it (not expecting to buy it) and the sales girl had me go in to talk about it. She and the finance manager were friends, the sales girl was new and needed a sale by the end of the month (I found out about this all post-sale) and another salesperson already had someone interested in it and coming back the next day. I hadn't played it cool at all (since I wasn't expecting to buy it) and was very much "oh, wow, that is so awesome, I love it!" They worked a tremendous deal for me where the financing for it was only $100 more a month than the lease on my Saturn, and I actually got to build equity in it. Not only would I recommend it to a friend, after 3 years of ownership I sold it to my friend when I found the M3.

    Pros: Very nice styling, if kept maintained very little went wrong with it.

    Cons: BMW parts are expensive. Expect a hefty bill.

    Probably The Best Quality Car I Have Ever Owned — Very impressive car. It ran just as perfect the day I sold it (125K miles), as it did the day I drove it off the lot.

    Pros: Excellent ride, great handling

    Cons: Very Expensive to fix

    2nd One I've Had....i Ran The First One Forever And Into The Ground..literally..... — I got this 2001 model a couple of months ago. It was in great condition and runs great. I had an old 1987 BMW 325 before and it was one of the most dependable cars I have ever owned.

    Pros: German engineering, style, great looking interior

    Cons: NONE

    Panzerwagun — Basically, its cheap and RWD. I've started the build, but its going to take a lot of cash and time to complete.

    Pros: Rust Proof and Bomb Proof

    Cons: Heavy and Slower than most things I own
