    Not As Good As You Would Think — you would think that a BMW shoul dbe fault free but i have had a good amount of bother with this car. Take my advice if your going to get one get a 2003 or later or get one that has had the turbo replaced as this seems to be a weak point on the car

    Pros: nice and fast and economical

    Cons: weak points in the engin and cost to fix

    Loved This Wagon, Just A Bit On The Small Side — This car was fab - sad to see it go, but it wasn't quite big enough with 2 kids in the back and an adult in the centre. 325i Sport Tourer (Manual)... handled as well (if not better) than the 328ci Coupe that I've still got.

    Pros: Handling, speed, comfort

    Cons: Size

    A Great Driver's Car. — Best of everything, a little bit of a sports car, a little bit of a luxury car, a great complete package. Great stability and handling on anything. Tons of fun to drive.

    Pros: Reliable, tons of features, never had any problems (that I didn't cause :P ).

    Cons: Complicated electronics, expensive to modify. The damn door trim keeps getting unglued from high heat.

    This Car Is Amazing — after driving a bmw, its hard to drive any other car. The acceleration is awesome and so is the handling, but it eats a lot of Gas.

    This Is Actually The Other Halfs Motor — This is the club sport version with hardened sports suspension and reduced noise dampening for a "sportier" feel. Still feels like a luxe motor to me. Has excellent pick up but drinks fuel like an alcoholic drinks vodka. In Estoril Blue and full leather interior and mpower badged by BMW.

    Pros: The "sensible" car of the family

    Cons: None really

    Great Car But Everyone Hates You — Fast, nice-handling and well-built, but no-one ever lets you out of side-turns because everyone hates BMW drivers, so its actually one of the slowest cars I've owned.

    Pros: Engine

    Cons: Image

    I'm A Customer For Life! — I have a 2002 BMW 325i sedan. It has the jet black exterior with the black leather interior with the burl wood trim. I purchased the car at a used car dealership in May of 2006, with exactly 60,500 miles for $21,900. Today (November of 2007) the car has 92,000 miles and has not given me any trouble what-so-ever. In the time I have owned the car I have made a few changes. I have purchased aftermarket rims (because the stock 17 inch rims from sports package were a little small in my opinion), tinted my windows, and got a personalized license plate. I am 20 years old (and yes I purchased it myself with my own money ; ) and I love this car!!! I am a BMW owner for life! I plan on having this car forever, and once its paid off I will probably buy a new one. I think this car has a perfect blend of looks, performance, power, etc. I wish the seats were a little more comfortable. I have the stock Sports Package which has the firmer suspension, bigger wheels (which i replaced anyway), and firmer seats. Any ride over an hour kinda gets to my back, but all in all i love the ride. the car handles awesome! it corners wonderfully and the car almost begs to be driven quickly. despite the modest 184 hp engine, the car really gets up and goes, especially when you are on the freeway. the car has excellent passing power. there is a noticable difference though if you have 4 or 5 passengers in the vehicle. or if the air conditioning is on. or if you run on regular gas. but with premium gas, and just you and 1 passenger, the car hauls pretty good! hmmm.....what else. im trying to write a real helpful review. not a short one. lol I love the xenon lights. they light the road up beautifully and get lots of attention. I have the standard bmw business radio, has lots of bass, but the acustics could be better. i would STRONGLY reccomend making sure you buy one with the harmon/kardon sound system, that radio sounds wonderful. the powered memory seats are a nice touch, and i love the ambient lighting on the inside of the vehicle. there is a soft orange light that lights up the whole interior of the car at night. its beautiful. the back seat is kinda small, only fits people up to about 5'9" comfortably. if you are 6 foot or more your knees will touch the seats in front of you, and your head will be close to the roof. the trunk is kinda small, but unless you haul lots of luggage around or go on lots of road trips it should be fine. just the normal trip to grocery store or target is fine. the gas mileage on this car is pretty good too. i drive a little on the 'spirited' side and i average about 23 mpg in mixed driving. on the hwy if i keep it at about 70 mph i average about 30 mpg. on the freeway at about 90 mph i still average about 25 mpg. the city driving is what eats the gas. i only aveage about 17 mph in the city. insurance on this vehicle is a little high, as it is considering a premium sports sedan. but its worth it. the car is very very very safe. just check out the ratings and photos from the crash tests. they are very safe cars. my brother is a chp (california hwy patrol) officer and he is always seeing car wrecks. every time he goes to an accident involving a bmw the occupants are almost always unscathed. even when a bmw rolled down an embankment the pt only had a couple bruises. and you cannot put a price on safety! not sure what else to put. hope this helps. oh um....the maintenance is expensive. the car only needs to be serviced every 15,000 miles (which is nice) but each time it cost me about 500-700 dollars. and i needed new brakes in the front which cost me about 800 dollars, jsut for pads (no rotors) and just in the front. all in all this is a wonderful vehicle that i truly love. my mom owns a 2004 acura tsx, my sister a 2001 mercedes benz e420, and i have friends with a lexus, and infiniti, etc. ANYWAY, everyone loves my car, and the bmw always gets the most attention from everyone. when i first got the car everyone thought it was brand new. even after riding inside of it they still thougtht it was brand new. when i told them it was a 2002 with 60k miles they were shocked. it still drives strong and runs smooth. even today with 90k on the odometer it drives nice. i love this car and am a bmw owner for life, i will never stray from this brand. i think this car cannot be beat for the dollar. yes its expensive, but you get a lot for your money. this truly is the ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE ; )

    Pros: performance, gas mileage, xenon headlights, handling, resale value, safety, prestige

    Cons: 184 hp, small back seat, expensive to maintain and insure
