Ultimate Driving Machine. — Hugs the road. Even though its only 2.5 litres it feels like a race car. The tight suspension brings driving onto a whole new level.

Pros: Suspension. stickshift. Chick magnet.

Cons: Break dust. Only 2.5 litres. Only a 5speed why not 6.

The Car Has Good Performance For A 3 Series, But It Could Looke Better And Be A Little Mroe Reliable. — The 2003 BMW 325xi would be a great car if it had the looks to go with it. The interior is amazing, black leather with silver trim. The pedal feels good when you step on it. You can really feel the power. The tiptronic is fun to drive. (For those who don't know, it's a combination of manual and automatic in a vehicle). However the exterior front and rear bumpers could get an improvement. You could buy the body kit yourself, but it would be better for BMW to have it installed stock.

Pros: Good Performance, nice interior, good sound quality, steptronic/tiptronic

Cons: exterior look, odd engine noises at times

Zippy, Smooth, Fun — Boutght a second hand 325i with 52,000 miles on it. So far the car has been a dream-ride. The engine is responsive, very little road noise or engine noise. The interior is well planned and everything is intuitive. My only problem is that i seem to 'feel' the road a bit too much, a defect of the shocks?

Fun. Repairs. Love/hate Relationship — I love how it handles and how zippy it is. I never have to wonder if I can shoot the gap. Even at freeway speeds, this thing accelerates enough to make me happy everytime. I hate fixing it all the time though. The engine is basically solid as long as you do your oil changes. I wish it had better lumbar support.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling, comfort, the stereo still sounds awesome. About the same as when I got it over 100k miles ago. This thing has held it's look. It still looks like a sporty newer car even though it's 11 years old now. Of course It now has sportier rims, and clear corners.

Cons: window regulators always break, tail lights short out, bushings in steering gotta be replaced every 40k miles or so, camshaft piston o-rings replacement at 100k miles is a must, or the power is gone and this thing sucks wind. Also the cooling system breaks prematurely. Mine made it to about 155k, but most make it to around 120k, from what I've heard.

Fun, Fast Bmw 325i - Great For Student Or Yoru 1st Car! — The BMW 325i is a great little car to drive as it handles well. The BMW is truly a driving experience. This car is great on gas mileage and is a good-looking car too! You definitely get the best of it all in this performance-made car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling and fast car.  The gas mileage is very nice too!  And, the tinted windows are great for the California hot sun.   I would recommend this car to a student or someone's first car.

Cons: It has some minor imperfections on the exterior.

Great Car — This was my dream car when I bought it, and has been a dream to drive ever since. It is comfortable for passengers as awesome to drive. It has needed very little maintenance other than standard regular items like tires and oil changes.

Pros: Handling, Style and Comfort

Cons: Parts are harder to find being a foreign made luxury vehicle.

Beautiful Car — This car definitely had it's pros and cons. It was weak on power but made up for that handsomly with it's handling. It is comfortable for two passengers and (maybe) two kids if they're under 4' tall. The trunk space is surprisingly good if you disable the roof from coming down but if you do want to drop the top then you're going to suffer a bit. Overall it was a great car but it was replaced with a new E93 328.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: nice quality, excellent handling, reliable

Cons: expensive to repair, could have quicker acceleration

Its just a fun car to own.
