Overall:

Safe, Eliable And Economical Dad Mobile.... Feels Slightly Sporty To Drive Thanks To Rear Drive Too. — Always starts first time and gets over 60mpg on a long run. Not bad peformance for a Diesel either, also handles a bit better with the new, wider alloys. Can't fault BMW build quality or reliability. Feels sporty to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Build, reliability, performance considering its Diesel, holds value, diesel 3 series resale good

Cons: Boot space limited due to rear wheel drive, gearbox is under the  boot limiting space, also rear seats don't fold flat. Nothing else really negative to say.

My Car — You can't beat RWD. especially in the snow... it's a lot of fun. Wish I had an LSD tho. Bushings and rubber bits tend to wear out, but as the use ally parts and lots of corrosion protection it's a great car to work on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RWD

Cons: Nothing

One Of The Best Cars I Have Ever Owned. — An absolutely beautiful car. It handled great and was the ultimate driving machine. I never had a issue with the car, it was only in the shop for routine maintenance. The car loved to go and go it did. It was so much fun, and I truely enjoyed driving that car. It did take premium gas but, I got great gas mileage around 32 miles to the gallon on the highway. It was an all around great car both for getting to and from work and driving the family around. The only complaint I had about the car was the interior paint peeling on the door handles and the center console. Other than that it was definately a looker and a dream to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handled like a dream and was beautiful to look at.

Cons: The interior paint peeling on the door handles and center console.

Great Second Car — Wife's primary vehicle, she thoroughly loves it. Fully loaded w/ Sport and Premium packages. Small footprint makes in-town driving & parking very easy. On-road handling is sparkling although power from 2.5 litre motor is only adequate. Structure appears to be extremely solid for car size as the car has had 2 major no-fault accidents with much larger vehicles, yet no injuries to wife or passengers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Superior handling, great mileage (24+mpg mixed)

Cons: Automatic somewhat sluggish, Small back seat

Fantastic! — The acceleration, braking, and handling are amazing. BMW makes top of the line vehicles that can beat any dealer in suspension. Yes everybody knows that BMW does cost a lot in maintenance, but it's worth it. The apperance of an 2003 325i is really sporty looking. The overall quality of the vehicle is amazing. They be pricey, but my husband and I loved our BMW. Yes this car is super fun to drive! I loved it! It's really got some giddy up. Sadly, they DO NOT make the 325i anymore, so if you have one keep it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling, speed, comfort

Cons: Maintenance

The Best Car Money Can Buy. — Car has good acceleration, predictable handling and quiet interior. With proper maintanence it is a very dependable vehicle. The styling is timeless and looks much more expensive than it actually is. Gets mid 20's for fuel mileage. Super fun and great value.

Pros: fun, economical, stylish, fun, fun

Nice Little First Car — E46 is the Perfect entry level car. Built for mild performance, but not foe extremists. Great car to learn to make some moves in but far from a track worthy vehicle. Its too hard to rate a normal Road car! top speed is governed at 128 MPH :(

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: BMW handling

Cons: You wont catch up to a REAL CAR
