Pretty Good, But Needs A Solid Roof — Don't ever buy the four cylinder engine model. It's thirsty and really dog slow.

This Car Is Lots Of Fun To Drive. — This is my firs BMW I buy. And I just can't see my self driving anything else. The experice and feeling of this car is unique. And the 4/50k mile warranty is the best. Great car and a great price.

Pros: Handeling, Performance and Style

Cons: None

Great, Economically Fast Diesel. — Yes I know, it's a diesel and it's a BMW. Who cares? I get a free pass to the outside lane, I DO own the road and I DON'T actually have to use my indicators (the Highway Code says so) Joking aside it is a great car. I have the SE model, not sure how it compares to others but it has the 6 speed 'box, full leather, climate, electrics etc etc.

Pros: Quite economical. Fast for a diesel.

Cons: P11D haha.  Tyres cost a small fortune (Potenza run flats) It's a diesel.

The Ultimate Driving Machine...fo Sho — The 325 xi handles wonderfully. Just not enough h/p. Cant wait for more power!! Once you step in it though, it'll feel like you've been driving it for years.

Pros: Handling, resposivness, awd, taking turns @ 95mph feels like 50...

Cons: Slightly slow on the uptake.

Great Car — The only thing that could be changed, if possible is the noise factor from the roof when closed. The winter driving was NOT cold with the material roof.

Pros: Sport handeling

Cons: Too expensive to buy

Cons: Lack of toys as standard, everything is extra

Wonderful Quick Fun Car. — very nice handling, the engine loves high rpms and has a great straight-six engine sound... 325 model not the fast enough to meet power hungry's thirst... virtually no exhaust note... not necessarily the best car for older people.... as this is a sporting car its maybe be a little rough riding for the older crowd... unless this is what u want in a car... this car even could be considered smooth if you depending on what car u have driven... by todays standards this car maybe a little slow.... based on the standard figure of a 6.5 0-60 as the a good base number... this car is about in the 7 to 9 second range depending... great car overall what it may lack in speed it still can handle... which makes it very fun to drive in the local back roads... haha

Pros: very nice handling, the engine loves high rpms and has a great straight six sound...

Cons: 325 model not the fast enough to meet power hungrys thirst... virtually no exhaust note...

Somewhat similar to Audi A3 E-tron, but that model is no longer available in US. Wish the 330e could go farther on just electricity. Youll never actually save money with these PHEVs, but Mother Nature... Read More
