    Favorite Car I've Owned. — I bought my 330i used with about 35,000 miles on it so still under warranty though I never had to use it. The previous owner had replaced the run flat tires, which are standard, with regular tires so I put run flats on right away. That was the biggest expense the whole time I owned the vehicle. It had the Sport and Premium Packages and was fun to drive every time I started it. You have to use premium gas but it gets such good gas mileage you don't mind. It was only in the shop twice (power window motors that I mentioned) other than oil changes. I couldn't recommend the car more highly. I clicked that I mostly used the car for sport/fun but the emphases is on the fun. I never took it to the track or rode it terribly hard but I was occasionally aggressive on some curvy roads. Only drove it to work occasionally

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Sporty, good looking, comfortable, great fuel economy, handled like a champ.

    Cons: My only con was that in the three years that I owned my BMW I had to replace both rear power window motors.  Not the end of the world but seemed a bit unusual

    Something I'd Never Thought I'd Purchase — My Wife Claims she is not "Materialistic." She then informs me she wants to get this Vehicle and finally give away her '99 Honda Accord EX that she had driven for approximately 13 Years. I did not hesitate in getting it for her. After all, 13 Years with the Honda is pretty good and therefore, I felt she should be rewarded accordingly.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Luxurious and definitely a Head.   Turner.

    Cons: Maintenance Costs are no Myth!  They are Fact!

    Really Fun Car To Drive — I enjoyed owning my 2006 BMW 330xi - a great looking vehichle. It was great in the snow, having AWD, but also very sporty and a great ride in the warmer weather. Traction and stability were certainly a plus. I had very few issues with the vehichle, all easily handled by a great third party warranty. I would definitely recommend this vehichle to any car enthusiast!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Great handling, responsive, and solid ride

    Cons: Small back seat

    Pros: tons of features and very fast

    Beautiful Looking And Reliable — I really enjoyed the acceleration and sports car feel and the control aspect in winter conditions. The fuel economy was more than adequate for a car with this kind of power. I experienced no unexpected repairs or annoying characteristics for such a performance car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Outstanding fuel economy, comfort, handling and power on the highway

    Cons: Ride a tad stiff around town but solid and tight

    Very Nice Ride — Just the high cost of parts and labor. Loved the look of a BMW. very easy to drive. Could use some more space but I did get the 325I. The run flats are costly and don't last long. I put regular tires on.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very sweet car, nice ride

    Cons: Costly to work on

    I Feel That This Car Is Worth All Of It's Sticker Price. — The 2006 BMW 325xi an extremely reliable that is very visually appealing. When driving this car, you can tell by the wonderful handling and the outstanding comfort that you are behind the wheel of a BMW. Amongst all the hype, I wasn't expecting much out of the 3.0 Liter 6 cylinder but after I gave it al it had I the realized why there has been so much talk about this engine. Overall I give this car a 9/10.

    Great Daily Driver — This a nice overall car. I drives very well, is spacious, good on gas, etc. I would describe it as a jack of all trades, master of none. It's not deficient in any particular area. I would prefer if it were more focused on performance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style, handling/ride balance.  Quality feel.

    Cons: It could use more power parts are expensive.
