    A Real Driver's Car! — The 330 convertible was my compromise between a true 2 seat sports car and a family sedan. I have taken my kids to school and then drove it to work everyday since I bought it - and I loved every minute of my commute. It has stood up rather well to the rigors of daily use with the interior showing signs of wear only on the left lateral support of the driver's seat and the steering wheel radio buttons. That is a testament to the quality of the materials used in the car. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone who appreciates driving rather than just commuting!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I bought my car new and, after almost 7 years, I still love driving it! Unlike today's cars with electric steering, there is excellent road feel. Very reliable. Classic design.

    Cons: I only recently started servicing my car after the warranty expired, and it is expensive! Also, front bumper easily gets caught on parking lot stops so don't pull in all the way.

    Perfect Get Around Car In Style. — This is a perfect car to get around in comfortably. More along the lines of a family car, definatelyl not a sports car, definately not a race car like some may lead you to think. they are comfortable and look nice... having the 4 doors is helpfull switch from the 2 doors previously offered. spacious, can fit 5 ppl semi comfortably. handling is very nice around bends considering the type of car it is. gas mileage was ok. Car absorbed most the impact of a 50mph rear ending - totalled the car, but minor injuries.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I would get this car again, so i'd recommend someone looking for a family car to get it

    Cons: maintenance

    Great Car - I'd Buy Another — This is a terrific car. My 325i has a sports package and handles extremely well. Ride is firm, but fine by me. The care has been very reliable but like the initial purchase price, maintenance is a little too expensive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling car, wonderful motor, reliable, solid, fun to drive

    Cons: Expensive to purchase, maintenance and tires also expensive

    Bmw Family Car — This 2006 BMW 325i with full sport package has been an excellent car! The engine power is above average when compared to other 6 cylinder engines from other auto companies...inline 6 cylinder, rear-wheel drive with an automatic transmission..equals a very smooth riding and performing car! Interior full leather is comfortable, looks great and wears well..no complaints here! Get rid of the run-flat tires that come stock on the car! Once you replace them with regular rubber...a noticeably smoother ride will be present! I've had this 325i for over 3 years..used as a daily driver for work, long trips with family and the occasional weekend get away...plenty of trunk space..plan to keep this car for a long time!!

    Pros: Reliable  sedan with comfortable ride, ample power, excellent safety and excellent brakes.

    Cons: Rear seating is cramped for average sized adults.

    Clean Title — I would buy another car just like this one. I love BMW's and would recommend to family or friend. At this point in our lives we need something a little bigger but after we have a family would enjoy this.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I love how it drives and the car mileage.

    Cons: It is fairly small and would be pefect if you don't have more than one child.

    Great Car To Drive — This is just a great driving car. Handles great in and out of traffic and always comfortable. What driving is all about. A little cramped if you have a small family but otherwise a great car to own. Gets lots of looks!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great driving experience

    Cons: tight in the rear for adults

    A Pleasure Drive — This is the finest car I have ever owned. I was surprised at how tight everything was plus the styling and creature comforts. I felt in complete control of its tight mechanical operation, enjoyed driving it, was comfortable riding and all without worry of reliability.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good acceleration, smooth ride, relaiable, very low maintance costs, design and color are attracrtive

    Cons: rug bneath they gas pedal is shabby from normal wear and tear; there are a couple surface scratches lower right wheel well

    Bmw Ride — The acceleration, braking and handling of this car are superb. It is the utlimate the driving machince. Fun and safe to drive. Gas mileage was great on trips, and ok in the city. The car's appearance, build and performance are the best.

    Pros: Drives and handles the road well.

    Cons: No negatives, its a BMW

    Loved The Feel Of The Seats — In the NW it seems to get more debris in the seams. I love how the seats warm up in about 2 and one half blocks. A car that really makes you feel connected to the road at all times

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent power with average economy

    Cons: Did not come with a spare tire. Had to add later

    330ci — great car! wouldnt want to own any other...(other than an m3 or a 335ci lol) price for the car was ok, sucks that if anything is needed for the car it has to be imported.. other than that the handling and performance is a whole lot better than i expected it to be.

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

    Pros: 6speed

    Cons: maintenance cost
