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

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.

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.
