    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great engine and chassis, composed quiet ride, decent room
    Cons: Could feel more connected to the car

    Summary: I should love this car. Itís the size I like, with a soulful engine and a wonderfully balanced chassis. So why, in my third test drive of the current 3-series, do I still find it hard to bond with? In brief, it remains too perfect. BMW 3-Series ... read more

    Pros: heated seats, comfortable yet gripping ride, cornering, see above
    Cons: takes only premium fuel, lag when flooring the gas pedal

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good pick up and speed; good shape; reliable
    Cons: less leg room in the back.

    Summary: the title says it all: i love my car. This is my 4th bmw. I also own a 528i and an X5. I've always loved BMWs. The command you have when you drive is uncomparable to others. I used to think the 528i was the epitome of cars but the 325xi has proven me ... read more

    Pros: handling, fun to drive, small turning circle, beautiful design
    Cons: price, less reliable than Japanese brands, rear seat room

    Summary: I used to think driving was a chore. Now I can't wait to get in my 325i and drive, even if it's just down to the supermarket. My 2002 325i is a replacement for my 1999 Infiniti G20, which sadly was smashed by a large Dodge truck on the freeway. I was ... read more

  • Much Improved 'Ultimate Driving Machine'

    Oct 28, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Driving pleasure. Much improved handling on snowy roads. Panacea.
    Cons: List of expensive options.

    Summary: In January 2002, when looking for a new car to replace our Volvo S70, I wanted an Audi A4 but my wife wanted a BMW. I did not want a bimmer since I had one about 10 years ago, which drove like a charm on dry roads but slipped and slid on snowy surfaces, ... read more

    Pros: Fit and finish, handling, transmission, and acceleration
    Cons: Standard seats, poor AM reception, lack of standard armrest.

    Summary: After doing a lot of research including reading many reviews on epinions I finally decided to plunk down the money on a 2002 325i. Being on somewhat of a budget if one can be when shopping for a car of this caliber, I opted for a base 325i with the ... read more

  • A wonderful car mated to an underpowered engine.

    Sep 30, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great 5 speed; fun to drive.
    Cons: Anemic engine... definitely need the 3.0 litre.

    Summary: Earlier this year, my new M3 broke down -- the clutch sensor broke and the engine refused to start. To alleviate my suffering, the dealer loaned me in quick successions, several cars. One of them happened to be a silver 325ci (a coupe) mated to a 5-speed ... read more

    Cons: Lack of storage

    Summary: ***April 2003*** update below original review. I have had possession of my BMW 325XI since June 22, 2002. I was tempted to write my review a week or two after I picked it up but resisted until now so that I could minimize my “new car ... read more

    Pros: Smooth ride, excellent handling, luxurious interior - what's not to love?
    Cons: A little expensive; dealers can be snotty and snooty

    Summary: What can I say about the 325i? It's an amazing car! You get a mix of sports car and luxury car rolled into one. I test drove a variety of vehicles before I finally decided on the 325i and it was by far the best vehicle I drove - there honestly isn't ... read more

    Pros: Wonderful engine, great handling, German engineering/well built.
    Cons: Premium price.

    Summary: I have always been a fan of German cars; BMWs especially have always struck me as "beautiful" or "breathtaking". The 2002 BMW 325i is no exception. This BMW is in the highly competitive range of mid-range luxury cars that offer class, performance, and ... read more

    Pros: confidence-inspiring handling, beautiful body, and exceptional value for money
    Cons: backseat is meant for 2 only, average sound system

    Summary: I bought the E46 model in Dec. 2001. My previous car was a '95 BMW 325 E36 shape. There is a significant change in the road characteristics of the car. The new model is quieter and softer on the road but I actually prefer the "go-kart" feel of the old ... read more

    Cons: NONE

    Pros: Awesome handling, well laid out interior, gorgeous fit and finish, and very reliable, so far.
    Cons: None with the car, but the dealers in my area tend to be snobby.

    Summary: I've always wanted a nice car, but I was not been able to comfortably afford one in the past. On my first and second cars, I always felt like I made a bit of a compromise when I drove off the lot. Both were VWs and both were well made, but a more ... read more

    Cons: Friends wanting to drive it

    Summary: I got the exact car I wanted, at the price I wanted. I ordered it as well, and it arrived in late January. I live in Denver, so all-wheel drive was my choice. The only options I got are the Sports Package (17'' wheels, seats, and steering wheel) and ... read more

    Pros: 325i offers smooth engine, great ride and handling balance, timeless engineering design inside and out.
    Cons: 3-series and competitors are smaller than other sedans in same or lesser price ranges.

    Summary: My 4-year lease on my '98 VW Passat 1.8T with Tiptronic is running out, and having been turned on to the virtues of German sedans by the design, materials, anvil-like build quality, quiet ride (except under acceleration), and the secure, responsive ... read more
