Well during my senior year in high school I felt I should get rid of my old car(Nissan 240sx) and step it up a little or alot. I've always been fascinate by German cars and ran into a great deal on a 325Ci and ended up buying it.
Interior and Exterior:
I notice the eyes appearling style and many others when I drove it to school before knowing anything of the car. After 6 years it still looks as good or better than some of the cars on the road. The interior is superb, everything is at arm reach distance, there are nothing that will get into your way. I love the steering wheel radio control I can change the station without letting go of the steering wheel. The leather and wooding are nice. Rear seats arent the best for long trips.
I wasn't surprise of the horsepower of the car but it's enough to get around. I drove the car going over 130mph on the highway and man everything felt solid. I'm shock at the handling of the car when I brought it to the famous Sebring race track. Diving into corners at 70mph(recommend not to do this in open streets) there were little body roll and great steering respond. For more horsepower get the 330 model.
BMW is known for their quality I brought the car from the dealer brother and he told me he hasnt replace anything on the car except the oil and thats it. Everything felt soild and done right. The plastic feels like high class plastic( if that even exist) Engine is well built.
I had to replace a bushing dure to age and wear and tear. The bushing itself cost me over $100 and labor is done by hour. So parts are expensive. And for me sitting in the driver seat everything is great but for the passager you sometimes wonder why is the dashboard is slanted toward the driver. It makes you wanna straighten it out yourself.
