Car is a fun car to drive and runs like a new car with 100,000 miles on it. Great pick up and overall ride. Negative is the repair cost and poor customer service from most of the dealerships. Would not take it to a dealership again. They way over price their service and have no customer service. I found a private mechanic that has been great overlooked the whole car and made necessary routine maintainence at a reasonable price. Overall a great car. I am looking for another one for my wife.

I bought this car about 2 months ago and really have no complaints. It handles like a dream and it's truly a performance vehicle. It is extremely reliable. I previously owned a 1998 318i and there were a lot of upgrades from that model. I had no hesitation from previously owning a BMW about buying this one and I am not dissapointed. Definately another happy BMW customer.

I have owned this car for 6 months and put 30k miles on it. Car still runs like the day I bought. I bought it with 100k miles on it. Runs better than numerous newer cars I have owned. It is a manual but is very smooth. This car has the best response I have seen in any car I have owned. Winter driving is great. The car stays straight on the road.

I now have 122k on the odometer. This car drives and performs like the day I bought it. Tight, no funny noises, no loose handling, great engine performance. Two catches though. Expensive to maintain and the electrical system has required more than usual attention (under warranty fortunately)

The engine is strong. The handeling is fun. I did alot of homework on German auto ownership before purchasing the car. I am impressed with the fit and finish of their cars. I tend to keep cars for as long as humanly possiable. Some German manufactures have been making 6 cylinder engines for close to 100 years. That speaks to me. Living in New England on top of a hill is not the easiest way to make it home in the winter. THe AWD makes the snowy hill climb easy. This is my 8th car. I belive I can get at least 300k out of it. My last car from Korea lasted me for 10 years and 236K on the odometer before the winter road salt made it too far gone to merit keeping it up to snuff. I cannot remember the last time I saw a rust bucket GmbH made car on the road. I've see lots of Pacific Rim autos that fall into the rust bucket status after 10 years in New England. Many car manufacturers from Japan make a strong and reliable engine, but they lack in rust prevention. Do realize that German cars need to be cared for. You can pay others to maintain it or you can maintain it yourself at a lower cost.

I love this car. At 90,000 miles, it still looks and rides like a million bucks! You'll never go wrong with it!

Bot an '03 325i in '05 with 28k miles. Tight, quick handling and good performance for a 3ltr. normal asprd. Now has 125k and same comments. Fastest I've been is abt. 138mph. If you don't mind driving 55mph it'll get nearly 40mpg in fairly flat country. Course you'll occasionally get people honking and waving. Love the car. PS One reviewer mentioned 3rd row seats and another mentioned all wheel drive?????

bmw invented the sport sedan and is still number 1. Now if bmw's build quality was as good as my wife's toyota suv, it could arguably be the perfect car. It's more entertaing to drive than a lexus is, but the lexus beats the bimmer in build quality, i've owned both.

Recently purchased my 2003 325 xi with 116K for $9000. Prior owners took great care of it, Looks and drives like new. Recent 300 mile road trip got 30.6 mpg going 68 MPH, amazing. Love the AWD and am looking forward to winter driving in Minnesota. Too soon to comment on reliability as I have only put on 2000 miles but I am optimistic.
