BMW 3-Series Coupe 325i 2d (1994/L) - Owner Review

Great driving position. Safe driving. Centre armrest is a must in the front. A huge step in build quality from my last car (Escort). Great arse-out action.

BMW 3-Series Coupe (92-99)

Value

5 out of 5

Excellent value. I live in the south, but bought the car in Manchester. Saved about £1500. Has all mod cons.

Costs

3 out of 5

More expensive than my previous cars to run, but more worth it. I like to drive my car as hard as the next bloke. It is worth buying an extra warranty so you are not left with any harsh bills.

Driving

Great driving position. Safe driving. Centre armrest is a must in the front. A huge step in build quality from my last car (Escort). Great arse-out action.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very responsive. Quick off the mark for a big motor. Plenty of potential to increase BHP. Beats most hot hatches. Great pull up to 140mph. Car currently running 230bhp. Easy-to-control car.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Very reliable. Just passed its MOT again on its 8th year. No rust. Just some small scratches here and there. Strong German engineering.

Image

3 out of 5

Cheaper than ever now, so go for a bigger engine. 325 runs 192bhp coupe. Good image. Still looks classy. Play around with kits to make it individual. Still sought after car.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Great driving position. Suprising lack of room in the back for a big car. Leather heated seats.

Security

4 out of 5

BMWs after 1994 come with insurance-approved alarm systems. Total closure, perimeter alarm set up, but if they want to get in, they will (like any car). Not easy to steal, though.
