BMW 3-Series Coupe 325 Ci 2d Auto (00) (2000/X) - Owner Review

From the day I got it, I was enamored with it. I drove it more for the sheer exuberance, buzz I got from it than anything else. Stunning performance. I agree with Andy about the road holding. I still purposely go out in it when its raining, AMAZING!

When first got was relatively rare. Got envious stares and comments constantly. Now two a penny, but still carries mega prestige if loaded like mine. Only let down when I see an M3, then I become the envious instead of the envied.

Security

4 out of 5

Only criticism is, as with most remote controls, security can be deactivated accidentally. I've been in dodgy areas, come out to of my visit to find I have accidentally opened the boot, or whole vehicle from inside the building.

Service

2 out of 5

BMW have treated me like sh*t. I have a massive log of the way I have been badly treated since new. it is only lack of time and expertise that have held me back so far from exposing them.

Problems

Bodywork
Rust, but only due to the service.

Engine
Slow to respond to throttle. The slogan drive by wire, the moment you ask for extra power is the same moment you get extra power is a lie. it was more true of my old cable accelerated Granada. couple of other minor things but other than that, fantastic

Gearbox
?

Other
cassette/radio/cd player & controls faults, chrome kit peeling. Vehicle pulled to left from new. People think its locked as door handles hard to pull to open. Wipers bang both ends of travel. S/wheel and controls wear unreasonably. BMW have IGNORED me
