"BMW 325 ci coupe (2000-X)"

Having been looking for a bmw coupe for several months and test driving various models i bought a 325 the car drives superb as well as looking great. It has all the buttons and gadgets you could possibly need.

having test driven the 316, 318, and 320 there was just no comparisson between them the 325 just blows them out of the water the cars appear to be flawless and if well looked after i have been informed can easily reach 200000 miles so dont be put off by high milage cars. My car has done just shy of 100000 but i had a drive in one that had done 47000 and even with the mileage i couldnt tell the difference.

as with everything there has to be a couple of downfalls. they are thirsty dont believe what the book tells you there is no chance of you getting 40mpg out of one of these closer to 30 if you drive sensibly also the servicing is quite expensive compared to lesser cars but its to be expected with a car that would have cost 20 - 30 grand new.

not from experience but from shared knowledge i have been led to believe that they are quite bad for lower arm ball joints, ball joints in general and bushes so if you test drive one be sure to listen for any knocking or play in the steering. also any knocking in general.
