Brilliant Marvellous Wonderful Review with images

AdvantagesGreat to drive, spacious, safe, reliable

DisadvantagesNo rear windscreen wiper, small glove compartment

"...We have a 07 plate BMW 320i SE automatic in Montego blue. The 20 means it has a 2 litre engine, and the i means it is petrol rather than diesel. Getting this car was not my choice, I wanted a Ford Mondeo but my husband wanted this car and after much pestering I relented. Not that I have any complaints, it is a great car. Why did we choose it? The BMW 3 series is a highly rated car and had won lots of best buy awards and 5 star ratings for motoring ..." Read review

Totally inferior to the contemporary competition.

AdvantagesCheap, rear wheel drive, good autobox.

DisadvantagesAwful interior, poor roadholding, rattly.

"I bought my 1988 E30 320i from a dodgy looking bloke in south norwood. It was dark, a bit wet, and a friday night in October. I needed cheap wheels fast after destroying my mercedes 190e. So. The car. One of the shocks was shot, the heater blower motor didn't work, the windows were manual, the engine had a nasty top end rattle, it had done 104k and it stank of fags. I paid £500 for it, one of my sillier moments, but I was desperate. The drive ..." Read review

Mediocre BMW

AdvantagesA higher class boy racer's car

DisadvantagesThe engine is an under performer

"I've owned a BMW 320iSE L-reg for the last three years and I have to say that my experience with it has been mediocre at best. Prior to owning this car I owned a 525iSE (F reg) and it was absoloutely fantastic...the sort of car that dreams are made of. Unfortunately all things come to an end and I had to sell it. By purchasing a 3-series I thought I was buying more of the same however this was not so. Even with a 2-litre engine the performance is ..." Read review

Life with my BMW 320i Sport

Advantagessmart, comfortable, economic on fuel, quick

DisadvantagesA little conservative in looks, expensive to service

"...child-friendly BMW. Obviously the BMW had a lot to measure up to. Some of the key stats then - it is a V6 2000cc engine, which means I get similar brake horse power to the 323i Sport - 170bhp compared to 186 bhp (but you wouldn't notice and it is about £3,000 cheaper). 0-60 in about 8-9 seconds, but more importantly they have discs, on the 17" alloys, all round so brakes 60-0 in about 3 secs. The insurance group is 17, but depending on your circumstances, ..." Read review

Banger, not !

AdvantagesCheap, fun, image

Disadvantagesexpensive if it goes wrong, tricky in wet

"I have a theory when buying cars, you should either may a lot and get a new or nearly car, or buy cheap, and get a disposable banger, the midpoint is the danger area, you can fork out a fair bit of cash, but still be left with a pup. Not being loaded I usually go for the later option. This doesn't necessarily mean motoring has to be boring though, I've just bought a 1987 320i for £900 which has been very reliable, looks good, and still has a good ..." Read review

Affordable Quality

AdvantagesQuality, Handling, Engine, Image

DisadvantagesLack of extras, Parts Can Be Expensive

"...speeds, 4000rpm+ the distinctive 6-cylinder BMW engine roar brings a smile to your face. Then the car is very capable of keeping up with the GTIs and faster cars on the road at medium to high speed, but don't embarrass yourself off the lights. Fuel economy is quite impressive for a straight six, unless you push the engine(which is quite hard not to do). The MPG dial gives you an education of what really drains fuel. The gearbox is very smooth and ..." Read review

My first BMW - 320i SE

AdvantagesStrong engine, quick gearbox, well balanced and good handling, well built

DisadvantagesHigh maintenance and running costs,

"...handed down a K reg BMW 320i SE Auto 4-Door when a family member left the country. The car was 4 - 5 years older than my current car at the time, but as it was a BMW I decided it would be worth it, and I wasn't wrong. The car has a 6 cylinder, 2.0l engine, with about 150bhp. This isn't a huge amount of power, but it's more than enough to make a pleasant and fairly effortless drive. The car is well balanced and has pretty good sized wheels, 205-55-15R, ..." Read review

BMW 320 i se (4door 2001)

AdvantagesUltimate driving machine, badge, quality

Disadvantagesparts and servicing prices

"i have had my 2001 320ise 4dr for 4 months now, it hasnt missed a beat and drives like new. its done 65k miles. It has the cloth interior which is ok (i would have preferred leather) and pretty much everything you need in a car. I like the up market feel to the car, the only downside about the look of the car is the standard 16" wheels which look like coasters on a sofa (need to be bigger). It averages 29-30mpg and i have a heavy foot, and its capeable ..." Read review

BMW 323i

AdvantagesCheap, Reliable, Fun

DisadvantagesLack of toys

"Having spent the last 15 years running around in new vehicles and some nice ones at that, 528i, Cherokee, etc, I figured it was time to ditch the depreciation for once. Forking out 1700 smackers for a mint condition 323i dating back to August 1985 was a calculated gamble. With a full service history and an engine that sounds as sweet as a very sweet thing, my logic is simply that if my lack of mechanical knowledge gets me into a real lemon, then even ..." Read review

not as good as the e36

AdvantagesComfort

DisadvantagesNo go for Rude boy racers

"I recently took my car to BM for a service and I was given the new e46 to drive while my 318is was being serviced. I have had my car from new for almost 3 years and have been very impressed with the car overall. I was considering upgrading to the newer model but have now had to think twice as I was not to impressed by what I experienced. If you are after a car that is all about comfort and a nice drive than the e46 is the car for you. But if you ..." Read review

BMW Spec

AdvantagesAlmost Everthing

DisadvantagesInsurance, Crawling

"After buying a BMW 320i SE i would find it difficult to go to any other car. I find them brilliant. Ive always driven French cars and of course always paid over the odds for parts, and they have got to be available. Since then I have compaired the prices of possible repairs in the future and the BMW parts, or similar parts are cheaper and more readily available. The driving of the car is very smooth and has a rapid acceleration. There is alot of space ..." Read review

bmw 320i se auto

Advantagesgood gearbox

Disadvantageslow fuel consumption

"I have just bought a BMW 320i SE 2.2l 2002 automatic and the experience i have had with it so far has been outstanding. It is such a lovely car to drive, everything is in reach of the driver. Fuel consumption isnt great but what can you expect. I average 31MPG. It is quite fast, o-60 mph takes around 8 seconds in the manual and 9 in the auto. Overall it is a great drivers car and i would recommend the car to anybody. As i am i8 i hve found the insurance ..." Read review

good, but not that good...........

Advantagesgreat drive.............

Disadvantagesheavy on petrol....

"ive had my BMW 320i now for about four years now and it has been reasonably reliable, but soon as something goes wrong it costs a arm and a leg. the parts for BMW are so expensive it seems sometimes it is not worth putting new parts on, i think most BMW owners realize this and i guess you get what you pay for. i telling you this in case you are not aware but other wise the 320i is a great motor, i have mine lowered at the front 4 inches and it looks ..."
