Gorgeous, enviously wanted by many

2005 BMW 3 Series 330Ci

The machine is like no other the only issue we have is the car needs only BMW parts and can only be worked on by a BMW specialist. Now the greatest of all is heated and cooled seats all electric seats fit for how tall or small you may just be. The factory stereo is amazing and has enough room for a non BMW owner to think it's not factory. The rims that come with this machine are aluminum alloy rims and are absolutely gorgeous on this particular case

Affordable BMW that won't break the bank or break down

2005 BMW 3 Series 325i

My 2005 325i performs incredibly well for as old as it is. The only problems I've encountered have been very easy to fix and haven't drained the bank. I have to replace my power steering pump which is very common, I had a leak in my secondary air system but the fix was a $15 hose on the top of my engine bay. Overall the quality of the car is top notch and that's unquestionable, I'd recommend this vehicle to anyone.

BMW 3 series I totally enjoy driving my 330i. It performs exceptionally well!

2005 BMW 3 Series 330i

I love my 3 series. I love how it performs on the highway, with its quick acceleration. Although maintenance can be expensive, If you follow the required BMW maintenance schedules, such as regular oil changes, a good set of tires, etc., your car will not require a lot of repairs. I have close to 180,000 miles on my car, I love driving it, and it's a 'sweet drive' on the highways!
