My fancy white 3 series BMW with tan leather interior.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

No problems performance is wonderful comfort it is a little small but leather is very comfortable have good features as well like drive time lighting automatically comes on depending on your location and weather the tires handle the road very well sunroof is very awesome in this car this cup holders they can be positioned a little better because their position right over the passenger's leg area so they do not have very much room when you pull out the cup holders but I like the way that they're inserted into the dash but they could have moved him over a little towards the middle console so wouldn't be in someone else's weight but overall the car is wonderful it is awesome I love it.

How reliable it really is, people just think of BMWs and the one thing that comes to mind is how expensive parts are when in most cases that is not true.

2006 BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3-Series is actually a great and reliable vehicle, i guess my only complaint would be the amount of money they charge for labor for doing anything to it! Just because its a "BMW" I've owned the car for a year already and it really hasn't given me any major problems. I even drove it to Michigan from Texas and back with absolutely 0 problems! I think this is a problem because of Texas' killer heat but some plastic pieces in the window mechanism have broke this summer but i believe it is because of the heat. They're easily replaceable and not very expensive, but other than that, I love my car!

Heated seats are amazing for long distance.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Fully loaded no mechanical issues best car I have ever owned. It is computer let's me know everything is working even low tire pressure it is a luxury vehicle yet very efficient eco friendly and wonderful on gas. I can get around 24 mpg traveling and about 18 mpg in town. Sunroof all leather interior and I have back problems and the seat adjusts for my comfort and both front seats are heated so that adds to my comfort in long trips. Very roomy great for carrying my grandkids around with car seats and I feel safe in this vehicle and caring my babies in it.
