I have had this car two years and I have had nothing but trouble.
There's been costly servicing - I paid nearly 500 Euros for tyres and 100 Euro for a radiator, then one week later the head cylinder gasket went. BMW wanted 3,500 Euros for repair. I got it fixed but now all my electric windows and window wipers are broken.
Without doubt the car looks good - but it's a pity BMW relies on its name. The interior and dash are very average for cost.
Now I'm looking to buy a secondhand Mazda 6.
this definatly is the best bmw ever made. the peformance is great and the haderling is exeptonal, if only they make cars like this these days.
Owned a 325 for 3 years and had no problems (other than the usual BMW battery problems). Great drivers car (make sure you have the sports suspension fitted), enough power. Bit thirsty - I have an XJ8 3.5 now, and get similar consumption.
We bought this car as it was the right price. It is a W-reg 323i with high mileage, though we were told this would not be a problem.
For the first year it was great, with no hiccups, although not the greatest of cars to drive. The slightest road bump pulled the steering.
This year, it needed a new cylinder-head gasket, included skimming the head due to white smoke belching from the exhaust. This cost £1200 at a BMW garage. No oil change was done, nor no new oil filter fitted - we had to demand this.
The driver's side electric window motor was replaced, and now the airbag warning light is on all the time.
Now the wheel bearings need to be replaced and last of all this week a new water pump is needed. The car sits in the driveway waiting to be fixed.
I'm fed up.

Owned for 1 year, as family runabout Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs Cons handling slighly…
Had this car for 90k from new. A 56 plate. In over 2,000,000 miles driven this one has broken down the most of any car I have had. DO NOT get a 2.0…
