An amazing car to drive!
Having owned over 25+ vehicles through my driving years, from Fords, Holden's, Honda's, Nissan's, Alfa Romeos and more, I can say without hesitation that the BMW Coupe I purchased less than a month ago is the most complete car I have ever experienced. The cars road manners are impeccable, it just feels like it's glued to the road, whether winding through the hills or cruising down the freeway. The control layout and driving position are a joy to behold; from the moment you sit in the beautifully sculpted Leather seat, you feel so comfortable. T...he 2 Litre Diesel engine has surprising pickup for it's size and power output, particularly in the mid-range area, where the abundant torque makes overtaking swift and effortless. Factor in the amazing fuel economy (well over 1000kms to a tank on the open road) and the car makes a strong statement for owning a diesel powered car. I might add, I have owned 3 diesel engined vehicles before, but nothing like this. It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it!
My father recently purchased an '09 325i Coupe and it is a fantastic piece of machinery. It looks stunning, much better than the 4 door and sits beautifully on the road. It has so many features theres to many to list. The car sounds fantastic and the engine + transmission work great together. To achieve the sporty looks of the car it has firm suspension and big wheels which cause a harsh-ish ride but it feels extremely solid and hugs the bends because of it. There is plenty of room in the back for passengers which is a suprise and the seats hol...d you in quite well. BMW have not gone cheap on the interior with beautiful leather trim and polished woodgrain. One tip I would give to prospective buyers: The 323i has the same 2.5L motor as the 325i however in the 325i the engine is tuned providing it with much better performance than the 323i. The 323i felt sluggish and slow compared with the 325i. Great looking machine. Very quick. Sounds great. Interior is a beautiful place to be. Room in the back for passengers. Slightly harsh ride comfort (big wheels and low suspension cause it). Run flat tyres.
