1992-1995 BMW 325i

BMW 325i

Pros :
- One of the best sports sedans in terms of handling.
- BMW prestige and build quality.

Cons :
- Tight rear legroom.
- Minor engine problems.

The current BMW 3-Series is said to be one of the best sports sedans in the world, and the older 325i can hold its own against the new generation. The 1992 year marked the introduction of BMW's award-winning in-line 6-cylinder engines.

The 325i was the top-of-the-range 3-Series model at the time, with coupe and convertible versions available as 325is and 325ic respectively. But the sedan provides the best value for money, as it has the handling dynamics of its two-door siblings and it has four doors. Rear passenger room is as tight as any subcompact, but there is a decent amount of trunk space due to the high rear sill. The 2.5L 189 hp engine has enough power for spirited driving and four-wheel independent suspension keeps you in control. The 2.5L engine was the 3-Series' top workhorse until a new 2.8L engine was introduced in '96. The body style remained the same until a new shape was introduced in '99. You can get a '94 sedan for under $15,000.

Build quality is excellent, but certain engine problems have been reported, such as failure of the fuel pressure regulator, ignition coils and such. Although repair of such problems is affordable, be sure to check for these faults.
