At the entry level for BMW performance vehicles, the 3-Series
has by necessity, got a different model for every taste
and power requirement. The most accessible versions are
equipped with 2.5-liter engines and this engine level has
sedan, coupe, convertible and wagon editions. For the most
part, despite very different uses and orientations from
family security to classic performance and touring style,
the 2003 BMW 325 models have a similar trim level and buyers
can expect a high level of interior amenity and elegant
The 2003 BMW 325 models include the following: The 2003
BMW 325i and 2003 BMW 325xi (available as a sedan and sport
wagon), the 2003 BMW 325iCi coupe and the 2003 BMW 325Ci
The 2003 BMW 325 level offers extensive standard fittings
as well as useful optional extras. Standards include 8-way
adjustable front seats with leatherette upholstery, a 4-spoke
leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a front seat
center armrest with a storage compartment and split-fold
rear bench seating. Automatic climate control and one-touch
power windows add more value.
More features can be added as options. The availability
of a premium audio system rain-sensing wipers and an automatic
dimming rear view mirror mean that people can add significant
luxury amenity to this essentially near-luxury BMW entry.
The standard exterior features on the 2003 325 BMW models
include standard free-form halogen headlights, heated power
mirrors and heated windshield washer jets to make for good
visibility in all weather conditions. Styling echoes BMW's
distinctive classic image making this a prestige vehicle
line up that will look good in any driveway.
The basic 2003 BMW 325 engine choice is a 2.5-liter overhead
cam I6. This can be fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission
or a 5-speed steptronic automatic with Adaptive Transmission
Control. The 325 gets about 184 hp at 6000 rpm and 175 lb-ft
of torque at 3500. It can do a 7.1 second 0-60mph time trial.
These models are rear-wheel drive cars but the Xi models,
a wagon and a sedan are available, have permanent all-wheel
drive that adds versatility and adverse condition control.
Safety and Security
The safety portfolio is very impressive. All models have
antilock brakes and an assortment of airbags including dual
front-impact airbag Supplementary Restraint System (SRS)
with dual-threshold and dual-stage deployment and front-door-mounted
side impact airbags.
