STi to 325Ci
 
What's up guys, I just traded my 04 STi for a beautiful 05 325Ci about two weeks ago.
I do a lot of traveling, therefore needed something a little more comfortable than the raw STi.
So far, I love the 325 as far as comfort and such. However, I do miss the power of the STi though lol.

The car is at 109xxx miles. I just did an oil, oil filter, and spark plugs change.
I'm still browsing through the forum for DIY and such, but is there anything I should be checking at this instant?
The dealership couldn't provide the maintenance history of the car, so I have no ideal what has done to it. Any suggestion/advice is appreciated.

Here is the 325

Also with concerning your maintence. Since dealership couldn't provide maintence records, I would assume at 109k miles cooling system should be done but you should check it and probably freshen up your cooling system with new parts

The STi had well over 130xxx miles, and wasn't in its best shape. I thought the trade was pretty fair.
