My Ride: 2004 BMW 325Ci
Lots of Issues but Still All Love

Hi,

I just got my '04 325Ci w/ 58K on the clock about a month ago She has the sport and premium packages. However, in this short time, the CEL has been on twice and I've already replaced the DISA valve, the lower control arm bushings, the outside temperature sensor, the drive belts, the master key, and the valve cover gasket, and cleaned the fuel injectors.

Despite all these issues and the two grand I've spent fixing them, I still LOVE this car! Oh, did I mention it needs two new tires too! LOL. It is without question the most fun car I've ever driven and BMW has a customer for life with me. I will never drive anything else. I should have bought one a long time ago.

Whoever owned her before me obviously didn't take car of her like they should have but no need to worry I am going to take extra good care of her so she'll take good care of me.

Welcome and nice car!

Sucks you've had all that trouble. My car's been pretty trouble free other than problems cause by the previous owner, but I still luv it too.
