I'd buy the M3 now that I've seen how good the 325ci is
The right side mirror is supposed to tilt down when I put the car in reverse. It stopped doing that for a while. Now it's doing it again. It's probably a wire going off and on somewhere. Shouldn't happen on a brand new car though. A couple of my other friends complained about small things like that too. Sunroof wires, tail lamp wires et cetera.
This car took time to grow on me. The only things I liked about it when I bought it was exterior styling and engine. The dealership is VOB in Rockville, Maryland and they are known for high volume sales. Good for them. I found the majority of the people there arrogant, conceited and all round ignorant. I did like the person I worked with though he tended to be dismissive once in a while too. If you get away from all that though, and take care of the car, you find that it's not only beautiful, but a joy to drive. It's fun to find a winding road and see how well it grips the tar. I plan a couple of body upgrades, and of course new wheels and tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
