    I am looking at getitng a new car and keeping in the 35k range. I was thinking of getting the new BMW 325i, the new model comming out in September. Or a 2005 BMW 525 for roughtly the same price.

    Are you thinking about the new 328i coupe that's due out in September? I think it will have a base price around 37K or a little more but by the time you add options it goes up considerably. The 325i sedan should still be in the 35K range, nicely equipped it may be more like 44K but I suppose it depends on how you want it equipped.

    I just ordered my 2007 335i yesterday. The base model is 40,600 but I added about 9K in options.

    Can't wait 'till October.:cool:

    Wow...

    That's sexy. It looks leaner, more muscular. My eyes immediately go towards the rear end, though. Less invasive of a rear end. The only thing I don't like about it is the taillights. Seems like BMW has been playing with the rear end and taillight design for some time now trying to find something that "sticks." And I haven't really seen a winner yet. This one looks particularly similar to a Hyundai Sonata's rear end.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it though. This isn't meant to be a knock, moreso my own thoughts and observations.

    Me personally? I wouldn't give a dime to BMW corporate, so nothing new. Even worse, I probably wouldn't buy anything newer than a 95 M3, which to me is the epitome of a sports sedan....

    However, for $35k, you can definitely get a cherry 330i ZHP (Performance Package) which is for most enthusiasts a much better car than any 325 of any iteneration...

    For you, we need to know what you'll use it for? Any track, hard driving? Hauling 4 kids? hauling clients? etc etc. Cars are tools, and it helps to know the job you want to do before you pick a tool. Although sometimes you pick up a tool and learn to love the job its for, but I digress....

    Sorry, I don't see Hyundai at all. I see a little more resemblance to:

    Sure, it looks exactly like its bigger cousin. But I don't understand how you can say you don't see it at all. I mean, look at it, and please, be honest. It's not about proving me right or wrong, it's about me not thinking I'm crazy.

    I mean they don't look IDENTICAL, but they have some pretty strong shape similarities, the "reverse" light is built into the design underneath the red "brake" light... working into a trapezoid-shaped license plate area (albeit upside down on the BMW)...

    somebody tell me I'm not crazy. Seriously, don't you see some resemblance? I mean, it didn't strike me (the similarities) for schits and giggles. I immediately thought, "hmm, that looks kinda like the Sonata rear."

    BMWs are for drivers, it's a shame to have one and not drive it.

    A nice 330xi is sweet, the z is nice too.

    525 is a wussed out excuse for a bimmer.

    Get a few year old M.

    Can't go wrong in t a 3 series

    You could probably p/u a 2-3 year old M3 for that 30-35 range. You won't be dissappointed.

    If I could live with only 2 doors, that would be what I am driving now.


    Even the 328 or 330 will leave you smiling.

    I'd personally go with the 2003 M5...thats just my taste for BMW's or smaller M3 but sounds like you want 4 doors.

    I spent approx $36K for my '06 325. Not "loaded", but "nicely equipped". :cool:
    I've read where people got better deals than that.

    Ordered it with manual trans (of course ;)), Sports Pkg, Premium Pkg, Xenon headlights, Comfort Access, metallic paint.

    I just got word that production on 335i's with Navi has been delayed until September. That means mine won't arrive here until late Oct or early Nov.:miff:

    The good news is it will be coming with Real-time Traffic Information integrated with the Navigation System. A new feature for the 2007 3 & 6 series. :cool:

    Now I can't wait for November.
