I always wanted a BMW and when I purchased my CPO 2002 325i back in the summer of '03 it was love at first sight...until the free maintenance and extended warranty expired. After experiencing a power window problem, sloppy steering (worn bushings and ball joints), continual sunshade issues, and mysterious squeaks coming from the rear (I don't even want to know what that is), I've decided to part with my Beamer. After a recent detail, it's sitting in the garage looking pretty awaiting a new owner, perhaps one that will 'bond' with the car more than I and be willing to spend countless hours working on it or shuttling it back and forth to the garage. I can't say I wasn't duly warned about the cost of maintaining a BMW, but I guess I thought these previous owners were exaggerating. I came from a Honda and Acura family and have rejoined them with open arms. My shiny new Acura TSX offers me several options my 325i could not - navigation, Bluetooth, and the comfort in knowing I'll spend a lot less of my paycheck maintaining it. So if anyone is looking to adopt an Alphine white 325i let me know and we'll work a deal.
