3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
Well, here is the story, I price quoted the 325i with some options (leather etc)
on edmunds.com. It was $30,730. My local dealer said it will be at least $32,000.
And according to edmunds, there is a $1,200 incentive too. So I think it is too
expensive than I can afford, my budget was $30,000. I think I'll have to let the
The thing is that all the online cardirect.com, or cars.com etc. they do not have
partners in my area and we only have one bmw dealer up here. So I don't have
much choice in this place, even for certified used bmw cars, I will have to go
through them too, i guess.
Actually, you can tell from the salesman's tone, sort of like "If you want to buy,
good, get your money ready. If not, fine, i don't care".
Anybody have any idea about Acura TSX which provides all cool things, such as 6
speed manual transmission, leather, navigation system. Although it is 4cyl, but it
provides more horsepower than 325i (200hp vs 184hp).
The TSX seems pretty nice except for the 4 cyl engine and it runs about 28K with the NAV. I would suggest you hold off getting the car and save up another 4k and buy the bimmer, but if you have to have a car now, you may want to consided the Accord with a V6 and NAV. The TSX is built off the UK Accord and the US Accord is even a little larger.
Check out the new Volvo S40T5...great performance (better all around then the Acura TSX - for about the same price) ...though - for now - FWD (but a very nice one)...will be avialble with AWD perhaps this fall...
May also want to look into a Euro delivered 325...(or Volvo S40 for that matter)...

Dancingforum. Save up for the BMW or buy
a certified series used 1 year old one. Last
year I bought a 2000 328i for the same price
my daughters boyfriend bought a Acura
2 door model. I'm not sure on the if it's called
TSX or RSX, but there is no comparison.
First of all, the Acura is a front wheel drive car.
The feel and look is like any North Amnerican
car. Second, it's got a high reving 4 banger
which seems highly stressed. NO THANKS.
My 4 year old BMW blows this car away.
I drove the TSX a while ago. NO guts, I went out for the test drive with the salesman, and up a hill I had to floor it just to keep some momentum over a hill, and the salesman had no idea I was even flooring it I don't mean to be rude but I know my car (mazda 626 lx-v6 5 speed) could kick its ass, and i'm not trying to say my car is hot shit, because it's about as far from hot shit as you can be! just my opinion, I don't know that it would make much of a difference but the tsx was auto.
