New member - 2006 BMW 325i

Hello everybody,

I have recently bought a 2006 BMW 325i with 100,000kms. I absolutely love it!

I would post pictures but it's winter and the car gets dirty so quickly so I'll wait for spring/summer to roll around.

The car is jet black with a tan interior and walnut wood trim.

Looking forward to joining the BMW community.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

Cheers!
Andrew

2006 325/330 are very reliable, had mine for 5 years sold it with 132k miles (210k + kilometers). Regular oil changes, frequent tire replacements, and transmission pan gasket leaked oil at 110k miles.. Besides that no issues, averaged 28mpg commuting. Hoping to repeat the trend with 335is..

Really? I have had my 2006 330xi for about a month now and looks like avg about 20 mpg commuting...but that's driving it pretty hard

I would expect all wheel drive sucks down 2-3 mpg but 28 seems really high for around town...

Around town 21 - 22, commuting aka highway driving 27.6 to 28.3 according to onboard computer. That is steady 65- 85 mph with few traffic lights.. 335is is around 24-26 depending on driving style..

330i was extremely reliable, sold it with 132k miles. I thought it was pretty quick until I drove the iS.. I also have x3 with 100k miles now and it also gets 22 mpg highway driving.. Man hadnt taken off wheels in 60 k miles, wasn't that fun.. Those Michelin tires are beautiful 60 k on them and still 4/32 of tread left. Once the iS eats oem Bridgestone ( shouldn't be too long the way I am driving it ), will also throw set of michelin rfts on it..

According to the BMW dashboard, I'm averaging about 21mpg! Maybe it could be that it's winter time and the roads are all covered in snow and therefore, bad traction. It could also be because I have winter tires on which are generally heavier I believe.

But so far... I LOVE IT!

I just brought the same year model yesterday as well. I hope I have as much good luck as the other people are saying. My pic is in my signature and I have no idea where to start. Never owned a BMW and no very little about them.
