I think someone else on this board says it best- When I was picking up this car, I was already thinking of what to replace it with The car is great, it has given me alot of enjoyable driving, but it is time for something new. The second round was pretty good... no major dilemmas, just the typical early production E46 issues. I am hoping that they have fixed all the little problems by the time the 2002s came around.robg said:Curious Drbimmer-- what's prompting you to replace the 2000 w/ the 2002?
"Considered" a few other cars, but in the end I was very satisfied with what I had so I knew that I didn't need much more. I think the 325 will be a little bit of an improvement, but it won't be a huge change, which is what I don't want.robg said:Cool drBimmer. I guess you've found the 2.5 liter e46 to be your "perfect car". Did you ever consider trying something else-- maybe a 330 or a 5 series? What differences are you looking forward to on the 2002 vs your 2000? I have a 2001 325i- and am always toying w/ the idea of what will be next. I had an infatuation w/ the 5 series for a little bit-- but htat seems to have died for now. Did you consider anything else?
