I'm the fromer owner of a 2000 323ci that had only 19K on the odometer. I actually inherited the BMW and kept it for sentimental reasons. My BMW was babied and maintainted accordingly, yet the plethora of mechanical and electrical problems was uncalled for. Broken sunroof, faulty HVAC controls, faulty batteries, interior trim degrading (even in the garage) problems with the steering column snapping, premature wear to front suspension bushings, power steering leaks, corrosion in front turn… Read Full Review

Had my 323Ci for 6 months now and absolutely love it! I have got cream leather inside, 18" BMW MV2 alloys and set off in metallic gold which I think the original owner all chose as factory extras and sets the car off a dream! The amount of looks you get is unbelievable for a 12 year old car, the amount of people who think your driving around a 40 grand car for a fraction of that! The engine is beautifully smooth and the roar of the 6 cylinder just plodding along through town really is immense… Read Full Review

Excellent sports car. Previous owner had many added extras to the vehicle. Comprehensive vehicle with everything that is required in a vehicle. Looks good inside and out. Drives superb. Great power and torque (although their are better performing cars on the market). As BMW state 'the ultimate driving machine'. Truely agree with their statement. Only downside, difficult to enter/exit vehicle if rear passenger. Otherwise, BMW is the only vehicle i will ever purchase… Read Full Review

the bmw 3 series coupe is an excellent car and very fun to drive. it is responsive, high quality interiors, great looks.
There may be faster cars in the market, but a bimmer is a bimmer and if you have drove one, you'll know it is just not the same.
The coupe is more a bachelor's car or better said a car not intended for family use, it does not have very much space in the rear seat, but then again, who buys a coupe for family use!!
The car is excellent and I am very happy with it.

The BMW 3 Series 323 Ci Coupe has great styling and handling. Excellent build. What can I say that hasnt been said before. It is the ultimate driving machine. I have owned a number of vehicles of quality and performance but this beamer is special. The more I drive this vehicle, the more I have grown to love it. Steering is precise and the engine is responsive (although there are plenty of cars with higher power and torque) that gives out a sweet note when you accelerate. I just love the car… Read Full Review

I have had Audi € s and Fords and drive a company Mercedes so nothing to mad to use as a comparison but none of these had the feel that the BMW gives you as soon as you sit in the car. I had been in a 1.8 compact BMW so knew what to expect in terms of build quality but was so surprised with the power in the 323. I was expecting it to be a bit sluggish considering the size of the car but its true what they say about the 6 cylinder engines (it goes like stink) but just remember you do need to… Read Full Review

You can pick these up quite cheap now and they are a car to be reckoned with but get it thoroughly checked out before you buy, but if it is ok then it is an A+++ from me.
My comparison is to an Audi Quattro 2.3, which served me well and a hard act to follow but I am chuffed now it is fixed. It still feels quick to me even now I am used to the drive that it offers. Carfolio say it is 0-60 mph in 7.1 secs. Had a 'spat' with a 330 Ci and he did not exactly leave me like to make me think 'I must… Read Full Review

Nearly everyone in my family and a couple of my friends own a BMW. The first time I drove one I loved it that much I wouldn't buy anything else since then. They don't call it the "ultimate driving machine" for nothing… Read Full Review

having driven the 323ci se model it truly deserves to wear the blue and white badge. A true sports car in every sense,the BMW 323 Ci Coupe dominates. superior build quality, massive power and torque yet understated insofar as BMWs go. The SE spec boasts every concievable device to make the 323 a pleasure to drive. Few cars i can think of that can even attempt to rival this classic in the making… Read Full Review

The 323Ci is hands down a far better investment than the smaller, 4 cylinder version coupes available from BMW.
The car needs this engine to make it feel right. I drive the 320Ci for a weekend when my 323 went in for a service and I was bored after 30 minutes!
It's all there for you to discover in a 323Ci if you dare drive it like you hate it. The 320 is lifeless in comparison. Out of Curiousity I also drove the 330Ci, which was an absolute beast! Almost too much power - I wonder what an M3… Read Full Review

The BMW 323 Ci Coupe has a relatively small engine by North American stds. at 2.5 litres, yet it can perform like a muscle car when pushed. The tail can be spun out on dry asphalt with the 225 series tires, and on wet it is advisable to always have the traction control on. Paradoxically, when driving in less spirited manner, the fuel economy is quite good and comparable to japanese economy sedans of similar engine displacement. After driving this car for more than 50K km, I am still pleasantly… Read Full Review

The BMW 323 Ci Coupe is a beautiful car that is a pleasure to drive. Very well made with bags of middle range over taking grunt, you must just learn to drop a few gears to overtake-the engine can take it… Read Full Review

In my mind this car falls short of the 318Ci which has a much more willing engine at lower revs (where you normally operate from). Replacement 320Ci is smaller (2.2 litres) and better all round… Read Full Review
