BMW 323

In 1999, the BMW 323 became the entry-level car for BMW's 3-Series Sedans. It was issued as a replacement for the 318 in the North American market. This car is intended to reach those drivers who can afford either the top-of-the-line model of a mid-range automaker but could be swayed to go for the classier BMW. Drivers who choose the BMW 323 will also be impressed with the level of luxury that is available in an automobile. The 323 nevertheless builds a strong case for selecting luxury add-ons. The 3 series cars have a long history of being enormously popular, and yet they seem to continue to be improved, at least in the eyes of critics and drivers. Automotive journalists have by and large given the car high marks since a complete redesign was completed of the 3-Series line up in 1999. The specifications under the hood are a dream. Unlike its four-cylinder precursor, the 323 has a 2.5 liter, inline six. The most recent models have pumped out 174 horsepower and have been operated by a six-speed manual, which is offered as standard equipment. If you are looking to get your hands on one of these, you will have to look in the used market. In 2001, the 325 replaced the 323. Of course one could always go straight ahead and purchase the 325 is they so pleased. Or, another option open to prospective buyers is to take a trip to Canada where the 323 is still available and in fact it underwent a minor resurgence after the reintroduction of the 323. Like a good piece of jewelry, this car never goes out of style, and the performance that if offers is still able to compete with the technologic enhancements that are being made available today in other models.
