This BMW 323ci is in excellent overall condition. With only 76k miles it is barely even broken in. This is most likely the lowest mileage 323ci you are gonna be able to find. You can tell by looking at it that it's been maintained very well. This is a car that has been loved over the years. It's a real treat to drive, it handles great and rides very smooth. The inline 6 cylinder engine is augmented by BMW's VANOS variable-valve-timing system, the 2.5 straight-six is smooth and has sweet torque traits, but even so, it makes 170 hp. The 5-speed automatic shifts smooth. This is a perfect weekend cruising car.
The interior is very clean and upgraded from the previous generation. The dash and the trim are upgraded to better suit the car's (and driver's) rung on the status ladder. All four seats are more coddling and supportive. With belts mounted to the front seatbacks, there's no annoying strap to flap in the wind when the top's down or to snag one's bouffant while crawling into the back. There's also a button on each seatback to motor the front seats forward double-quick for even easier rear-seat entry (the seats even know to return to their original positions).
The rear seat adds almost four inches of much needed legroom, and the 2.3-inch-wider rear backrest allows two pairs of shoulders to nestle in and fully face forward, unlike in the previous model. Trunk space is increased, at least when the soft top is up. The top well that hangs down into the trunk can now be raised to free up three cubic feet of space. Doing so brings total luggage volume to 11 (up from nine in the E36 ragtop). The rear window is at last made of scratchproof glass, and it's heated. Although the blind spots are wider than in the old car, they're not dangerously so. The optional electrohydraulic power top ($1400, including wood trim, an auto-dimming mirror, and a built-in garage-door opener) works the same as last year's, but it's seven seconds quicker.
Augmenting the 3-cabrio's already impressive safety resume; (front and front side airbags, seatbelt pretensioners) are ISOFIX child safety-seat anchor points and the incorporation of last year's $1450 optional rollover protection as standard equipment. Within 0.11 second of sensing an impending rollover, two roll hoops spring out of the rear headrests.
