Hi

I've just recently begun looking into getting a BMW 325xi for myself. Now i was wondering if this forum could help me with common problems this particular BMW comes with so I can get a clearer image as to what I am expecting in the future as per costs. Thanks for your time.

You will experience the same common E46 sedan problems, however you are adding extra things to go such as:

Outer CV boots (if not taken care of will lead to axle replacements)
Front differential seals
Extra cost of maintenance (Front diff fluid flush - i mean its once every few years depending on how much you drive)
Possible transfer case/front drive shaft repair

These are some items ON TOP of routine E46 maintenance.
