Remember the new GTI vs the new Eclipse thread...Well you guys convinced me to get the GTI so I went out and placed an order for a 2007 GTI which will arrive late August (hopefully). Well today, my dad threw a curveball at me and he said that he would rather get me a slightly used (2005) BMW 325i. BMW has always been my love but the GTI is fast and it is Niiiiiceeee. but it arrives in 2 months whereas I could get the Beemer this week.

So help me decide again guys, I really am confused. I like to drive fast and I am going to be commuting to LA a lot from San Francisco.

And reliability of cars is not an issue because the VW is warranted for 50,000 miles and the used Beemer will be completely warranted (everything and anything, even oil changes covered till 100,000 Miles)

Thanks

I love BMW....

They are both extremley nice and they are both extremley fast. You maybe lookin' at a very small difference in speed between the two.

The BMW I think is nicer.....

that has to be a HUGE difference in price i'd imagine. I mean i see 02' 325's with 90k mile selling for 15k and GTI's are what 21k new?

In my eyes the GTI is more aggressive looking and faster but the BMW has leather, prestige, and all that nice stuff, a decent amount of power and is bigger

I NEED TO DECIDE BY TONIGHT. HELP!!!!

SNOVA...why though?


Bumpin Blazer. My dad knows the sales manager at the dealership and he has bought his BMW's from that dealership as well so we get the 325 at the price the dealership buys it at. So basically we prosper and the dealership makes no money on car

We've got an 04 325 here...I absolutely love driving it...

I drive an 06 HHR, so it's not a piece of ****...but going from that to the BMW is such an ego booster...makes you feel so much better...sounds gay, but it's true lol.

The 325 is a slug. But the GTI is a torque monster, u have to drive it to believe it. The car is so much fun to drive.
But then again, "A BMW is a BMW", whatever that means

yeah cost on vehicle's is nice if you can somehow get it. i'm getting my speed6 for 23k and that's the grand touring with leather, sunroof, bose sound system and the 6 disc, it's a 32k car i'm getting at cost. i'm just amazed that it's that cheap even at cost as nada prices those worth 3-6 grand more than what you're paying. how many miles on her?

Thats worth a lot but a $15 bottle of Malibu will do the same

haha...how about u take ur 27k and drop it into a subaru WRX...24k out the door, all wheel drive, turbo. :P then take the other 3k and put a nice system in it. it will beat out both the cars listed above. haha....

on to the question though, I would go with the GTI. BMW's. are played out unless u drop the cash for a 6 series, m class, or maybe a 7 series. Pardon the terminology, but any ***** can get a 3 series. The GTI is an appreciation of German automotive engineering. Have you considered trying to find a nice Audi? The BMW is nice, but the GTI is Hot! If you havea girlfriend/wife then get the GTI, if u need a gf/wife, grab the BMW. :P

Once again the BMW....I don't see why anyone would choose a VW over a BMW. The BMW wins in all catergories hands down!

bmw if you want a car that 99% of people will look at you and think "look what daddy bought him". if you don't care what people think/say then get it as it's a nice looking car. you should try and get your dad to buy you a 525 though;).
