2007 Acura TL vs. 2005 BMW 325xi
I have a hard time deciding between 2007 Acura TL and 2005 BMW 325xi.
The 2005 BMW 325xi is the last model year that has the old classic look that I love. Could not afford one at the time and felt really sorry seeing how they got changed starting with 2006. Meanwhile I fell in love with Acura TL especially the 2007 model. The type S is even nicer. I don’t care about 30HP more or 4 pipes. I just love the back lights.
To make me look even crazier I will confess I have not driven any of the two yet. I am all about looks and these two are the cars I like now and can’t decide. And of course each has to be the right color.
However, there are few other things that I care about, mainly reliability and cost of repairs and here I hope to get some feedback. My colleagues at work keep telling me BMW are notorious for problems. None of them drives one though. They praise Acura, but they don’t have one either.
Anyway, if I get the 2007 Acura, it will still have some warranty left on it and this gives me some peace of mind. That’s what’s in favor of the Acura. In the meantime I would be inclined to favor the 2005 BWM despite the lack of warranty if I can find the xi model (all-wheel drive). These seem to be pretty rare. If I find the 2005 BMW 330xi, this might do the job too.
