We had a 2002 325xi and it was bulletproof. I would look for a vehicle with fewer options, it is the options and electronics that are more likely to fail than the base vehicle. Our 325 had a manual transmission, no premium or sport, but it had heated seats as a special order (and they all have the cold weather package in Canada). When I advertised it I had calls immediately, and the first person to look at it bought it.

I wouldn't worry about lemon years, just look for a 2000 model year onwards, after they had built them for a year.

Thanks JCL!

More than a year later I finally pulled the trigger.
Got a 2002 3-series, but could NOT stop with a 325... ended up with a 330xi :-) see here:

BMW wheel cleaner (pump spray). Low dust pads (Axxis deluxe or equivalent). And a set of winter wheels with 5 large spokes. That was my formula.
