Pros

Comfort, performance and styling.

Cons

Nothing.

Performance, Style... It Has It All. — A classic in every sense of the word. style, comfort, performance and a head turner. The 325ic is a dream to drive. Its V-6, 2.5 litre with 189 bhp will pin you to the seat. Iit hugs the pavement at any speed. Handling is responsive and accurate. As with all BMWs, it is solidly built, giving the driver and passengers a real sense of security. Gas mileage is reasonable, averaging about 9 litres per 100 k. And its all wrapped up in timeless styling.

Bmw E36 — Has over 240k on it and still runs like a champ. The ultimate car for reliability. Very comfortable leather interior, smooth and silent straight 6, perfect 50/50 weight distribution, excellent handling and build quality. Great daily driver, gets around 30mpg

Great engine, great performance

interior could have had a better build

94 Bmw 3series — Despite it being a rather old car it drove and handled better than most of my other cars. The engine ran strong despite its age and milage (I brung it over its 200k mark) but little things on it were cheap and could have had been make of better materials. (a lot of cheap plastics)

we didnt get killed hitting a tree

Cons

Not a Snow Toy

The Tank — I barely got to drive it I was helping the tow truck guy get it out of the snow from when my friend was taking me home and we lost control in the snow and went through a snowbank into a ditch and a tree. The car was a tank and we didnt get hurt and the fender only dented just enough to where we couldnt drive it

Perfect — It's BMW 316 coupe with black engine.It's green metallic.I consider that it' a fast car strong and attractive.It have a good acceleration perfect handling and perfect stability.the problem that it's an old car.it's fast comfortable sport and stable car so i love this car although it's an old car with old engine but it's a BMW coupe.

Makes you feel like you have money

Cons

Parts are expensive

Its Ok — It is an inline 4 cyl with variable timeing I do believe so it did not put out the best power and acceleration. it was poorly built or kept by the previous owner, the interior was missing door panels, shifter was bent, soft top was a little torn. Appearance was over all ok, the exterior was missing a trim piece but other than that it was good, the interior looked awful. it was cheap on gas and the maintenance level was low. It wasnt to fun of a car, its main reason was to get me from point A to B

The exhaust note and the looks :)

E36 Daily Driver Short Overview — Very good car, excellent handling and a feeling that you're driving a real car. You don't feel electronics kicking in :) Cost of ownership depends upon how you take care of the car, just like any other. If you have a good car that has been taken care of, service won't be a hassle and the engines are very reliable in the e36 :) Only problem could be gas consumption! :P

15 Yr Old Car — Wonderful car, got into an accident and I barely felt it. Even though it was 15 years old, I was still able to go faster than 120 mph. It still is a desirable care if you kept it in wonderful condition.
