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

The exhaust note and the looks :)

Cons

Side door panels tend to fall off

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

Cool gadgets for an old car

Cons

Leather tears incredibly easily after many years.

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.

325 Td — RWD is the nuts and the torgue helps get the back end out :D could do with more bhp though 115bhp from a 6cyl 2.5 turbo is pants so i think i need to look for a few tuning options

Love It! — I love this car! Looks great for a 15 year old car, better then alot of newer ones on the road. It handles like a dream...couldn't ask for a car the hugs the road like this one does...Really good gas mileage, even if it runs on premium..

BMW, leather, all electric, convertible, perfect handling

Cons

all electric, could use some more horsepower, expensive to maintain

I Love My Car — This is one of the coolest cars ever! Although it has its little problems, mainly with electronics, it runs extremely smoothly. My car is a convertible with a working top. It is so great! She is so much fun to drive, not to torque, but stil able to accelerate.
