Pros

Makes you feel like you have money

Cons

Parts are expensive

25

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

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

Pros

Light
Quick
Beautiful handling
Looks great
Perfect ergonomics

Cons

Needs more power

55

Light, Fun, Quick. Huge Fun To Drive Factor. — 2.5L I6 Engine. Seriously, I think inline-6 motors are the most beautiful song in the world. This one was a little low on power, though. Really fun to drive, and light as a feather. Like one of BMW's ads say, "Fun is not around the corner. Fun is the corner." I think this is the embodiment of that ad. However, it was pretty slow in a straight line. Amazing to thrown around and meticulously maintained, however.

Pros

Comfort, performance and styling.

Cons

Nothing.

35

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.

rwd

Cons

power

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
