Pros

THIS IS AN AMAZING CAR AND i HAVE WANTED ONE FOR AT LEAST 15YEARS - AND I'M MORE IMPRESSED WITH ITS LUXURIES AND OVERALL STATS THAN EVER BEFORE! DEFINITELY WORTH DRIVING ONE AND FEELING LIKE A MILLION BUCKS! :P

Cons

NOTHING - can you believe that? However I would definitely want it to sound like it feels a bit more - however thats it! :)

Priceless — Well I haven't had it even a week yet: Performance Acceleration isn't too bad however it lags within the first few 1000 revs Handling is fantastic - even being a rear wheel drive which I'm not used to, this car does an amazing job of sitting on the road around corners and straights - I don't feel like I'm gonna bliksem out of control The brakes are sharp. very sharp and doesn't take long to come to a complete stop. Build Quality I live on a dirt road, and one does't feel a bump or squeak. its a smooth drive and I'm genuinely impressed - even for an 18yr old car! Appearance Its still a stock standard car and the quality of the leather and interior is beyond me. I had a Honda Ballade same year - the leather cracked very quickly - unlike the BMW's Cost of Ownership Look its expensive on gas - but what do you expect from that amazing engine? but yet I'm impressed with the manageability of its consumption! I haven't had any maintenance costs as yet - will be sure to elaborate once I do! The soft purr of the engine makes you feel like the silent type about to wipe out your competition!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

sporty feel, sleek styling, BMW, great color combination, RWD, manual

Cons

Reverse is left of 1st, full-time traction control, 155k mi

25

Still Searchin For This One — another car buy "prospect" that got bought before i could buy it. car was the total package for me because ive always wanted a bmw 2-dr coupe manual. test drove it and made me so anxious to get it. its a blast to drive, just needs to eliminate always-on traction control. acceleration was nice, top speed near limitless, ammenities inside were definitely a plus (moonroof, tranny modes, gauge cluster configuration, driving position
