Fantastic Car. Hard To Let Go Of It. — One of the best cars I have owned so far. I get about 28mpg on my daily commute to work which is 25 miles each way and mostly highway. Even after 13 years of age and 210000 miles this car looks like it's only a couple of years old.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

If You Don't Mind The Fact That It Only Pushes 180hp Then It's A Great Car To Own. — This car is the first car I ever owned, so naturally I have some loyalty to it. However, at the time it was the cheapest BMW on the market. That means, it's slow, handles OK, and has no bells and whistles. Car has literally been redone from top to bottom with new suspension, upgraded brakes and rotors, intake, software, pulleys, headers, and the list goes on.

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

Pros

The look, the style and the power

Cons

The high maintenance cost

All-round Solid Bit Of German Brilliance — Performance - Good for an auto-gear car, smooth and doesn't feel out of control, bit tough on the handling though Build Quality - Is amazing, car doesn't show age Roughly 22MPG inter city but about 28MPG on the highway. Expensive maintenance though :( Fun to drive when you floor the pedal :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Looks,handles great, and mpg

needs a little more power, 220hp would be great.

Bmw — I wanted a car that could cruise at 100mph and still get 25mpg. it handles very well for a 4 door and has pretty good pickup. The thing I wish it has was more hp, it only has 170hp; for car that weighs over 3000lb its not the fastest. next time I think I'll get a 330i.

Stella — Performance- Slow of the line. Gets a bit quick; definitely not a fast car though. Build Quality-Amazing. The car is solid, nothing loose. Appearance- Other than the rims, i think the car is absolutely gorgeous It has a unique look. Cost- Maintenance is pretty expensive but manageable. Gas mileage is horrible if you speed. -- I enjoy every second in this car--

Pros

Excellent vehicle value and financing (2.9% used!)

Cons

If care breaks, maintainence can be expensive... Takes special BMW oil.

2000 Bmw 328ci — I bought this car because my previous one broke all the time. This car is very dependable, can corner like it's on rails, and feels great to drive. Warms up super quick in the wintertime, and comes with so many luxury amenties you learn that you cannot live without. It really is the ultimate driving machine! Once you have owned a BMW, you will never own a different brand of vehicle. Everyone likes my car, I have never had anyone say anything bad about it.

Bmw Sedan — Its good. Bmw has made a car that is sporty and luxurious. it makes you want to drive so fast when your in that car and makes you tick. so just when you going down to 80 mph in the road. its awesome. This car is amazing. but the maintenance is expensive.
