high maintenance

Nice! — performance and luxury... the only downside is the high maintenance and limited aftermarket parts like turbo, tranny conversions, some bolt ons and interior extras... but it was a great coupe.. so simple to be called a sports car yet so complicated to be dubbed as simple, wll something like that...

One Of The Best German Cars Around! — Extremely good handling, quick response braking, although a diesel has a bit of lag when quickly accelerating. The car looks very sporty for a four door saloon car. It is very fun to drive it, sporty when you want it, comfortable when you need it.

A Good Highway Car. — it is ok with acceleration it is not a very fast car, the braking is good, the handling is pretty good and it has a good grip on the sharp turns. it had no repairs and it is good on the highway. the exterior is red and it is a convertible and it has a nasty looking exhaust tip. the interior of the car is a creme color and is a little tight when you get in. when im in the car i feel kinda sick for some reason.

If I Ever Lost My Job I Would Let My House Forclose Before Letting Go Of The Car — Insane. Next time i'm getting the 335 with the twin turbo:) idrive isn't as bad as it's reputation would have you believe. It let's you put addresses into the nav when your driving, which any touch screen navi won't let you do. 258hp, 0-60 in 5.3.... it screws.

Ultimate Daily Machine — I got lucky and found the exact model I wanted, color and options. Bmws can be used as everyday cars with performance that tops most people's "weekend cars". I dont buy BMWs to show off, I buy them becuase they make motoring a joy.
