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.

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

Pros

Fun, stylish, Cabrio!

Cons

Consumption: 5-8 Km / Liter (or less) in urban areas & traffic.

Good Car! If You Got The Money And Don't Mind The Extra Consumption Go For The 335 Or M3. — Performance - Overall pretty good. Grip at high speed and on snow/ice not always strong. Build quality - Needed lots of minor repairs albeit being 2 years old. Some small noise here & there. Appearance - Very good. Would be perfect if the back would resemble more its Coupè version (more aggressive)! Cost - Consumption is not bad (gas) given the engine size, but still high compared to lots of cars available on the market today. Fun factor - Yep, quite... needless to say at it's best in Spring&Summer!

it's sexy as hell and fast

Cons

expensive to fix

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.
