Solid Fun — Safety, Gadget-Heavy, Torque-Heavy....good words to describe this car. Very Very reliable, and BMW Finally got cup holders right on this sucker....has a neat connection for my iPod, and a little knob that controls everything in my car.

Pros

engine; straight forward and easy to use controls, good stock sound system, leather, good seat travel for me (i'm 6'6"), that fact that its German made.

Cons

smallish rear cargo area.

25

. — I love everything about this car, but the smallish trunk (not small for its class) makes it hard to road trip with.

My Moms Car. — Man I wish I owned this thing. So much fun to drive at any speed. Very good economy when equipped with valve-tronic. Excellent stereo and lots of really cool small features. 6 spd. automatic

Pros

- Excellent performance with the Inline 6 255hp engine.

Cons

- Smallish interior in the back seat; even worse if you're tall and sit in the rear.

The Best Sports Sedan — The BMW 3-Series has always been a benchmark for Compact Luxury Sports sedans. The newly redesigned 3-Series sedan (aka E90) is no exception. It's pure driving excitement that one must drive to fully understand. This is truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine." :)

Beautiful Car. Excellent Performance. Horrible Electonically. — Beautiful car. Excellent Performance. Horrible Electonically. Extremely expensive for what the car had. To have the car up to my specifications I had to add too many extras that did not work.

Pros

Very reliable but no more so than a Honda.

Cons

Belly-button car. Makes crappy drivers think they are good enough for F1.

20

Excellent Appliance. — Some electrcal issues. Run flat tires are terrible. Push button start with key fob in the dash is stupid. Transmission (Steptronic) is hokey. Service plan is cool but it isn't really free like BMW claims. They just build the "free maintenance" into the price of the car.

Pros

Silky smooth acceleration, solid construction, amazing stereo, no rattles or squeaks.

Cons

Same belt tensioner problem since 2001, but at least it only makes noise in the winter.

This Is What I've Been Missing All My Life! — BMW couldn't have come up with a better slogan, "The ultimate driving machine." This vehicle was truly made to be driven, especially driven hard. For once, a "tiptronic" automatic transmission that actually changes its shifting characteristics to a more noticeable degree. Precise steering response and tight suspension make this 4 passenger luxury coupe feel more like a 2 seater sports car. If you're looking for a practical car thats reasonable on gas mileage and has a sports car feel, BMW has it!

Not Worth The Money By 1978TA
