Great Car — This car is very fun to drive around in. It handles well and rides smooth. The interior is black and the paint color is silver. Very fuel efficient. Has plenty of extras and like the push button start and stop.

Handling

Cons

diesel

Good All Rounder — Good handling, quick pick up for a diesel. Rapid between 30-70. Build quality is solid. Fancy getting a new set of wheels and maybe an ecu remap, oh and maybe some lower suspension. Still get 40 mpg combined fuel consumption

Average Only...not The Best Car But Its Good For Every Used — average car, performance is ok, build quality is so so...used a lots of cheap plastic, appearance is ok, cost of ownership...gas mileage 9.8/100km, maintenance very high...but is very fun to drive...steering quit accurate and precise.

Good pick up

It's A Good Car, It's My Dad's, But I Can Tell That It Drives Smoothly — The car has a great build and is pretty solid. It hugs the road, and it has great acceleration. It averages 27 miles to the gallon so gas won't be too much. The exterior paint job is wonderful (Monaco Blue). Overall I'd say this is an extremely fun car to drive.

My Bmw Lemon, Lol — I've gone through 3 headlights, 1 lock mechanism, 5 tires, and God only knows what else will go wrong before the lease is up in September! Car is by far the most fun I've ever driven, I love the speed, but the mechanics sure do suck!

Look, feel and performance

Try A Beemer. You Will Like It. — I like the look and feel. It drives much better when driven fast. I drive a diesel and it gets great gas mileage. I also like the navigation system. I called it navigation nellie. She never lets me down. My wife calls it the other lady.

Pros

sexy and easy to cruise

Cons

n/a

25

What A Car — the take off is superb, abs and handling is like super cruise. build quality is standard. The leather interior is sexy and the exterrior is worth dying for. as at now the maintanance is not too costly and the car is a must drive car.

Beemer By George

This was a nice car, but temperamental. Seats were comfortable, car was sporty, but the gearshift and transmission were a crapshoot. And lots of vibrations too. Still, it was a sharp car, with good cu... Read More

Yeah, It's A Beater, But It's The Best One I've Owned. By Jason204

For reliable, daily transportation, you can't really beat an E21 chassis. The M10 engine is nearly bulletproof, and everything on the car is so simple to repair. I removed the engine and gearbox in ab... Read More
