Really Fun Car To Own Great Fun — Love this car, gets looks all the time, runs great and is comfortable, love it when the top is down, looks sleek. This car is so tight when the top is up you actually think it is a hardtop and not a convertible.

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

Pros

Great looks, lots of power, many features, age less car, drives great in the snow.

Cons

Tight on the back, gas is premium

Great Overall Car — Great car to own, if you take properly this car will drive you anywhere, snow, rain, sunny days open up the huge sun roof, classy car to pick up a lady, I6 has some kick. Only draw back is tight on the back seats due to AWD, also uses premium gas.

Pros

Amazing to drive.  This car loved me but it treated me like crap.  I got to test drive a lot of other loaner BMWs while mine was in the shop.

Cons

Everything broke.

It Was My Lemon And I Loved It — I researched, and test drove like a maniac for a month before finally getting the BMW. I wanted power and this car had it. Unfortunately, like a cat, this car had 9 lives and used all of them in less than a year...so it had to go back. List of problems: 1) Computer screen blew, replaced, 2) Sun roof motor died, replaced, 3) Mirror retractor motor died, replaced, 3) Bad fuel pump, replaced, 4) Timing belt broke, replaced, 5) Headlight assembly installed incorrectly, repaired, 6) Rear brake sensor cracked, replaced, 7) Vacuum seals not sealed, repaired, 8) Oil line kinked, repaired, 9) and finally, Engine failure, repaired...but that was the final straw. My nine month love affair with my perfect car had to end, and luckily BMW worked with us and let us terminate the lease w/o penalty. This car was like Brokeback Mountain - I didn't know how to quit it. :) I LOVED the car when it was working properly and that darn malfunction light wasn't on, it was perfect. Turbocharged and fast as hell. Beautiful interior, comfortable, sporty, had every convenience possible. After about the third major problem, Neal tried to convince me to give the car back, but I just couldn't, I loved it. I've never driven something so smooth, so fast, something with more than 300 horses! I didn't want to give it up...until I was driving out in the middle of the desert and the engine failure light came on, then reality set in..I had to let it go. At least I got a new MINI out of it. :) We'll try BMW again in a few years, hopefully next time I won't the get the lemon.

My Car — Shes fun and she moves! When she breaks, it really digs into your bank account. If you have the money to play then consider this car. if you don't stay away because there are no cheap fixes when it comes to a BMW.

too curvy exterior for that sporty look, more luxurious than anything really...

Bovarian Motor Werks 3 Series 3.5 Litre V6 (335i) — decent car, performance is delicately gruntish if yo uknow what i mean. very pushy, sticky steering, has no trace of natural understeer or oversteer, weird. Touchy accelerator but tough brake that you dont have to fear to smash your foot into. E-brake is minimal strength, but then again, we're americans, who needs it?

Pros

The performance of the 3.0 twin turbo engine is amazing and definitely the quickest car I have ever owned. The black leather and aluminum trim interior looks sporty with amazing support from the sport seats.

Cons

This car far beats my three prior cars: a 2001 Audi S4 (decent power, good on snow, but absolutely horrid repair costs after it hit 50k miles), a BMW 328 before that (very nice, but tame), and a 430 E-class Mercedes Benz (like riding a comfortable lounge chair with a high-powered engine). It has a perfect mix of comfort, luxury, technology, driving characteristics, and power.

The Best Car You Money If You Can Afford It !!! — Amazing car. This thing handles like no other vehicle and goes like stink. It's got a VERY solid feel to it and puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it. For a car that puts out over 300hp, this thing is amazing for fuel economy (averages about 27mpg). All around, it's been pretty reliable and with free maintenance over the course of the warranty, cost of ownership is fairly low.

Love It. — Back seats are not as comfortable. Cant fit car seat into it. It provides amazing driving experience. Surprisingly big trunk. Front seats are heated and super comfortable with lumbar support. Paddle shifters work well . Sound system is mind blowing. Love the comfort access features.

Great All-round Car — Great family'ish car. LOTS of cargo space. Great quality fit and finish. Great front seats. Four wheel drive for people who want to drive in the snow. Increased my respect for BMW cars. Sold it for $1k more than I bought it for!

Wonderfully good looking and handling convertible.

Cons

Its the little things that wear you down i.e. radio display evaporating, brake warning lite comes on for no known reason.  Tire pressure sensor sends faulty messages.

Nice Fun Ride — I am blessed to currently own a Mercedes, Porsche, and the BMW. I think I can put it best (excluding the Porsche) that the BMW is more comfortable and handles better that the Mercedes but lacks the structural integrity, quality of material and assembly, reliabliity, and substance with value than the BMW
