Sold — This was my second car, it was a good car until my ignition went out, and I sent it to a crappy shop that charged me a bunch of money. When I got the are back the windows, a/c, and door locks would not work. The moon roof worked, but not enough air.

Pros: Good fun car

Cons: by picky with mechanics.

German Steel — The performance or build quality needs no explanation, also the appearance must be quite familiar to every living creature on this damned planet. Owning one is not cheap, however tha car itsself is reasonably priced, its a hell of a gas guzzler, and cuz' of the age, parts are likely to go wrong,( but never the engine!) Fun Factor - I guess letters cannot really tell, requires strong self control not to speed around on every open road...

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

Pros: Powerful, loud, aggressive

Cons: Same reasons as to get one

My Baby! — Performance is not the best, but the straight six one of the best sounding. Solidly built, heavy &strong. Looks wise its untouchable, havnt seen another that gets as much attention. Puts a massive smile on your face, even though it drinks like an alcoholic.

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

Pros: Top down, sun is shining enough said!

Cons: Drinks too much & scrapes on every speed bump!

Bmw 320i M Sport 2006 — Classic BMW build quality, fantastic handling (as long as there's no snow) and the sports suspension gives a fantastic feel to an already pokey engine. Great boot size and the compartment is a dream to sit in, nice touch with the electric bucket seats that adjust to grip you snuggly in position.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a BMW

Cons: Its a BMW (but I don't care - the only people that knock them either haven't driven one or are poor)
