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

Pros: quality construction, good styling

Cons: repair shops may not be cheap, some part houses think you are there gold mine

If I Could I'd Still Own This Car. — Purchased for $500 with a twisted frame, then poured money into it at more and more frequent occasions the longer I owned it. However, the car was tough, having survived numerous collisions. Overall mileage at quitting time was at 225,000+ miles. Interior was in decent condition, exterioir was rusty and had front end damage. The car was a 4-cylinder with a 3-speed auto, and FR. I fell in love the BMW brand within a week of owning this car. Nevertheless, it was a very fun car to drive.

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

Pros: German engineering.

Cons: None.

Great Car To Learn How To Drive Rwd — Performance from the factory on this model was non existent, it was designed for good fuel mileage. However, she evolved quite well after modifications and running 92 octane fuel. Of course it handled well once you learned how to drive with excessive body roll. Fun factor was high for me. You got to love RWD.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everbody needs to drive a E30 BMW

Cons: She's a gold digger

'84 Bmw 325e — I've only owned the car two months, however at 25 years of age and 245,000 Kilometres on the clock this car still has a ton of power and is very reliable. It has no squeaks and rattles or visible rust. Everything still works.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The rear wheel drive makes this a lot of fun to drive entusiasticly (not reccomended for unskilled drivers).

Cons: Family member like to 'borrow' it.

Huh? — It is very fun to drive. Performance is very good considering the age and the many owners its had. Build Quality could have been better, wasn't in the greatest condition when bought. It took along time to figure what was actually wrong with it but after it was fixed it runs like a dream. Appearance - I really like how it looks. Some people with lesser brains sometimes see it as a piece of junk, but I know better. It has been very cheap to own. I get great gas mileage with it. It is usually around 28 mpg, which seems pretty amazing considering the power and 6 cylinder engine. Fun factor - it is very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fun to drive.

Cons: Somewhat ugly from the rear.

First And Most-loved Bmw; Started The Obsession —

My '84 BMW was actually a gray market car, with a European engine and, in the words of my local BMW parts guy, the fastest factory 3-series he's ever driven. It did quite literally feel like it was on rails, with zero bodyroll and complete traction on most curves at around twice the suggested speed. From this description, of course, it shouldn't be surprising that I ended up sliding off a country road into a concrete wall ;-), but there were many factors involved in that accident including gravel on the turn and a moment of lost attention. Anyway, the car had around 190,000 miles after the 35k I put on it, and it never had an issue that was beyond cosmetic. The European version of the '80s 3-series cars were often superior to the exports, and this one was no exception. Seats were upgraded buckets and were very comfortable. The previous owner was very much a fan of the car and had done a lot of hidden upgrades to the handling, etc. I never could get ahold of him to ask specific questions, as it was a friend of my father's who moved away and we never heard from him again. But I digress. Anyway, this started my love affair with the '80s BMW's, which at this point are an incredible steal and highly overlooked by the general populous. An example in good condition can quite easily bring tears to your eyes through the sheer thrill of piloting it. A lovely, lovely car that I truly miss.

Pros: Pretty much everything...

Cons: Maintenance can catch up to you if it's been mistreated or your records are incomplete; concrete always wins

'84 Bmw 325e With 32,147 Miles. — For an '84 model it's way ahead of its time. The on board computer is a charm, telling you how many mpg you are getting, the temperature outside, how many miles before empty, and setting a code where no one else can start it except you. The brakes stop on a dime, even without ABS. It's stylish and has a very classic look to it. Built for fuel economy back in the 80's, I manage 36 MPG. They are fairly cheap to own, but you have to be willing to get dirty and do a fair amount of work on the car yourself. It handles like it's on rails and is a blast to drive.

Pros: Power, gas mileage, handling, braking, and style.

Cons: Metal bumpers.

Brittney — My very first car my uncle, aunt, and father bought me. They bought me a stick, and taught me how to drive it. It drove very well for a while until the transmission crashed. The technician they bought it from was a master technician that decked the car out. Sound system, M Racing Pedals, etc.

Pros: Cool Added Features

Cons: Age
