Bmw 325 Ix E-30 Limited Edition Dec. 1985 — The first AWD made by BMW. First series, special edition with Blue Leather interiors and Climate control. 5 Speed Manual

Pros: Excellent traction on the snow. Very strong acceleration (still 0/60 in 8 seconds straight)

Overall — car pays for itself...has lasted 25 years, and does fine with gas consumption, drives like its the 1980s. The car is a little old and needs TLC every now and again, but overall, the car drives great, everything works and is an enjoyable ride.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 25 years old and still drives great

Cons: repairs are a little costly, but its 25years old....its not brand new.

Its German — This car had been sitting in a garage for 7 years when i bought it. They never started it never moved it. I changed the gas and purged the lines put a battery in it stated right up and have been driving it with out a problem. It has and inline 6 engine automatic trans. It is a little slow off the line but has one great top end acceleration. It rides really well. takes corner like you wouldn't believe possible from a rear wheel drive. fully loaded and only has 108,*** miles

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great drivers car. Interior is the best, drive train is spot on.

Cons: snow and rain there great for fun but dont be in a hurry. this car loves dry road
