Awesome. — This car is Amazing. Minus the need for a paint job, this thing is built solid, handles brilliantly, oversteer and understeer. Acceleration is great, braking is predictable, i wouldn't say the best. Only had problems with the cooling system, and that was only the need for new hoses.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Handling.

Cons: Why would you?

The Best Vehicle In The World *well Right Up There With Rovers* — This is the epitome of the ultimate driving machine. Solid build decent performance and the sexiest lines one could ever possibly hope for. These newer BMW's are nothing more than Yuppie Fords. Seriously if you want a lame ride? go buy a benz!

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

Pros: Nobody does it like the Germans

Cons: Finicky, must show love

Pros: telekenetic handling

Cons: i don't know what you mean?

E30 Eta — best car to own if you know anything about cars. easy to fix, easy to source most parts, large fanbase for help. One strong car. It's 23 y/o and still pulls hard, corners great, and gets 28mpg. Still kicks ass at the autocrosses. It's one awesome car. great on the track, great on the road, great on the highways. No other car comes close.

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

Pros: it has more things standard than most new cars have as options.

Cons: some parts cost way too much for a car of this age and it has a 4800 redline

E30 Ita Race Car 325e — I like the way it handles. very fast around corners. the car has more brakes then it knows what to do with. the acceleration leaves alot to be desired. what do you expect it came with 121 hp. for 2009 i think the car will make about 140 hp to the ground

Pros: carner ability

Cons: no acceleration

A Dependable Car — It's a 524 td. but for some reason this app doesnt have that choice. It's small... but it's nice cuz i put diesel in it and it's 50 cents a gallon and it has a/c. for an old car it runs well and it has survived 1 crash. no major problems with it. bavarian cars are the best =). "let's motor"

Pros: it's a BIMMER hello that says it all.

Cons: smells like chicken =)

Ageless — Not too bad of a drive. My mom's second car. It got her places but not much can be said about it. I mean, it was a very old vehicle that not much was expected of. Not recommended for a buy since there are cheaper and more efficient cars now.

Pros: Driving Ability

Cons: Very Breakable

Bmw 325i — Its built like a sherman tank so at least you know you will be safe in an accident. The performance is fantastic and knows how to run but since it was built at the start of the computer revolution there was a few minor computer issues but once fixed you have no problems at all.

Pros: Great structure

Cons: Minor computer issues
