Bmw 316, 1986, Review — I loved the car so much. It used to throw it's butt from side to side very easily with a little twist on the steering wheel when you're on a low gear. It lacked some power though, and I would have been happier to have a 325.

Pros: everyithing

Cons: Heating problems.

Frankenstein Eta — Best Sports Saloon ever built. Monster low end torque, leading to good trap speeds, and 0 - 100 times. If you decide to swap teh engine head to a 323i part, then it transforms the cars character into a real sport car, essentially creating a 327i. Classic, timeless looks, direct intuitive steering. SHEER DRIVING PLEASURE.

Pros: Moster Torque for Engine Size, Timeless Looks, Great Build Quality.

Cons: Expensive Parts

My 325 Economy Car — I like that the car gets 25-30 MPG. I like that my car is a 4 door. I hate that my car is not fast like most cars. I like that my car only costed 1300 yet I have put 2200 into it. Overall it is a great car to drive around and go somewhat fast in. It just needs some work!

Pros: MPG, space, cost

Cons: performance, appearance

Probably The Best All Round Car I've Owned Thus Far! — I bought this car (In Ivory) when I was 18. Most of my friends will know that I enjoyed driving it so much it became the taxi around Cape town, if we were moving, we were moving in MY BM!

Pros: EXTREMELY tight, especially around a bend. Amazing sound, great performance and an absolute pleasure to drive.

Cons: Thirsty, especially under my size 11 foot...

Wish I Knew Her Parents — bought this one used, wish it was stick rather than automatic. i like the features but hate not having an owners manual. like, what does the letter "s" on the gear shift column stand for? my mechanic couldn't even answer that one. what i love about BMWs in general is the solid feel on the highway and the turning ratio. and i prefer the older body style like this one has.
