The Machine — The bmw e30 325 is the ultimate bmw one of the best machines ever built. The acceleration is great and can whip most cars. The braking and handling are solid regarding its age and absolutely great to drive.. gear ratios, power from da motor and weight of the car has made all this possible. low driving speeds are however very irritating in this car.

Pros: handling, power. road luking over side window(drifting)

Cons: not good for low speeds and inexperienced

Not Good Enough For Its Money — Excellent acceleration, braking and handling. The steering wheel is a little too big, seats are not ergonomical. Excellent build quality, unhappy with the electronics and electrical equipment. Styling is great, but indoor space is insufficient. Cost of ownership can be quite high due to expensive support. The car is definitely fun to drive. I can recommend it if value-for-money considerations are not a factor in your choice.

Pros: fast, solidly built, corosion-resistant

Cons: prone to electric failures, erratic road behaviour in winter conditions

Bmw ''cube'' — Fun Factor - Really fun. E-Brake is really fast responding. Appearance - Well after a few spoilers and a sweet set of rims... It looks GREAT! Build Quality - Quite solid. After a few ''bumps'' it was fixed really fast and CHEAP! Cost of Ownership - Not expensive. Doesn't spend much gas. Maintenance is after about every 100k km. Depends on the shape of the car. Great car indeed

Pros: Everything

Cons: Year and the condition of it if it isn't controled regulary.

My Favorite Car To Own And Drive Of All Time. — All year round late 80's sports car. Loved the AWD. BMW race heads and Remus exhaust and a short throw made this car come alive even though it wasn't sports car fast for the millennium. Still a quick car. This car with 230k when i sold her still had stock bottom end and this pulled hard.

Pros: All year round driver.

Cons: It's a BMW parts are not cheap.

Cheap, Reliable And A Joy To Drive — When I bought it last year it had only 108,000 km on the clock. It is in perfect condition, ages very well, is absolutely reliable and is a delight to drive. If you want a nice reliable RWD car with a real engine for no money at all, the six cylinder BMW E30 is the car you want !

Pros: Handling, great soundtrack, confortable, solid as a rock

Cons: Big steering ratio

Get One! — Amazing for a 20 year old car, The build quality of BMW's is unbelievable. Paint is a little rough, but that's no big deal. I get around 30 mpg highway, 22 city with a 5 speed manual. Very fun car to dive, couldn't ask much more out of this little beauty.

Pros: Cheap, fast, great build quality

Cons: alot of brake dust and road noise, "it's so cute" comments from women

Bmw...need We Way More — This is my first EVER BMW. If it's any indication of the build quality of all BMWs, then I will never buy domestic again! This thing is solid. At 20 years old, most cars would be hobbling along, sputtering every time you throttle up. This thing never hesitates, takes corners like it's brand new, and generally is in better shape than me. It's deceptively large. While it isn't much longer than my 2 door Sentra was, this thing can handle much more cargo, and has ample leg room for my 6'2" 200lb frame.

Pros: Excellent body
Smooth shifting
Excellent in corners
It's authentically European

Cons: It's old
6 pack CD changer pops out when you hit too many bumps
Mild burning smell comes when running hard
