This Car Is A Daily Driver To Keep My Nice New Car Nice. — Things I like: Seats, greenhouse, entry access and exit ease, power and did I mention the stick, it is a dream. Things I don't like are age related versus design, style, or performance items. Seats had to be rebuilt, dash cluster a nightmare, electronics so complex as to make one look for simpler vehicles to mess with. This is not recommended for beginners and first time BMW ownership. At this age the sorting is rather constant and appears to be never ending, but the old guy starts everyday and hasn't missed a beat.

Pros: This old guy looks pretty good, runs great, and the 5 speed is both rare and a joy to drive.

Cons: Black is beautiful but a pain in the hot days of summer.  A/C just doesn't cut it some days.

Good Car It Was Gold In My Eyes And Silver In Others. — Got this car from the same guy i get all my cars from and i trust him alot. it was a great car at 16 the car was not as fast off the line as my saab but was much faster top end. i didnt know how to drive standard as well as i thought i did and many poor down-shifts ate my clutch and the rebuild was going to coast too much so i had to sell the car with 240k

Pros: luxery and performance

Cons: expenisve and little annyoing problems

A Really Good Car And Its A Pleausre To Drive It. — Its a big car but it still handles good. Its has a really good quality! It is a luxury with a sporty touch, so it rides comfortably but still performes well when pushed faster. It has good brakes and stops quick.

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

Pros: To feel how a car should handle

Cons: Its getting old and need some attention.
