I've Got A 325i Sport, Delphin Grey, Original (no Mods) With 103k Miles On The Clock — These 3-series are lovely - they look great from the outside, and they're a pleasure to drive, it shows great poise on the road - acceleration is great, brakes are a tad vague compared to modern brakes but they're more than adequate when ya get the feel of them.. It's quite thirsty, but I try not to use it for every-day runs. The rear wheel drive experience is excellent if you're carefull, personally I don't drift, diff or slide intentionally! The black leather interior really sets the car off with it's Delphin Grey paint. It scrubs up well on a sunny day! I spent about 2/3 years looking for a good clean version of this car, and I love the one I have - I'm not selling!

Pros: Gives you a smile everytime ya drive it, great poise!

Cons: The older cars had poor rust-rating, and I need to do some light repair to both rear wheel arches

My Blue E30 — perforamce... well its no m3 but it can hold, but still could use some power. built wise. the engiene is not bad. a few repair but nothing major, not bad for a 20 yrs old car. i love the way it looks. i still get some compliments and some offers. if you have driven a convertable you will always want to have one.

Pros: love the looks, and its pretty cheap to maintain.

Cons: could use more power

Still A Great Bmw — For what is now an older, inexpensive car, the 325i is a reliable get around car with reasonable power relative to its size. Typical issues are brakes and interior. Paint, and new door seals are probably necessary by this age as well, but all in all a great buy. Mine has 234,000 miles.

Pros: Inexpensive, reliable

Cons: BMW Dealership repair costs, find a reliable mechanic

A Nice Car, Mean But Fair — This car replaces my 318i which I already loved. Pluses are the double size engine, the automatic transmission and the condition this car is in after now allmost 20 years. Petrol consumtion is a bit out off date but still today you find carss burning up 11 liters on a hundred kilometers.

Pros: Never let me down

Cons: non turbo charged

Bmw 325i (e30) — This beautifully engineered compact executive saloon from Bavaria is an excellent car. I bought it in the Summer of 2008 with 165,000 miles on it. The previous owner had installed a solid stainless steel short shifter, replaced the steering with an M3 rack, replaced brake rotors and lines with ATE components, and added Bilstein sport struts. The car drives superbly and quickly with these additions. Although the performance is the most important factor in my mind, what I really love about this car is the "Germanness". BMW designed the car to have classic sedan shape with conservative German lines, but still managed to make the car look powerful and aggressive. Consistent with German logic, the front axle steers the car while the rear propels it forward. To help achieve its 50/50 weight balance, BMW moved the axles forward, placed the battery in the trunk and added a full size spare with a matching steel wheel. In the owner's manual they've included procedures and warnings to adhere to when driving "enthusiastically" or when exceeding 110 mph. Overall, this is an excellent driving machine from Germany.

Pros: Drive-type, Engine, Engineering, Accel, Braking, Handling

Cons: Costs a good bit of money to repair and maintain

1989 Bmw 325i — I have own 3 of these cars thus far and though this one looks like a pile of crap, it is by far the entertaining car i have owned! It constantly gets looks as I drop it to 3rd on the highway and crush other so called race cars!! I love these car a lot. However, if you are not mechanically savy, they can be difficult to fix and since its made by BMW, expect to pay lot to fix them.

Pros: Acceleration, handling, ride comfort

Cons: braking, maintaince

My Car — It's actually just a E30 318i Coupe. I love the car. I hate that the head, engine, and radiator have gone over the last 18 months. It's fun to drive because it's RWD, and as said above, I love it because it's gorgeous. It's done 400,000kms, but the new engine has only done 200K.

Pros: Build Quality

Cons: Parts Prices

It's A Genuine Classical Bmw Ever — It's a perfect killing machine with a 2.5 L engine. It takes u from here to heaven in seconds. It's the best classical BMW has ever make - A Legends. ( BOTSO-TSO) With It's rear wheel drive u can make the donuts of 360 degrees rotation. The Interior is marvelous with a genuine BMW motorsport Leather seats and a Hardtop electrical sunroof.

Pros: Interior & Exterior is marvelous

Cons: Nothing @ All is perfect
