    E30 Hottness — I love the fact that people try to buy it off me all the time just cause its an old bimmer. And it sounds and drives great, a really fun car, but it takes a little while to understand why.

    Quick And Comfortable 4 Doors Rocket — Comfortable and power 4 doors sedan My uncle used to use this car to tow a 14" boat that go through twisty mountain roads. We do have some scary moments when there's cross winds but this car performs very well in general. My uncle got a lot of speeding ticket with this car but it saved his life once with a high speed maneuver.

    Pros: Quick acceleration, comfortable ride, enough power for everyday use, great handling

    Cons: Heavy throttle

    My First Car — As I said my first car, overall a ok ride. This car was great the first year but after that I had too many expensive repairs that were all minor. The wait times for some parts to come in were crazy. A old friend of mine was working for a big dealer and if it wasn't for him I would of had to sell before I went to collage, He could do wonders for this car. But sadly she meet her fate. Parted her out.

    Pros: it started everyday

    Cons: the cost for parts and then the wait for parts

    Awesome Car — Overall a great car, hard to find used in good condition, but the ones that are will be fairly expensive. Parts for the 87-91 E30's aren't too hard to find and quite a few options available for engine/suspension upgrades.

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

    Pros: Well maintained, strong engine, oem/aftermarket parts still available

    Cons: Fairly expensive to maintain.

    Great Drivers Car, Looks Unassuming — I'd like to say I miss my 1970's 2002, but I don't. The E30 is so much more. The E30 is aging well and gets alot of looks, according to my wife. Power is still contemporary and handling is excellent, improved by simple traditional modifications.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Old, rarely seen one at this point.

    Cons: Cylinder head rebuild is expensive

    What Can I Say I Like It More Than New Cars! — German engineering's solution to Styling without sacrificing confort. The engines are near bullet proof, one of the best built of European cars! They are very sensitive to maintence unlike Imports. If neglect it can be your worse nightmare, $$$$. If taken care it will give you Fahrvergn├╝gen!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: German Engineering

    Cons: Moar Power!
