    Undestroyable — due to it's an old car - i really can recommend it. specially with 4 wheel drive it's a great car in winter. and with 11 ltrs/100 km... it think it's a good deal. something with the cylinders was wrong but it was worth it to repair with used parts

    Pros: 260ooo kms and still running well

    Cons: sunroof doesn't work

    I Love This Car, But I Still Want A 540i. — I like 25 MPG. I like 24 valves opening up after 5000 RPMs. I like a 20 year old car that runs/looks/feels better than a new one. I dislike the color/paint. I don't like spending money buying headlights that get cracked by rocks.

    Pros: Top reasons to drive this car.....umm....handles great, performs well, and maintanance costs are minimal.

    Cons: Top 10 to avoid? Rust....thats about it.

    My E34 — - performance is pretty modern for it's age, both mechanically and electronically for a 20 year old car - maintenance is a weekly deal - interior and exterior has aged - ridiculously fun car to drive, has loads of character and memories - almost 240,000 miles

    Pros: fun character, punctual

    Cons: maintenance costs and frequency due to age

    Bmw 525i With A Tuned Engine From A 325e = Fun :) — Performance: I have just added a slightly tuned engine this summer, witch have boosted the horsepower from 129 to around 200 :) I havent done much regarding styling. I added 18" rims, and changed the headlights and taillights. This gave it a more modern look. Since i bought the car almost 2 years ago, it has been a costly affair. But the overall costs is relatively low if you know a thing or two about mechanics :) This is one of the best and most fun cars i have ever owned, and im really looking forward to trying an M5 :P

    Pros: Great fun to drive, nice comfort (even though it has low profile tires and has a sports suspension).

    Cons: It can have a lot of hidden errors that can end up costing more than the car.

    Reliable — It is a 1990 520i. I have driven this car for more than 10 years. Practaly with no mantinance. Starts easy even in the winter. Dosn't have the biggest engine in the world but have an ok top speed. If I had the place to keep it I would. But it is to old to drive every day now...

    Pros: Reliable, low mantinance, Comfitable

    Cons: loves fuel

    Bmw E34 535i — It is all around beautiful. Quality ahead of its time. performance is fantastic. I feel like i am in a muscle car. Parts wont cost you an arm or leg. Handles better than most cars on the road today. This would be the ideal weekend car to pull out early on a Saturday morning for a little nurburring cruise before you have to take the kids to practice. Will also turn heads anywhere you go. :Performance- 208 nhp 5700 / 225 ft bls 4000 :Build quality- Full leather interior wood trim power windows and sun roof, can close sun roof and windows by right turn of the key in either door locks, Dual climate control, power heated seats :Appearance- friendly at first glance.. then after your first drive... wolf in sheep's clothing. Very luxurious style and sporty to boot : You dont buy a BMW if you cant afford the maintenance but part values are fair and not too much will brake if you maintain her well or bought it from a person who babied the car :Fun Factor- Would not sell this car for anything else because it offers the best of both worlds and can take a turn about 60 mph if not to sharp, above 60 you can drift the whole dam thing and she will hold steady and put a grin on your face that will last all day. Drift monsters and drag kings. Will out handle on a circuit to.

    Pros: Best fiver ever

    Cons: havent found any
