You Too Can Be A "yuppy" —

My 4 door 1992 BMW 325i (E36 body style) was a very good car, built great and had enough power to handle its own. Interior was comfortable and designed with the driver in mind. My biggest erk was that my specific 1992 325 was a early model (built before 6/92) and they had some different parts than the 325's that were built after 6/92. Also the gray trim along the bottom of the car made the car look higher....easily fixed with paint matching rest of car. There are the usual problems with the car that can be looked up and most likely fixed on your own. The E36 BMW's are one of the last BMWs that you can do DIY work. One of the best features of the E36 BMWs is that a lot of the parts are interchangable with little to no work with other E36 models like the M3. There are still plenty of vendors that carry factory and aftermarket parts for it. The E36 cars can be had for almost pennies on the dollar now, there are still some fine examples out there. Just source an online BMW forum for unlimited information on any question you might have.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great design that still looks good today

Cons: First model year, early 92 cars had issues/different parts than later 92 cars

Bmw 325ic E30 —

My 1992 325ic 5sp...i bought this car after i sold my 7series, after i sold my old silver E30 couple i missed it so much lol, i had to buy another one. overall this car handels and looks amazing, i bought it stock with 94,000miles sold it at 99,000miles.i know i sell and buy cars like some of you change Girlfriends hahah. but this is my passion i love those bmws. i added smoked corners, is front lip, and a bunch of little stuff. the major things i did on the car were: Timing belt, water pump, valave adjusment, tranny seals and a GUIBO all of this was done at Eurasia...set me around 5000$ or somthing of work, yah it's not cheap but whateve lol. after all of that i lost interest in this car, it was a convertilbe which is not the best to have when you live in Edmonton, that means i will get to enjoy it for only 3 to 4 months. i dumped so much into this car and didn't make any money when i sold it :(. but right now shes in good hands, sold it to a really good guy. also thanks Aaron for making my paint shinnnnnnny.

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

It Would Be Nice When It Gives No Problems — A very sport car, but i used to have too much problems in mechanic,it's very powerful car nd it has good handling,it very nice to drive nd hear the engine sound.It has a a good acceleration. It's not an expensive car and everyone can afford it, the interior is very nice according to 1992, it has ABS and the braking was not bad, about 325 we can say that bmw has not success to make 325 an engine that's good in fuel consumption, because it uses to consume a lot of fuel.

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

Pros: Sport, powerful

Cons: fuel consumption

If You Need A Sedan But Don't Want A Nerdy Car, Buy A Bimmer They Are A Blast To Drive. — It would have been an awsome car if the previous owner taken care of it. It huged the road like no other sedan I've driven, acceleration was very nice. it got good mpg. The reason I got rid of it was cost of maintenance and parts. I liked it so much I bought a MINI, which is made by BMW so it has the same kind of performance but on a smaller scale.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It really is the Ultimate Driving machine

Cons: replacement parts are a little expensive if you don't have any money
