1995 BMW 3 Series Review
This was the one of the best driving cars I have owned. Felt safe at any speed or maneuver. Chassis set up was about perfect and steering feel was great. Under powered, but great inline six. Interior was nice and the transmission silk.

Perfect For Student Or Everyday Vehicle For Working Family Member. — I like the car because it is a rare model offered by BMW in this country from 95-99. It is good on gas and handles well. It also has rather cheap general repair bills and offers good interior space for a car of it's size.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great transportsation and looks hot.

Cons: the car is 18 years old bad ac condenser

Stand Out, Drive Hard, Feel Like A Kid Again And Enjoy A True German Car. — Great sports car that handles well, sounds good, drives aggressively and this is all under a reasonable 30mpg fuel economy. This BMW is so reasonably priced and a car that I thoroughly enjoy. Although the paint is notorious for peeling and the interior is not stellar, I still feel that the car is a true tribute to German engineering and class.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, engineering, and style

Cons: interior, paint and **transmission/clutch!**

It's An Amazing Car. I'm Glad I Have It. If You Find One In Good Condition, Buy It. —

This car is amazing. My friends have Japanese cars and my car breaks down less than any of theirs. And that's not bad considering that it has 150,000 miles on it. Granted, parts are more expensive when it does, but it's a BMW. The car isn't a ferrari, but it's quick, with great handling courtesy of the arguably perfect weight distribution of the e36 (considered one of the best bodies for a car ever made). It also has a very tight turning radius which comes in handy more often than you would expect. The car is fairly small, great for tight parking spots (and racing in heavy traffic). The car has a 2.5 liter inline 6, with 189 horsepower and 181 pound feet of torque. The 0-60 for the stick is 7.5, and the automatic (mine) is about 8.5. The braking is great, the handling is great as I mentioned, and the rear wheel drive coupled with the fact that the car is fairly light makes it a decent car to drift. The build quality is good, and as I said it's very reliable (as long as you treat it right). The interior and exterior are beautiful in my opinion (could possibly be first love syndrome since it's my first car so nothing else looks as pretty), but my friends agree as well so I'm sure it doesn't look bad. The car gets combined 20-22 miles per gallon. It gets about 18 in the city and 25 on the freeway (assuming I'm not speeding, if I'm speeding around it gets combined 15-16), which isn't great. Also, the car doesn't take regular gasoline, it takes Plus (89 AKI) so that's an extra 10-15 cents per gallon there always. The only complaints (not really but if there were things I did complain about they would be these) are the not amazing gas mileage and the lack of trunk space (the latter being partially my fault because of my subs). And, this is relevant if you're looking to buy one, the A/C and the heater ROCK, but only once the engine is warmed up. Other than that, the car is really fun to drive, and I love it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, reliable, practical, pretty, fun, comfortable little sports car.

Cons: Gas mileage? Kinda? Who cares it's a BMW there's no reason to not buy it.

Top Car!! — second lowest engine of 3 series E36 but drives like a dream. when you turn to BMW you get addicted to it. It has it's downside since it's an expensive brand but it's rare you need to change spare parts.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RWD

Cons: Get bigger engine, 6 cylinders and up
