Bimmer — Performance- Nice acceleration for a 1,6l but theres some stuff coming to the engine room XD Got new Greenstuff streetracing pads and KW suspension with Sparco front and rear crossbars. Interior is going to be awesome with lots of leather!!! It´s fun to drive but needs a lot of work...

Pros: It´s just cool...

Cons: It´s expensive to build...

Bmw 328 — The best car I owned. Great quality, feels like a go-cart and make´s me smile every day. 193 bhp feels like 250 bhp Evereybody that´s seen my car in real life said that it´s the most beutiful Beemer they ever seen. A really nice car I swear.

Pros: Drive it

Cons: Refuel it

318 Review — It has been a good and reliable car. The air conditioning is a little weak and the cup holders don''t work very well. It handles well and has been a fun car to drive. It is black with a tan interior. Since it is 11 years old, it is not looking as good anymore.

Pros: Solidly built, good handling

Cons: Weak a/c

1997 318i — This car was a lot of fun to drive, got great gas mileage, and was also nice to just look at! Unfortunately, BMW didn't know how to make a good 4cyl in 1997 and it had it's share of engine issues! All in all I enjoyed this car a lot!

Pros: Looks, Gas Mileage

Cons: Bad Engine, Lack of Power

Classic Looks, Amazing German Technology — Bought the car a little over a year ago, after selling my boring Camry (which I only had for 8 months - some of you may not even know I had it). It's a fun car to drive, especially since it's a 5-speed. Parts for this baby are expensive, but being that I'm mechanically inclined and have my Tio Luis (the mechanic in the family) to thank, I can handle the costs. I've been once told I'm bi-polar when it comes to cars - so don't be surprised if in a few months I'm driving something else... (God, I hope not...) - see what I mean..?

Pros: Smooth ride, good looks, it's a convertible!

Cons: Mediocre fuel economy, expensive to fix

The 328i — My favorite car. I put tons of money into this machine and made it my own. It was awesome. I sold it to a local kid... I put a CAI on it, direct ignition coils, upgraded the chip, updated the wheels, put on an HID headlight kit, the works... I miss it!

Pros: Fast, loud, smooth

Cons: a little too loud...

Would Recommend And Buy Another — I loved this car! It is solid, fun to drive, great handling and comfort. The performance was good for stock but add a couple grand and it'll be great! the quality was great overall and it holds up excellent in a crash. I had a guy total mine by T-boning us. The car did it's job and kept us safe. We were at 0 mph and he was doing 40+. The car looked great with a nice tint job and I still miss driving that car!

Pros: almost everything

Cons: on the 4 door, the back seat doesn't split and fold down

My White Beemer — I got this car two years ago by accident, was exactly what I had to spend and in really great shape, got lucky I guess. It has greta mileage, I LOVE the sunroof always wanted one, it is very comfortable to sit in and drives like a dream, I took it to mexico once and as soon as I crossed the border and was free of speed limits I discovered really what the engine can do, only 4 cylinders but can go pretty fast, the steering is great the stability is awesome, and it looks great, I love it!

Pros: Good mileage, good power and stability, comfort and looks

Cons: If you want to have it nicely taken care of mechanics can be expensive, but not ridiculous as long as you stay away from the agency
