Lloovvee It ! — Beauty, Power, Stile, Reliability, all together. Having rear wheel drive makes a big difference compared to the Audy Cabrios, and with a standard shift transmission, you just have a more fulfilling experience......My car has just 34.000 miles on it !!

Pros: Inspiring !

Cons: Nada !

A Great Everyday Car From The Creators Of The Ultimate Driving Machines. — Fun Factor - is this car fun to drive? - Yes it is, though I am a BMW fan. So my argument is not objective... But it's like a basic car but just better, done with care, soul and expertise. A car made for driving, made for the driver, not the people who just want 4 wheels and plastic cupholders for the family of 7. It's made to people who want to enjoy driving, not everything else during driving. Sorry for my english, had to use dictionary a little.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's like a reliable pet <3

Cons: I hate to fear that somebody does a damage to it, e.g. in parking lot with their doors, or just vandalism. The car has no cons.

German Power - 'nuff Said — Performance is great as long as your not looking for economy. Getting a little expensive now with the fuel prices going up. I can vouch for the 0-60 time of 7.2sec and I can vouch for the 147mph top speed BMW claim. Its a 3-series coupe, so what more do ya need to say bout how it looks, it has the M3 alloys and soon enough will have the front and rear bumpers to match. Insurance is good for me, and the joy of driving is great! Gotta love rear wheel drive, specially with the winter we've just had :D

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the joy of driving it everyday

Cons: cost to drive it

Bmw E36 — Great acceleration experience thanks to VANOS, the brakes bite strong, handling is superb with the M-Sport suspension. The design is timeless and maintenance costs are normal if you know what you are doing! It is an ideal car for long road trips, hillclimbing with lots of corners, anything that is fun really.

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

Pros: Performance, design, style.

Cons: With automatic transmission it is a bit heavy...
