Hi Tech 1997 — In 1997 we owned this car and it was fully loaded. It even had navigation which impressed anyone who I took for a ride. Never been a fan of BMW but they do make a decent sports sedan with the right amount of high-end refinement. Of course in 1997 there were better cars that cost less. However this car still holds up and I wouldn't mind driving one again. I just hate the maintenance required and the cost of parts on BMWs.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Hi tech for 1997

Cons: Horrible in the snow with all season tires
