    Pros: It's A Fun Car To Drive.

    Cons: Repair Bills Are A Little High But It's The Price You Pay When You Drive Quality.

    Pros: still drives like a beemer

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable, smooth drive

    I Would Love To Have Another — Loved this car, had good power, handled like on rails. This was the 323is so it was the two door with ground effect molding, was chipped and rolling on Konig wheels. Looked like an M3. Unfortunately I did it in with a stupid, stupid, stupid, high speed downshift that blew the PCM.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: ultimate driving machine

    Cons: cost of maintenance

    Bmw 318i 1998 — This one is the smallest BMW type. It is very powerful even though the engine only 1.8L. It has a very impressive handling and very handy dashboard. This car also very efficient in gas, and has a luxury interior. This car is fun to drive, because its small size and powerful acceleration.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Imppressive handling, powerful engine, small body

    Cons: many problems with electricity.

    One Of The Best In The World — Performence is good on motorways and the handling is really good. The Build Quality: Did I have say that this is a BMW? Appearance: Really good to see that BMW Change to leather steering. My Plastic is very odd now and has to be changed. Cost of Ownership: Well it is very old and nothing to do at the Moment. Fun Factor: It's a BMW and the have the slogan: "Joy at Drive" (frei aus dem Deutschen: "Freude am Fahren"). Nothing more to say.

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

    Pros: Freude am Fahren

    Cons: Bad Streets aren' good in this car

    Good To Go — affordable, quick, responsive, fast, stable, it would never let you down... treat it nice, and you will harvest. i did a top speed once at 238 km/h but that was only because i had no more road left.. it should do more

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

    Pros: BMW

    Cons: gas consumption

    Man...hail Yah... — This car is frickin amazing. Even though it only puts 170hp, its small size makes it go. I got it used from a friend who took really good care of it. He put suspension mods on it so it handles like a dream. I just needa put a couple grand and ill have 300+ hp. I just found a deal on a CARB exempted turbo kit that ill put on. I'm probably gonna get the worn seats replaced with tan synthetic leather racing seats that go for 350 a piece.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: small, stick, coupe...just the way i like it

    Cons: relatively low horsepower
