Toms 328i — Awesome car, totally under-rated. 90% of an M3 for 50% of the cost! I love the understated looks, but it is starting to look a bit dated now. Really nice to drive, proper rwd sideways fun! Just wish I'd bought one years ago.

Pros: How it drives

Cons: Its starting to rust a bit now.

My Bmw — i love this car it is my first car and i have had it since june of 2004. I have covered more than 70,000 miles in the car. I am a college student who needs a daily driver that is reliable and this car has never left me stranded under normal driving conditions.

Pros: fast economcal and easy to drive

Cons: it is old so it shows in wear, the cars gearbox linkage is a little vague

1998 BMW 3 Series 328is Coupe RWDReview

Bimmer Value — This car is the most value you can find out of $7,000. People have asked me what I spent on my car, I then make them guess, I've heard $20,000 to $35,000... The Quality of the car is very impressive, but what should you expect from a $40,000 car? The performance is certainly good for a 6-cylinder, but one day a Bimmer V-8 will be in the garage. If you like when people turn their heads as you drive by, this car is a great buy.

Pros: Good Looks, Looks Expensive, Build Quality.

Cons: I want an M3, Repair Cost.

Good Looking, Realible, Motor. — Performance- Excellent for small engine and reasonably heavy car. Build- Cant be faulted in any BMW of this sort of age.

Cons: Driver and rear leg room.

Ultimate Driving Machine — Performance-exeptional. If you have never driven a BMW and you enjoy truly motoring, it is quite a pleasure. Quality? Outstanding, I have been through tons with BMWs and they perform well. My last one had a tree fall on it and was fine. Appearance, sexy as hell. I have the sport wheels and that Alpine white with black leather is classic. Cost of ownership...worth it. Must be precise with maintence, periodic costly repairs. Rare repairs, end result; out weighs the means. FUN FACTOR the ultimate driving machine, need i say more?

Pros: makes me smile to think about it, premium sound enhances the experience

Cons: would like heated seats, steering wheel as well as radio controls on the steering wheel

Bmw > Japanese Cars — Its fast, it's a BMW, and it has the M3 suspension. The car can run with cars that a brand new, such as the new mustang and beat them. RWD with stability control that can be turned off makes for fun around corners. The premium HK sound system has 4 subs and absolutely bumps.

Pros: Its fast, good looking

Cons: repairs cost mad bills

Bmw — The performance is amazing.. in its speed, the braking is abs.. and handles brilliantly. It has never been for repairs, but goes in to bmw for its regular service. The car colour is arctic silver, with 17inch motorsport rims and sunroof. Interior i have dvd player and dvd screen. The seats are a grey leather. The petrol consumption is quite high as it is a 328i .... ( 3 litre motor)... 180kw. The car is adrenaline and exhiliration all in one package! I love BIMMER!

Pros: High performance, braking amazing (abs), airbags, handling brilliant.. build quality solid! Appearance... its bmw...!!

Cons: high petrol cost

Bmw 316i1998 — One thing you've got to give BMW is its quality and finish. The car probably does 0 to 100 in like never but the ride itself will never let you down. The approximate mileage of 0.01 km a liter might bugger you down but the sheer exhilaration (not acceleration ! ) of driving a car specially made for the driver's pleasure is inexpressible thrill. If you've got about enough money to buy a mid segment car that you wont use much anyway then i'd suggest this one. Take care ciao.

Pros: Great drive

Cons: Poor performance
