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

Pros: looks

Cons: heavy on fuel

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

The Slowest Bmw Car There Is.. — The acceleration is terrible no fun at all. The build quality of this car is no good. I have had to repair if numerous times. I have nearly repaired it for the same amount that I bought it for. One of the positive things is that the gas mileage is quite low. Only reason that this car could be fun to drive is that if the engine would be replaced with the M3:s..

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: Performance

Handles Great — Sporty coupe. Handles great but has a tendency to understeer when pushed past its limits. Acceleration isn't so great but still pretty fast.

Pros: handling

Cons: acceleration

Bmw 328ic — I still have the car after 10 yrs (only has 77000 miles on it) and except for the spot my nephew dented it looks beautiful! The AC rattles a little and I have had the roof replaced a couple of times (due to people cutting it) but it's been a great car. BMW has always been helpful with everything and the service/maintenance plan that came with the car was excellent. It is still fum to put the top down and drive the PCH in the summer time!

Pros: 6 cyl engine for the 1st time in the 3 series.

Cons: Some computer problems at times but the factory has always taken care of it.

It's My Baby — i've had it for 8 years and its 10 years old, and no major maintenance problems. You treat it well, it treats you well. Just rolled over 150,000 started to get a little sluggish, I took it to the shop expecting low compression and a generally worn out engine. Compression still good, just cleaned the fuel injectors and changed the oil and all its pep came back. When the day comes to part ways it will definitely be replaced by another BMW.

Pros: Ultimate Driving Machine is not just a marketing slogan.

Cons: tight squeeze to back seat
