    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

    The First Vehicle I Ever Drove. — It's cool to say that the first car I drove was a Beemer. Compared to my little rice burner, though, this car was heavy. I didn't really realize that till I was on a long car trip in it. My arms got tired! I know, that's lame. But true. Whenever it needed repairs, you remembered it was a luxury car, because they were costly fixes. Now my dad leases the new ones, so all the maintainance is included.

    Pros: It's a BMW!

    Cons: Luxury = $$$

    Beautiful Car That Drives Amazing — the car is amazing. It's very quick with the 2.8L engine. The size and handling are awesome. Back seat is TINY though. (Im 6'2" 180 lbs) The rear seat belts are on the wrong sides ??Will run great if you take car of it! Preventative maintenance is KEY

    Pros: amazing drive, beautiful car

    Cons: must be maintained, grey interior looks dirty all the time. tan or black is way more classy. no space in the back seat.

    Smooth Operator — Balancer shafts (pre-valvetronic) made this the smoothest 4-pot I had ever driven. Handling is typically BMW impeccable.

    Pros: Sporty handling for a saloon. Smooth 4-pot.

    Cons: Thermostat in expansion tank tends to get stuck. Lack of power.
