A Driver's Car — This car is amazing at everything. Since it's a four door sedan, you might not expect it to handle like a sports car, but it does. In fact, I, an amateur driver, drive it very aggressively on the most difficult race track in the world, the Neurburgring. The brakes along with the handling are adequate as well. I put a lot of miles on my car. I drove it 15 hours straight from Oklahoma City up into Montana on the way back home in Washington. I was very comfortable the whole time. It took 5 hours to drive each 400 miles averaging 80 mph the whole drive that day. I'll add more when I'm inspired to do so later.

Pros: Durable in every way. I drive my car hard and it never lets up.
Handling has saved me from crashing multiple times.
Comes stock with dual exhaust, "headers" and a tunnel ram air intake.
Runs 16.3 seconds in the quarter mile.

Cons: None. It's everything you could want in a car.

A Comfortable Cruiser — I drove my friend's '98 BMW 328i convertible for a day and thought that it was a pleasant cruiser. The car didn't guzzle gas and the suspension was perfect for a Sunday cruise.

Pros: A comfortable ride. Perfect for a Sunday cruise.

Cons: Kind of a feminine car.

Want Another One! — Can't fault it. The only thing i'd change is to get a 6 cylinder engine. Handles well, stops well, sounds nice and a very good driving position (i'm 6'3'' and there's plenty of room)

Pros: Well built, involving drive, Cheap to buy

Cons: I don't own it anymore :(
