Awesome! — First car i bought! Nice but has some road noise. I have an extended warranty so i has really saved me some time and money on repairs. This car is fun to drive and you can't beat it for the price!

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 :(

Solid Base For Further Modification — A friend of mine allowed me to drive around Stuttgart in his car, until i made the car power oversteering at the gateway to the Autobahn... It was fun though, his face turned white after the little drift exercise, lol

Pros: Tourqe full engine, ridigt chassis, nice aftermarket suspension, lots of after market parts available, lots of spare parts available, fair price

Cons: Aluminium engine block, loose too much power at the top end

Excellent Condition Older Beamer — 1999 BMW 323i E46. 5 speed. Fun to drive. Great condition, clean, quick, fast, cheap.

Pros: Great condition, cheap, great gas milage, quick for a non sports car, comfortable, fun to drive, looks incredible, sick stereo system

Cons: Could be faster, could have just a split second better clutch, but much more to come

Beautiful Car With Amazing Handling And Very Powerful. — Beautiful car, the most amazing car I have owned thus far. As a driver the car is utterly a thrill to drive, and it accelerates to very high speeds quickly and effortlessly. the car feels just as secure at 120mph as it does at 60mph. German engineering truly is the finest. the leather heated seats make for a comfortable drive, always, and the automatic traction control and 4-wheel disc anti-lock brakes keep me safe. The car is solid, and the suspension is absolutely amazing. Wonderful car, packed with power. Next on my list is an E46 M3, preferably a 2005.

Pros: Looks, handling, luxury, acceleration, top speed, safety, rear-wheel drive, leather seats, climate control, sunroof, automatic windows, power and heated seats, heated mirrors, heated keyholes, alarm system and anti-theft, sex appeal.

Cons: No place for in-dash navigation, bad in rain or snow (rear-wheel drive), tight fit for rear passengers.

Somewhat similar to Audi A3 E-tron, but that model is no longer available in US. Wish the 330e could go farther on just electricity. Youll never actually save money with these PHEVs, but Mother Nature... Read More
