Awesome Daily Driver — I am the second owner of the car and i have put over 80k miles on the car in 8 years. I couldnt ask for a better daily driver. It is nearly time for me to move on but my kids will use it to learn so i can pass on the skill of driving a manual gear box.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The handling is great.  Very reliable car.  Power is peppy. Best gear box i have ever driven

Cons: Maintenance can be expensive

1999 Bmw 3-series — A very nice car to own for someone to only be in high school. It is awesome to drive for how old it is it seems to handle if it is brand new. It's nice to know you have the fastest car out in the parking lot sometimes when compared to fellow peers.

Pros: The power, and the fact that it is a BMW.

Cons: A little small on the inside but its okay.

I Can Only Recommend If You Get A Warranty With This Vehicle. — Performance: acceleration was able to beat mustangs off the line - braking was good - handling is tremendous on curvy back roads, that's where this handling was made for Build Quality: very solid build, everything is very high quality Appearance: beautiful, elegant, sporty, stylish, powerful all at once Cost of Ownership: gas mileage was around low 20s but I drove it pretty hard - maintenance... here's the doozy... after one month of ownership the manifold cracked and leaked all the antifreeze on my way home from work. Needless to say the engine was totaled. My options were $6k to repair, or cut my losses and move on. I chose the latter.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome Car... when running.

Cons: The engine blowing up.

Bmw — Great car. Best ive ever owned! I love my BMW. it performs quite well for its age. I clocked 0-60 at 6.8 seconds. It is a blast to drive. Its quick and gets great MPG's. The only downfall of the car is that its a pain to work on and replacement/aftermarket parts are pretty expensive. All in all though its a great car. Ill never own another car that is not a BMW.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It looks GREAT! Its a real eyeturner

Cons: Replacement parts and aftermarket parts are pretty expensive

Makes You Love All Things Bmw — we really enjoy this car. it looks amazing for being 13 years old and still catches people's eyes. it's actually very tough to sell. we waited for 2 years to sell because it's been such a dream car and we only wish our kids were a bit older so we could pass along to them.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great engine, drives well in icy conditions which is amazing for  RWD vehicle

Cons: can't fit in car seats with the new buckle system

328i Se — Excellent handling, good power from smooth straight six, fully loaded with Factory SATNAV, TV Harman Kardon audio, Leather Electric Seats, Alpina Suspension allround, Alpina 18" Wheels with wide rears, Remus sports exhaust. Goes and sounds gret especially for a car this old.

Pros: Alpina Suspension and Wheels, make handling awesome

Cons: Fuel consumption

Buy One — It's only a 1.9L so power is up there for a first car but not the greatest in the world. its cost me little to none as far as maintenance goes bits of rust appeared just after i bought it. there is leg room in the back though given im tall, not enough for an adult to fit comfortably. BMW is built to handle so this is one of the car's key features and it does handle superbly especially in the twisties.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything with the exception of Fuel Economy.

Cons: Fuel economy - about 400 miles a tank of 62L.

A Quick Car With Almost 200 Hp, But Still Economically-sain — My car 1999 e36 323is: Cold air intake- with K&N cone air filter Audio - 12" woofer/amp and alpine head unit 20% window tint It has a great mix of performance and economy. Not fast enough to actually race anyone, but a great car to drive around town or on roadtrips.

Pros: It has the classic BMW 2.5l i6 engine

Cons: Imported parts can be more expensive at times
