Pros: heated seats and mirrors

Cons: repairs are pricey if u dont shop and kno how to do it urself

Great Car,fun To Drive But Of Course You Gotta Pay To Play —

performance-great,smooth but a bit underpowered but will definitly get the job done braking-brakes are great but havent gotten new pads and rotors so i can only imagine handling-this where the car really shines, considering my car is the sport model i have upgraded suspension and a great feeling M5 steering wheel build quality- its a german nuff said apperance-exterior- its looks great,its a timeless design that i believe will never grow old i absolutly love the color of mine also,its callled Anthracite which is a mix betwen green and steel grey, in terms of interior its great looking also, i have ebony leather with wood grain, great supporting sport seats which driver and passenger are full power also,power everything,sun roof,dual climate a/c, 6 disk changer, all of these things on a 99 cost of ownership- roughly $55 to fill up from empty, and i can do about 440 miles on a 20 gallon tank. so not terrible but nothing too amazing.. Maintenance- this where the car in all honesty blows, this car is gonna nickel and dime me to to death. a plastic cooling system which includes the radiator,thermostat housing and the impellor on the water pump..really BMW? fun factor- another spot where this vehicle shines, its looks great enough to be able to pull up to a nice restaurants valet with confidence or to go throw around some nice twisties in the canyon

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun factor,timeless design, still looks great after so many years

Cons: maintenance

Best Car We've Ever Owned But Most Expensive One As Well! — Greatest car we have ever owned. SO much power. That V8 would haul ass like nobody's business. The fact that it was a station wagon made it practical but the monster V8 made it fun as hell. Beautiful (to a station wagon lover).

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: POWER!! Takes all your gear and the smoothest ride ever.

Cons: Repairs are MURDER! Expect $2-3000 a year if you get one like ours.

If You Have 10 Grand For A Vehicle, Get The 4.0l V8. Almost 300hp. Easy To Find Too. — Awesome drivability, rediculously comfortable (winter time: heated seats and heated steering wheel) I ripped out the TCS box (It was already damaged) and aced the proper amount of wheelspin for a good launch, came out with a 1/4 mile et of roughly 13.5 seconds. had supersoft tires, and a stiff suspension. considering the car weighed over 3500 lbs with driver and gear, it was good.

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

Pros: Its a BMW. 'Nuff said.

Cons: Expensive Up-keep

I Would Buy A Brand New One If I Had The Money. I Love It — The beamer is a awesome vechicle,the fine lines in the body,to the perfectly engineening of the power windows, sunroof ,truck lid,seats ect. The car handles like a dream. Interior well it is just a nice as the outside. Trim, dashboard placement of all little gagets, the bucketseats the pedals, storage comparments in the door. Its really nice car. Now to the bad things of the car.Cupholders suck they break easy. Take off in the car isn't the fastest but what do you expect when theres only inline 6 in it and the car really does go 124mph safelly. Some cars will do that also but not safelly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: looks great  drives great ,the air that comes in the car is filter,sunroof opens and close with one touch,allwindows do the same ,it makes you feal like your in a race carwhen driving,the car handles the best around 80-100mph no joke,headlamp apperence,heat seats ac its justs a sweet car

Cons: accleration isn't through you back in the seat on take off.cupholders door handles

Smooth Riding — It is a very smooth ride. It rides just as nice at 120mph as it does at 60mph. Performance is also nice, handling is excellant. Nice extra's making the car comfortable as well. This car is solid and most bmw dealerships will do the work on it for you.

Pros: prestige

Cons: restricter plate
