    Best Large Saloon Car — I bought this car last year after selling my Ford Focus RS to my son - it was time to hang up my boy racing keys! Although not as much fun as the RS, this is far more comfortable and more fitting of a man my age. Expensive to run in current climate but woth every penny.

    Pros: Comfortable. Large. Heated seats.

    Cons: Expensive to run.

    Built For The Driver. A Driving Machine!!! — It was my parent's car until they bored with it after 3 years. It was an awesome car to drive and actually had fun driving it. It had enough HP to do whatever I wanted to do within reasonably safe boundaries. It's a very good car when it was staying outside of the shop!!!!

    Pros: A dream machine for the driver.

    Cons: It liked to stay in the shop at least couple of days a month... :(

    This Was My Dream Car... — I loved owning a BMW. It was the car I chose in the divorce. This car was loaded! Premium package, sports premium package. Unfortunately I totaled her last December. She died...but saved me:)

    Pros: Great German Engineering, beautiful look, great suspension and handling

    Cons: Doesn't work well if you own a German Shepherd, expensive to own (must use premium gasoline and nearly every trip to the dealership cost me $500).  Also, after awhile things began to wear out and break.  I was the second owner, so this process emptied my pocketbook on more than one occasion:(

    Wild Baby! ;) — I always prefered my Merc over BMW. But BMW has its own beauty. She is rough and wild. U can handle her anyway your mood tells you too. Runs like a horse. Pick up amazing. Acceleration lasts for long so u can maintain your speed without braking much. I love the looks of the latest models. Again m in love with their eyes...hhehehe... mean the headlights. The design is so dynamic. Loved the latest X5 and 3 series M3 wud be gr8. They revamped the whole internal gadgets which is amazing. She is mean. Instead of she driving u, U drive her!

    Pros: Perfect sporty car!

    Cons: Nothing that I know of.

    The Best 4 Door Sports Car Ever Made. — I use to think that BMWs were overrated until I actually drove one. BMW is truly a driver’s car. Drive one if you want to understand the term “fits like a glove”. I have been very impressed with this car, but it has had some issues. The cup holders are the worst. Not many cars can go 0 to 60 in under 6 seconds and still fits two large car seats in its back seat. So it is a very fast sports car while also being very safe family car at the same time. If its V8 engine did not burn so much gas, I would drive it more often.

    Pros: It has a fast V8 engine

    Cons: It has a thirsty V8 engine
    BMW can design a great engine but the cup holders design is one of the worst ever implemented.
    BMW parts and labor are very expensive

    I'm A Lucky 20 Year Old — I purchased this car when I was a Junior in high school. In the 5 years that I have owned this car I have roughly put 50k on the odometer for a total of 71816 miles. For every mile I have driven this car it has been reliable, comfortable, and has gotten me through tricky situations on several occasions with me and the car unscathed. I was rear ended about 2 years ago by a VW Jetta and to my surprise my car was relatively undamaged. Besides having the bumper replaced there was no other major damage. I recently had the transmission flushed and despite the reliability issues of the automatic transmissions that were in early model E39's mine has been perfectly fine. My one complaint about this car would have to be the factory stereo. I am a big fan of loud music and I was disappointed with the sound as a lot of owners are with mid 90's and early model E39's. This didn't really matter too much because since I planned on doing a lot of neat things with this car from the beginning I simply put in an expensive after market system. The one thing that has been great about this car is the maintenance has been cheaper than I expected. Once my factory warranty expired at 50k miles I opted to find an independent garage to work on my car and the biggest thing I had to do was replace the stock thermostat housing with an aluminum after market housing as the factory part tends to fail after a certain amount of time. Other than that minor problem this E39 has stood up to plenty of hard driving and at 72K miles it sure has a lot more in it.

    Pros: Fairly quick, comfortable, reliable, looks great, sounds great, a simple clean interior

    Cons: Limited back seat space for tall people, 5 speed transmission, came with a mediocre stereo
