    An Excellent Daily Driver And Weekend Warrior — Not as nice as my 525i wagon but an excellent daily driver. All wheel drive is a must in Vermont and this car does the trick. The ground clearance could be a bit higher but I'd rather have the handling. The 5 speeed is fun and you can hustle the car quite a bit. Not the same without the sport package but still a great car. Gas mileage between 22- 28. All in all, I'd definitely recommend this car to any small family.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cargo space.

    Cons: Not much punch and a bit too much body roll without the sport package.

    Anyone Can Afford And Should Buy One — Excellent car so far. Bought it in 2008 with 46000 miles on it. Have had to do some repairs to it, but mostly the usual things for maintenance. Car has amazing performance for an inline six cylinder engine. This car drives smooth all the time and is an amazing vehicle to drive. Right now it is used as a weekend driver/vacation car. It has been driven to Texas 2 times at over 3000 miles each time round trip without any problems. Very fun car to drive.

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

    Pros: Smooth performance and German engineering

    Cons: Can't think of any

    I Love It...husband Not As Much Because He Is The One Working On It..lol — My car has the sports package and has plenty of power, good breaks and goes up hills through the snow like a tank. Love the 5 speed. It is in need of new front axils which cost $700 for parts, but luckily my husband can install them! It looks great and people always assume it is much newer than an '01 with 85,000 miles. Because of the all wheel drive, gas milage is only 22 mpg...but it is worth it...just a fun car to own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great styling, plenty of power

    Cons: 1 major repair

    A Great Car Business Or Pleasure. A Better Buy Mid-sized Family Saloon. — Great car costa lot to maintain especially as it gets older. Great looks, interior never gets old. Lots of fun and has power too even from the smaller engines. To keep it in date you must spend money on updating the interiorand exterior on a regular basis.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Timeless looks

    Cons: High maintainance Costs

    Pros: well sexy

    Cons: expensive parts and repair

    Get One, Its More Than Worth The Cost — IT IS PRETTY MUCH PERFECT, everything lasts forever on the car. IF YOU TAKE CARE OF IT. the cost of maintenance is high. and unfortunately i got this car used from my mother who is cheap. she didnt maintain it very well and im paying the price. it will be back to perfect soon. but the cost is high. IT IS A LOAD OF FUN and you always look good in a BMW.

    Pros: fun and good looking

    Cons: cost of maintenance
