    Keeping Mine As Long As I Can — Love my car! You'd have to have to drive one -- you'd be sold. Drives great. Handles wonderful. Quality has been great so far. Love the style. Cost was too high, gas mileage not as good as I had expected. Overall, fun to drive

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: way it handles

    Cons: price too high

    You Should Buy One. — I don't like the fact that the mirror adjust switch doesn't have a middle 'off' setting. It's either left or right mirror. Other than that it's great. It's fast, looks good and doesn't break. Even the way I drive it.

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

    Pros: It's awesome.

    Cons: No complaints.

    Yeeee Ha! — A drivers car, great handling, perfectly well rounded. Although the "German engineering" was not as hoped for in a few minor aspects. A 330 would have been a better choice though as a 325 is slightly underpowered. Maybe the next one...

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

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Expensive to maintain in top form

    E46 — Well, this is my 2002 e46, and it is pushing around 200 hp as of right now. It is in perfect condition, with no rust and no paint fade. If you want handling, second to none, and plenty of power, this is the perfect car for you. It will soon be a ZHP powered machine, which will be almost a sedan M3. Thanks for looking at my car.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: none

    My Bmw 325i Compact — I have done some modification to my cars performance. It has had an engine remap, stainless cat back performance exhaust and a K&N air filter. The original output was 192bhp, was dynoed recently at 220.6bhp at 5875rpm since then. Since these modifications my car goes quicker and sounds fantastic, throaty and musical at full bore acceleration but still fairly quiet at cruising speeds. The best part about the car has to be the way it handles around bends, thanks to rear wheel drive and is very grippy, only breaking into oversteer around on wet roads, should I be too heavy footed but it is easily controllable for drifting, if I am concentrating!! Build quality is very good too. So far I haven't had any problems with it so far (touch wood!) and is proving to be solid and reliable. The particular model I have is actually a compact model (hatchback) and the only thing I don't like so much is that it is not an M-sport model and from some angles the styling looks a bit awkward, but I have plans to fit some 19inch AC schnitzer alloys and front & rear bumpers soon. My car has full grey leather sports seats and they are comfortable for long journeys on the motorway. Fuel economy is pretty decent for a tuned 2.5ltr 6 cylinder engine. 27-33mpg is fairly common on typical journeys according to the trip computer. Though some parts can be expensive to buy, as is the case with a lot of beemers should things go wrong, though costs can be kept down should the car be serviced by BMW specialists.

    Pros: big engine in small car = fantastic performance/handling/engine & exhaust note/gearchange & refinement on motorway

    Cons: ride can a a bit firm on bumpy roads, brake feel could be better & rear space is a bit cramped

    My 330 Experience — Easy to work on, low cost of ownership, drives great, handles like a tight car, and does not drink too much gas. Very reliable, and is built extremely well. Loves to cruise at any speed all day! Best car yet.

    Pros: Great driving, easy to work on, cheap maintenance, fun performance.

    Cons: Dealer like to charge a lot, that's why its easy to learn how to do yourself.

    Best Car — I just really love this car! It is awesome! Not the fastest car I have ever driven, but by far the best handling and best for long journeys with great legroom and adjustable thigh support! It is loaded with the sport, premium, and cold weather packages, also xenon's.

    Pros: Handling, Looks, and Driver Comfort

    Cons: No Cup holders, Adequate Power, and No Automatic Headlights

    Not Looking Back — I just bought this car and I fear I may never look back. My days with toyotas, hondas, chevys, fords, and mazdas are at an end. I want reliability, performance, undying style, and an overall breathtaking...and i stress breathtaking, in my vehicle. It is a 5 speed BMW today!

    Pros: Clean, quick, agile, sexy, and responsive.  A thrill to drive.

    Cons: You might forget to switch your lights off after parking it.  They're in an odd place.
