    Solid All The Way Around — Its sleek, sporty, sexy and extremely fun to drive. A great mix of luxury and performance. With over 220 stock horsepower this vehicle already has the beginnings to make is a powerhouse. The sports suspension with the sports package makes handling more fun than I ever imagined. It gets good gas mileage (23/30).

    Pros: Power, Luxury, Handling

    Cons: Expensive to repair, expensive to trick out

    Medium-sized, Solid German-made Two-door, With Quality Handling And Pretty Good Performance. — I am a BMW enthusiast. I love my car more than most other cars in the same relative range just because I am biased. I love German cars as a whole. My car is white and beautiful and gives a wonderful ride quality and is a ton of fun to drive. The only car I would trade this in for is possibly a 335XI Coupe, in white.

    Pros: Rear-wheel-drive handles very well.  I love the tight power steering.  I love the steering-wheel controls.  I love the fit and ride comfort. The 5 speed manual is nice, has good low-end torque, and makes the car very peppy considering 215HP.

    Cons: Doesn't have a navigation.  Could use more horsepower and a slightly better suspension system.

    Bmw325xi — It is an overall great, Winter time was an awesome performance. However I don't like the fact that I have to spend 60+ dollars to fill up the tank for every 250 miles...:-( I won't buy another XI but I know the new 3.30 series gets 31 miles a gallon... Amazing, hopefully that would be my next...

    Pros: It is a BMW... Beautiful car

    Cons: Gas Guzzler...

    Best Automobile I've Ever Owned... — This was my dream car growing up and through college. When I was finally able to buy one, I jumped on the chance. It's a great car, but the most impressive part is the engine. The amenities aren't as nice as many competitors cars -- Acura, Lexus, etc. -- but for pure driving this car creams them all.

    Pros: Fast, fast, fast.  

    Cons: Mediocre amenities.

    Top Down? Check Foot Down? Double Check! — This was a compromise between the two cars I owned before her... Top Down fun, but 4 seats... Fun car, but I missed the boxster right away.

    Pros: Looks good and Fast

    Cons: Not as tight as you would expect from BMW... some shimmy and shake when the top was down.

    The Ultimate Driving Machine! — After the S2000 got a little too cramped for my old man, he bought this car from his older brother in south Florida and drove it back up to PA. He got it for six grand below blue book value!!! It has not given us any trouble at all in the two years we've owned it, and we love it. It handles great, it's very comfortable and smooth, and it looks beautiful. I mean it's a Bimmer!

    Pros: It's a BMW convertible, need I say more? The engine and tranny are silky smooth, the A/C blows ice cubes, and when the Bimmer was hit by a Volvo, it held up like a champion prizefighter. The backseat is also very comfortable. Getting back there is the key, but once you manage to get back there, it is very comfortable.

    Cons: Wish it had heated seats and an alarm system, and it takes premium fuel.
