    Excelent , But The Parts And Services Costs Are A Bit High Then The Usall Car — actually its 320d( there is no option to pick the diesel) quick excellent handeling ,excellent acceleration, medium gas consumption(the diesel), it's very comfortable specially on long drives , it has an remarkable acceleration on high speed (from 130 to 220 etc..) . Brakes are amazing ! this is absolute the best thing on this car. maintenance costs are high if u buy original parts. extremely fun caz it has the rear drive , u can turn the asc off, so then u can drift if u know how, u should drive way more carefully on rain and snow caz the car is behaving very differently, again because of the rear drive..

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

    Pros: fast,comfy , safe

    Cons: u should know how to handel the rear drive

    It's A Nice Car... — I have the BMW 320 Touring Diesel and it is a good car to transport things, there is enough space to put a lot of things in it and it makes a lot of fun to drive! It is very easy to handle...

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: it's a cool car

    Cons: the color

    330i M-sport Smg — * Performance - 80% of torque is available as little from 1800rpm and that translate to effortless drive around town and great for over taking, The brakes are superb and one of the best in it's class tho because of that expect plenty of brake dust. With it's 50:50 weight distribution, stiffer suspension and wider wheels the car handles superbly (tho needs a beefier ARB) again it's one of the best in it's class till today * Build Quality - German build quality are excellent except for the power window regulator that fails yearly lol * Appearance - Much better looking than the E90 sedans hence one of the main reason why i chose the E46 with it's timeless design * Cost of Ownership - Pretty economical for a 3litre engine as long as you drive it below 3k rpm in all gears you'd be surprise how little it consumes. For a performance sedans maintenance can be a b!tch as BMW uses a lot of rubber bushings and plastic parts in it's car * Fun Factor - this is my daily drive to work and the family main transport ... What can i say it gives me driving satisfaction and pleasure immensely.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance, Driving satisfaction, it's a great looking car, can be economical if you want to

    Cons: Maintenance can be hard on the pocket, stupid power window regulator

    Bmw 325i — Fantastic automobile, the most incredible car I have every owned. Does everything perfectly, performance, handling, comfort, economy, quality, maintenance, you name it. Can you tell I like this car? Wow. Bought it with 109k and the car was immaculate, the cleanest, tightest, best driving car. Was like it was brand new. Obviously the previous and original owner had a lot to do with, but the car was fabulous. Sold it at 141k, with no problems or issues whatsoever.

    It's Unbeatable. Buy Your Own ! — Performance is great, fuel economy is fantastic, nice style, excellent brakes, strong built, comfortable. The sunroof mechanism is very poor and the sliders pop out every time. My next BMW will not have a sunroof for sure. Go get one.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Engine, style, performance.....

    Cons: Moonroof
