Sexy Beast — This car has the performance package, including; M aero kit, M transmission (6spd manual short throw), 18" rims, upgraded cam, and some more :). This is my favorite car to date, i've owned 2 previous BMW's, a 2001 330i and a 2002 325i, 2001 Nissan Xterra, and 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T. The pickup on this car is amazing, as well as the top speed ;). I just recently put in a 7" headunit w/Navi, ipod, dvd, xm, bluetooth, and hopefully soon a JL stealth sub in the trunk to add to the H/K speakers, cuz even though the sound is crisp, a little extra bass is all this car needs :)

Pros: Very fast, great handling, great gas mileage, great head turner!

Cons: Tough to resist lead foot

A Introduction To The Ultimate Driving Machine — This car has been wonderful to me for the last 5 years. It has been solid since the first day I drive it off the lot. There has been some minor electrical problems, but thanks to the full service waranty, what would've been some expensive bills were taken care of. The car drives like a dream, even after 80K miles, the engine hums like no other car I have ever owned.

Pros: Performance, handling, steering, acceleration, comfort... the list is long

Cons: Expensive to upkeep after waranty expires.

Great Entry-level Luxury Car. — The AWD system was quite capable, but I was looking for even more control, which is why I switched to a Rover. BMW quality was great though. The handling was superb!

Pros: Everything mostly.

Cons: Leather wear, EVERYONE has one

My Latest Toy. M Tech Everywhere! — So much better to drive than the A3 I had, interior feels a little cheap compared to the Audi. TV and Sat NAV factory fitted is pretty cool but the amp and speakers are pants! None of that matters though when you plant your foot in second, third or fourth.

Pros: Power, Power, Noise, Power

Cons: Thirsty

Ultimate Driving Experience... Very True Statement Indeed — Before this car, I had a '96 Acura 3.2TL, the TL have more power than this car, but when you hit the gas, you are pulled back to your seat. When revving in high RPMs... the car just asks for more gas... does not lose power at high RPMs, suspension is amazing for summer weather, winter on the other had, too much torque, DSC comes on too quick...

Pros: Amazing driving experience

Cons: Some electrical issues with soundsystem

Great Performance But Very Unreliable — The built and finish feels very solid. Performance is amazing! However, this car is haunted with engine and electrical problems. Maintenance is outrageous and super expensive! The dealership service dept. was its second home. I would never own one again.

Pros: Great finishes and performance

Cons: Expensive to maintain

Maybe Not Everything I Want, But Everything I Need. — With one day to buy a car, I bought this. I've been very happy with it, 4 doors cause I always drive.

Pros: Reliable, good looking, fun.

Cons: Doesn't satisfy my sports-car desires, but does satisfy sports-coupe needs.
