Excellent Vehicle Fit, Form And Function — I love the car but..,it has a gutless engine, still runs like a top though. Driving the car at 110 mph the other day and the car was still eagerly pulling (like it wanted to go faster) It still amazes me everyday even though the biggest dissapointment is its gutless engine.

Pros: Everything

Cons: An excellent engine but, gutless

Shouldn't Have Given This Baby Up! Nothing Like It Out There. — I'm speechless, this vehicle is the epitome of German engineering, nothing compares.

Pros: Way fast...

Cons: Way fast...and you still have to stop when the blue lights are a flickering!

It Is A Great Small Fun Car — I enjoy driving this car after hauling the kids around in a YukonXL. It is nice to be able to fit into parking spots and zip around cars on the highway.....

It Is A Great Car — to many computers and very expansive to service and repair, just for the fact that is a BMW all the repair shops want to double their fee because they think you are loaded, But i noticed that BMW made it easier to work on the engine than any other cars that i have had like the oil filter is right on the top front of the engine compartment and you can adjust your on head lights without any tools.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is a great auto , good handling

Cons: not really good on gas and to many electroniocs
