Could Only Get Better If It Flew — Perfecty built, great reliability and decent performance. Of course it can get 30 mpg if you baby it. It is not the popular M3 model but the parts are much cheaper not to mention the insurance and you still get the same quality of a car. The only knocks on the star rating is because it is not the M3 but if your desires lie in this car then it would be 5 across the board.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is the perfect car.

Cons: More expensive to maintain than a american car, but what do you expect.

This Car Has Not Let Me Down One Bit And I Have Been Abusive At Times. — Used to own a 1995 325IS and now I won this one and I am very pleased. The interior seems alot more roomy. Performance is very good whether you need to accelerate to overtake a person on the highway or your putting it through corners this car is well rounded is a notch above the competition. This car is very fun to drive. Whether your accelerating in a straight line or putting it through corners you will not be disappointed by this car. When BMW claims to be the ultimate driving machine they are right. I will probably only buy BMW from now on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, cornering and stopping power when you need it.

Cons: No reasons that I can think of to avoid this car.

- — Good acceleration, braking, and handling. Interior is leather, with the sport seat package-heated leather front seats. Only downers-lack of cup holders, 2 in a 5 seater car. And lack of power outlets. Sunroof, loads of trunk space. 3 car seat places. Not that it would be practical for 3, but with 1 or 2..would be fine.

Pros: Standard, quick response.

If You Can Get A Well-looked After One - Buy It!! — 5 stars for all categories sums it up. Ive had C-class, A4, Mondeo, Volvo, Golf GTi and more. But none, not one gives the feel of solidness and control more than this car did. The sound and performance of that straight 6, the solid thunk when the doors closed, the 100% trouble-free motoring. The 100000km motorplan offered with the car is back-up by efficient, professional and friendly staff. The car would have been perfect if it had a more rear space for passengers, a bigger boot or even just a folding down rear seat. But those are minor issues. Everytime I get into a new BM with its run-flats and odd-looking interior I miss my old 325 again. I should NEVER have sold this one and I seriously miss it!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The best 2.5 straight six - by far

Cons: None

Perfect Bmw — Good acceleration, handling and braking, a little slippery on the wet roads, needed to fix an exhaus support, and need to tight up the handbrake. It's really cool driving it expecially in the rain. Diesel version average gas mileage is 7l/100km with sprinty driving The parts for the car costs a lot, even the most stupid thing

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

Pros: BMW, the name speaks for itself

Cons: Dangerous in rain and snow, cost a lot repiaring

One Fun Car, Especially When It Is Warm Out — I have always owned Honda or Toyota. They are good, reliable vehicles, but not exciting to drive. When I drive my BMW I almost always have a smile on my face. The handing, steering response is so amazing. This what the Japanese aspire to, but never really qiute get. The horsepower is good(less than my son's TL), but the torque from the straight 6cyl is one of the reasons it is so much fun to drive. It is so soild feeling, even when going 105mph(going to Vegas). The styling is the best, one of the most attractive, for a vehicle that is not a supercar. I have not needed any major repairs, just replaced drive belts, in 62k. The only downside is the price of replacing the tires($880), but all in all a great car.

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

Pros: the comfort of the seats & the steering response is incredible

Cons: the cost of tires

Bmw 3 Series - As Good As The Magazines Say! — Reliable and solid. Less frequent maintainance-oil changes every 15,000 miles Nice growly sounding engine. Loaded with all the options. Rear-wheel-drive - good snow tires a must! Roomy interior and trunk for a convertible. Soft top has glass rear window with defrost- rare!

Pros: Tight BMW handling.

Cons: Gas mileage not so great- but the car is worth the extra cost.

Bmw 320 Ci Sport — Must be something about "German" cars afterall... bought this bad boy only 6 weeks ago, and despite my previous hatred for all things BMW, Ifell in love with the Beast! Excellent drive, great runner (well, on the motorway!), good bunch of extras on it, and was a bargain!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It rocks!

Cons: Nothing atm!

Loved This Model, It Still Looked Like Bmw. — I want it back NOW! Seats were a little to firm complaint but not as bad as Mercedes. Acceleration was quite astounding for this diesel 320. It left the petrol 316 and 318 standing on the start. Both petrols pegged out badly on the hill out of Inverness the test drives. Build faultless until I wanted a bike carrier attached...nothing to attach it to at the rear due to seamless build!...got a roof mounted instead. Running costs fabulous. Long Scotland to England drives it really did the job in comfort and very economical even with the odd acceleration test by me! Steering wheel controls for Cruise, stereo etc, all easy to operate. One only ever glitch was when the cruise wouldn't disengage at 3am in the pouring rain on the A9...good job I know the road!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Classy, fun and felt safe.

Cons: Only reason to avoid is it'll break your heart to sell it!
