    Best Sports Sedan In The World... — it is fast an anything and handles like its on rails. had the zhp package, closest thing to an m3 with 4 doors back then. it had 18s and sport exhaust. black on black with a sweet alcantara steering wheel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: best all round sports sedan in the world

    Cons: expensive to fix, gas mileage not that great

    Bmw 320d — Run flat tyres what a rip off, 10,000 miles for £150, otherwise spot on. Fuel economy 40+, performance with auto sport box great. Great when i've crash tested it on motorway, I drove away Audi and ford driver's did not, but there air bags worked a treat. Shame the brakes did not.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: performance, comfort, fuel economy.

    Cons: Run flat tyres.

    Love It — I have the performance package 330 which makes it a lot more fun then a regular 330 but basicly lacks a supercharger/turbo to make it perfect for me. The h&r race springs made it a lot more planted on the road and the twisties are a blast in it.

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

    Pros: It's a solid, fun, bimmer

    Cons: Needs more power:)

    05 330ci Zhp — Great reliable FUN to drive car. Great milage, great brakes. Could use more power, 3.0 ZHP is nice but lacks tq of a V8. Bought it for my wife Penny, she loves the car. I can't complain, 132k and no problems except minor stuff.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Low maintenance, great handling, quiet, great milage.

    Cons: nothing

    Bmw 325i 2005 Model — Second hand with 20,000km already in mileage; it still handles fast and solid thanks to its German built engine. Great for a first car to take to school from now and then. Overall car performance; fast, light and easy to maneuver!

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

    Pros: Nothing like having a German car.

    Cons: Its old? (hah, I still love it)

    Most Fun For The Money — the bmw 325 is a great car. it is fun and economical with enough power to really get you moving. it can be used for just about any purpose and can be driven by just about anyone. overall I love this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: stiff suspension makes high-speed turn very fun.

    Cons: not alot of trunk or backseat space.

    Bmw 330d M Sport - The Thinking Man's Choice! — BMW 330d M Sport - solid, comfortable, well specified, quick, fast and frugal. Massive torque means that strong acceleration is available from any speed in any gear. 6 speed automatic gearbox is quick to change, but also means that driving in traffic is relaxing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Smart looking BMW - everybody notices you!

    Cons: Slow sat nav and people reluctant to let you out at junctions - jealousy!

    Great Little Car But Can Get Pricey With Options By jodyrobe
