Great Car — Nice acceleration when its in tiptronic, stops on a dime, and its a BMW, of course The only problem thus far was the rear driver window which would move slow. Personally I like the appearance of it, its sleek especially when the tops down. Just like the Expedition, its an expensive car but gets way better gas milage. And its probablly the most fun car to own, unless you have the money for a ferarri or something along those lines.

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

Pros: Fast

Cons: No backseat?

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:)

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)
