    This Car Is Lots Of Fun To Drive. — This is my firs BMW I buy. And I just can't see my self driving anything else. The experice and feeling of this car is unique. And the 4/50k mile warranty is the best. Great car and a great price.

    Pros: Handeling, Performance and Style

    Cons: None

    Great, Economically Fast Diesel. — Yes I know, it's a diesel and it's a BMW. Who cares? I get a free pass to the outside lane, I DO own the road and I DON'T actually have to use my indicators (the Highway Code says so) Joking aside it is a great car. I have the SE model, not sure how it compares to others but it has the 6 speed 'box, full leather, climate, electrics etc etc.

    Pros: Quite economical. Fast for a diesel.

    Cons: P11D haha.  Tyres cost a small fortune (Potenza run flats) It's a diesel.

    The Ultimate Driving Machine...fo Sho — The 325 xi handles wonderfully. Just not enough h/p. Cant wait for more power!! Once you step in it though, it'll feel like you've been driving it for years.

    Pros: Handling, resposivness, awd, taking turns @ 95mph feels like 50...

    Cons: Slightly slow on the uptake.

    Great Car — The only thing that could be changed, if possible is the noise factor from the roof when closed. The winter driving was NOT cold with the material roof.

    Pros: Sport handeling

    Cons: Too expensive to buy

    Wonderful Quick Fun Car. — very nice handling, the engine loves high rpms and has a great straight-six engine sound... 325 model not the fast enough to meet power hungry's thirst... virtually no exhaust note... not necessarily the best car for older people.... as this is a sporting car its maybe be a little rough riding for the older crowd... unless this is what u want in a car... this car even could be considered smooth if you depending on what car u have driven... by todays standards this car maybe a little slow.... based on the standard figure of a 6.5 0-60 as the a good base number... this car is about in the 7 to 9 second range depending... great car overall what it may lack in speed it still can handle... which makes it very fun to drive in the local back roads... haha

    Pros: very nice handling, the engine loves high rpms and has a great straight six sound...

    Cons: 325 model not the fast enough to meet power hungrys thirst... virtually no exhaust note...
