    Great Deal For Bmw — THis is a great Car! I am really sorry to be selling it. I would like to give it to someone who will appreciate its worth. Great engine, great interior, and super performance. It really handles great in the snow, as well!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Be Ready To Shell Out Big For Maitenence And Repair Unless You Can Wrench Yourself. — Fun and comfortable to drive. Horrible reliablity.Hose broke on tranmisson bottle,alternator failed all at 40k miles. Eats brakes, poor sensor and engine design. I work in the industry and can repair things myself. Alternator would have costed $1500 as quoted by dealer!Dealer misdiagnosed problem the first time and we only took it in because they said they might warranty it. That was a scam! If you cannot repair on your own it will cost you tons!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: a Yugo is more reliable!

    Avoid It, Save Your Money — I must have got the lemon of the bunch. In 3 years this thing was in the shop at least 25 times. I saw my service rep more than I saw my family. It was a nice ride for about 2 months before the problems started. I would never buy another one

    Pros: If you have a passion for the BMW Service Dept

    Cons: List is way too long!

    Sports Sedan Meets Utility Truck. — strong, excellent build, powerful engine and perfect track control. There is absolutely no shortage of power in any RPM range, it could do with more interior space, overall an excellent car to own with minor flaws. Strongly recommend it. Avoid buying pre 2003 Models.

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

    Pros: Great sporty drive  and build quality.

    Cons: Hard ride quality

    The Sports Car Of Suv's — This is a luxury sport SUV that drives like a sporty car, and with all the gadgets I need - the heated seats and heated steering wheel are the best! And room for a big Bernese Mountain Dog too! But I would never take it "off road".

    Pros: Great handling, lots of room.

    Cons: Crappy fuel economy!

    I Would Very Much Recommend The Car To A Friend — one of the best cars i have owend. i love the power, solid build and the size. you sit high above most cars. its a very big car but handles like a sports car, has leather interior with sat navigation and tv. i bought the car with 25000 on the clock. being a diesel car, its extreemly economical averaging 35 miles to a gallon of fuel

    Pros: big, four wheel drive,comfortable, strong image, economical

    Cons: many of them around, gangsters like them
