    Fantastic! — I thought my TL was great but this car out handles it like crazy and feels really solid. Unbelievable.

    Pros: AWD, great handling

    Cons: Could be pricy to fix, that's why you buy the extended maintenence :-)

    Another Great 3-series From Bmw — The latest BMW 3-series continues BMW's tradition of setting a standard for "entry" level luxury sport sedans. The exterior design is just what someone would expect from a class leading organization. The interior meets anyone's needs. Their are 2 areas that are a bit of letdown. First, the seats and ride are not as comfortable as expected for the price. Second, the car doesn't hold to the road as well as previous versions, or as well as an Audi A4. As I've driven both a 330xi and a 330i, neither of them inspire the level of confidence while driving that the Audi does.

    Pros: It's everything you'd expect from the smallest luxury BMW.

    Cons: The engineers could have added some additional comfort to the seats, and it wouldn't been great if the car held it's line around corners a little better.

    Solid Fun — Safety, Gadget-Heavy, Torque-Heavy....good words to describe this car. Very Very reliable, and BMW Finally got cup holders right on this sucker....has a neat connection for my iPod, and a little knob that controls everything in my car.

    Pros: Handles great, Few minor issues after 50K miles

    Cons: It's not super fast.

    . — I love everything about this car, but the smallish trunk (not small for its class) makes it hard to road trip with.

    Pros: engine; straight forward and easy to use controls, good stock sound system, leather, good seat travel for me (i'm 6'6"), that fact that its German made.

    Cons: smallish rear cargo area.

    My Moms Car. — Man I wish I owned this thing. So much fun to drive at any speed. Very good economy when equipped with valve-tronic. Excellent stereo and lots of really cool small features. 6 spd. automatic

    Pros: Amazing driving machine.  Good, practical size.

    Cons: Appearance takes a bit to get used to.  A few interior ergonomic issues.

    The Best Sports Sedan — The BMW 3-Series has always been a benchmark for Compact Luxury Sports sedans. The newly redesigned 3-Series sedan (aka E90) is no exception. It's pure driving excitement that one must drive to fully understand. This is truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine." :)

    Pros: - Excellent performance with the Inline 6 255hp engine.

    Cons: - Smallish interior in the back seat; even worse if you're tall and sit in the rear.

    Gorgeous — Lovely car but services and run-flat tyres not cheap, but get what you pay for (or you get what your husband pays for)

    Pros: Drives like you're wearing slippers.

    Cons: Running costs

    Beautiful Car. Excellent Performance. Horrible Electonically. — Beautiful car. Excellent Performance. Horrible Electonically. Extremely expensive for what the car had. To have the car up to my specifications I had to add too many extras that did not work.

    Pros: Beautiful, outstanding color - inside and out. I looked very very good in it.

    Cons: Comfort Access SUCKS. Run Flat system SUCKS. Everything electronic in the car SUCKS. Had problems with the oil.

    Excellent Appliance. — Some electrcal issues. Run flat tires are terrible. Push button start with key fob in the dash is stupid. Transmission (Steptronic) is hokey. Service plan is cool but it isn't really free like BMW claims. They just build the "free maintenance" into the price of the car.

    Pros: Very reliable but no more so than a Honda.

    Cons: Belly-button car. Makes crappy drivers think they are good enough for F1.

    This Is What I've Been Missing All My Life! — BMW couldn't have come up with a better slogan, "The ultimate driving machine." This vehicle was truly made to be driven, especially driven hard. For once, a "tiptronic" automatic transmission that actually changes its shifting characteristics to a more noticeable degree. Precise steering response and tight suspension make this 4 passenger luxury coupe feel more like a 2 seater sports car. If you're looking for a practical car thats reasonable on gas mileage and has a sports car feel, BMW has it!

    Pros: Silky smooth acceleration, solid construction, amazing stereo, no rattles or squeaks.

    Cons: Same belt tensioner problem since 2001, but at least it only makes noise in the winter.
