Way to many expensive repairs. Turbo needs to be replaced for at least $9K.

Very fun cars to drive but they are a money pit. If you have $2000-$3000 a year for maintenance than this is an excellent vehicle to have. If not stay away it will make you broke fast.

N/a — The 2008 BMW put a little more into it to So this model year you get more for your money thanks to good old capitalist competition. Beautiful driving machine. It is a BMW so it is higher maintenance car. Even though the car can run well pass 300k BMW tries to push you to another vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Head turner. Luxury and sport is combined in this model.

Cons: City driving gas mileage is not bad and highway mileage is good on the wallet.
