Review

This is a really fun car, but the
repairs and tune ups are very
expensive. Be sure to include those
costs when you're evaluating what car
to buy. Even with my warranty, I've
still spent $2100 on repairs and the
tune up inspection in one year! The
service at the dealership in Austin, TX
is beyond horrible (3 times they have
told me I need repairs when the part
isn't broken). If your BMW breaks down
in Austin, take it to Black Forest
Werkshop instead. My problem now is
that with 91k miles, I'm afraid I'm not
going to afford the repair costs much
longer, but after driving this car, I'm
so spoiled that it's hard to find a car
I'd rather have! :)

Best Features

beautiful design, fun to drive - tight handling

Worst Features

it would be nice if the check engine light didn't come on all the time, and cost $90 to turn off, better service at the dealership
