1997 BMW 3 Series 318i 2dr Convertible
Though now nearly 15y ears old,it has features that most new cars still don't have.
Handling is very good, takes corners at 30 mph though not recommeneded for safety reasons.
0-60 in under 7 seconds, still good by even today's standards, very good in the late 90s.
Steering is well balanced, not heavy oe too light.
My 04 Infinity feels like a tank in comparison sterring wise.
Car feels very solid, though it moves athletically.
Everything is expensive to repair, but the engine itself is very solid-no oil leaks, shakes, overheating, stalling in the 3 years I have had it (purchased at 100k miles).
Trip computer, handling, acceleration, overall integrity of body and chassis. Longevity (expected)
Electrical system, catalytic converters, stereo, seats (small for big butts).
