Good-looking & fun, breaks a lot

2000 BMW 3 Series 323iT 4dr Wagon
Overall, I enjoy this car. I like the wagon's look, that it feels solid, & that it isn't too common. My complaints are that it doesn't have much power for accelerating, I'm replacing brakes every 20k miles, all 4 windows have broken, and the lower control arms have been replaced twice (in 57k miles). Oh yeah, the sunroof is toast, too. It makes me miss my Honda, but I like the feel of the BMW so much that I'm not sure I can go back. I've spent $.04-.08/mile maintaining Hondas & Nissans; this BMW is costing me $.16/mile.
Looks, interior wears well, not a common car to see, key-controlled memory seats, fun to drive, good handling, quiet
More horsepower! Longer-lasting brakes, windows, control arms & overall better reliability.
