I've owned alot of cars including a
Porsche 944, but this has to be my
favorite! This little coupe gets a
consistant 30 MPG and is a hoot to
drive. It handles like a go cart in
the twisties and has plenty of power.
Unlike the convertible, you can
actually pack a weekends worth of gear
in the back- or a weeks worth of
groceries if that's what you
need...did I mention that it's FUN TO
Styling- you either love it or you

How can you beat this car? What else
are you going to drive some car you see
on every corner. I've considered many
others including Minis, Boxsters and
M3s. I see them all the time and I'm so
glad of my choice. I have people asking

be had for.
Limited production. Sport seats to die

BMWs in such a small car. Performance
two seater that BMW thought enough to
make a roof rack for. Thule also has
one that works and that's what I have
for it. I've been in heaven since I
bought this rare gem.
A sun shade for the glass roof would
have been nice. Otherwise no complaints
and I've had this car for a long time
and put a lot of miles on it.
