Review

When I found this car, I had been
looking for two months. I paid the
guy 4000 cash and he was asking 5000.
To date I have to put about a 1000
into it, and probly will need to put
another 500 soon. I have had a few
problem with the car, one of which is
that it has burned up 2 cat.
converters, which gets expensive. If
I was not able to do the repairs
myself, I would not still have this
car. I think it is a great car for
the price and is so much fun to
drive. I plan to buy BMW's for the
for seealbe furtrue. These are great
cars.


Best Features

The power of the straight six and how tight it is in the turns.


Worst Features

The seat are really firm and I wish I had a arm rest. Yet they are sold in the aftermarket.

Review

I have had this car for over 4 yrs now,
originally purchased as a second
vehicle for local driving, mix highway
and city. My experience has been
overall very positive - the car can be
a lot of fun to drive, despite the
higher mileage it performs well, sticks
to the road and handles like a sports
car. Since 92 was the first year of
the new BMW body design, the car
actually looks like a much later model.
With routine maintenance I had no major
repairs and the car has been very
reliable. All this for just over $10k
as initial investment.


Best Features

Manual transmission, great suspension.


Worst Features

More cup holders.

Review

Was, remains the first quintessential
sports sedan. The unassailable
benchmark. Superb in every performance
and handling respect, except high
speed sweepers. Lithe, tossable, and
possible to drift & steer with a
throttle, though its glue-like grip
makes it necessary to speed to break
away. Its flaws: a cheap looking
interior much improved in later model
years, and many flawed materials.
Problems I have had in the first five
years included a broken radiator tube;
a leaky gas tank; a broken rear
spring; a broken window lift; two
leaky oil pan gaskets; inability to
start due to plug fouling ; and,
twice, loud exhaust due to total loss
of muffler baffles.


Best Features

Handling, weather band radio, perfect instrumentation and Getrag transmission, power, breaking, ride, solidity of body.


Worst Features

Better materials (see above).

Review

Great commuter...not quite the
performance I thought it would be,
really not much quicker than my old vw
jetta, except that it handles the
corners much much better. Fun on the
off and on ramps!!!


Best Features

handling....great seats.


Worst Features

better off the line performance...but hey, its a german car, built for the mountains.
