Bought it new. Been thru all the
electronic crises, a little expensive,
mostly annoying. But - the car is
definately worth the trouble. Has
always been totally reliable and a
hoot to drive.
Lousy in snow, but good winter tires
in all four corners transforms it into
an acceptable performer. Would buy it
all over again....
Bought it new. Now 15 years old, 120K on odometer, we'll make 200k easy, the ultimate keeper. Still looks great, inside and out. 20 mpg city - 29 mpg highway, low ratios keep T/E mileage down. Classic lines, never out of style. Lots of bolt-on go fast available. Any BMW over 5 years is a DIY car, dealer rates and parts will kill you.
I love my BMW. The ride is smooth and comfortable. The car is highly dependable. And what can I say about the power? Absolutely worth every penny. I was happy to find that my '93 325i (189hp) has more horsepower than a 2002 325ci (184hp).
Through every unpredictable road condition, my car has come through in every way. Through any kind of weather condition, my car has always performed, and many times, surpassed its potential. And off the line, my bimmer can take any car on. Need I mention that the only addition to my car is the dealer installed sports package?
Even after 10 years, this car is still
fun to drive. The exterior of the car
gets a lot of looks, and it has held
up very well. The safety and
performance of this car make it worth
the extra expense of buying and
maintaining a BMW.
This car has been an unmitigated
disaster from the time we got it with
only 20,000 miles. Although it drives
very well, and has a comfortable and
solid feel for a smaller car, we have
sunk thousands into it for repairs
large and larger. The worst was a blown
head gasket at 45,000 miles!
Unbelievable. Numerous motors and
switches have gone out, from the window
controllers to wheel bearings...stuff
you'd never expect from a car with so
few miles, and a BMW to boot.
