Fun with Opportunities to Repair
By briodo on


2000 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


This is my first BMW, bought used at 80k miles, now has 134K miles and it's falling apart.
While the car is a blast to drive, it has cost me more over the last 2 years than the car is worth.
And it now needs the CVC valve replaced, quoted at $900, far from the amount in the reliability section.
If the car starts honking, you know this valve is gone.

C'est la vie; fast cars, pretty women, and good wine.
It somehow will not be as much fun in a Toyota.
Just cheaper.

Best Features

hitting the gas at 75 on the interstate and finding out you can get to 110 really fast.

Worst Features

Less plastic parts to become brittle and break.
