    2010 BMW 128 - Coupe

    Pros: the interior and the look of luxary

    Cons: nothing-but it wasnt mine

    Advice: take ur time, test drive it and give it a chance to become one with u youll love it.

    i not only test drove it but i also got a chance to experience luxary and for a moment i felt important.I asked myself could i love a car like this ,could i care for something so unique in everyway or most of all would it build up my esteem and help mt integrity, each answer was yes, but the sadest part of my entire fantacy is when i made it back to my friend house to give her back the keys .It was all over, therefore i would like that experience again this time not for to run an arrand or to drop my son off but to b able to call it my own.

    2007 BMW 335 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: the look

    Cons: getting car sick driving it

    Advice: take a long test drive

    2007 BMW 335I, SEDAN 4 DR, 3.0L L6 FI DOHC 24V, Bridgestone 18' low pro run flats. My first year has been filled with -Jerkiness when starting from a stopped position, or when geared down to corner -Lunging forward when braking. Very strong, pronounced downshifting - even at slower speeds -Harsh shifting between gears -iDrive frequently shutting down for no reason. -Low pro tires: side walls worn out after 15k miles (no refund offered)

    2006 BMW M3 - Coupe

    Pros: Amazing power and handling.

    Cons: Bit bumpy on bad roads (know the bad ones and stay off them, no big deal)

    Advice: Get the Dinan racing software installed.

    The M3 is far above and beyond all my expectations. Be sure to get the Dinan racing chip installed, once you do this the acceleration and throttle response will blow you away. I was able to get up to 184 mph and it still felt comfortable. I know the saying is overused, but it corners like its on rails. Pick one up if you can, it will take you for the ride of your life.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: The silky smooth engine!

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Buy it once and chances are you'll never own another brand.

    Truly the Ultimate Driving Machine! When sitting in the driver's seat you are well supported yet comfortable. The steering and stick feel like a handshake from an old friend. The engine is silky smooth and the transmission is flawless. The sport suspension is very tight, however, the standard suspension is comfortable for those not interested in high performance driving. A well rounded vehicle and definitely the pinnacle of sports sedans.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: bluetooth capability

    Cons: tiny wheels

    Advice: Get the Sport Package, and the Zenon Lighting

    Approaching the vehicle, you look for the sex appeal. Or any appeal of that matter. You click the unlock button. The car doesn't respond audibly, because the Anti-Theft system was not standard. Ok, fine. You look at the wheels and think geez !!! 1 maybe 2 inches would make quite a difference. After all I paid $38k for the car. Finally, I open the door and enter the cockpit. Ahhh... Now you feel understood. Now you remember why you fell in love with the car. You put in the key, and hit the start button like I do in the 750LI. I put the car in drive, (Actually DS mode) the car comes to life. Gratefull I didn't choose the complicated iDrive. I put on my playlist from my iPod. It's on for 30 seconds, until my tach exceeds 4,500 RPM. iPod off. Roar of the Inline-6 calls all the attention. Neck thrown back, knuckles white, Engine screeming. You never consider infidelity with another vehicle. Car & Driver are tuned in glorious harmony. If a car has ever had a soul. It's the new 3 series. Let's just say beauty is on the inside. Conclusion... 06' 325i is perfectly unpretentious, and a little too subtle from the exterior. Yet when you get behind the wheel and join in one accord. You know you made a sound decision when you bought the car. Great quality car, but prefer the previous 3 series styling.

    2006 BMW 325 - RWD Sedan

    Pros: Bluetooth.

    Cons: Not enough storage space.

    Advice: Don't go by all the reviews, this car is good not great, test drive one, then decide.

    The engine combined with the automatic transmission is very responsive and smooth. Handling is very good, you can take on curves without fear. The ride is not too bad for a sports sedan (then again, if you want a really smooth ride buy a grandma car like a Buick). MPG is quite good for 200+ hp V-6, I am averaging about 23MPG in the city, not bad.

    2006 BMW M3 - Coupe

    Pros: the engine

    Cons: HUH?

    Advice: life is short

    A fabulous machine. The competition package is worth every penny. The nav system is extremely helpful on a trip. The SMG transmission is a hoot and my wife and kids can drive, too. The 333 horses under the hood are always ready to run. My 2 children can fit into the back if needed. A dream car that works for me.
