    2007 BMW 335

    Worst Bimmer I've had

    Pros: handles well

    Cons: electrical system

    This car has had major electrical problems. On seemingly random occasions, the headlights have turned on while the car has been parked, draining the battery and necessitating a jump start. I've taken the car to BMW dealer many times, and communicated w/ BMW customer relations. THey've told me the car is performaing normally and the only problem they've found is the lights have been left on! However, I never leave the lights on and normally they turn off when the ignition is turned off. Watch out!

    2007 BMW 335

    A Driver's Car

    Pros: Manual transmission with 300hp twin turbo and sports package.

    Cons: RFTs

    Excellent handling with comfort. RFT's degrade handling and comfort minimally, will most likely replace with regular tires.

    2006 BMW X3

    EXCELLENT VEHICLE

    Pros: MOTOR SOUNDS LIKE A SPORTS CAR

    Cons: A LITTLE LOUDER IN CABIN AREA THAN A LUXURY VEHICLE

    THIS IS MY FIRST BMW AND IT HAS REALLY MADE A LASTING IMPRESSION UPON ME. THE X3 GAVE ME EVERYTHING THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR; POWER, ROOMY CABIN, SUV, GREAT GAS MILEAGE. IF YOU LIKE THE SMALLER SIZE VERSION OF AN SUV BUT STILL WANT ALL THE POWER THAT YOU COULD ASK FOR, TRY AN X3. IT'S MORE ON THE SPORTY SIDE WHEREAS THE X5 IS MORE LUXURY. AFTER DRIVING BOTH, THE X3 RIDES/DRIVES MORE LIKE A SPORTS CAR. LOVE MY BMW!

    2000 BMW Z3

    Very Very Satisfying

    Pros: The quality

    Cons: There is not a like least aspect of this car

    While most cars are just transportation, my Z3 is an automotive experience. The quality is excellent. The cornering is superb. The acceleration is just right for every situation. The overall ride and driving experience is fantastic. I get a big smile on my face every time I go for a drive.

    Love my first BMW

    Pros: responsiveness and a feeling when driving that I have never experienced with any other vehicle

    Cons: just want a newer model now

    drives great, unbelievable warranty for 4 years. Solid, incredible feel when driving. I never arrive late to work even if I leave late!

    2009 BMW 750

    Best Vehicle I've ever owned (duh!)

    Pros: Quality fit and finish.

    Cons: Somewhat stiff excelerator pedal.

    Superior fit and finish, very comfortable seats, especially the massaging rear seats. More than enough horsepower (to get you in trouble). And 'all' the luxuries you could ever want in a car. Very quiet ride at all speeds.

    2003 BMW M5

    The best car for a car enthusiast, with family

    Pros: Performance!!!

    Cons: Electronic bugs

    This is simply the best car out there, period. Fantastic performance, great appearance, a very comfortable 'everyday driver' with enough power and handling characteristics to astonish some 'hardcore' drivers driving 'sport cars' that cannot believe that an innocent looking four door car beat them without the noise and gadgets their cars have.
