I have always like German cars, specially BMWs, that's why I now own a 2006 BMW 325i . I commute to work and university on a everyday basis. I have entourter little maintenance stuff that needs to be fix or replace, but car performance overall it's amazing! Those in line 6 motors are legendary! Can't brake those things easy. I'll recommend to see the pros & cons of every vehicle, BMW in specific maintenance could get expensive, not because parts are expensive, but labor it's extensive plus very few shops have BMW tools to do the job.

The relatively low miles on the engine versus the pristine interior condition. The service record and exterior cosmetic condition also played a factor. It was obvious the car was well cared for and only lightly driven. My test drive seem to suppose that supposition. Commuter car use - only 3-5 miles per day.
2000 BMW M+ROADSTER
I bought this car as a "toy" to drive on nice summer days, and it doesn't disappoint. I don't think I've ever had the convertible top up! It's very fast, it turns heads wherever I go, and is really a source of pure driving enjoyment. It lacks many things a more "modern" car has, but that's part of its charm. My wife loves it and she has commented on several occasions after a drive what a stunningly beautiful car this is.

2001 BMW X5
Bought it because it's a look of car for the $4000-$5500 range. All the options and generally luxurious. Beats most SUVs out there hands down. However, you gotta be able to spot a bad one.
