Yes it is the "Ultimate Driving Machine" by Louie, Orlando, FL on 08/13/2007. Trim: 1993 BMW 325is, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Very fun to drive. For a car that is almost 14 years old you can't beat the style, performance, and reliability. Had 17" rims and a sport tune exhaust system, which made it noticably faster. Engine runs cool even in the Orlando, Florida heat, which you may as well be in an African jungle. Seems to run smoother with the full synthetic oil for high mileage. Car still can hang with some of the newer BMWs. Nobody can believe it is a 1993. I love my car.
Cons: some parts can be expensive, but once you replace it you won't have to worry about that part for a long time. It isn't too much different that some Toyotas to repair. The 5 and 7 series are the really expensive BMWs. Back seats are a little cramped....especially the 325is coupe....not easy for my daughters to get in and out of the back. Had a freak situation withelectricalbecause the wires along the hinge of the trunk got pinched when I closed it and caused about 1,400.00 to fix....and some of the electricals still act funny.
Overall review: This car is well crafted and a classic entry sport luxury sedan. Repairs can be expensive, but the quality of the parts make it so it is worth while fot the years of reliablity you get out of the car.

Awesome Car! by Dingo on 12/16/2006. Trim: 1993 BMW 325is, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the car!
Cons: The only con I have is that if it sits for about 3 days, the battery will die. I have to take out fuse #9 for the radio so the car wont die... sort of a pain
Overall review: I love it!

my bimmer by Kon - Bellevue, WA on 01/07/2008. Trim: 1993 BMW 325i, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The driving is great and its a great car to show off. its quick and can actually turn since its european. The transmission is great and the sound of the engine is amazing
Cons: like I said the driving is great... when it works!!! I have had this car for 2 1/2 years and have spent about 6 grand on repairs, the engine broke, the clutch needed to be replacedm and a bunch of other stuff.
Overall review: Well, its a great car, but when you buy it get it as extensively checked as possible. If it didn't break all the time, I would probably drive it forever. After driving this car most japanese and american cars seem really slow and boring.
