Surprisingly fun to drive to new BMW owner by Mathman from Virginia on 03/12/2010. Trim: 1989 BMW 325i, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I was hired to fix the clutch problem and ended up a happy buyer for $500. At excess of 185k miles (odometer stopped there years ago) this is a real winner! A $30 clutch slave cylinder and $50 to make my own 2 into 1 collector and a cherry bomb muffler and I LOVE this car. Fast and fun in rear wheel drive coupes is new for me but I must say this was the first BMW I ever drove or worked on or even sat in and I fell in love after the first mile.
Cons: Being 6' and 300 lbs I had to move the seat back four inches and have to use the toes of my 13EEE shoes/boots or my toes catch under the dash. I do not mind using add-on cup holders but I am lost in trying to aim the low beam headlights, hours of work and I still cannot get them correct.
Overall review: A very fine driving machine but if you are new to BMW and do your own repairs make sure you investigate under hood first. BMW has a well deserved reputation as being over-engineered. If you pay others to work on your BMW get one in perfect shape and less than 150k miles to avoid expensive repair costs.
