Faults:

Bought it secondhand a bit more than a year ago with 73.000km on the odometer, which now stands at 108.000km. Since then I had replaced all four shock absorbers, front brake rotors and all brakepads. The exhaust is also about to go.

General Comments:

I absolutely love it. The handling is top-notch (I prefer RWD for greater control in all conditions). It would be even better with a bigger engine. The trunk is too small, but then my previous car was a Volvo 244, so I guess I'm spoiled :). If I can afford it, my next car will also be a BMW, preferably a 5 Series with at least a 2.0 engine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
