1984 BMW 3 Series e 2.7eta from North America
Superb handling, great economy
Brake Master Cylinder.
Replaced water pump, timing belt under normal maintaince.
Alternator mounting cylinders.
Cold start injector.
Car is beautiful to drive and own. Very easy to work on and the layout of the engine compartment is much easier to work on then the prelude I was used to.
The acceleration isn't the greatest, but 30mpg on regular gasoline is nice since it is a daily driver. Get compliments on it frequently because of its classic style.
The handling is superb and the ergonomics are great. One of the best fitting cars I've driven being 6 feet tall.
I would recommend this car to anyone who is willing to do maintaince themselves. Mechanic labor is extremely expensive and completely offsets the low purchase price if you have to take it in to a shop for anything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
