1989 BMW 3 Series iS 2.5 from North America
Low price - high performance
A little water leakage into the cabin. This was easily fixed.
Crank for sunroof was functional but quite poor. I replaced this for 30$.
This car is an unbelievable deal, you get performance and style for less than 10,000$? Best used car on the market. A must buy for all 16 year olds who want to get a nice first car without shelling out the cash needed for some of the "alternatives".
This car has huge performance. 186hp is unbelievable for a car of this size! It's very quick and can easily get you killed if you'd like, so be careful!
Durability is a big part of a car purchase, especially an import. Buy an Audi or VW and you're asking for a huge repair bill. BMW's are very popular and so there are tons of parts at local wreckers, this makes the BMW 3-series very inexpensive to maintain.
Overall a 10/10 for this automobile that completely encompasses "The Ultimate Driving Experience."
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
