1992 BMW 3 Series 325i 2.5L I6 from North America
Reliable, sporty, trusty. I loved this car, and will definitely buy another BMW
Blower motor resistor pack went bad. Bought a used one for about $5, threw it in within 5 minutes, problem fixed.
Sunroof broke at 130000, wouldn't move period. Had to replace entire sunroof cassette in order to feel the wind in my hair again. Did it myself, surprisingly wasn't hard at all.
Window relay went bad, and unfortunately while my windows were stuck open (all of them!). Had no idea what it was for a few days, but once I realized it was just a relay, it was fixed almost instantly. Very simple to replace, I just popped it out (no screws or anything, under the dash) soldered it, and popped it back in.
Tranny output seal leaked, only while on steep hills though, and only about a drop per 2 days.
I loved this car the second I got into it, and am surely a large BMW fan now because of it.
The inline 6 motor was absolutely bulletproof. I had very little problems with the car at all, the reliability was fantastic. When I did have problems, the car was designed to be very easy to work on.
As for performance, the car handled extremely well. Had some good oopmh to it, but really excelled in the turns.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
