Beware - There are good ones and there are really bad ones. Choose carefully
Speedo head stopped working. So I lost vital info such as how fast I was going, how much fuel I had and (importantly) what temperature the engine was running at. Also, I was unable to view any warning messages like oil low, water low etc.. Replacing the offending part was not too expensive as I shopped around a few non-dealer parts dealers. However, the problem didn't go away and ultimately lead to the demise of the vehicle.
So, the engine blew. Had a new second hand engine fitted. It turned out that the radiator had a block and the coolant could not flow around the engine properly. I would have corrected this if the speedo head had worked. I never drove the car again.
A beautiful looking car. Not an outstanding performer, but looked good standing still, though the road handling was the highlight.
Advice - find one, take it for a test drive, forget the badge, buy a SAAB 9000 CSE 2.3 Turbo, as it puts the Beemer to shame.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
