I am 18 and bought this car from the back lot of the dealership. It is very reliable and perfroms very well on the interstate and it is also handles very well. For my first major car with a payment I enjoy it very much.
The funniest part of it is that when I go places people always ask me "Wow, where did you find that BMW?" I just laugh and tell them that "It's the only Japanese made BMW you will ever find!"
The inside is also comfortable. The wood trim accents inside and the soft warm tones of the leather make it a great retreat for holiday, or special occasion driving.
It also has drivers side airbags and passenger airbags that are an added saftey feature for comfort.
It was not until this last week when I really understood the true saftey of it. When I was in Peoria, Illinois a driver stopped suddenly. If it was not for the four wheel anti-lock disc brakes I would have hit the back end of the car in front of me. And the amazing part was the car did not lunge forward or take a nose dive, it just yielded to a halt.
