"Best car I've ever owned. Solid handling, the 1.9 engine gives me fantastic milage, fast as I ever need to go and built like a little tank. 20 years old and she still turns heads, runs like a gold watch. Buy one while they're still cheap!"

Driving bliss with top up or down.

"Leased the car Christmas week, 1998. Purchased at the end of lease. 55,000 verifiable miles. Regularly maintained at BMW dealer (not frequently, obviously, because of little use) Beautiful metallic blue. Recently did a thorough servicing for $3,500. On its second set of tires -- about 10,000 miles ago. CARFAX shows a failed inspection. That is because the dealership reset the computer in the car when it did the big servicing. I had to drive the car for 200 miles before the computer could be checked again. I did that and the car passed with flying colors. Registration is current now."

"Having taken exceptional care of this car. It has given me 162,000 plus fun free miles. Now that I am older , I just drive it on those special sunny days. The car is not fast. Still after having many different sports cars in many different countries. Thus car will still give that special road feel. Long hood is classic. Taking it out on the back country roads is what this truly is made for. Don't have to be fast. Just it and the wind in your face is all one needs."
