"This is a fun, fast, comfortable, good handling, not quite luxury sports coupe. I love driving it and it also gets great mileage. I usually get close to 30 driving 70 on highway trips. I like that it's small. The 3 series is too big for what I wanted. But it does hold enough for me to go on a long camping trip. Only problem so far after 15k miles is that rear deck tail light came loose. Replaced with an upgraded part under waranty. The basic BMW inline 6 has been around forever and I expect it to be completely reliable."
Cons: "I miss a manual....but I cannot match shift speed!"

"This car does it all in a small package. Chose it after having driven 5-series for 150k miles and test driving 3-series. It's not much smaller than a 3 and it gets up and goes much faster. Feels rock solid. And it is comfortable, surprisingly so for its size.
And no problems whatsoever after having the fuel pump issue serviced the one time. So impressed my wife leased a convertible!"
"This car is amazing, a feat of engineering and work or art. The car drives like a dream with plenty of power and terrific handling. The interior is simple, elegant and intelligently designed. There's nothing negative I can say about this car. I love it."
