It's luxurious but you're going to pay for that luxury.

2008 BMW 1 Series

I like that it is a sporty car and that it has two doors. I like that it's a luxury brand and that everything, down to the nitty gritty details, is quality and high end. I hate that insurance is expensive, gas is expensive, and that oil changes require full synthetic. I also hate that the second cup holder is unusable because the console completely covers it when the lid is down.

The car is very dependable.

2008 BMW 1 Series

My vehicle runs fine and has not broken down overall the years I have had it. The engine runs well and the sets are very comfortable. Sometimes the locking mechanism gets stuck but it is probably due to old age. The car is very reliable since I have been on many trips in California for many days and it has never broken down.

My car make it look like a 30’s roadsters. Which makes it a sharp looking car.

2008 BMW 1 Series

My car has great lines, is comfortable and flies when you touch the gas pedal. The one problem is it has several wicked blind spots. My car is a 2008 and other than tires and brake pads I have had no problems. It starts right up does not shudder or shake, keeps solid to the road and is so much fun to drive.
