A truly amazing car! Imagine true sports car handling, luxury comfort, relatively quiet......Thinking $50K? How about $5K and 28 mpg! With the BMW badge!!! My '97 318is has all that and so many aftermarket stuff to choose from! Minor mods make it faster, but costs more in gas. Still have mine and it's one of my favorites to drive in traffic or the mountain twisties! If you find one...GRAB IT!
