BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)

Value

4 out of 5

A little overpriced for what you get.

Costs

4 out of 5

Still under manufacturer's warranty so I haven't incurred any costs yet.

Driving

4 out of 5

Good car to drive but not as good as an E36 that I had before this car.

Performance

3 out of 5

Pretty gutless when pulling away, especially when engine is cold, but this may be due to an ongoing problem that I have where the car loses all power and sometimes cuts out, but only until it reaches running temperature. BMW still trying to fix it.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Not very reliable at all until it gets up to running temp, BMW still trying to fix it (for the sixth time). I'm getting a bit fed up and don't have much faith in them as all they do is plug it in to a computer and seem to hope for the best.

Probably the most secure car I've had.

Service

3 out of 5

My local BMW dealer seem completely incompetent in fixing this problem with my car. I'm starting to get fed up taking the car back, I might stage a sit in and phone my local paper with the story if they don't give me a new engine or car.
