BMW 3-Series Coupe (99-06)


4 out of 5

A little overpriced for what you get.

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

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.

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.

Looks good and a bit of a head turner.

Very comfortable car.

Probably the most secure car I've had.

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.



Cuts out or loses all power when cold.




Did you buy the car new?

Would you buy the same model again?

Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
