2000 BMW 3 Series

Great entry level bimmer, but don't get the automatic!
The BMW 323 is a great entry level Bimmer. I opted for a 4 door, manual shift, sport package with performance tires and it was tons of fun to drive. I used winter tires for the colder weather and the car handled surprisingly well in the snow. The maintenance & repairs were a little steep, but worth the price as the car was such a pleasure to drive. I had the opportunity to drive a friend's 323 automatic and it was way too slow. I totally recommned the 3 series, but opt for the manual shift to get the true BMW experience.

Ridiculously fun little car to drive!
I bought it when it was 5 years old and have loved it ever since.
My only complaint is the same with any luxury vehicle that is past its warranty date -- super expensive to maintain and/or fix when something goes wrong (as it always does with older vehicles). I've always been impressed with it acceleration and ability to feel confident at high speeds. The race background of this car really become obvious when handling fast turns very comfortably.

Love this sports car
This has been a great car to drive. BMW are about handling and performance and even though this car is older, it still handles really well.

The only issue was the AC can be a bit unreliable, but i guess you get that with an older car.
