Decent machine and getting affordable
I have two, a 2000 and a 1999. One has most things working and a rough engine. The other is the opposite. I figure that putting these tow together would tell me why I love the machine so much. It's fast enough; it handles superbly; it's comfortable, whether getting in and out a lot (around town) or on long trips. Drawbacks are that everything is electric-powered, and you'll either be lucky or you'll be chasing one power-draining problem after another. Parts (aftermarket parts) are cheap; BMW parts -- forget it. Mechanically, the car is a dreamboat. Perhaps the best $1000-$1500 car you can get, regardless of mileage. (One has a broken speedo -- I use a GPS for a speedo -- and 160k; the other has a working speedo and 234k.)
Most reliable car I have owned without any issues.
Very comfortable nice ride. Stylish yet sporty I have not gotten any issues with the car, mainly did regular maintenance. Rides smooth and fast for a heavy car like this. Still an economical car.
Good bang for the money
The car were as shown in pictures and as described. The car fax was my desiding factor well worth the investment even as I thought I would never buy a car with over 200k in miles but the Record was outstanding even compared to cars with way less miles. Thank Cars for being there.
