Here is the content of an email I sent to a guy asking me what liked and disliked about my 320i:
First of all, I got the 320i Jet Black with Sports Package (Sport seats and suspension, cool steering wheel, full size spare & 16 inch wheels) and Preminum Package (sun roof, heated seats & "on board" computer). I also got the windows tinted (a must!)
--What I like--
-Handling: The car is just so amazing, taking tight turns at high speed, changing lanes really fast, etc.
-Performance: My old car was a 2001 Civic LX (117hp), so having 168hp is pretty sweet. Agreed it's like the slowest bimmer you can get, but it's still much faster than what we really need.
-It's a BMW: Coming from the Honda world, driving a BMW is just so different. People look at you differently. I just cant spot smiling anytime I see my car, or anytime I'm in the car. It's like people respect you more or something. I get looks of other people all the time. That feeling is just great. No, it's just AMAZING.
-Sun roof: I did not think it would be that cool, but I really like it. Just the fact that you can see the sky (event when it's closed) is really nice. And it's a nice alternative when you what some fresh air in the car, but you dont want the noise of the open window.
-Wheels: THe look of the car with the 16inch wheels is really nice
-It's a BMW: Dude, they heat the windshield washer fluid before sending it to the window! How cool is that!
-Breaking: The car just brakes really really really well. It's stupid, but if you are going to have some fun with the car and go a bit fast, you might as well have some really good brakes in case something happens...
-It's a BMW: Man, it's just amazing. I cant mention everything. Keyless entry. Automatic wipers and lights.
--What I dont like--
-Gas: We used to spend about 30$ a week on gas. We now spend 50$ a week on gas.
-Jet Black color: Man, when the car is clean, it looks amazing. But when it's dirty, shit does it look dirty. And crap does black get dirty fast!
Hope this helps!
