E46! Love it. How's that AWD system? I never heard too much about it before BMW did its "X-Drive" system.

X2! Great cars though, my dad has had two BMWs and swears by them. Really safe in collisions and fast too. I actually almost got a 330ci instead of the ranger. On a side note, anyone look under a newer BMW? Looking under my dad's 08 535i it looks like a matchbox car, all flat plastic covering just about everything. They really want you to take those cars to the dealer.

That's why I said have fun. Haven't touched one recently but don't they have a plastic "panel" you have to remove to drain the oil and change the oil filter now?

They are nice cars, just a PITA to work on.

yeah have fun with maintenance. my mom drives an 05 X5 with the 4.6. amazing vehicle. but when something goes wrong. its not cheap. needed a new guage cluster. 1200. transfer case went out for the AWD system, 3500. and some random other things as well. all the good **** happened to it AFTER the warranty went away lol.

either way, nice car. bimmers are nice solid cars that USUALLY take care of you if you take care of them. lol

Yeah I know on the newer ones you have to trust the computers oil measurements because they have no manual dipstick.
