I think a good introductory BMW is an e36. It was my first car and parts are a bit cheaper, less electrical and tech-related stuff that can break down. The e46 good too, but it requires more time and love. I've had two of each so far. Good luck with whichever you decide to go with!

+1 :thumbsup:

my first car was an e46, but it was much harder to take care of than my buddies e36. E36 will be reliable and also quite stunning if modded right. Also, an m3 might have a tad too much power for a first car... my E46 325xi brought me 2 tickets and around 850 dollars in speeding tickets and traffic school in only my first year of driving, and it only has 190 horsepower, as compared to an M3's 333...

anyway you go, stay safe and enjoy the bimmer :thumbup:

LOL@!!!! I'm ROFL really hard because this month makes it one year since I've owned my 325i and I can show you pages of speeding tickets that I have paid for. It's a humbling process haha...I'm good now though!

Def don't get an M3 as your first car because not many people can handle a lot of horse power.

A 325 is more than enough power for your first car.

You can get a speeding ticket in geo metro too.

If you are a responsible driver and have funds for it, go for m3.

But it's expensive to maintain an e46 let alone an m3.

E36 looks dated and can be had for pretty cheap but as a first car, specially a BMW, e46(any model) is a good place to start. I say go for m3 if you can.

yep.

17 years old here, rode/raced street bikes for 4 years and i have seen some crazy stuff up in the twisties. too many crazy drivers who cant handle their M's. i now own a 330ci which i am slowly modding, and then eventually plan on a M3. it packs a punch for a first car, be safe.

good luck on whatever route you decide to take :hi:

Jonshmoe 05-07-2013 11:00 AM

Not at all.

E46 is a good starter car though.

Lol e46 yes m3 no....first car means your young and don't have the funds to properly take care of an m car....I mean if u have parents ready to foot the big bill your going to have for maintenance and/if anything breaks go for it.

Also insurance on an m car when young xD have fun.

I say go 330 in a few years should u want more power, forced induction is just around the corner.
