325 first car?

So i love the 3 series, and i want my first car to be a 325 E46 coupe, but what do you guys think about that? is it to much for a young driver? offcourse im gonna drive my dads car at first to get the hang of it. But im pretty confident that im gonna be a good driver.

I followed this plan and I love my 2002 325ci! My only piece of advice is that you don't jump at the first one you see. Look around for one with good service records. You don't want to add to the money pit you acquire when you buy the car.

Driving your dads to get the hang of it is not the proper way to become a good driver. Find a local race track and look for any advanced handling, even intro to racing classes to take. Acing a drivers Ed test is no indication of what kind of driver you will be. If you wanna drive fast, find a proper way to do it and don't try to be a hot shot on the streets. Not only can you hurt yourself, You can hurt an innocent person. There is probably a local auto cross series thAt holds events monthly where you can really go challenge and build your skills. Not to mention countless tracks that hold track days at very reasonable prices. Take your driving serious on or off road and you will find you enjoy it without putting yourself or the general public In Any more danger than driving already is. . Also always look to take a class from trained professionals, I've been racing and instructing for the last 12 years and still look to those with more experience to learn more. It's great fun driving fast, but do it the right way, please!!!
