    The S imo is a good car
    its light and not too shabby on power

    I would buy one as another car
    but i personally probably wouldn't have it as my daily driver

    just my .02

    It looks like a pretty nice car
    The interior is nice
    Conversations like this can be intense.

    They look like pretty interesting rides. Shadow Tinting has a couple of regular Coopers, they've been autocrossing with them and stuff. The interiors are pretty nice, interesting layout. Good power, great handling and fantastic stopping power. Not sure I'd own one, but they certainly do look interesting.

    hmmmm.....a BMW 5 series or a Mini......can't beleive you're even contemplating that.
    stick with the Bimmer and forget about the little keychain car.
    Just my opinion.

    Those Minis sure do handle awesome at the local AutoX. Depends on what you're looking for I guess, high performance (Mini) or luxury (528).

    I'd buy one in a heartbeat for its price point

    only one thing puts me off from it : FWD.

    I'm to say his 5-series isn't 15 years old - it's a 1997! It's his choice of course, just can't see why he would!

    yeah it says 97 in his first post.

    still, i wouldn't look at MOST cars if i had a 97 528i, that is an awesome car with crazy potential.

    and for 30 grand!?!?!? you would REALLY have to just want one for the sake of wanting one for that kinda cash.

    for 30K you could get a Celica, RSX...need i go on?

    just doesn't make sense to me.

    my point is that the car looks like it belongs on my keychain, not on a track...that's just my opinion of course.
    i just don't like the car, especially for 30k.
    in case you're wondering, i have read the specs on it, which are fine, i just don't like the package that it comes in, that's all.
