Well now that you have experience running various stats for all these schools, head to kbb and edmunds and start the craziness again i guess

I recall how many hours I put in when I was in the market shopping for cars.... I guess you cant go wrong with most of these.

I'm sensing a certain trend here....BMW? Let's see what Fig thinks of that.

And I would go down south and get something that hasn't been through IL winters....good excuse to get out of the cold....

The 2002 325i for $16995 looks pretty decent at 41000 miles. I like the interior - at least what it looks like in the picture. But the exterior is black, so it's gonna be difficult to keep it spic and span, especially in Chicago winters...

Its all wheel drive and will perform better on snow. Though, I must admit that the fuel efficiency is lower than 2WD. As far as 3 Series is concerned, I like the old model (E46 platform) as opposed to the new 3 Series (E90 platform). The E90s look a lot like japanese car and the grill looks like Pontiac! I wonder what the BMW guys were thinking. Though in the E90 they have significantly increased the engine power and the cockpit comfort/convinience! Make sure that you get the Navigation and the iPod link!

I didn't look it up, but I'll guess that the diesel engine is not available in the US.

It's where I consider the tactic of Audi on the US market not so well fitted on new trends
