BMW E90 06' as a commuter started costing about a grand a month to up keep and I was not happy with BMW's quality. Simple stupid things started braking, for example, when it got to hot the safety regulator on the window would break and cause the window to fall. Funny thing is it happens in all models, and they deny they have a problem. anyways, 350$ for the part and installation. this happened once every 2-3 months because of southern California's heat. ANNOYING! Any hoot, with 90,000 miles approaching I waved the white flag and looked for a low cost economy car that was enjoyable to drive as an everydayer.
Hence, Me owning a FO FO! Which by the way is as fun as the BMW and with way better tech.
