Either way, early models of any production usually have the most problems, so stay away unless you are prepared to deal with them. That's the trade off for buying a "cheaper" car (early production models usually depreciate most).
Here we go again...

I've had many used cars - never had a tranny fail. Soldo had his fail. My friend in New Jersey had hers fail. All of them were early model 323i's. Now you are going to tell me we all don't know how to drive...
