How are the e83s?
Thinking of picking up one of these cuties for the ladyfriend. Would be a nice compliment to an e90.
I know Jeremy Clarkson hated it, but things like locking diff and low range gearbox don't mean anything to me as this would be a 90% on-road and 10% deep snow/backcountry car. Besides, who expects a car to do well in the mud with summer tires? -_-
I'm looking for opinions on these. How do they hold up with high mileage? 150-200k+? We would likely put a lot of km on them, and keep it at least 5-10years .
Maintenace? I'm used to my Honda, no maintenace other than fluid changes. What are expected problems with them? Expensive parts? Rust?
Are the 2007+ LCI a much better car? I hate driving taller cars, I get the feeling they will tip over. How does this lil guy do?
Is there a place to see what are options on these cars?
I would prefer one with:
-16" wheels (cheaper tires)
-6speed (heard the autos have issues?)
Any insight would be appreciated.
