E82 1-series = LAST of the old-school-type BMWs.
i'm glad i bought one while i can. have had it 2 weeks and its amazing. for those of you saying they don't sell anything that captures the spirit of the company----you're wrong! the E82 and E88 definitely did...but production is ending soon.
BMW, as a company, is definitely about to change even more BIG TIME. Whether it's all bad or not, it remains to be seen.
