Back in the early 70's the 2002 models were incredible, some people easily got past 200,000 miles on them. ..I had a friend who sold his at over 300,000 miles and it till ran strong.

Back then, they were the ultimate driving machine, catering to those who loved to drive sportingly and have a car that loved being driven in such a manner.

Somewhere along the late 80's into the 90's it transitioned into more of a status symbol car. Especially after the new designer, Bangle or whatever, started changing the looks. Many in the US market are now made in the US...so quality isn't what it was either.

That is not even remotely true or accurate.

What is your personal experience with BMW?
