Default Considering a BMW as my next car - 05-28-2020, 09:32 AM

Hello, I currently drive a Chevrolet Volt. Iím tired of it. I am considering a car that I can modify, and it is going to be fast. I chose BMW because I heard BMW has some of the best engines, the one that caught my eye is the N55. Is the N55 engine reliable? Also, are there any sedans with the N55 engine that i can get for $15k with around 60,000 miles or less?

The N55 has decent reliability, but a $15k, 60k+ BMW does not in general. You'll prob have to spend 20-25k for a decent N55 335i.
