The steering and suspension are tight and responsive and the brakes stop strong and straight. The engine seems bit low on power, the transmission shifts fine. The tires are fairly worn producing bit of grittiness to the ride quality. THE DETAILS AND $$$$$ 1. This 1998 BMW will be sold with clear and clean California title.
