I like BMWs but I want an automatic. I know how to drive a 5-spd but others will drive the car that do not. That is an old car. I know that automatic transmission is going to die.
But, I've always wanted to work on cars, just not all cars. I need motivation. I want to work on my car, one that I want to fix. I'm not trying to do it for a living.
I've seen the other beginner, which is a good car to start on, but this is specific to BMW E30.
