    I have 2,000 ish to put down, i'm thinking something like a 325i, i want something really reliable, i'm in college and can't afford expensive repairs left and right.

    i wish i could cross post this, i'm open to any cars, i like the lancer OZ a lot. domestic, euro, asian, whatever, i just need a car.

    you want something reliable without repairs and yet you are looking at a used BMW

    the E30 can be very reliable. both the 318is and 325is would be good choices. however, it's unlikely it will quite as cheap to own as a used honda. there is a lot of great used cars for less than $8k. something like a '95 prelude vtec would be a good choice. or something like a '95 integra gs-r is another awesome choice although insurance on the integra is going to be on the higher side.
