Looking into getting one

Currently I drive a Chrysler Crossfire and I love it. However mechanically it is giving me some issues. It may have an imbalanced engine, causing an annoying exhaust rattle, and possibly warping rotors. Also, being in college a more practical car would be best. I was looking into a 2006 325i or 325xi. Reading reviews some report some issues with reliability. I love the e90, however, i dont have the money to keep it in the shop and be fixing stuff all the time. I was wondering what you guys have to say about it. My friend had an '09 for a year and one of the ignition coils went bad and that was all. If thats all i have to deal with I'm fine with that

Again just wondering what you guys have to say about the reliability of the 2006 e90.

Thanks and i hope to become a member of this community!

If you can't do new car with a full warranty, I would stay away from the used market, especially if you don't have shop/maintenance/fix money.
