Question by doughosie posted 7 months 2 weeks ago in BMW

Hello, I'm considering buying my first Bmw based on their reputation as a quality car. I don't have anyone who I can ask their opinion if I'm making a good choice by buying the BMW. I don't know if it's expensive car to maintain or if it's prone to break downs frequently? I would like a manual transmission but I'm told that with a manual, only rear wheel drive is available but I like the idea of an all wheel drive available with the automatic. Can anyone please offer me some advice on which way I should go? Thank you
