    As I said I surely don't expect it to handle like say my old is200 but for what it is its a perfect car for every occasion.... well every occasion in my diary that is!

    Most people are surprised when they drive it....cos it sure don't drive how it looks (like a barge)
    No disagreements regarding its boss status..

    If the 4.4L came in manual under 35K, I'd genuinely consider it

    I know V8's are getting cheap....I'm not sure how cheap? never even bothered to look.

    I wouldn't want to be paying the fuel bills of the V8! However if I was in the market for a V8 I'd of bought a Cayenne instead.

    Sadly the new Cayenne Diesel comes in at double what I had to play with.

    I have test driven a 135i and a 130i.. i would sugest trying the 135i 1st, amazing drive, i was very close to buying one but decided it would be a stupid thing to track.. they are built for the daily driver and to be serviced and maintained by BMW (for example, you cant jack them up without a special tool or breaking them, they have run flats to get you to the service centre

    I'd love a 335i but it's $20k minimum out of my price range and I dont particularly like the 1 series coupe shape, even if it does have the 3L twin turbo engine.

    Anywhere between 25-35k. I looked for an E46 M3 but can't find anything reasonable for sub $45k.
    I've been trying to hold out for a bit longer and gather more funds but its getting difficult and I'm dieing for a fucking new car
