E36 Gets a Rest - Getting another car!

Well the uber e36 is finally going to get the rest it deserves... I'm going to garage it for the next year or so and do some upgrades to it that are much deserved...

I'm looking to do a full Modena Interior and a new engine... the engine may be further down the road if I go for a Euro M3 motor...

In the meantime, I'm picking up my new/used daily driver on Tuesday!

Any guesses? (Hint: It's German but not BMW)

Nice to see i'm not the only smart person. To put away your BMW to drive a VW's is pretty pointless. Your in for a world of costly repair bills and mexican reliability!

Enjoy

I love Meegis's, and I now love yours.



Meegis has been replaced by Uber e36.

nice ride ..they are tempting thats for sure!

I was so almost going to buy an a4 after my 2.8L vr..
but the mech's liked me said they wish everybody drove an a4..
average maint costs without anything actually really breaking was around $2g's a year.

but yeah i'd 'pay' to drive an S4 for a few years

I guess that's why I'm lucky to get parts at employee cost and know a VW/Audi factory tech that will work on my car after hours for cheap...

And "costly repair bills" is a subjective term. What is costly to one person, can be reasonable to another.
