Jeez, did you just get a 540i? I hope you're keeping it.

I've never seen one in Ottawa. You could go a year up and get a Bangle creation for similar money.

...I'm looking for a second car (second to the 540). I had two leased cars, the first went back to the dealership and the second is going back on the 23rd.

740 is an awfully scary car to own IMO. Everything that can go wrong with a 540 + more. You're a brave man.

Its not a 2001, but its sexy as hell! I think his price is a bit high. You can probably get that for $10K with taxes.

I see. What do you suggest then? This potential second car is going to be my winter car and I need 4 doors. My budget is $14K - $17.

I disagree. I'm very pleased with my '00 with minimal issues.

If you really want an '01 E38 sport, you _may_ have to be willing to go to Toronto (or Montreal) to get it. Much bigger markets for BMWs.

I know this car, Girlfriends old boss owned it. I'm pretty sure it wasn't driven in the winter. It is lowered. Looks sexy as hell rolling. Only thing, PO used to always have her 2 bigs dogs in the back with nothing on the seats. I don't know how Andre got it, I know they were moving out of country and were trying to unload it.

Anyways I havn't seen it in about 2 years. May not be as minty s the last time I saw it but i'm sure it's still available. I'm guessing x-clusive was doing a consignment kind of thing with it. I bet it still in the girl I knows name. I may be able to put you in touch with them if your really interested.

So, are we meeting for coffee at M&M or what? I am doing some work on the car, but I also have to be home around 8:30 or 9 for a while, to do something I'm dreading... I have a *serious* number of nightcrawler worms in my yard and I have to pick them out. So I'm going to be skulking around with a red flashlight and some pliers. Effenhell.
