I've never met you, luve30, you have a very nice car and very good taste, and you are probably a very nice person.

So I won't let loose with the stream of profanity and abuse that my small twisted jealous heart is pushing up my throat and towards the keyboard. In lieu, I offer my head beaten against the keyboard a few times...

Just remember, he bought a wheel to go with his rims.

I bought a wheel to steer my car.

LOL

If its any consolation, it took me a long time to be able to afford a toy car and I'm still debating the pros and cons, especially when I'm freezing my ass off getting into my cold DD with the toy is sitting in the garage.

On that note, I need to replace my DD by April and want to get out of the leasing threadmill. I need something <$20K that's reliable and has 4/5 doors. Any thoughts? I was thinking an e36 M3 sedan but not sure how reliable that would be.

Used 2001-2005 Civic.

My mom just picked up a 2011 Civic SI Coupe 6-speed rofl. To bad I moved so couldn't tell her how bad the deal was but she paid 27k out the door. I just hate Honda but they are a reliable as ever.

I myself picked up a 02 Dodge Intrepid that didn't come with a safety or e-test. So I picked it up for 1900$ and all it needed was a two bulbs. No problems but it also came with service records since it came off the lot. Still has records (since I use my gf's work mazda and volvo dealership).

I always really liked the e36 4door M3, I'm a 2-door guy mostly but I love the lines on it and find it looks a little better than the 2door... I can't imagine the s52 being that much of a bear to maintain given its just-a-massaged-m52 nature as debated ad nauseum elsewhere. I'll leave it to an actual e36 M3 owner to comment on maintenance, though.

One thing I do know from driving a 328i in the 90s is that although there are 4 doors-- and the car is certainly bigger than an e30-- the backseat is pretty damn small, and nearly unusable with a couple six-footers sitting in the front. If you expect to be able to transport 3+ adults in comfort you might look elsewhere.

For utility and fun and a beast come winter-beating time next year, look at a WRX wagon... I don't know how committed you are to RWD, though. I wouldn't want a 4x4 to be my only car but with an M3 in the garage you could have a lot of fun with it...

And as above, if you want to be reasonable about it, its hard to beat a Civic for cost of ownership and reliability. Apparently the Koreans are really good now too. Who knows.

Holy threadjack... Alpina cars -> steering wheels -> Kias? What?

I'm going to pretend you didn't just suggest a Civic. I do not consider Civics to be legitimate modes of transportation.

You should know better.

I agree. A 1987 E30 Alpina B6 2.7 would be a great DD especially if it was a lot less money than that one.

No such thing nowadays... Real E30 Alpinas/Hartge with 0 rust and low km = BIG Bucks.

It would be a shame to drive it year round here anyway. The e34's are a lot less expensive.
