sounds like someone needs a girlfriend! haha j/k vlad

well betray, the list wouldnt be so long if you didnt bust his horn now would it? but i would say go with the 328...if you want lower insurance and still a pimp ride go with 328, but why not just get like e46 323ci or 328ci? they are almost the same price!

I say if your looking for a used bimmer have a mechanic look at it. Try to buy from older people since they don't rape theirs cars and follow dealer advice to the last word. There are some really nice 328's out there if you look hard.

you'll be very happy with the e36 328is
it's got enough balls to put a smile to most of our faces, and you can get one for a decent price too without breaking your wallet. With the money you have left over you can buy a nice body kit and rims or something.
