    I'm sure they're super cheap to maintain.

    :noes: How expensive could it be? How strong are the motors.

    I'm a bit of a gear head myself, so i can do a lot of the maintenance myself , but if they're like Audi's with cams and shit going out, fuck that.

    it's not so much the motor, its the electronic gremlins you gotta worry about

    oh, and having to use 10-60 castrol tws.

    and the cost of parts. and insurance.

    the E60 actually really grew on me after a while.

    the E39 is beautiful and a classic design, but it really is starting to look dated.

    seriously

    lol bigger rims and a body kit :ugh:

    lower it, springs/coilovers, fine, because honestly, it feels kinda soft.

    exhaust, whatever, yeah, sure, it'll sound awesome.

    but a body kit and some big 22" chrome nog rims? [i'm making an assumption on the rims, but seeing how jamphat is, i can only assume his brother would do such a thing].


    yeah, no thanks.
