    e36? :dunno: Not the bangled one, anyway. :down:

    I must say, that was a PIMP ride. I really dug it. Felt like it pulled pretty well for a car it's size, brakes felt SOLID and I imagine it handles pretty well. Fairly comfortable inside too- it wasn't typical BMW like I remember from teh 7-series circa 1995 or so.

    All in all:

    I WANT ONE. :o

    All I could think of what whoever's usertext it is that says "BMW: The reason why Lexus is in the relentless pursuit of perfection". :rofl:

    Wait to give me credit until after I sell the Jeep. I may end up in a Miata or a Fox Body 5.0... :o

    Only good if you can crash the Z4, new 7, new 5, or X3 and make sure it dies in a highway fire

    Won't be able to afford another C5 (most likely). :o Not for a little while anyways.

    The FD, maybe. Maintenence worries me- I hate driving something that may or may not blow up on me at any moment. :o

    Miatas and 5.slows are cheap and easy. Not to mention decently fast and fun on a road course. :hs:

    :wtc: I miss my C5.

    E39 5-Series (any of them) is the perfect BMW in my mind.

    M5 > M3
