I will give you that you generally would need to spend that much to get one that is decent. The point is that if I was considering spending over $10k on an e30, and I had the choice of buying this car at the asking price or a $25k m3, I would elect to spend the extra money on the m3. The reason being that the m3 and Read more

I didn't say e36. I was talking about e30s.

Seriously, 12.5k is m3 territory. The paint is good, and the interior is really clean, but I want to drive it, not keep it under glass.

You know what would really do all of that and more? Stop subsidizing oil in general and move away from short sighted schemes.

What is true for you is not true for most buyers. There are many technologies that have made cars less "personal" over the years, yet the manual transmission stays as the sticking point. Fuel injection, traction control, ABS, and on and on have removed the user from having to have a connection with the car. I think Read more

I understand the sentiment of keeping the manuals around, as I greatly enjoy rowing the gears. However, as the cars in general become more advanced, from the engines, the suspension, traction control, and more, it seems kind of anachronistic to keep the same transmissions in the car, especially when the alternatives Read more

I really think the 8C looks better as well. The 8C has such a flowing design, it just looks like a dollop of cream or something, this is very busy by comparison. It looks more interesting, rather than beautiful. Maybe it's more rare, and they may have meticulously made it fancier, but the 8C is about as beautiful a Read more

You mean VW predicted, not environmentalists, right? Or like, one person. And technically, the cars they had at the time are obsolete.

Really? I must have gone to some other kind of engineering school, because that was part of my introduction to engineering class. We literally had problems to asses whether to fix a "dangerous" road. Each life was assigned a dollar amount, injuries the a slightly less amount, and compare that to the cost of the fix. Read more

Yes, but that isn't common knowledge. And if GM said to the consumers "Don't do that." It would be one thing. You know the only place I've ever heard anyone say anything about not putting heavy things on the ignition switch? Automotive repair school. So, it is not exactly a widely known thing. And clearly, other Read more

So glad companies, like GM, are looking out for all of our best interests...
