    I've always loved the '68-'76 BMW 1600i, 2002 and 2002tii. After graduation I'll be picking one up. There's tons of fansites out there and I've driven the hell out of all the ones that have passed through the shop I work at (apologies to my customers).

    It's rather a cult car, similar to how neo geo is a cult system.

    After driving a VW, I won't get anything else.

    cheap, well built, great on gas.

    Owned - Jaguar XJ6, Cadillac CTS, Cadillac STS, Mitsubishi Lancer, Mitsubishi Montero Sport...

    Yeah it's not the fastest thing on 4 wheels and it doesn't have 400 horses under the hood but I'm really enjoying this thing. I really wanted the GT4 but they don't sell them in the states.

    Supposedly, on ford's site they had some rough specs of it, and it uses a supercharged 5.4l to produce "over 450hp and over 450lb/ft of torque". I think they took them down though, cause I can't find them now.

    BMW M3 Coupe or BMW 330CI Coupe ?

    M3 = Expensier & Faster
    330CI = Less expensive & Slower

    I only want a quality BMW two door.

    Do BMW keep their value over time?

    Don't like the convertibles, so don't answer with "Get the convertible instead"

    I was going to get an Audi A4, but will pass on them, I like BMW better.

    Btw, I hate the new 5, 6, 7, BMW series. If the 3 series or the M series change
    look, I will not buy one, will probably get Audi instead.

    A VW Corrado VR-6 with just minimal upgrades ( chip, MAS, exhaust ) is a beast. By far my favorite VW ever made.

    Out of all the cars I've ever owned my favorite was probably my 85 BMW 318i. Thing had almost 225k miles on it when I bought it for $2500. In the 3 years I kept it I put nearly 75k more miles on it and nothing ever broke. Just changed the oil and replaced the break pads once. The 80's models BMWs were built to last. Some asshole in a Explorer ran a red light and killed it.

    Personaly, I think the American M3's are very overpriced. Our smog laws force them to kill off ALOT of HP that the euro versions have.

    For cheaper than a new M3 you could get a mint cond. 8-series. They're rather bland looking, but they'll dust any M3 stock. Things are fast as hell.

    Yeah, I'm a fan of older BMWs as well. The only new BMWs I'm even interested in is the M5 and M6 and that's not because of their looks.

    I'll most definitely keep diesels in mind when I start searching.

    An older 3 Series BMW is another option, heard nothing but good things. I'm in agreement about the current model 5-7 series being ugly as shit. The headlights make me sick.

    Also, pretty much any 8 series is pure sex.

    I like the older BMW's too. But would like to get a new one, and I too agree,
    M3's are way overpriced, that's one of the things keeping me away from it.
    Also insurance it's hard to get I guess for the M3's. I called two insurance places
    where I have friends, and I have a clean DMV record, they wouldn't accept
    a M3 though.

    I'm deciding between a Hyundai Tiburon or a Mazda3.

    Opinions? Driven either one?

    Or any other cars in the price range (don't go higher, I'm putting a cap on that)

    In the end, I may just go with the one that has cheaper insurance.

    Thought about a Toyota Corolla XRS? 170 hp and six speed manual tranny. I test drove one and it's definitely a car I'm interested in buying.

    A car enthusiast thread eh? Not too bad, lets see how long it lasts.

    As much as I want to have the Lancia Delta S4 as a car, it would be near impossible to find one, let alone pay the ridiculous amount of money it sells for. The next best thing would be the 4 time championship winner: the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. I was thinking about getting the 8, but after hearing about the annoncement of the Evo 9, i'll think i'll wait till it comes out so I can get it. I just hope the insurance doesn't kill me by the time I can get one.It would be a nice step up from the beater i'm currently driving (a '94 Camry).

    One of my "dream cars" would be a black 7-series.

    I never noticed that.
    Anyways, give me a Corvette C6 coupe (regular or Z06), and I'll die a happy man.

    Finally something we can agree on! Yes, I'd love a C6 Corvette Z06.

    500 hp and dry sump? This is a race car!
